BournemouthFor "Bournemouth" this season is not easy. The failed start - five defeats in the first six rounds, sent the team immediately to the number of fighters for survival in the Premier League. Few managed to stabilize the situation in late October, when the "cherries" scored several successive important victories. But then again everything went downhill. "Bournemouth" could not win the championship since the end of November for eight consecutive tours. And only on the eve of the New Year he managed to interrupt this protracted series with a home victory over Everton - 2: 1, scoring the final goal in the last minutes of the match.
It was the victory over Everton that allowed Bournemouth to leave the relegation zone and rise to the 16th place. Although the distance to the red line is only one point.
In the last round, "Bournemouth" played away against "Brighton" and earned one point, completing the match in a draw 2: 2.
In the infirmary at the "Bournemouth" are Jermain Defoe and Tyrone Mingz. It's not clear if Juniors Stanislas and Joshua King can appear on the field.
ArsenalFor the "Arsenal" the last segment of the season has developed quite uneasy. In the last five official matches, the Gunners managed to score just one victory over Crystal Palace with a score of 3: 2. With Chelsea, Arsen Wenger's wards twice tied - in the Championship 2-2 match and League Cup semi-final 0-0, also the Londoners ended their fights in the Premier League with West Bromwich 0-0 and Liverpool 3-3. But the meeting in the FA Cup, "Arsenal" lost "Nottingham Forest" 2: 4 and folded the powers of the owner of the trophy.
In general, Arsenal have won only twice in the last eight rounds in the championship. In addition to "Crystal Palace" beat the "Gunners" still at home, "Newcastle" 1-0, completing five games in a draw for this period.
This is not quite a successful performance immediately reflected in the tournament position of the team. "Arsenal" while on the sixth position, but the distance from the fourth line is already five points.
Precisely do not play in the match due to injuries Nacho Montreal, Laurent Koselny, Olivier Giroux, Santi Cazorla. Francis Coquelin went to play for Valencia. Sead Kolasinac, Mesut Ozil and Jack Wilshere are still questionable.
