Chamberlain To Start, No Mertesacker, Arsenal Likely Line Up For Bournemouth

 Arsenal were shocked over the weekend by Southampton in what turned out to be their worst defeat in the Premier League this season. They were thumped 4-0 by the Saints.

Wenger has revealed that he expects his boys to respond. The major reason Arsenal were poor was obviously as a fatigue. Wenger has stuck with the same team for over four games and their legs have become apparently heavy.

We expect a major tweak in the line-up that will host Bournemouth at the Emirates. Arsenal have been tipped as favourite for the title and they need to respond after the defeat.

This is how we think Arsenal will line-up against Bournemouth

Goalkeeper

Arsenal Goalkeeper is a game away from breaking the clean sheet record of David James. Some of the goals he concedes are not his fault be we hope the defence will aid him realise another clean sheet.

Defence

Arsenal defence was horrendous in the last game. We think Bellerin will still be retained on the right back position while we think Monreal will be rested in favour of Gibbs. In the heart of defence, Mertesacker is likely to be rested while Gabriel should be given the nod in today’s game along Koscielny.

Midfield

Wenger is left with little option in midfield. He will stick with Flamini as the anchor man while Ramsey will play along him. No doubt, Ramsey works hard but he should be cautioned by Wenger not to drift too far from his position. Ozil wasn’t properly serviced in the last game and we hope he wears his magical assist boot today.

Attack

We suspect that Chamberlain will be started on the left flank. Walcott is still fresh and should start on the right flank while the lead attack will still be Giroud.
