Eddie Howe’s Bournemouth side are the visitors to the Emirates on Sunday, and they have to try and win without Arsenal’s on-loan midfielder Jack Wilshere. Jack is obviously well regarded by the Cherries players and coach, and Jack’s midfield partner Harry Arter thinks that he is exceptional.
“Jack’s an unbelievable player – probably one of England’s most talented players, and one of our most talented players in the squad without a shadow of a doubt,” Arter said.
“I can’t pinpoint one thing I’ve learned from him. But his all-round game can take not just myself, but everyone on to the next level.
“He’s getting fitter and that can only be good for England and also ourselves.”
Arter may think that Jack is the best thing since sliced bread, but the fact is that he moved to the South Coast because he did not think he would get many opportunities in the Gunners first team, but Arter believes the Cherries can still get something from the game.
“I think these kind of clubs (Arsenal) always have the pressure on them. The fans will be expecting them to beat us. With some hard work and a bit of luck, we can pick something up.
“If we can stay in the game and get a break, I’m sure it will get a bit nervy at their end and that’s when we feel we can hurt them.”
Arsenal may be unbeaten in 18 games, but maybe a little nerves really are kicking in after three draws on the trot, and with Bournemouth getting a surprising win away at Stoke last week they may be in a confident mood, but I seriously can’t see them leaving the Emirates with even one point.
