Match Preview : Bournemouth vs Arsenal

Bournemouth bounced back from back-to-back defeats with a resounding 3-0 win at Swansea at New Year’s Eve and will hope to take advantage of the extra day’s rest ahead of the welcome of Arsenal.

The Cherries, however, have lost their three Premier League meetings with the north London outfit, conceding seven in the process.

Following back-to-back losses, Arsenal have secured back-to-back wins following victories over West Brom and Crystal Palace. That being said, they have won just one of their last four away Premier League games, with the two defeats coming at Everton and Manchester City.

Bournemouth will be confident on home turf, but Arsenal could make it three successive league wins when they make the trip to the Vitality Stadium on Tuesday night. Place your bet on

West Brom bounce back to sink Hull

West Bromwich Albion hit back from a goal down to beat Hull City 3-1 on Monday as second-half goals by Chris Brunt, Gareth McAuley and James Morrison piled on the misery for Mike Phelan’s struggling side.

Robert Snodgrass gave Hull the lead at the Hawthorns in the 21st minute, sliding in to volley Ahmed El Mohamady’s cross into the net and the Tigers were good value for their lead at the break.

But West Brom started the second half strongly and equalised four minutes in after sustained pressure yielded a corner which Brunt dispatched into the net with a powerful header.

McCauley struck in the 62nd minute, the referee ruling that his header had crossed the line before being cleared as Hull failed to deal with another set piece, and Morrison scuffed a left-footed shot home 11 minutes later.

Hull remained mired in the bottom three on 13 points while West Brom are eighth on 29 ahead of their trip to Tottenham Hotspur.
