Match Predictions AFC Bournemouth vs Arsenal
In their last match against Burnley, AFC Bournemouth did their best to not lose at home, but the winner in the 89th minute by the visitors spoiled their plans.
While, Arsenal were held to a goal-less draw by Everton at their home.
The year is coming to an end, and both the teams would be desperate to record a win as the campaign comes to the halfway mark.
Arsenal are going through a period of unrest as they have to get used to their new coach Freddie Ljungberg’s style of play.
Furthermore, they have only a single win to show for in their last 13 games and just three away wins this season across all competitions.
While the hosts have home advantage and have defeated teams like Manchester United and Everton and more at this venue in recent past.
But looking at their head-to-head games, Arsenal has clearly been the top dog. They have won 7 of the last 9 clashes with the hosts and have recorded 23 goals.
Predicted Score: AFC Bournemouth 1-2 Arsenal
