Bournemouth vs Arsenal
England – Premier League
Date: Sunday, 25 November 2018
Kick-off at 13.30 UK/14.30 CET
Venue: Vitality Stadium, Bournemouth.
Bournemouth, the sixth-placed team in league standings host Arsenal, currently the fifth-placed side in the Premier League. Come Sunday, the Vitality Stadium will witness this mouth-watering clash between two of the best in-form teams in England.
Bournemouth is a surprise inclusion in the top tier of the league compared to their performances in previous seasons. They have ambitions to gun for the Europa League spots as of now and look really able to give other teams a run for their money in the race. Their opponent for this match, Arsenal, will be their likely target, to be dethroned, in order to consolidate the fifth position when the league ends.
They will be trying to shake off the shock away defeat at the hands of Newcastle last weekend. The final scoreline read 2-1, and Bournemouth will ruing their missed chances.
Arsenal has really revamped themselves under new coach Unai Emery and has been on an unbeaten run of 16 matches, after the first two defeats at the start of the season against Manchester City and Arsenal.
Last week their unbeaten run seemed to come to a definitive end when they were trailing against Wolves even at the 86th minute. But Henrik Mkhitaryan appeared the savior and raised the Gunners from a sure loss. The final scoreline read 1-1.
The visitors come off as the favorites in this tie. Ozil and Co will be eager to get back to their winning ways once more. After recording 11 wins in a row, Arsenal had to deal with some unlucky draws. The Gunners will surely want to shake off the complacency that has affected them. The team from London will surely come on guns blazing and play their hearts out on the pitch for this game.
