This weekend sees the much needed return of club football, and the Premier League. On Sunday, Arsenal travel to the Bournemouth to face the Cherries as two teams in the top 8 will clash.
Bournemouth have defied expectations this season so far, winning 6 from 12 and finding themselves 8th in the table so far, an impressive position for a team who some pipped to be relegated. They have struggled of late, however, picking up losses against Manchester United and Newcastle in their last two Premier League
However, they will be hoping to get back on winning form after the international break. They will be inspired by the form of striker, Calum Wilson, who picked up a goal for England on the weekend.
Arsenal have shared struggled also recently, as they have drawn 3 games on the bounce in the League, two being games they would be expected to win, including a scraped 1-1 draw with Wolves at home, a game they were largely dominated in and, truth be told, were lucky to walk away from with a point.
They will also be hoping to be back in form this weekend, a 2 week break for many important players including Aubameyang and Xhaka will no doubt have them on their best form.
This game will be a tough fixture for both sides, and definitely a great one for the neutral. I predict Arsenal will ride through and come away with the 3 points, but not without a struggle and many a challenge from Bournemouth.
Match Prediction: 1-2
