AFC Bournemouth v Arsenal Preview, Premiership, 3rd January 2017

AFC Bournemouth head into this game having had a good season so far and currently occupy 10th position in the league table on 24pts having secured 7 wins, 3 draws and 9 defeats from their 19 matches played.

The hosts were comfortable 3-0 winners away against struggling Swansea City last time out and that result will have boosted the confidence of the squad having suffered two previous defeats on the bounce.

Arsenal head into the game also having had a good season so far and currently occupy 3rd position in the league table on 40pts having secured 12 wins, 4 draws and 3 defeats from their 19 matches played.

The visitors were also comfortable winners of their game last time out when beating Crystal Palace 2-0 at the Emirates Stadium, a game that will no doubt be remembered for Oliver Giroud’s outrageous scorpion goal that fired his side into a 1-0 lead during the first half.

However, Arsenal were far from impressive in that match up against a side who’s confidence is at rock bottom at the moment and in real danger of relegation over the coming months and with AFC Bournemouth having the all important home advantage, Arsenal will need to bring their A Game with them on Tuesday night if they are to avoid a potential banana skin.

AFC Bournemouth Team News :

The hosts will be without the services of Jack Wilshere for this game as he is ineligible, but other than that Eddie Howe has a full squad available to choose his starting lineup from.

Arsenal Team News :

The visitors have almost a full squad available for this game but will be missing influential playmaker Mesut Ozil for this game. Oliver Giroud will once again spearhead the attack up front after impressing his manager with his scorpion kick opening goal on Sunday afternoon.

AFC Bournemouth v Arsenal Head to Head Statistics:

Tuesday night’s game from the Vitality Stadium will become just the 4th meeting between the two clubs over the years, of which AFC Bournemouth have won 0 times overall with 0 of those victories having came with home advantage.

Arsenal have managed to secure 3 victories overall with 1 of those having came away from home and obviously that record does seem to suggest that the away win here will no doubt be a popular choice for people on Tuesday night.

As we can see from our head to head to head statistics table shown below, the last five recent meetings shows Arsenal with a clear advantage, having won all 3 times, compared to AFC Bournemouth having won none.

Previous Average Goals Per Game Statistics

8 Goals have been scored in the previous 3 meetings between the two clubs and this provides us with an overall average goals per game statistic of 2.67.

2 of those Goals have came in the 1 previous matches played at the Vitality Stadium and this generates us an average goal scoring statistic of exactly 2.00

Based on both sets of data shown above it does seem to suggest that we should see at least two or three goals scored in this game on Tuesday night and betting markets like Total Goals 2 or 3 and Both Teams to Score looking good choices to get on for this one.

AFC Bournemouth v Arsenal Match Predictions, Banker Tips & First Goal Scorer Bets

On paper this should be a straight forward victory for Arsenal, however despite being favoured by both the h2h stats and recent form stats something just doesn’t sit quite right with me as my gut feeling is telling me that this game does have banana skin written all over it !

AFC Bournemouth were impressive in their 3-0 win away against Swansea City last time out and although many people probably won’t see that as anything special, it will certainly have boosted the confidence of the players for this one and with home advantage I can see the hosts making things extremely difficult for Arsenal on Tuesday night.

Onto some predictions then and my Banker Free Tip for this game is going to be for Both Teams to Score as it does seem to be the most sensible choice rather than taking a risk that the Arsenal players are not going to be suffering from fatigue three quarters into the game having only played on Sunday afternoon.

My First Goalscorer Free Tip for this game will be for AFC Bournemouth Striker Benik Afobe to Score the 1st Goal of the Game as with having scored the opening goal of the game against Swansea City last time out, he will be in confident mood about getting another in this one.
