Arsenal v Bournemouth betting tips and predictions

Arsenal to win & under 3.5 goals - 8/5

Arsenal eased to a 4-0 victory at Bournemouth at the end of September but the Premier League leaders can expect a tougher game against the much-improved Cherries on Saturday.

Bournemouth were still finding their feet under manager Andoni Iraola when they were brushed aside by the Gunners at the Vitality Stadium, where Bukayo Saka, Martin Odegaard, Kai Havertz and Ben White were on the scoresheet.

However, Iraola is proving to be an excellent appointment for the Cherries, who have won six of their last 10 league matches to raise hopes of a top-half finish.

Bournemouth won 1-0 at Wolves before a 3-0 home victory over Brighton in their last two matches and were unfortunate only to draw 2-2 with Manchester United on the south coast last month.

Their defence faces a far tougher test at the Emirates Stadium, where Arsenal put five goals past Chelsea in their last home game.

However, Arsenal were not at their fluent best in Sunday's 3-2 derby win at Tottenham, where two of their goals came from corners either side of a breakaway strike from Saka.

Spurs benefited from a David Raya error and a penalty for their two goals so backing Arsenal to win and under 3.5 goals could be the way to go on Saturday.

The Gunners have the best defensive record in the division, conceding only 28 goals in 35 league matches this term, but Bournemouth look more awkward opponents than they were in the autumn.     

Leandro Trossard to be first goalscorer - 11/2

Arsenal's Leandro Trossard started the 2023/24 season with a deflected equaliser against Manchester City in the Community Shield and he is finishing the campaign in fine form.

The Belgium international should get the nod over Gabriel Martinelli on the left side of Arsenal's front three after scoring five times in his last 10 appearances.

His recent strikes include Champions League goals against Porto and Bayern Munich at the Emirates as well as the openers in the 2-0 away win at Wolves and the 5-0 drubbing of Chelsea.

Trossard has scored 14 Premier League and Champions League goals from just 21 starts and 19 substitute appearances this season and he is worth backing to be the first goalscorer against Bournemouth.  

Justin Kluivert to have over 1.5 shots - 1/1

Arsenal's Trossard is not the only in-form wide player set to be on display in north London and Bournemouth's Justin Kluivert will be eager to impress against the Premier League leaders.

The 24-year-old is already part of a select group of players who have appeared in the Premier League, Bundesliga, Serie A, La Liga and Ligue 1 and he has become increasingly influential for the Cherries this term.

Seven of Kluivert's nine goals in all competitions have come since Christmas, including three in his last six league appearances.

He scored with one of his five shots at goal in the 2-2 draw with Manchester United and also found the net in last weekend's 3-0 home win over Brighton.

One of Arsenal's strengths is restricting the number of chances their opponents can create but Kluivert, who has had two or more shots in 13 of his last 14 league starts, should be backed to cause the hosts problems.
