Arsenal has not had a great start to their season with a poor transfer window that has also happened to the club. The Gunners are being criticized by every pundit in the world and it is time for them to prove them wrong. This week, they play Bournemouth in what should be a game that Arsenal will expect to win, especially since they are at home.
The Gunners will hope that the likes of Ozil and Sanchez start wanting to play for Arsenal. This side has some very talented players but at the moment it looks like they do not want to play. This will not please the manager at all and I think it will impact their performances heavily.
Bournemouth, on the other hand, are a team that gives 100% every time they step on the football pitch. This team had built their success on team spirit and I think they will show that as they head to North London for this game. While playing away at Arsenal is not an easy task, I think this team will not disappoint considering how bad Arsenal are at the moment.
I am going to make a big prediction and say that this game will be a draw. While it seems unlikely that Arsenal will lose at home to Bournemouth, they are not playing well enough to win in my opinion. We are getting an extremely good price on this bet and as a result, I think it is the way to go. As far as goals are concerned, I think we should go for both teams to score since I think the Gunners will concede at home judging by their recent defensive performances. This bet is again getting a great price.
