Both sides will be looking to register a when they face off in English Premier League.
Ahead of their match against Arsenal, Bournemouth manager heaped praise on his opponents. He said, “I think it will be a very good game, fifth vs sixth, Arsenal are on this very good unbeaten run, they’ve adapted very well to the new manager and played well. They have outstanding attacking players and a Bournemouth good look about their team at the moment, we know it’s going to be tough.”
Unai Emery replaced Arsene Wenger at the helm of Arsenal after the Frenchman decided to call time on his tenure as the coach of North Londoners at the end of last season. When asked if he would consider Arsenal in the same as when Wenger was at the helm, Eddie Howe said, “I don’t think you can make too many comparisons, it’s a new era for Arsenal,”
He also said that they approach this game in the same way they approach all other games. He, in the press match conference, said, “We just approach the game in the same way we do any team, we watch them and analyze them and we make our game plans around what we have seen. The key thing for us and what we have found is that if one to 11 we are Bournemouth will then we have a chance – if we have two or three off the pace then these games are very difficult to get anything out of.”
Arsenal will be looking to continue their unbeaten run and register a victory against Bournemouth, who are sixth in the point table. A win will ensure Arsenal a 7-point lead between the 5th place and 6th place. Meanwhile, Bournemouth will be looking to narrow the difference by getting the better of Arsenal tomorrow.
When two strong sides meet, the result becomes unpredictable. Both teams have fared well so far this season and will be looking to continue their fine form with a victory against a strong side. Will it be Arsenal who come out triumphant after the game or will it be Eddie Howe’s side who ends Arsenal’s unbeaten run under Unai Emery?
