Arsene Wenger will hope his side can get back to winning ways

While Bournemouth are yet to win a Premier League match this season after suffering defeats in each game this season, against West Brom, Watford and Manchester City.

But in their last outing against City, it was an improved performance from Eddie Howe’s men and they were lucky to lose after Raheem Sterling’s last minute winner.
