Bournemouth the ideal opponent for Arsenal to get back to winning ways

Posted on November 25, 2016 by Crippy Cooke

Arsenal welcome AFC Bournemouth to the Emirates Stadium in the Premier League on Sunday afternoon, in a game that should see the home side come out of top to return to winning ways after a mini slump in recent weeks. The Gunners have failed to win four of their last six, but face a Bournemouth side struggling for goals on the road and consistency which could see Arsene Wenger’s men bouncing back.

Arsenal are fourth in the Premier League table, coming off the back of three winless games from their last four. The Gunners are still unbeaten since their opening game of the season but haven’t been picking up as many points which has seen the slowly sliding down the table. Goals from open play have been few and far between of late too, but Sunday’s opponents Bournemouth might be a formbuster.

The Cherries are 10th in the league with 15 points from a possible 36, having won just once from their last four. Bournemouth have won just once on the road, scoring only four times from the six away outings, averaging just 0.5 goals in their last four games overall. Bournemouth have shipped two or more goals in three of their previous four on the road too, which could see the floodgates finally open for an impotent Arsenal side.

Arsenal are 2/5 to win against AFC Bournemouth on Sunday afternoon at the Emirates Stadium. Will the Gunners get back to winning ways?
