On Saturday afternoon, Arsenal host Crystal Palace at the Emirates Stadium, as the Gunners look to get back to winning ways.

On Sunday afternoon, Arsenal travel to the south coast to face Bournemouth at the Vitality Stadium, as the Gunners attempt to keep pace with the league’s top-four.

Bournemouth are unbeaten in their last three Premier League games after one win and two draws in the English top-flight. However, last time out the Cherries drew 2-2 with Wigan in the FA Cup third round. They now face a trip to the DW Stadium for a replay.

Eddie Howe’s side are just a point above the relegation zone, despite that improvement in recent form. One of the home side’s main problems of late has been conceding goals, as they have conceded two or more goals in four of their last five top-flight outings.

The home side’s poor recent form has seen the side from the Midlands drop to 14th in the second tier. Forest have also been poor on home soil in recent weeks, losing three of their last four games at the City Ground, failing to score in all three defeats.

Arsenal heads into Sunday’s FA Cup third-round tie at Championship Nottingham Forest confident of progressing to the fourth round.

Some have rather underplayed the Gunners record of winning the FA Cup in three of the last four years. However, it is an impressive record considering that the grand old competition is now taken quite seriously by most of the English football big guns.

In truth, the FA Cup maybe Arsenal’s best hope of collecting silverware this season. The Gunners are currently odds of 10/1 to win the trophy this season, sixth favourites behind the Gunners other top-six rivals in the betting.

Arsenal recorded a 3-2 win at Crystal Palace on Thursday night in an entertaining Premier League clash.

The Gunners dominated the early proceedings, with Calum Chambers seeing a shot from outside of the area blocked before Granit Xhaka fired over the bar from just outside the box.

The home side had their first real sight of goal on 16 minutes, as Yohan Cabaye’s effort from 20 yards out went just wide of Petr Cech’s post. At the other end of the pitch, Alexis Sanchez and Mesut Ozil combined well to find Xhaka in the area, but the midfielder saw his shot on goal blocked.

On Thursday night, Arsenal travels to Crystal Palace’s Selhurst Park, as the Gunners look to cut the gap on fourth place Liverpool.

The home side are unlikely to be easy opponents, as the Eagles are now undefeated in their last eight games in the top-flight. However, Roy Hodgson’s team have drawn five of those eight undefeated games.

The Eagles are by no means out of the relegation scrap, despite an improvement in fortunes of late. In fact, they are 16th in the top-flight table, just a point above Bournemouth who occupy the last relegation spot in the top-flight.
