While Arsenal was stoking the weekend after moving into the knockout stages of the Europa League in the Premier League (2: 0 against Southampton), Bournemouth remained in the third game in a row without a win (1: 1 against Wolverhampton Wanderers). Now the Gunners are allowed to play a home match again, which will certainly be accommodating for them due to the last exhausting weeks.

Arsenal – Statistics & Current Form
After the 16th Round of the Gunners had in the race for the Champions League places still eight points clear of the then still coached by Jose Mourinhos Red Devils. But Manchester United has made great strides under new coach Ole Gunnar Solskjaer over the past few weeks. Currently, Arsenal have only one point ahead of fifth place. Coach Emery has to be careful not to run out of steam at the end of the season. That the Red Devils feather again, judging by the last performance, is unlikely. Chelsea could push again. Thus, it is up to the Gunners themselves. If the home strength remains constant, could finally wave at the end of this season finally again a Champions League place. The points collected at the Emirates Stadium put Arsenal in third place in the home table. In 14 games 35 counters could be collected. The balance of the Red and White thus stands at eleven wins, two draws and only one defeat. Only the Reds remained unbeaten in 2018/19 in front of home crowd. 30 own goals and eleven goals at home are each the third best value in the Premier League. For 13 league games, the Gunners are unbeaten in front of their own fans and could win the last seven home games in a row all.
Already in the past season, the same pattern showed. At home hui, outward pooh. In 2017/18, the Gunners played a superb season at the Emirates Stadium. At the end of the home rankings was second place to book. But as in this year, the Londoners faltered in the distance. With only four wins from 19 games Arsenal ended up in eleventh place on the away table. Arsenal vs. Bournemouth are a good choice for the home side, given their apparent home strength. Personally, Emery can not necessarily draw from the full. But with Stephan Lichtsteiner basically just a supplementary player is missing. All other and bigger names have been missing for a while. This is likely to be the case with Arsenal Vs. Bournemouth does not particularly affect the prediction.
Expected formation of Arsenal:
Leno – Maitland-Niles, Mustafi, Koscielny, Kolasinac – Guendouzi, Xhaka – Mkhitaryan, Ramsey, Aubameyang – Lacazette

Bournemouth – Statistics & Current Form
The guests have the highest injury status of the entire Premier League. With David Brooks missing the youngster in the midfield, which made not only the sensational 4: 0 against Chelsea attention. Callum Wilson is also injured. With ten goals, he is the main offensive player in the ranks of Table 10. Jefferson Lerma is also suspended. This does not make it any easier for Bournemouth to end the sensationally bad away-from-home misery. As neat as the achievements of Bournemouth are at home, the u. a. 4-0 win over Chelsea FC and a 2-0 home win over West Ham United crowned as bad as the Elf of Practice Leader Eddie Howe presents in a foreign land. Whole nine bankruptcies in series with only three self-scored hits are currently out of town on the paper. Of course, as a bet expert you should also take a look at the course of the game. But even here it does not look much better. Almost every defeat was earned in the respective height.
But where does this big discrepancy have its roots? The answer is found quickly. Bournemouth does not seem to have a clear outward plan. Sometimes they want to dominate the opponent with a lot of possession, sometimes they want to counter with quick counterattacks. The result is that the Cherries with 23 goals from the game in the statistics put the second worst value of the Premier League. In addition, they too often run the risk of getting into enemy switching situations. Again, the Howe Elf is the second worst value of the highest English league. Bournemouth must develop as soon as possible a clear game plan, which can then implement the players on the field also. Because of all these facts, the odds for a home win have already fallen. If you want to bet on Arsenal, you should strike fast. Because the headlines on the far-fetched services Bournemouth, as the game gets closer, more and more fill the Gazzetten.

Boruc – Clyne, Mepham, Aké, Smith – Ibe, Gosling, Surman, Fraser – King – Solanke

Key Facts – Arsenal vs Bournemouth tips
Arsenal is home strong at home; Third place in the home valuation.
Bournemouth is extremely weak in the distance; 16th place in the away ranking.
The injury worries and defeats definitely weigh heavier at Bournemouth.
Instead of a sensation, we rather believe that the hosts stay on the road to success with a clear victory. Due to the miserable away score of the hosts and the equally strong home record of the hosts, the betting odds have already fallen a bit, which leads us to choose a win in the Asian handicap -1.00. In the case of a victory with only one goal advantage we receive our wager thus back. Five units seem to be a plausible mission. At least one goal advantage can be expected when looking at the last results of the two teams at home or away in any case. Even a higher victory of the Gunners seems possible. At least temporarily, therefore, the fourth and last Champions League place would be secured.
Betting Prediction: Win Arsenal AH (-1.00)
