The last game of Saturday’s Premier League program will be played by Bournemouth and Arsenal at the Vitality Stadium, and the start of the match is scheduled for 18:30.
The Gunners opened the new season brilliantly and recorded both victories, so the question arises whether they will achieve a third consecutive triumph or whether the newcomers in the elite will prevent them from doing so.

Scott Parker’s side have taken three points after two rounds and we imagine everyone at the club is happy with that. At the start, they defeated Aston Villa 2-0, played above all expectations in that clash, and announced that they intend to remain in the elite next year.
In the previous round, they were defeated by Manchester City 0-4, but this is the expected result because the Citizens have been the best team in the league for some time. Bournemouth’s coach tried to use defensive tactics to avoid defeat, but he failed, so the Cherries suffered their first defeat in the new campaign.
Now they face an equally difficult challenge as in the last round because Arsenal have been playing very well. Bournemouth’s defenders will once again have a very difficult task to stop the Gunners’ offensive line, which proved to be very dangerous and dynamic in the first two rounds.
Arsenal fans can finally be satisfied with the game of their players and the results they have achieved. Along with Manchester City, the London club was the only one to register two triumphs at the start of the new season, and they are among the most efficient teams in the entire competition with six goals scored.
Special praise goes to Gabriel Jesus, who scored two goals and registered one assist in the 4-2 win against Leicester, and has already begun to justify the money invested in his transfer.
The entire offensive line of the team is playing great. Martinelli and Saka are a constant threat on the wings, while Odegaard acts as a true commander. The Norwegian playmaker is protected by Partey and Xhaka, who have performed their tasks perfectly at the beginning of the new competitive year.
These two teams last played against each other in the 19/20 season, three times. Arsenal won twice 1-0 and 2-1, while in one match there was no winner 1-1.
Bournemouth (3-4-2-1): Travers; Kelly, Mepham, Lerma; Zemura, Billing, Cook, Smith; Christie, Tavernier; Moore
Arsenal (4-2-3-1): Ramsdale; Zinchenko, Gabriel, Saliba, White; Partey, Xhaka; Martinelli, Odegaard, Saka; Jesus
We expect a new fluttering and efficient game of the guests. We believe that Bournemouth’s defense is not good enough to stop Arsenal’s attacks, so we expect two or three goals in the home team’s net.
Prediction: Arsenal Will Score 2-3 Goals
