Arsenal managed to keep hold of Alexis Sanchez beyond this summer from the clutches of Manchester City and the Gunners will hope that he would do better than he did in their last match against Liverpool, where he was a total stranger to his team mates.
The Gunners have started the season in a bad way after failing to follow up their opening day win over Leicester City with another win as they have gone on to lose their last two games against Stoke City and Liverpool, some of their stars like Mesut Ozil starred during the international break and Arsene Wenger will hope that he replicates that form when he gets back to London. They currently have just three points from their opening three games and playing a Bournemouth team that is equally struggling offers them an opportunity to get their second win of the season.
Bournemouth is still searching for their first league win of the season and although they are known to start their league seasons in a dismal way, Eddie Howe will be desperate for them to start winning games. The Cherries remain a goal scoring threat when they play away from home as they have scored in 11 of their last 15 away matches in the league but their defence has been generous with opposing teams and that could be their undoing in this game.
We believe the Gunners would bounce back in this game.
