Mustafi benched, Mkhitaryan starts in probable Arsenal 4-2-3-1 line-up vs Bournemouth

Arsenal take on Bournemouth a few hours from now and they have an opportunity to bounce back with a win after a disappointing outing against Wolves before the interlull.

The Gunners are in a decent run – Unai Emery has led Arsenal to playing their last 16 games undefeated in all competitions and the results of Man United and Chelsea on Saturday means we can extend and close the gap against the aforementioned clubs respectively.

The North London club are one of the high scoring sides in the Premier League but they have conceded goals with reckless abandon. However, Emery has charged his players to avoid conceding goals while he expects them to continue scoring.

Arsenal Injuries

Danny Welbeck is out with a broken ankle and he is not expected to return before the close of the season. Arsenal are believed to be shopping for a winger that can play in his stead for the second half of the season.

Nacho Monreal had a setback with an hamstring injury and he’s not expected to be back until a fortnight from today.

Dinos Mavropanos is still battling with a groin injury but we expect him to be back in December. Meanwhile, Laurent Koscielny is back in full training following his long absence due to an achilles issue.
