Bournemouth v Arsenal: match preview

Arsenal, while enjoying a 16-game unbeaten run, bizarrely will be feeling pressure to keep up with their rivals after three successive draws. A trip to Bournemouth hardly represents the best opportunity for this but they should still have enough on paper. Eddie Howe’s side were unlucky to lose to Manchester United in their last home match and always create chances for Callum Wilson. How hungry the England international is to expose Arsenal’s suspect backline and keep his excellent season running could determine the outcome. Graham Searles
