Premier League

How 4-3-3 Will Make Arsenal a Threat Against Bournemouth on Saturday

After collecting 6 points from their 2 premier league games, Arsenal's next task will be a fight to continue with their good run in the premier league as they will be traveling to Vitality Stadium to face Bournemouth on Saturday at 19:30 East African Time.

Mikel Arteta's side looks strong after having a good summer transfer window where the signings are really doing well with them. Today in this article, we are going to look at the predicted 4-3-3 formation that Arteta could use and make his side a threat against Bournemouth. Let's see;


The predicted starting goalkeeper in this match is Aaron Ramsdale who has a little competition in the goal post following the departure of his competitor Bernd Leno. His great performance and back to back saves could be a key advantage for him to start here.


Arteta has been using a center back partnership between Gabriel Magalhaes and William Saliba and it seems to be working as it has been strong in the their two games. He could therefore, possibly enter this game with the same pair at the central defence.

Meanwhile, new signing Oleksandre Zinchenko seems to be thriving well on the left back and he could also retain his position, with Takehiro Tomiyasu who missed the last two games coming in on the right back to set up the possible strongest defence for Arsenal.


In the midfield, Thomas Partey could operate as a single defensive midfielder with Granit Xhaka and Martin Odegaard pairing up in the central midfield. This can possibly change to a 4-2-3-1 with Xhaka and Partey playing as the defensive midfielders and Odegaard as an attacking midfielder.


In the last two games, Arsenal's Brazilian duo Gabriel Jesus and Gabriel Martinelli have scored 4 goals and provided 2 assists combined, a perfect start. The two could therefore make into the starting line up on the left wing and center forward respectively as Bukayo Saka starts on the right wing to set up an attacking trio.
