Arsenal did the double over Bournemouth last season and they can maintain their dominance over the Cherries at the Vitality Stadium.
The Gunners overcame their hosts 3-1 in the reverse fixture earlier this season and another three points could be on the cards as they seek to maintain their title challenge.
Arsene Wenger’s men have lost their two previous away games, at Everton and Manchester City, but head into the clash in good form with two home wins over the festive period.
Bournemouth are in reasonable form themselves and sit comfortably in mid-table. At home they’ve managed some impressive results with a draw against Spurs and an incredible comeback victory over Liverpool on their record this season, but they will be without Jack Wilshere and that could be crucial.
Wilshere has been excellent this season for Eddie Howe’s men but he is ineligible to face his parent club. The midfielder has become a talismanic presence in the Cherries side and his absence will be keenly felt.
Arsenal are 4/5 to grab all three points but I think they can beat a -1 handicap. Wenger’s men have won all three of their Premier League meetings with Bournemouth by a two goal margin so my top be for this fixture is an away win with a -1 handicap at 41/20. Olivier Giroud is also worth a mention at 5/4 to score at anytime after his stunner in the 2-0 win over Crystal Palace last time out.
