Arsenal Vs Bournemouth EPL 27 February Preview

Arsenal will be hosting Bournemouth at the Emirates on the back of four wins in five league outings and will be looking to hold on to fourth place position on the league’s table.


Arsenal have two real chances to get into the Champions league competition come next season and they wouldn’t give up one for the other.

The Gunnners are now seven points off Tottenham and a win here and another against their North London rivals over the weekend could see them reduce the difference to as little as one point considering that Tottenham will be locking horns with Chelsea away from home.

Arsenal have come up with 35 points from their last 13 home outings, a run that can only be matched by the pair of Liverpool and Manchester City and are sure the favourites coming into this fixture.

The Cherries have been condemned to 11 defeats in their last 17 matches and look very distant from the form they started the season with.

Although Bournemouth surprisingly trashed Chelsea 4-0 and seemed unplayable against some teams they have looked poorer and weakened in some other games.

They would be aware that they need to tap into their killer instincts if they are to come away with anything from this match.

David Brooks and Callum Wilson are big misses for the Cherries but they will be looking to see what surprises they could stir up.
