Another new era at Arsenal begins the day after Christmas as Mikel Arteta takes charge of his first game as manager, with Bournemouth the hosts.

Freddie Ljungberg struggled to play the acting role, leaving the Gunners in 11th place and closer to the relegation zone than the top four.

Bournemouth is herself in a desperate situation, with her shock victory at Chelsea the only points in the middle of seven defeats.

The match takes place the day after Christmas – Thursday, December 26 – with a kickoff at 3 p.m. GMT.

 

News and team composition

Arsenal: The lack of options in the back means that the defense is likely to contain Bukayo Saka in the left rear with Sokratis and David Luiz the central defenders. Calum Chambers is suspended. Hector Bellerin is available after an injury.

The two midfielders, Granit Xhaka and Lucas Torreira, should keep their places after starting at Everton, with Matteo Guendouzi on the bench.

Mesut Ozil and Nicolas Pepe hope to return, but Gabriel Martinelli tightens the hamstrings.

Bournemouth: Diego Rico is absent due to suspension, while manager Eddie Howe has confirmed that Nathan Ake remains on the sidelines due to hamstring problems.

Adam Smith, Steven Cook and Harry Wilson are all out.

 

How we think the parties could line up …

Arsenal: Leno; Bellerin, Sokratis, Luiz, Saka; Torreira, Xhaka; Pepe, Ozil, Martinelli; Aubameyang.

 

Bournemouth: Ramsdale; Stacey, Francis, Mepham, Simpson, Cook, Billing, Lerma, Gosling, Fraser, King
