Tuesday night’s live game sees Arsene Wenger take his side down to the south coast to face tenth placed Bournemouth.
Bournemouth’s recent form has been patchy having lost three of their last five games. Their last home game ended in a 1-3 defeat against Southampton, and the Cherries are 7/2 underdogs to win on Tuesday.
Arsenal are enjoying a decent run of form, their win against Palace on New Year’s Eve made it three wins from five over the festive period. However, Wenger will be slightly concerned by his team’s performances away from the Emirates stadium.
A prolific 5-1 win against West Ham on December 3rd was the Gunners last victory on the road. They are 5/6 to do the business at Dean Court on Tuesday.
After drawing with Sunderland, an Arsenal win would see them close the gap on Liverpool in second to just one point and keep in touch with league leaders Chelsea.
The Gunners have scored in all of their last 12 away games and are the top away scorers in the Premier League with 20 goals from 9 away games. This form away from home should give them the edge here and should see them win a high scoring game.
If you fancy a juicer price and feel like taking on a correct score punt, a 2-1 at 7/1 Arsenal win could be the shout.
Bournemouth average 1.3 goals per game, while Arsenal have scored in every game since October. Eddie Howe’s men suffered a 3-1 defeat when the sides last meet Emirates in November, and we expect a slightly tighter affair this time out.
With all that in mind, the banker punt for the night has to be both teams to score which currently priced at 8/13.
