Predicted Arsenal lineup (4-2-3-1) vs Bournemouth, Aubameyang and Mkhitaryan start
Arsenal will be aiming to secure a third-straight league win when they welcome Bournemouth to the Emirates Stadium on Wednesday night.
The north London side are currently occupying the fourth position with a one-point advantage over Manchester United but anything less than a win against Cherries may see them drop down the rankings.
Bernd Leno has been the undisputed choice for the Premier League duties since October and he should retain his position in goal for the Cherries game.
In defence, Unai Emery may fancy rotating his options with Nacho Monreal, Laurent Koscielny and Ainsley Maitland-Niles probable candidates to return to the lineup.
Monreal could take up the left-back duties from Sead Kolasinac with Maitland-Niles on the opposite end while Koscielny may partner Sokratis in central defence after the pair's fruitful partnership at the start of the year.
In midfield, Lucas Torreira could drop to the bench for the midweek clash with a view to the north London derby against Spurs. In this case, Matteo Guendouzi should partner Granit Xhaka in the centre of the park.
In the attack, Henrikh Mkhitaryan and Aaron Ramsey are likely to keep their positions on the right wing and number 10 role respectively but there could be a change on the left side of the attack.
Alex Iwobi seemed to struggle with a knock during the recent meeting against Southampton and this may allow Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang to return to the lineup on the left wing with Alexandre Lacazette leading the line.
