Arsenal vs Bournemouth preview : Team news & lineups, Jurrien Timber optimistic about returning to matchday squad while Mikel Arteta sticks with his successful lineup.


Arsenal will face Bournemouth on Saturday afternoon, with Jurrien Timber aiming to make a return to the matchday squad. Mikel Arteta may stick with the same lineup for this crucial match as they push for a top spot in the Premier League. Only three games left in the season, every match counts for Arsenal.


Arsenal will be facing Bournemouth on Saturday at lunchtime. Jurrien Timber is hopeful of making a comeback to the matchday squad. Mikel Arteta might choose to keep the same lineup as before.


There are only three games left to play. After a busy midweek schedule, Arsenal has had enough time to rest and recover for their upcoming clash with Bournemouth on Saturday.


Despite their recent victory in the North London Derby, Arsenal is still trailing behind Manchester City, who also won their match against Nottingham Forest. Arsenal’s only option is to keep winning games and maintain the pressure on their rivals.


Arteta is fortunate to have a nearly fully fit squad for the upcoming matches, and if Jurrien Timber makes his comeback, the team will have a full roster available.


Here is a potential lineup for Arsenal against Bournemouth this weekend:


Goalkeeper & Defenders

David Raya (GK) – Raya is currently leading the Golden Glove race, with only Jordan Pickford as a contender. However, he did concede a goal last weekend to Cristian Romero.


Ben White (RB) – Ben White is a threat to goalkeepers with his attacking prowess.


William Saliba (CB) – Saliba has been a consistent presence in Arsenal’s defense this season and could earn a spot in the PFA Team of the Year with a strong finish.


Gabriel (CB) – Gabriel performed well against Son Heung-min and will need to maintain that level of play against Bournemouth’s Dominic Solanke.


Takehiro Tomiyasu (LB) – Tomiyasu is likely to retain his spot even if Timber returns to the squad.



Thomas Partey (CM) – Partey’s return has been crucial for Arsenal, especially in possession. He enhances the team’s build-up play.


Declan Rice (CM) – Hopefully, Rice didn’t divulge too many tactics when he extensively discussed his game in an interview with The Athletic!


Martin Odegaard (CM) – Odegaard appeared rather subdued in the derby, but it seems likely that he will shine in this game as the captain.



Bukayo Saka (RW) – Saka showcased his exceptional skills in the previous match, and it would be greatly beneficial if the young starboy continues to perform at his best towards the end of the season.


Kai Havertz (ST) – Havertz was outstanding in the derby, surpassing Gabriel Jesus as Arsenal’s primary striker. In fact, Arsenal is now open to considering offers for Jesus this summer.


Leandro Trossard (LW) – If Arteta decides to make a change, he might substitute Gabriel Martinelli for Trossard, who struggled with ball possession last weekend. However, I believe the manager will stick with the Belgian player due to his impressive performances during the recent matches.
