Three fringe players Arsenal must use vs. Bournemouth
Arsenal travel to Bournemouth hoping to secure a third successive league win as the Gunners aim to remain in contention for a first Premier League title since 2004.
Following the Gunners’ two victories over the festive period, it’s clear Arsene Wenger was granted his Christmas wish of six points. Nonetheless, if the French manager wants to ensure niggling injuries don’t affect his first-team squad, he must make some changes on the south coast.
Overcoming Bournemouth this season is easier said than done as the Cherries are enjoying their best ever top-flight season, finishing 2016 in the top half of the table.
But with Arsenal enduring their fourth league outing in the space of just two-and-a-bit weeks, Wenger needs to risk a lesser XI against Bournemouth to make sure injury problems don’t collapse yet another title bid from the north London outfit.
With that in mind, we take a look at three fringe players who should start at the Vitality Stadium.
