Arsenal vs Bournemouth: Score prediction, lineups, live stream, TV, h2h – Premier League preview
Arsenal will be looking to extend their impressive home record when they welcome Bournemouth to the Emirates Stadium tonight.


Unai Emery’s side beat Southampton 2-0 on Sunday with goals from Alexandre Lacazette and Henrikh Mkhitaryan to make it 13 games without defeat at home.






The Gunners climbed into the top four above Manchester United and are now three points clear of Chelsea in sixth after their triumph.


Their opponents Bournemouth have gone three games without winning after their famous 4-0 win over Chelsea and threw away two points after drawing 1-1 with Wolves.


The Cherries are also on a dismal run away from home, losing eight games in a row on the road – a run that stretches back to October.


Arsenal will look to consolidate their position in the top four as Bournemouth travel to the Emirates on Wednesday night.


Arsenal are a point clear of injury-hit Manchester United going into Wednesday’s fixtures, 


and three ahead of sixth-place Chelsea; United are at Crystal Palace, while Chelsea host London rivals Tottenham.






Bournemouth have not won away since October 27, losing all eight times and conceding at least two goals in each of those games.


Team News of Arsenal vs Bournemouth


Emery should be able to count on Stephan Lichtsteiner and Alex Iwobi for the game on Wednesday despite the pair limping off in the win over Southampton.


Veteran full-back Lichtsteiner came off in the second half with a lower back problem while Iwobi picked up a knock, but both should be fit for the clash.


Ainsley Maitland-Niles could also return after missing Sunday’s game due to illness. 


Hector Bellerin and Danny Welbeck remain sidelined with long-term injuries.


Bournemouth midfielder Jefferson Lerma will miss Wednesday’s trip to Arsenal. 


The Cherries’ £25mi record signing begins a two-match ban after picking up his 10th yellow card of the season during Saturday’s draw with Wolves.


Manager Eddie Howe remains without Steve Cook (groin), Junior Stanislas (hip), D


avid Brooks (ankle) and Callum Wilson (knee), as well as long-term absentees Simon Francis and Lewis Cook (both knee).
