Arsenal welcomes Bournemouth to the Emirates Stadium on October 6, 2019 as round 8 of the English Premier League continues.

“Soccer" Arsenal

Arsenal salvaged a 1-1 draw against a Manchester United side that is off to its worst start since 2015. Manchester United only had 8 points to show in its first six games but led 1-0 at the break after a Scott McTominay thunderbolt in the first half. However, Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang struck in the second half of a rain-soaked match at Old Trafford.

Aubameyang has now scored 14 goals in his last 14 English Premier League matches. He is the first player from Arsenal to score at least seven goals in the first seven matches of the season since Dennis Bergkamp during the 1997-98 season. The draw kept Arsenal in the Top 4 with 12 points in seven matches played.

Arsenal is tied for 6th in the EPL in Goal Difference at +1 goal. They rank 7th in the league with a total of 12 goals scored and have conceded 11 goals this term, good for 11th in the Premier League. The Gunners have a total of eight assists on the season, good for 5th overall.

Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang continues to sizzle with a total of seven goals scored in seven matches. Alexandre Lacazette has two goals while Nicolas Pepe has one goal for his squad. Dani Ceballos and Ainsley Maitland-Niles have two assists each for Arsenal. Goalkeeper Bernd Leno has conceded 11 goals with 32 saves on the season.

“Soccer" Bournemouth

AFC Bournemouth looked ready to end West Ham United’s unbeaten run this season but they could not hang on to the lead. Instead, West Ham United remained without a loss as the two teams figured in a 2-2 tie in their round seven encounter at the Vitality Stadium last Saturday.

After falling behind 0-1 early, Bournemouth’s Josh King scored the equalizer with his team dominating possession time. Seconds into the second half, Callum Wilson drove a low shot past West Ham’s substitute goalkeeper Roberto Jimenez for Wilson’s fifth goal in the league this season.

Bournemouth ranks 6th in the EPL with a  +1 Goal Difference. The club has scored a total of 13 goals this season which puts them in a tie them for 5th overall. The Cherries have conceded 12 total goals, tied for 15th overall,  in seven games played. Bournemouth also ranks 5th in the EPL with eight assists to boast.

Callum Wilson leads Bournemouth with five goals scored on the season. Midfielder Harry Wilson has also scored three goals for Bournemouth while forward Joshua King has two goals plus two assists this year. Diego Rico also has two assists while Ryan Fraser has one assist for Bournemouth. Meanwhile, goalkeeper Aaron Ramsdale has 27 saves but has allowed twelve goals in seven appearances.

“Soccer" Who Wins?

Arsenal is currently ranked 4th in the EPL with a record of 3-3-1 SU after seven rounds played. The Gunners have not lost in their last six matches played across all competitions, giving up three goals in their last four matches played. In the EPL, Arsenal has one win and three ties in their last four matches played. The Gunners are the soccer betting favorites in this matchup.

Bournemouth is 8th in the Premier League ladder with their record of 3-2-2 SU on the season. Bournemouth has two wins and a draw in their last three Premier League matches. In their most recent outing in the EPL, Bournemouth figured in a 2-2 draw with West Ham United.

Head to head, Arsenal has lost just once in their last 8 meetings, going 6-1-1 SU over that period. The Gunners have won their last two meetings by an aggregate score of 7-2. In their most recent encounter last February 27, 2019, Arsenal emerged with a  5-1 win at the Emirates Stadium.

Arsenal is tough to beat their stadium and while Bournemouth is in the Top 10 this season, they have conceded the 5th most goals in the league. That could be a problem against Arsenal who have the red hot Patrick-Emerick Augbameyang leading their attack. I like Arsenal’s offensive attack to be the key here. Prediction: Arsenal
