Bournemouth vs. Arsenal: Premier League – Match Preview

Arsenal travel to face Bournemouth on Tuesday evening looking to build on back to back victories.

Bournemouth thrashed a woeful Swansea City side 3-0 on New Years Eve, with Benik Afobe opening the scoring.

Further strikes from Ryan Fraser and Joshua King completed an easy win for the visitors.

Arsenal were too strong for Crystal Palace on the opening day of 2017, winning 2-0 at the Emirates.

A stunning opener from Olivier Giroud was doubled by Alex Iwobi as the Gunners moved third in the table.

The meeting earlier in the season saw Arsenal win 3-1 at the Emirates, with Alexis Sanchez scoring twice.
