Bournemouth and Arsenal have been operating at very different ends of the football pyramid over the years but Sunday lunchtime's Premier League fixture sees the team ranked sixth in the table host the side now occupying fifth place. Only Danny Welbeck's injury.
While Brooks has rightly been earning rave reviews for his performances, Bournemouth's "Fab Three" of Callum Wilson, Ryan Fraser and Josh King (fitness-permitting) have been producing the goods on a regular basis and their statistics compare favourably with Arsenal's own attacking talent. Wolves gave them a scare in their last outing on home turf and playing away at AFCB is likely to be a bigger test for Arsenal. It is a big injury and Nacho Monreal is not okay for Sunday. That is good news. "We are going to work in each training and each match to be closer to the top four". "We need more. We need to get better". The process with him is that in this global break, it is to finish training with us every day to start playing, little by little.
"We've had a great start, we want to conquer that top four and get ourselves back in there as soon as we can". Kolasinac has come in for most of the criticism, while Petr Cech has been replaced by Bernd Leo in goal. Hector Bellerin will keep his place at right-back while Sokratis Papastathopoulos could return to the starting lineup in a Premier League game for the first time in over a month, replacing Rob Holding.
