Arsenal take on Bournemouth tonight at home this evening looking for yet another three points at Fortress Emirates but as usual it will be far from easy.
Despite our problematic defensive injuries, Unai Emery looks to have switched to a back three again, with Laurent Koscielny recalled alongside Sokratis and Nacho Monreal. Saed Kolasinac and the returning Carl Jenkinson are going to be running the flanks.
Matteo Guendouzi comes in to the midfield in place of Granit Xhaka. while surprisingly Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang replaces Alexandre Lacazette up front. Mesut Ozil also comes back in to the side as Emery continues his rotation policies.
These are the players that Emery has picked this evening with Tottenham coming up at the weekend….
Leno, Sokratis, Koscielny, Monreal; Jenkinson, Torreira, Guendouzi, Kolasinac; Mkhitaryan, Ozil; Aubameyang
Subs: Cech, Elneny, Ramsey, Lacazette, Iwobi, Mustafi, Suarez.
The boss is definitely trying to keep all our players as fresh as possible for the run in as we fight to stay in the Top Four, and with the home fans as the extra man we should have far too much for the Cherries, don’t you think?
