Date: February 7, Sunday, 2016
Start time: 13:30 GMT
Bournemouth hosts Arsenal in a match of the 25th round of the “Premiership”. The match at the stadium “Dean Court” is on Sunday, February 7, at 13:30 GMT.
Bournemouth made a good start to the season. Callum Wilson scored goal after goal, but the team began to experience difficulties when striker suffered a serious injury. Nevertheless, “The Cherries” managed to overcome the crisis, and their good results in the Premier League were not late. Eddie Howe’s side beat Crystal Palace as a guest last weekend will seek to extend their unbeaten in the league to four matches.
The main objective of the team remains unchanged – staying in the top flight. They are on the right track and to secure more calm they need a good result against Arsenal. New signing Benik Afobe showed great form since joining the club and is expected to lead the attack against the home of Arsenal. Bournemouth are headed to their fourth victory at home this season, but they will have to perform very strongly if you want to take three points from the match.
Arsenal desperately wants to return to the top of the Premier League, but it seems that they are not able to cope with stress. “The Gunners” show poor football in 2016 and are four match winless run in the league. In the last round they failed to beat Southampton at home, finished 0:0 and many believe that this result ruined their hopes for the title.
Tomas Rosicky, Jack Wilshere and Santi Cazorla remain injured. Per Mertesacker suffered punishment for red card against Chelsea and is expected to return to the starting lineup, while Danny Welbeck is not yet ready to start in first eleven.
“The Gunners” are five points behind leaders Leicester and Manchester City and a new misstep would mean the end of their ambitions for more than a place in the top four this season. In the coming weeks, Arsenal face Leicester and Manchester United, which means that the team should seek necessarily win in the upcoming match and expect to win the three points at”Dean Court”.
