Arsenal have won just two of their last eight league games.
Bournemouth v Arsenal - Sunday 13:30, Sky Sports
After a tough run of fixtures that saw them play three of the top four and lose by an aggregate of 9-0, Bournemouth have since gone unbeaten in three but they face another of the Big Six as Arsenal visit the Vitality Stadium. However, this is a good time to play the Gunners as they’ve won just two of their last eight league games and were knocked out of the FA Cup by Nottingham Forest in their last outing. Five of their last seven in the league have finished all-square though, including three of their last four trips to bottom-half teams and we fancy Eddie Howe’s side to get a point.
This match finished 3-3 last season, a result that also happened in Bournemouth’s penultimate home game. The Cherries’ last five matches have seen 21 goals in total, while both sides have scored in each of Arsenal’s last four (and at least twice in three of those). Half of Arsenal’s last 14 trips to bottom-half teams have had at least four goals and our banker is for there to simply be Over 2.5, though we wouldn’t put anyone off a punt on the 2-2 at 14/1.
Ryan Fraser has been given a starting role in recent times and has shown what he can do, netting three goals in his last four appearances at home, including the opener twice. He should have plenty of opportunities against an Arsenal defence that’s conceded eight in their last four as they’ve been hampered by injuries to Monreal, Koscielny and Kolasinac.
