Bournemouth vs Arsenal Premier League

Sunday November 25th, 13:30

Separated by just a place in the Premier League, Bournemouth will be looking to move within a point of an Arsenal side who have not lost in 10 league outings.

Predictions

Arsenal may admit they were a tad lucky to get a 1-1 against Wolves in their last outing but doing so extended their winning run to and impressive 16 matches in all competitions.

But draws in each of their last three matches means they are still a little way off the front-runners in the Premier League.

The fact that Bournemouth sit only one place behind Arsenal is seventh speaks to how well their season has gone so far.

Things haven’t been so rosy of late, losing 2-1 to Manchester United and Newcastle, and the misery may pile on as they go on to face table-toppers Manchester City and Liverpool in the coming weeks.

But Arsenal may not as stern a test, especially considering Bournemouth’s strong home form. Arsenal have been tough to beat too, meaning this could likely end in a 2-2 draw.

Betting Tips

If matches finished at half-time, Arsenal would be 19th in the Premier League, behind only Cardiff City. They have yet to enter half time in the lead in the league this season, mounting comebacks against Wolves, Liverpool, Crystal Palace and Leicester City in recent games. Whatever manager Unai Emery says after half time, it works.

His substitutes work to with six of their last 10 goals in all competitions coming off the bench.

The Bournemouth striker has a perfect record against the Gunners, scoring in all three of his Premier League appearances against the London side. He will be looking to add to the seven goals he has scored for the Cherries this campaign, buoyed by a debut goal for England during the international break.
