Arsenal and Bournemouth go head-to-head at the Emirates Stadium in a clash the hosts have to win to preserve the fourth place, currently endangered by the presence of Manchester United.
The Gunners come into this meeting after picking up two straight wins across all competitions, but they still have a long way to go before ensuring the Champions League promotion. Arsenal’s main advantage in this contest could be their impressive home form. They have racked up a seven-game PL home winning run, scoring 2+ match goals on six occasions while keeping a clean sheet three times in the process. Another promising fact for Unai Emery is that his team outplayed Bournemouth in all three of their previous H2H clashes at this venue, with a +7 goal difference (S8, C1). The Gunners have also provided the neutral with enough entertainment in the past four weeks, with five of their last seven races across all competitions producing over 2.5 goals.
On the other hand, the visitors seem to have stuck in another crisis after securing two consecutive PL triumphs as they go into this fixture carrying a three-game winless run on their backs (D1, L2). Currently sitting 10th, with a ten point lead over 18th-placed Southampton, the Cherries still have reason to worry about their top-flight status, but Eddie Howe can’t be happy to see his team losing eight successive PL road battles. In that period, Bournemouth have conceded 23 goals, allowing over 1.5 goals per match in every single game, while scoring just three goals, failing to hit the net five times in the process. Bournemouth’s disappointing road displays are the reason why only Fulham suffered more defeats away from home than Howe’s men (10) this campaign.
