Arsenal Vs Bournemouth: 3 Bournemouth players who can turn into nightmare for Unai Emery

Arsenal Vs Bournemouth: 3 Bournemouth players who can turn into a nightmare for Unai Emery, as Arsenal will host Bournemouth on Sunday.

Arsenal will host Bournemouth in the 8th game-week of the Premier League. Both teams are separated by a point in the table and have an equal number of wins in the table.

Yet, both ar 4 positions apart in the table due to goal difference. Arsenal had a good start to their Premier League season but in the recent game-weeks, they are struggling to secure three points.

On the other hand, Bournemouth is living above their standards and are playing good football, and could end up in the top-10 of the league table by the end of the season.

Meanwhile, Arsenal is probably aiming the top-4 finish in order to enter into the Champions League next season. Pierre-Emrick Aubameyang is in a splendid form, considering his performances in the last 7 games.

The Gabonese International has scored 7 goals in the 7 games in the Premier League. Many of the goals were very crucial for the Gunners, as they came at very vulnerable moments in past matches.

However, Arsenal has several weak points, which has been exposed in the last few matches, and Aubameyang cannot rescue every time. Thus, we are going to mention 3 Bournemouth players, who can turn out to be a nightmare for Arsenal in the match on Sunday.

1. Callum Wilson

Arsenal Vs Bournemouth

Callum Wilson has been brilliant for Bournemouth in all games so far, and he is even giving competition to all the top strikers in the league so far by amassing 5 goals and 1 assist in his 7 Premier League appearances.

Undoubtedly, he is a crucial player for Bournemouth and made a significant impact for the Cherries in all the matches. He has 46% participation in all goals scored by Bournemouth this season, which states his brilliance.

Adding further, his goals are spread over 4 different matches out of 7, highlighting his consistency across all games in the Premier League. Hence, Wilson is the biggest threat to Arsenal in this game.

With struggling defence of Arsenal, Wilson as a primary scorer at Bournemouth is certain to make impact, and if things go wrong for the Gunners once again in defence, Wilson can surely make a huge effect.

2. Joshua King

The other reliable attacking option for Bournemouth is Joshua King, who has been phenomenal for the Cherries and is the second current top-scorer for them this season.

Although, his primary position is a striker but has been deputed on the left-wing, yet in 7 league games he has bagged 2 goals and 2 assists for Bournemouth, making him a vital asset for the team.

Moreover, he has 30% goal participation for Bournemouth and can exploit his wing with his blistering pace. With Sokratis giving a string of poor performances, the Norweigan striker can be a lethal force upfront.

Not to forget, King and Callum Wilson combine well upfront and has the ability to make Arsenal outpace. Thus, King is the other player in our list who can make a difference against Arsenal.

3. Harry Wilson

Arsenal Vs Bournemouth

The star player on loan from Liverpool has gathered the admiration of fan instantly with his performances at the right-wing. The front three of Bournemouth is undoubtedly an underrated one in the Premier League and can cause damage on their given day.

Meanwhile, Wilson has been brilliant for his new side, as in 6 games he played in the league, he has scored 3 goals, with a 23% participation in Bournemouth’s total number of goals.

Moreover, Wilson is also good at set-pieces, his splendid free-kick against Manchester City showed his skill in set-pieces. With Arsenal being erroneous in front of the 18-yard box, Arsenal has to watch out for him.

Thus, these are three players Emery should look out ahead of the game against Bournemouth at the Emirates on Sunday. the Gunners have already struggled against inferior sides, and the Cherries can be tricky at times.
