Bet of the Day: Expect a goalfest as Arsenal visit Bournemouth
This fixture has a high-scoring history
Arsenal’s recent Premier League form has been a contrast of attacking excellence and defensive disasters. The Gunners have taken seven points from their last four games, scoring nine goals but shipping eight.
They head to the Vitality Stadium to face AFC Bournemouth on Sunday. And history – as well as the visitors’ form – points to a veritable goalfest.

After struggling for goals early in the campaign, the Cherries have found their feet of late. Eddie Howe’s men have bagged nine goals in four games across all competitions, but haven’t kept a clean sheet since November.

Second half could see floodgates open

As for Arsenal, all four strikes in their last league game – a 2-2 draw with Chelsea – came after the interval. Both Teams to Score in Second Half looks good value at 6/4. Meanwhile, Second Half: Over 2.5 Goals is available at 2/1.
Gunners ace value to find the net
There’s been plenty of speculation on the future of Alexis Sanchez in recent days. But for the time being, the Chilean is an Arsenal player – and their most likely goal-getter on Sunday.
The 29-year-old has scored three times in as many games against Bournemouth, and has registered three goals in his last quartet of league outings.
