Arsenal vs. Bournemouth: Predicted Lineup, Bench & Score

March 4, 2023

Unlike recent weeks where Arsenal played first, by the time the Gunners take the pitch they will know the result of Manchester City vs. Newcastle. Newcastle has slipped to fifth, lost the League Cup Final, and will be desperate to pull the upset at the Etihad. Regardless, Arsenal simply have to manage their own matches, one at a time, and not get frustrated when shots don’t go in or decisions go against them early on. The team did a great job against Everton of continuing to bring pressure and look like a side leading the Premier League.

ve said it before here in this space, but Arsenal and Bournemouth have a very short history compared to most of the teams in the Premier League. The two sides have only played each other 13 times, with 11 coming in the Premier League between 2015 and this season. Arsenal had an FA Cup in 2020 and a League Cup win in 1987 which was the first time the Gunners had ever played Bournemouth. Arsenal has only ever lost to Bournemouth once, in 2018, and beat the Cherries 3-0 at the start of the season thanks to a brace from Martin Odegaard and a goal from William Saliba.
