3-4-2-1: Welbeck dropped, Predicted Arsenal lineup against Bournemouth


Arsenal play hosts to Bournemouth on Saturday in what is a must-win game following a dismal start to the season.

The Gunners have bagged just three points from their opening three matches, and Arsene Wenger will expect a reaction from the players after their 4-0 thumping at the hands of Liverpool prior to the international break.

Formation: 3-4-2-1

Judging by Wenger’s recent actions, he is unlikely to tweak the formation for the sake of one game. He could persist with the three-at-the-back which would enable him to play both Nacho Monreal and Sead Kolasinac in the team.

Arsenal Predicted Lineup:

Petr Cech was probably the only credible performer at Anfield as he produced a string of impressive saved. The 35-year-old is a certainty to start between the sticks.

The back three could remain unchanged from the Reds’ game with Rob Holding, Laurent Koscielny and Nacho Monreal taking their places.

With Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain gone, Hector Bellerin will return to his preferred right wing-back spot with summer signing Sead Kolasinac at left wing-back.

Aaron Ramsey is due to undergo a late fitness test having played the full 90 minutes in both games for Wales, but he is most likely to make the cut alongside Granit Xhaka in central midfield.

Arsene Wenger has admitted that Sanchez could take some time to get back to full fitness, but the Chilean is likely to start alongside Mesut Ozil – just behind the main striker.

Danny Welbeck has shown his pace to get behind defenders, but unfortunately, he just can’t find the net for Arsenal on the first attempt. Alexandre Lacazette to replace him..
