Bournemouth vs Arsenal odds


*Odds correct as of 15:00 on September 29

The Cherries’ tough start to the season at home continues, as after being held to draws by West Ham and Chelsea and suffering a 2-0 defeat to Tottenham, they now welcome last season’s runners-up in Arsenal to the Vitality. Andoni Iraola is winless in all six of his Premier League games in charge of Bournemouth (D3 L3), while only Everton (0) have scored fewer home Premier League goals this season than Bournemouth (1), with the Cherries underperforming their expected goal total on home soil by 2.1 (one goal scored vs 3.1 xG).

Arsenal, meanwhile, are looking to make it three consecutive wins on the road after leaving Selhurst Park and Goodison Park with all three points after back-to-back 1-0 wins away from home. The Gunners are unbeaten in the Premier League this season, having taken 14 points out of a possible 18 in their opening five matches, as they look once again to fight Manchester City for the Premier League title.

Mikel Arteta’s men have an impressive recent record against Bournemouth, winning 11 of their 14 matches against them in all competitions (79%), only boasting a better win % against sides they have faced 10+ times against Reading (100%) and Glossop North End (86%). The Cherries only Premier League victory against Arsenal came back in 2018, suffering defeat in three of the last four head-to-head meetings in the league.

Bournemouth fans could finally get a glimpse of summer signings Tyler Adams after overcoming the injury he joined the club with, but Alex Scott and Ryan Fredericks have been joined on the sidelines by Lloyd Kelly.

In  Out Doubtful
 Jurrien Timber, Mohamed Elneny, Thomas Partey Gabriel Martinelli, Declan Rice, Bukayo Saka

Versatile defender Jurrien Timber has been ruled out for most of the season and joins Mohamed Elneny on the Gunners’ long-term injury list. Thomas Partey picked up an injury just before the international break and has still not recovered. Declan Rice and Bukayo Saka both picked up knocks in the North London derby, so will have to be assessed, while Gabriel Martinelli could return.
