Arsenal Confirmed Lineup vs Bournemouth: Lacazette, Kolasinac return, Sanchez benched

Danny Welbeck Sead Kolasinac Arsenal Bournemouth

The Gunners head into the game on the back of their demoralising 4-0 thrashing at the hands of Liverpool before the global break as the pressure intensified on Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger.

"I think Welbeck is getting stronger and stronger, and let's not forget he was out for a long time". "He needs to come back to full fitness which he was not at Liverpool".

The Gunners could lose three successive Premier League games for the first time since January 2012. He will be quickly back to his best.

Sanchez looked miserable during Arsenal's 4-0 thrashing at Liverpool prior to the global break and then suffered successive defeats with Chile in World Cup qualifying.

"Before every game I have a selection problem and I'm always going to have to leave top-class players out - especially offensively because we have many top strikers", Wenger told reporters. "Sanchez is here and focuses here". After that, we have to keep a confidentiality about negotiations. "Many things happen in the last second what I regret". The 32-year-old was a key cog in Wenger's first eleven before sustaining an achilles tendonitis injury last October.

Victory lifted Arsenal - who face champions Chelsea next - to ninth while Bournemouth are languishing in 19th.

"Players have no clarity", he said. Are they in or are they out? Are they half in?

After three games of this season the Cherries find themselves in the relegation zone as one of three teams yet to pick up a point, although it is not a completely alien situation for them. It's not the way to work.

With the game effectively won - despite memories of that insane 3-3 in the south coast at the start of the new year - the rest of the second half was played at a slower pace.

He also backed forward Alexis Sanchez to get back to his best after his proposed move to Manchester City failed to materialise on transfer deadline day.

"We had to sell somebody. We played well all over the pitch".

At Liverpool he hopes to get more opportunities to play as a midfielder, even though competition for places will be tough. The England global has scored three goals so far this season, one more than he managed in 16 appearances last season.

Arsenal coach Arsene Wenger on Thursday said the club was close to roping in highly rated French footballer Kylian Mbappe a year ago.

SANTI Cazorla will play again for Arsenal, but not before Christmas.

Kolasinac was voted Arsenal.com's Player of the Month this week in recognition of his fine start in England, so hopefully today's display will serve as another reminder to Wenger that he really should be starting him as often as possible, especially in the big games.

On the transfer issue involving Sanchez and Thomas Lemar, Wenger said: "I have no doubt about his mentality".

"I've been at the club for six years now, so staying here was a simple decision. I didn't see what I wanted to see".
