The Cherries have made an impressive start ot the Premier League season and goals look like the way to go at the Vitality Stadium on Sunday

One place and four points separate Bournemouth and Arsenal in the Premier League table after 12 games of the season.

Eddie Howe's side lost back-to-back games before the international break while the Gunners have struggled to find their killer instinct of late, drawing four of their last five games in all competitions.

Latest Odds

Bournemouth have lost four of their last six meetings with Arsenal, although they did come out on top in January, and 888Sport are 13/5 (3.60) about another home win here.

It's 14/5 (3.80) on another draw for the Gunners who are 49/50 (1.98) favourites to come out on top at the Vitality Stadium.

Team News

The hosts with be without Josh King and Adam Smith. Konstantinos Mavropanos joins long-term absentee Laurent Koscielny on the side-lines for the visitors.

The participation of both Alexandre Lacazette and Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang is also in doubt. Should they miss out, it would leave the favourites looking short on attacking options considering Danny Welbeck is already ruled out. However, both have participated in some gym sessions this week.

Preview

This clash would normally be a banker for goal backers. Arsenal have never failed to score in seven previous meetings with Bournemouth, scoring 17 times in total. Goals at both ends here is just 21/50 (1.41) and unlikely to appeal to many as a single wager.

The Gunners have also scored at least twice in each of their last five Premier League games on the road. They're 16/25 (1.64) to do so again on the south coast.

While the attacks have been firing, the defensive issues that have contributed to plenty of high-scoring games between these sides shouldn't be overlooked.

Tips and Predictions

Despite the doubts over Arsenal's attacking options, there's plenty to like about goals between these sides.

The Gunners' five away games have seen 23 goals scored, an average of 4.6 per game. Given Bournemouth have found plenty of joy in the final third themselves, a quote of 5/4 (2.25) about four or more being scored here looks a solid option.

This selection has also paid out in four Bournemouth games this season and at odds against it looks the best bet once again at the Vitality Stadium.

Over 3.5 goals at 6/5 (2.20) for a 1.5pt stake with 888Sport
