The Gunners shone against Leicester at the weekend, with two Gabriel Jesus goals, the first (and second) in an Arsenal shirt, and one each from Gabriel Martinelli and Granit Xhaka earning them a well deserved three points. The Foxes fought back in the second half, but the door was firmly shut in their faces, with Arsenal replying in less than two minutes after each of the away sides second half goals.
After a perfect start to the season, Mikel Arteta’s side will be looking to win their first three games of a Premier League campaign for the first time since 2004 against a Bournemouth team that Arsenal have beaten in seven of their 10 Premier League meetings.
The Cherries go into the game on the back of a 4-0 hammering by Man City, a fate that the Gunners themselves endured last season but will be buoyed after an impressive home win against Aston Villa on the opening day of the season.
Scott Parker’s side are unbeaten in their last 11 home league games, but face a tough task against an in-form Arsenal side that look like they are going from strength to strength under Mikel Arteta.

Bournemouth vs Arsenal match stats
Gabriel Jesus had a home Premier League debut to remember for Arsenal against Leicester on Saturday, scoring twice and providing two assists as the Gunners ran out 4-2 winners at the Emirates. The Brazilian became just the second player to be directly involved in 4+ goals in a Premier League game for Arsenal since the start of the 2016/17 season after Alexis Sanchez and set a new record for touches in the opposition box (15), well in the last seven seasons at least.
The former Man City man has been directly involved in 10 goals in his last seven Premier League games and has recorded a higher xG (2.06), been directly involved in more goals (4), had more touches in the opposition box (26) and completed more take-ons (9) than any other player so far in the Premier League this season and has looked right at home as the Gunners’ new number nine.
Bournemouth have had fewer shots (10) than any other side so far in 2022/23, while only Nottingham Forest (42) have faced more shots than the Cherries (34), with Man City wracking up 19 shots against them in their game on Saturday, with seven of them coming in the opening 10 minutes.
Arsenal, on the other hand, also had 19 shots in their impressive win over Leicester at the weekend and have had 85 shots in their last five games against sides not in the ‘Big Six’.
