Despite still being unbeaten this season, there is clear evidence to suggest that Arsenal are yet to hit their peak level of performance this term. The Gunners currently sit fifth in the Premier League standings, and they have been held to draws in two of their previous four matches.
However, both of their dropped points have come in home fixtures. Arsenal have won each of their two opening away matches, and they could record victories in their opening three for the third time in Premier League history. The Gunners have a fine record in this fixture, as they have won nine of the last 12, and have scored at least once across all matches during that period.
Bournemouth are still searching for their first league win of the season, and a defeat this weekend could see them end the round in the bottom three spots. The Cherries have won just once in 12 clashes against the Gunners, with that win coming at the Vitality in January 2018.
Bournemouth’s poor run of form in the league dates back to last season, as they are now winless in their previous ten. No side in the top-flight is currently on a longer winless sequence, and no side has picked up fewer points than the Cherries since May. The Cherries will be looking to avoid going their opening seven games without a win for the first time since the 1994-95 season.
Bournemouth vs Arsenal Prediction
Arsenal dominate the head-to-head record in this fixture, and it could be a testing afternoon for the Cherries on Saturday. There is little evidence to suggest that Bournemouth will end their winless run, meaning that the preference is for the Gunners.
