Arsene Wenger has confirmed his lineup as Arsenal travel to the South Coast to take on AFC Bournemouth.
It’s a big match for Arsenal and perhaps even a look into the future.
Alexis Sanchez isn’t in the matchday squad as he prepares for his likely impending move to Manchester and reports suggest that he hasn’t even travelled with the team.
That story will presumably dominate the match today but Arsenal still have to do a job on the pitch.
They’ve had some tough matches against AFC Bournemouth in the last couple of years and, presumably, this one will be no different.
