Arsenal have mended their ways a little bit after their humiliating defeat at the hands of Nottingham Forest in the FA Cup but drawing their League Cup encounter with Chelsea. But the draw has certainly not won back the trust of fans.
Arsenal next Premier League fixture is away at the Vitality Stadium on Sunday to take on AFC Bournemouth and Wenger will be desperate to pick up all three points from this encounter. The Gunners are currently 6th on the league table – 5 points adrift from that elusive Champions League spot.
ARSENAL TEAM NEWS:
Wenger travels to the Vitality with a series of injuries the biggest being Mesut Ozil. The German international missed the Chelsea clash with an injury and remains a major doubt for the Bournemouth clash.
Laurent Koscielny, Sead Kolasinac and Nacho Monreal are all out with respective injuries.
Jack Wilshere too is a major injury doubt for Sunday’s clash after he hobbled out of Stamford Bridge during the League Cup clash. But a major boost for Wenger is the fact that Aaron Ramsey is back in training and will start in midfield alongside Granit Xhaka.
ARSENAL’S PREDICTED LINE-UP:
Defence: Holding, Mustafi, Chambers
Midfield: Niles, Ramsey, Xhaka, Bellerin
Attack: Welbeck, Lacazette, Iwobi
