Arsenal welcome AFC Bournemouth to the Emirates tomorrow hoping to end a run of three consecutive draws. Wins for Liverpool and Manchester City mean that the Gunners simply have to take all three points from Eddie Howe’s men tomorrow afternoon.
Matchday: Team News – Predicted Lineup – Betting Preview
Match: Arsenal v AFC Bournemouth
Stadium: The Emirates Stadium
Kick-Off (GMT): Sun 27 Nov 14:15
Here’s how we think Arsenal will line up:
GK) Petr Cech
- Troy Deeney blasts Arsenal citing ‘poor management’ over Mesut Ozil exile
- Midfield ace’s agent ‘honoured’ that Arsenal are keen on transfer deal
- Ex-caretaker boss Freddie Ljungberg reveals why he had to leave Arsenal
Petr Cech will return to the starting lineup for the match at the Emirates. Arsenal haven’t kept a clean sheet in five matches and the Czech stopper will be hoping to change that tomorrow afternoon.
RB) Carl Jenkinson
He had a big hand in the second Arsenal goal in midweek and will be hoping for more of the same. Carl Jenkinson has done well in Hector Bellerin’s absence considering how little the Englishman has played in the last twelve months.
CB) Laurent Koscielny
The Frenchman will be hoping for a better performance from the defence than the one against PSG. Arsenal were torn to shreds by Edinson Cavani and Lucas Moura, particularly in the second half and the defence will need to improve.
CB) Shkodran Mustafi
Another defender who will be looking for a better performance on Sunday is Shkodran Mustafi. It was one of the German’s worst outings in an Arsenal shirt on Wednesday and things will need to improve if Arsenal are to take all three points from the Cherries.
LB) Kieran Gibbs
We expect Kieran Gibbs to keep the left-back slot for the AFC Bournemouth match after Nacho Monreal was dropped to the bench in midweek. Gibbs put in a decent performance and offers more of an attacking threat than the Spaniard.
