Bournemouth sits in 11th place with three points after two games. Bournemouth lost for the first time in the league in 2022/2023 in their last match in the Premier League 4-0 at the Etihad Stadium against Manchester City.

The last meeting in the Premier League between the two clubs, in December 2019 at the Vitality Stadium, ended in a 1-1 draw. And Gosling scored for the Cherries in the 35th minute. Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang scored for the Gunners in the 63rd minute.

Arsenal has beaten Bournemouth of late, unbeaten in their last four Premier League games (W3 D1 L0).

Bournemouth are looking for their first league win in a match between the two clubs since January 2018. The Gunners have beaten the Cherries 9-3 during their unbeaten run.

Gabriel Martinelli and Gabriel Jesus have been Arsenal's most prolific players, scoring two goals each. They are tied for second among the league's top scorers in 2022/2023.

Jefferson Lerma and Kieffer Moore have proved attacking threats for Bournemouth this season. The pair are the team's joint top scorers with one goal.

Lerma has scored a critical first goal of the game once. Hosts Bournemouth won their only previous Premier League game at home this season.
