Reasons for betting on Arsenal vs Bournemouth tip
Arsenal is hosting Bournemouth. The fans are furious again because of the recent performances of the Gunners, and Arsene Wenger is under heavy pressure. In the meantime, the Cherries recorded all 3 defeats in the first three rounds, and they have to change something, to get away from the bottom of the table.
Both clubs are under tremendous stress at the moment, and a good performance is a must, in order to boost the morale of the fans and the players.
Only one victory in three games is a disaster for the club from London. And above all, the fact that they have allowed 8 goals and suffered a humiliating defeat against Liverpool made Arsene Wenger very unpopular in the northern part of the city. Arsenal allowed at least one goal in the previous 9 consecutive games and that hasn’t happened for a long time. 5 of the last 7 games saw more than 3 goals. And in 6 games during that span, Arsenal had to chase the lead after the opening goal. The worst part of the team is definitely the defense, and we may expect for Arsenal to concede a high number of goals during this season. Santi Cazorla is still unavailable, and Laurent Koscielny is coming back to strengthen up the fragile back line.
Coach Eddie Howe is in a terrible situation regarding his managerial position. He could be out of the picture even after the game with Arsenal. The Cherries scored only one goal in the first 3 events and suffered all 3 defeats.
The problems with efficiency are evident, and he will have to come up with something new to surprise Arsenal. Meanwhile, the defense is also weak at the moment. Bournemouth allowed at least one goal in the preceding 7 games and during that time they were the team who conceded the opening goal of the match. It is very difficult to be in the position to chase the lead constantly. The only bright spot in this season is the English Football League Cup. Bournemouth managed to defeat Birmingham City away from home, 1-2, and to advance to the next round. Regarding the injuries, Nathan Ake and Simon Francis will be a game time decisions, and the same thing applies for Junior Stanislas.
