After falling to fourth place in the Premier League last weekend, Arsenal have been put under even more pressure after seeing Leicester City stretch their lead at the top with an away win over Man City, while Tottenham also won to move into second spot.
So this away clash with AFC Bournemouth really is a must win game for the Gunners. And after enduring a goal drought in recent Premier League games the onus is on the Arsenal forwards to start finishing some of the many chances that our creative players like Mesut Ozil have been providing.
The Arsenal stars to bear the brunt of a lack of sharpness in front of goal this week are Joel Campbell and Theo Walcott, with both forwards starting from the bench. Arsene Wenger has gone for the more direct and dynamic Oxlade-Chamberlain on the other side to Alexis Sanchez.
The boss has also chosen Flamini over the fit again Coquelin alongside Ramsey in the middle and decided that the extra pace of Gabriel is the better option at the heart of our defence, perhaps worrying about the former Gunner Benik Afobe against the big German Per Mertesacker.
Bellerin, Gabriel, Koscielny, Monreal
Oxlade-Chamberlain, Ozil, Sanchez
Subs: Gibbs, Mertesacker, Ospina, Walcott, Campbell, Coquelin, Iwobi.
Arsenal have plenty of attacking options on the bench as well, so surely we will not fail to score for a fourth EPL game in a row will we? Will today see us get the title challenge back on track? COYG!
