FA CUP fourth round weekend has not disappointed.
We’re now well into a packed schedule and it was Shrewsbury who pulled off the biggest shock as they took Liverpool to a replay.
There’s one game left to go in this round as Arsenal make the trip south to face Premier League strugglers Bournemouth…
Bournemouth vs Arsenal, Monday 8pm
ARE the real Bournemouth back?
Eddie Howe‘s side looked like their old selves on Tuesday night as they tore Brighton apart with some clinical, one-touch attacking football.
It’s the sort of thing that’s been lacking at the Vitality this season and might kick-start a move away from the relegation zone.
Howe put out a strong team against Luton and will likely do so again – although it’s hard to trust a forward line led by Dominic Solanke.
This is silverware and Arteta knows it’s important – expect him to make changes but still put out a strong side for this trip to the South Coast.
If you need a goalscorer bet, he’s the boy to be on.
David Luiz will be suspended for this one, which might be a blessing in disguise with the Gunners defence looking far more assured with him sat watching in the dressing room.
Both teams have scored in the last four H2H’s on this ground, including the 1-1 draw here on Boxing Day.
The Gunners have drawn their last five away games in all competitions – but here we’re backing them to see of a Cherries side whose number one priority is avoiding relegation.
5/6 on Arsenal is short, so go for them to win but concede at 12/5 instead – they’ve just one clean sheet in 13 games and that doesn’t exactly inspire confidence.
We’re expecting an open game, with the shackles off for both sides.
There’s value on the goals to be had and over 2.5 at 8/11 is the way to play.
