Arsenal v AFC Bournemouth

Arsenal will be looking to record three Premier League wins in a row when they host an AFC Bournemouth side currently without a victory in their last three matches.

Team news 

Alex Iwobi (ankle) and Stephan Lichtsteiner (back) will face late fitness tests for Arsenal but Ainsley Maitland-Niles is likely to be available for selection after recovering from illness, along with captain Laurent Koscielny. 

Hector Bellerin (knee), Danny Welbeck (ankle) and Rob Holding (knee) all remain sidelined as they continue to recover from surgery.

AFC Bournemouth midfielder Jefferson Lerma will begin a two-match suspension after accumulating 10 bookings so far this season.

Steve Cook (groin), Junior Stanislas, Callum Wilson and David Brooks also miss out on the trip to north London.

Arsenal have won all four of their home meetings with AFC Bournemouth in all competitions by an aggregate score of 11-1.
