Arsenal vs Bournemouth Match Preview
Arsenal are back in the Premier League’s top four on merit and expected to stay there by beating Bournemouth for a second home win in four days.
At this stage, the table indicates the Gunners have every chance of qualifying for next season’s Champions League because the only team challenging them with a game in hand is Chelsea, who would need an emphatic win at home to Brighton to overtake them.
And yet the bookmakers still rate Unai Emery’s side as less likely than both Chelsea and Manchester United to finish fourth behind Liverpool, Manchester City and Tottenham.
However, the midweek fixtures provide Arsenal with a great opportunity to improve their situation with Chelsea facing Tottenham and an injury-hit Manchester United making an awkward trip to in-form Crystal Palace.
After seeing off Southampton with a 2-0 victory at the Emirates Stadium on Sunday, something similar is expected from Arsenal against Bournemouth whose away form has completely gone to pot – they have lost nine in a row on their travels.
There is no apparent reason why the Cherries should suddenly turn the form book upside down and with Arsenal generally very solid at home in the league this term, a routine success similar to the one they achieved at the weekend is fully expected.
