Arsenal v Bournemouth Spurs Betting Predictions | Premier League BettingPublished November 24, 2016
Without meaning to cause any offence to Bournemouth, Arsenal will be looking forward to the probability of ending a winless run this Sunday. Not that they don’t view every game as winnable but some are more winnable than others. Games against Spurs, Manchester United and Paris Saint-Germain are tough and tend to go either way. Their record against Bournemouth is different. Arsenal have won all three of their previous meetings with the Cherries.
Arsene Wenger urged fans not to worry after the 2-2 draw with PSG at the Emirates. He reminded them that this squad has a special spirit. At the very least, they’re tough to beat. Arsenal haven’t lost any of their last 18 matches. That means that they haven’t been defeated in any competition since their opening day defeat to Liverpool in the Premier League.
If they can turn draws into wins then it’s all good. It helps to have an in-form striker like Olivier Giroud. The much-maligned Frenchman has scored five goals in his last five games and they often come at crucial times in games. Last weekend, he deflated United when he came off the bench to nod in Arsenal’s first shot on target. He stepped up to score from the spot in midweek.
Bournemouth returned from the international break to win away at Stoke City to move up to tenth in the table last weekend. That didn’t stop Eddie Howe from raging about refereeing decisions after the game. He wouldn’t complain about getting a bit of assistance here.
Arsenal predicted XI: Cech, Gibbs, Koscielny, Mustafi, Jenkinson, Özil, Coquelin, Xhaka, Sánchez, Giroud, Walcott
Bournemouth predicted XI: Federici, Francis, Daniels, Cook, Aké, Gosling, Arter, Wilshere, Stanislas, Wilson, King
