Michael Owen believes Bournemouth will secure a positive result against Arsenal in a high-scoring Premier League game at the Vitality Stadium on Sunday afternoon.

The Gunners are winless in their last three games in all competitions to leave Wenger’s side in sixth place in the Premier League table and out of the FA Cup.

Arsenal rescued a 2-2 draw with defending Premier League champions Chelsea thanks to Hector Bellerin’s last-gasp equaliser at the Emirates Stadium.

The north London side suffered a shock 4-2 loss to Championship side Nottingham Forest in the FA Cup third round at City Ground last weekend.

The Gunners renewed their rivalry with Chelsea again on Wednesday night as the two London clubs settled for a goalless stalemate in the first leg of their League Cup semi-final.

Arsenal have a poor record on the road this season following four draws and four stalemates in their 11 away fixtures in the Premier League.

Bournemouth, on the other hand, have only managed to win three of their 11 home games at the Vitality Stadium in the current campaign.

Former Liverpool FC striker Owen is backing Bournemouth to secure a positive result against Arsenal in their Premier League clash at Sunday afternoon.

“Bournemouth have never beaten Arsenal in six previous games although they were three-nil up in this corresponding fixture last season before having to settle for a point,” Owen told BetVictor.

“The Cherries have conceded in their last nine league games and it is hard to see them keep a clean sheet against the Gunners. That said I cannot see the Gunners holding out for 90 minutes and there ought to be a number of goals at the Vitality Stadium.”
