The international break is finally over, and Arsenal head to Bournemouth looking to extend their unbeaten streak to seventeen in all competitions.
With a win against the Cherries, Arsenal can cut the gap to Chelsea and the top four in the league table to a single point. A win for Bournemouth, however, would lift the mid-table team from eighth to sixth. Both sides will want to kick off the next few weeks of league play with three points. The Gunners may also want to consider getting off to a quicker start in the first half—their lives would be easier if they didn’t have to do it all in the last forty-five minutes of matches.
There are no surprises or new additions on Arsenal’s injury list—Nacho Monreal has a hamstring issue, Laurent Koscielny isn’t quite ready for league games, and Danny Welbeck doesn’t have a timetable for his recovery from a broken ankle yet, but everyone else is healthy. Bournemouth will be missing Joshua King, one of their more reliable goalscorers, as well as Adam Smith, Jefferson Lerma, Junior Stanislas, and keeper Asmir Begovic.
