4-2-3-1: Arsenal Lineup vs. Bournemouth – Coquelin, Sanchez and Ozil in Starting XI

Sanchez is Back Against Man City

Arsenal will travel to Vitality Stadium to face Bournemouth in a crunch Premier League clash on Sunday.

The Gunners have failed to win in their last four league games and have failed to find the net in last three. Their title challenge seems to be faltering and anything less than three points will see them losing further ground on it.

The Cherries have claimed seven points from their last three fixtures and will be a tough nut to crack for the Gunners.

Team News:

Arsenal have against lost Tomas Rosicky to an injury. He has been ruled out for two-three months.

Danny Welbeck has joined first-team training and played in the U-21 game this week. However, he is still short of match fitness.

Santi Cazorla and Jack Wilshere are out with long term injuries.

Predicted Lineup

Goalkeeper:

No marks for guessing this.

Defence:

Hector Bellerin will feature as a right-back and Nacho Monreal as a left-back.

Arsene Wenger might stick with Gabriel ahead of Per Mertesacker in this one too. Brazilian defender will partner Laurent Koscielny in the centre of defence.

Midfield:

Expect Francis Coquelin to make way back into the starting eleven. He will take the place of Mathieu Flamini.

The Gunners have struggled in the absence of the Frenchman and his return will add calmness to their midfield. Aaron Ramsey will play next to Coquelin in the centre of midfield.

Mesut Ozil will remain in charge of the creative duties and will try to work his magic in the number ten role.

Forward:
Alexis Sanchez is back and Arsene Wenger will be hoping for him to rekindle his best form as soon as possible. The Chilean will start on the left flank.

Wenger has the decision to make on the opposite side. Joel Campbell failed to impress in the draw against Southampton whereas Theo Walcott was dire in his substitution role.

We expect Wenger will stick with the Costa Rican international. Olivier Giroud will lead the attacking lines.

Predicted Line-up: Cech, Monreal, Gabriel, Koscielny, Monreal, Coquelin, Ramsey, Ozil, Campbell, Giroud, Sanchez
