Iraola is winless in each of his six Premier League matches in charge of Bournemouth (D3 L3) – the last manager to have a longer winless start with all fixtures coming within the same season was Aston Villa's Remi Garde, with nine matches, in 2015/16.
Arsenal have taken the lead in all six Premier League matches this season, although they have failed to go on and win two of those games, drawing with Fulham and Spurs at the Emirates.

What the managers had to say
Andoni Iraola: "We have to be ready, we have to prepare well for the game. I think we have to keep doing the things that we did the other day against Brighton, but we have to try and be more efficient.”
Mikel Arteta: "The objective is going to be the same - to be better than Bournemouth - and beat them. Let's see what happens."
