Arsenal will be taking on Bournemouth on the back of two very comfortable wins which came against BATE Borisov and Southampton at the Emirates stadium in the space of just three days.
The Gunners climbed above Manchester United to fourth spot after the Red Devils only managed to draw 0-0 against Liverpool in Sunday’s showdown at Old Trafford.
Unai Emery’s side have rarely found themselves in the top four of the Premier League this season and they will be viewing this as their best chance so far this year to tighten their grip on fourth place.
Ex-Juventus right-back Stephan Lichtsteiner and Alex Iwobi both limped off in the second half of the win against Southampton but the duo are expected to return to the squad on Wednesday. Young defender Ainsley Maitland-Niles should also return after recovering from illness.
Hector Bellerin, Danny Welbeck and Rob Holding are the Gunners’ long-term absentees heading into Wednesday’s home game.
