Arsene Wenger is once again under public scrutiny after Arsenal‘s humiliating 4-0 defeat at the hands of Liverpool. The overall campaign turned out a mess despite having Alexis Sanchez in the starting line-up.
It might be a little too early to say that Arsenal’s title chance could soon diminish. However, thinking about it, if the Gunners drop more points later, their Premier League bid would surely and simply go down the drain.
Another issue that remains unresolved is the fact the Jack Wilshere, Alex Iwobi, and Calum Chambers unavailability might jeopardize their chance against Bournemouth on September 9 match.
At the moment, the biggest challenge for Bournemouth lies in the idea that Nathan Ake is still on his way to recovery. Along with him are Callum Wilson and Junior Stanislas who are both out due to their respective injury.
The Cherries’ rally against Manchester City ended in 1-2 defeat. Although the club failed to claim victory, Eddie Howe’s men were successful in their aim to put up a strong fight. Howe’s squad featured so much encouragement.
Confidence could steer either of these teams to victory. And speaking of which, Arsenal may be the team to prevail after coming from a devastating loss. At the moment, there’s no doubt that the Gunners have an overflowing drive to win the upcoming battle.
Score: Draw 2-1
