The upcoming fixture of AFC Bournemouth and Arsenal in Vitality Stadium is going to be a thrilling contest as both the teams have been struggling in their respective aspects of the game and in this fixture, both the teams would try to fix their issues once and for all. Arsenal only managed to win five away games of the sixteen away matches they have played so far and as they would be the visiting team, the pressure would always be more on Wegner’s men. However, the home team has also failed to register more than one win of their last twelve competitive matches they have played so far.
If we go by the last six performances of both the teams in English Premier League then Arsenal has managed to fix themselves the 6th point on the points table with 39 points and the home team is very close to the relegation zone with 21 points, only managed to get the 17th spot.

The home team AFC Bournemouth hasn’t been able to win more than one match of their last 12 games but on the contrary they have not been defeated in their last four games so they would try to do the same in this match as well but given, the herculean task they have at their hands things are most likely to change for them because they have not been able to defeat Arsenal in English Premier League.
However, if we go with the Arsene Wegner’s side’s performances in away games then of the 16 away matches they have played so far they have lost 11 away games and their struggle may also remain in this fixture as well.
But if we go by with the league standings of both these teams then we would bet it all on Arsenal for this game.
