Match preview

Seeking a 4th Premier Organization win on the bounce to remain in control of their title destiny, Arsenal welcome relegation-threatened Bournemouth to the Emirates on Saturday afternoon.

The Gunners thumped Everton 4-0 on Wednesday evening to extend their lead at the summit, while the Cherries' newest contest ended in a 4-1 defeat to Manchester City.

Duplicating their one-goal victory over the league leaders at Goodison Park from a few weeks earlier was always mosting likely to be an uphill struggle for Everton, that delivered objectives at will to Collection once their resistance was ultimately broken in the 40th minute.

Gabriel Martinelli - who netted a brace - as well as Bukayo Saka both hit dual numbers for the Premier Organization season, while Martin Odegaard also got in on the act in the 2nd half, as the Gunners' excellent revival from their mid-season blip continued in front of their ardent fans.

Having actually made complete use their game in hand, Collection have actually re-established a five-point lead over Guy City in top place - taking a massive 60 points from their opening 25 games of the season - although the champs can close that void for a couple of hrs when they meet Newcastle United on Saturday lunch break.

Success over Everton marked just a 2nd win from their last 5 Premier Organization contests at the Emirates for Mikel Arteta's guys, yet they are firmly back to their free-flowing best and have confirmed experienced at breaking down low blocks - many thanks in no little part to the imaginative influence of Oleksandr Zinchenko, whose "magic" help for Saka's opener was lauded by Arteta.

Not given that shedding to Brentford on the opening day of last period have Arsenal stopped working to defeat a newly-promoted side in the Premier League - winning each of their last eight such games - and those making the long trip north from Bournemouth will certainly no doubt traveling in misguided hope as opposed to assumption.

Gary O'Neil's plant would certainly have been roared on by the Toolbox faithful to pull off a shock outcome versus Male City, but despite putting in a valiant performance on their own lawn, the wealth of top quality in the champs' ranks ultimately radiated with.

Erling Braut Haaland, Phil Foden, Julian Alvarez and a Chris Mepham own objective all added to the Cherries' downfall, yet a late Jefferson Lerma initiative was just incentive for their plucky initiatives at the Vitality Arena, although tenacious initiatives do not put points on the board.

Facing Guy City, Toolbox as well as Liverpool was not what the medical professional ordered for Bournemouth following their very first post-World Mug win against Wolverhampton Wanderers two weekends earlier, as well as O'Neil's team remain below the populated line in 19th location, however they just have a one-point deficit to make up to Leeds United in 17th.

A duration of sharp purchases in January is yet to thrive for Bournemouth, whose post-World Cup points (five) as well as goals (4) tallies are the most awful in the Premier League, and all 8 of their previous Premier Organization games versus the side sitting in first place have actually ended in defeat.

Collection were quite in pink at the Vigor Arena back in August, generating the goods in an uncomplicated 3-0 victory while wearing their brightly-coloured strip, however also those tee shirts are not as striking as their rise for Premier Organization superiority.

No gamers need to leave the Emirates infirmary this weekend break, as Gabriel Jesus as well as Mohamed Elneny both continue to recover from knee injuries, however the former is currently dealing with the ball at his feet once again at London Colney as well as can return later this month.

Arteta has actually been handed a fresh concern with Eddie Nketiah, who was not moving pleasantly towards completion of the gain Everton as a result of a current knock, so a third successive video game unemployed may await the 23-year-old as Leandro Trossard remains to make an impact.

Jorginho was an applied half-time withdrawal on Wednesday as a result of disease, so Thomas Partey could make his return to the first XI, yet his teammate has totally recuperated and also will certainly not yield his place conveniently. Kieran Tierney, Emile Smith Rowe and Fabio Vieira will certainly additionally promote addition given the quick turnaround.

On the other hand, Bournemouth were handed a three-way injury blow before their defeat to Man City, where Matias Vina, Junior Stanislas and Marcus Tavernier all missed out with fresh problems, and all of them will lose out here alongside Ilya Zabarnyi as well as David Brooks.

On a brighter note, Lloyd Kelly and Lewis Chef are recouping well - the latter must be back in the team - and also O'Neil is faced with a development predicament after changing to a five-man backline to little impact versus Man City.

The manner of the Cherries' performance was remarkable, though, so the checking out employer might stick with that defence-heavy arrangement in the hope of vanquishing Arsenal's rampant attack.

Collection feasible beginning lineup:
Ramsdale; White, Saliba, Gabriel, Tierney; Xhaka, Partey; Saka, Odegaard, Martinelli; Trossard

Bournemouth feasible starting schedule:
Neto; Smith, Mepham, Senesi, Stephens, Zemura; Ouattara, Billing, Lerma, Traore; Solanke

We state: Toolbox 3-0 Bournemouth
Bournemouth offered Man City a few scares last weekend break and deservedly breached the champs' defence, however comparable efforts to silence the Emirates group will certainly be consulted with heavy resistance by Arteta's revitalized crop.

Despite having midweek exhaustion antagonizing them, Arsenal ought to maintain their unassailable lead in first place with one more straightforward win, scratching a lot of goals en route
