Arsenal vs Bournemouth Premier League

The match is over.
Score: 1-0.

Two teams that could do with an emphatic win to show how serious they are about achieving their goals in the Premier League this season face off in North London, with the home side likely to be the bookies favourites on this occasion.

Predictions

Arsenal come into this game off the back of their clash against Manchester United on Monday night, a fixture that has the potential to be a season-shaping result.

Bournemouth are on a decent run of form in the Premier League, but couldn’t extend their winning run to three games as they could only draw at home to West Ham.

Arsenal’s exploits in the Europa League might stretch their squad this season at times, but for the moment it’s giving a lot of young players a chance to shine and some may even feature in this game here.

Eddie Howe’s side beat Southampton and Everton between their draw against West Ham and their loss against Leicester, but they were also knocked out of the Carabao Cup away at Burton Albion.

Arsenal’s win against Nottingham Forest in the League Cup was the perfect chance to give younger players some minutes and some confidence, so look out for the likes of Bukayo Saka or Joe Willock.

The Gunners will befavourites for this game so it shouldn’t be a surprise that they’re heavily backed for the win. It’s safe to back them for the win if you go with a big score line and a specific goal scorer to boost the odds. 3-0 could be the way to go on the former.

 

Betting Tips

The Gunners are favourites for this clash so a home win isn’t something to back solely, but to back a 3-0 win is a good bet. The Cherries fans will travel up in numbers and will give it their best shot to get something out of this game and this is among the best online betting odds for this round of action.888sport have it as 19/2.

Of all the attacking talent Arsenal have, why back Guendouzi, a central midfielder? It seems strange but bear in mind that none of the attackers have particularly strong odds because they’re expected to score, while Guendouzi has been playing with freedom to go forward times during home games. It may not be a long shot with this bet rated at 19/2 by 888sport.
