Bournemouth have been one of the poorest teams over the last couple of months and a return of seven points from the last six matches does not indicate a revival from the Cherries. Arsenal have also been quite inconsistent but the team has been able to remain in the top four race largely due to the home form. The Gunners have a 100% record in the last six league matches at the Emirates Stadium. Our preview expects this strong form to play a major role in helping the team get a victory.

Correct Score odds
The injury to Callum Wilson has been a blow for Bournemouth, but the likes of Josh King are capable players in front of goal. However, Arsenal have been very stingy when it comes to conceding goals at the Emirates Stadium with three clean sheets in the last five games. Bournemouth’s biggest trouble has been scoring in away games with the team failing to do so in four out of the last five. Our correct score prediction would go with a 3-0 win for Arsenal.

Over/Under 2.5 Goals odds
Arsenal have been able to get three goals in back-to-back home league matches against Bournemouth. The Gunners have strength going forward with players like Alexandre Lacazette in good form. Our total goals prediction would opt for over 2.5 goals.

First Goalscorer odds
The impact of Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang has reduced in recent weeks with the 29-year-old failing to score in the last four games. Meanwhile, Alexandre Lacazette is fast catching Aubameyang after moving on to 11 league goals for the campaign. The Frenchman has scored four goals in his last seven games for Arsenal. Our first goalscorer prediction would pick Alexandre Lacazette.
