Premier League: Bournemouth vs Arsenal

Bournemouth vs Arsenal Betting Tip and Predictions. In the Round 20 of Premier League, Bournemouth host Arsenal at the Vitality Stadium. Read below betting preview, betting tips, useful info and betting predictions for the match between Bournemouth vs Arsenal.

Bournemouth started this season in Premier League very good and after 19 rounds they are standing in the middle of the table. Their primary goal this season is to avoid the relegation and play in the best football league in England next season. Home side is far away from the relegation zone, but they want to secure their place in league as soon as possible. The match against Arsenal won’t be easy for The Cherries, because visitors have ambitions for the title and they are playing very good in the recent period, but home team play very good upfront their supporters and they will be fully motivated to stay unbeaten. Bournemouth scored at least one goal in almost all matches in all competitions this season at Dean Court, so they hope that can hit the net against Arsene Wenger‘s men. The only match that they failed to score was against Spurs in the goalless draw.

Arsenal stand at the 4th position in Premier League with 9 points less than leader Chelsea, so they have to win this game in order to stay in the race for the title. If they win this game, they will move up on the 3rd position. In the previous round Arsenal beat Crystal Palace 2-0, when we saw probably the best goal in Premier League this season scored by Olivier Giroud. Visitors are not impressive on away ground in the recent period. In the last 4 away league games, they have managed to win only one game, but to be honest they have played against very strong opponents such as Manchester United, Manchester City and Everton. They are favorites to take three points against Bournemouth, but it won’t be an easy job and they will have to prove on the pitch that they are better. Olivier Giroud got back in the squad and alongside Alexis Sanchez they both could make many problems to home defenders.

Team News

Home side miss Jack Wilshere, who is ineligible against his parent club, while Cook and Pugh are both injured. On the other side, visitors miss Mohamed Elneny who left the club and joined Egypt at the Africa Cup of Nations, while Mesut Ozil, Theo Walcott and Kieran Gibbs are all doubtful. Santi Cazorla, Mathieu Debuchy, Yaya Sanogo, Danny Welbeck and Per Mertesacker are all long term absences.
