So the big news for today’s Arsenal team set to face Bournemouth at the Vitality Stadium is that Alexis Sanchez has sensationally been left out of the team, making it now nearly certain that the rumours of him leaving are likely to be true if Wenger can get his replacement in this month.
And even worse is the fact that Ozil’s knee has not recovered yet either, so we are very weakened right now. Monreal and Koscielny are both out injured so we have our “defence of the future” on show again, and we will also see how the twam will look when both our superstars leave…
So here is the team I predict without Ozil or Alexis
Holding Mustafi Chambers
Bellerin Xhaka Ramsey Maitland-Niles
And here is the official line-up…

Surprisingly Wilshere has kept Ramsey out of the midfield, with the Welshman on the bench, and Welbeck comes in nstad. The Gunners are without a win in our last four games (D3L1) so we desperately need to get back to winning ways, but is this team goo enough?
