Struggling Arsenal needed fresh start after Wenger - Emery

Struggling Arsenal needed fresh start after Wenger - Emery

And Arsenal have delivered fitness updates on numerous players ahead of the clash.

"Only Danny Welbeck's injury".

Arsenal ace Stephan Lichtsteiner is also being assessed before the trip to the Vitality Stadium.

Nacho Monreal is set to miss up to two weeks after seemingly aggravating a hamstring injury he sustained last month.

Despite a heroic exit from the Emirates with fans paying tribute to their departing manager it had been a hard last period of his managerial spell with the north London club.

The Switzerland worldwide, who joined Arsenal in the summer, is recovering from a right hamstring injury.

Arsenal are 16 games unbeaten and they looked pumped up in training to extend that run against Bournemouth on Sunday.

"We want [to finish in the top four] but it's not easy". What I want is to unite both essences and be more competitive.

"I like also for my team to score a lot".

The north London club, who have gone two years without Champions League football, are sitting fifth and even went on an 11-game winning run which ended in late October. Money has changed everything. He, in the press match conference, said, "We just approach the game in the same way we do any team, we watch them and analyze them and we make our game plans around what we have seen".

"There's still a long way to go".

"And with Mesut, a big player, we need to continue working to hold that high level of quality in each match".

Wilson's return of six goals and five assists from twelve league appearances earned him his first full England cap during the recent worldwide break and he has been leading the line with aplomb.

The Gunners have very different targets to those of Bournemouth when it comes to goals for the season and their forward line has little resale value as Ozil is now 30 years old, Aubameyang is 28 and Lacazette is 27, but they are hoping that those players can start filling up the trophy cabinet once more.
