Just three games into the new Premier League campaign, Arsene Wenger is already under fierce pressure and all eyes will on The Emirates stadium as we prepare to take on Bournemouth this Saturday at 3pm.
Arsenal seem to be falling (further) out of favour with the media and fans alike and are already struggling to keep up the pace in the race for the Premier League title. With Wenger’s team losing 4-0 to Liverpool after falling to an unlikely defeat up at Stoke city before the International break, we must get a win at all costs at home against The Cherries.
It doesn’t look like Laurent Koscielny will be starting for the Gunners as he picked up an injury while International duty for his country according to 101GreatGoals, and Alexis Sanchez is also rumoured to have picked up an injury and remains doubtful to play a part in the game.
Arsene Wenger has adopted the 3-4-3 formation since the beginning of the new season so here is the predicted line up for Arsenal against AFC Bournemouth ahead of the must-win clash:
Wenger will undoubtedly go for Petr Cech as his first choice goalkeeper, with second choice David Ospina preferred for FA Cup and Europa League games.
With Koscielny apparently picking up an injury, Shkodran Mustafi could play alongside the highly rated Rob Holding and summer signing Sead Kolasinac on the left side.
Four players will be playing in the midfield, Mesut Ozil alongside Granit Xhaka and Aaron Ramsey will be dominating the central midfield. Following the departure of Oxlade-Chamberlain, Nacho Monreal will be taking his position down the left with Hector Bellerin taking the other wing.
Sanchez who remains doubtful to start the game is likely to be replaced Danny Welbeck again after the ace’s impressive performance while on International duty for England. Alexandre Lacazette will be favoured to lead the attack and will be hoping to add to his goal tally against the Cherries.
The game is a must win for Arsenal with just three points on the board from three games, and Chelsea away up next, come on you REDS!
