Arsenal Starting Lineup vs Bournemouth: 3 Strong Changes Made!

Arsene Wenger may elect to recall Per Mertesacker and Francis Coquelin to the starting XI for the trip to Bournemouth.

Gabriel got the nod in central defence alongside Laurent Koscielny in midweek, but the German may well be favoured this time around. Hector Bellerin and Nacho Monreal are likely to continue at right-back and left-back respectively.

Coquelin wasn’t deemed fit enough to start against Southampton, but with more preparation time ahead of Sunday’s match, he could be favoured ahead of Mathieu Flamini in the double-pivot next to Aaron Ramsey.

Theo Walcott or Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain may come into contention to replace Joel Campbell on the right of the three attacking midfield positions, with Mesut Ozil and Alexis Sanchez expected to remain in the other two spots.

Walcott may also be in the reckoning for the lone striker role, although Olivier Giroud will be expected to lead the line for the Gunners.

Jack Wilshere, Santi Cazorla, Tomas Rosicky and Danny Welbeck are all ruled out.
