The Arsenal vs Bournemouth live stream is here, and it arrives at an interesting point for both teams. Arsenal have finally played their game in hand, demolishing Everton 4-0 at home to get five points clear of Manchester City at the top of the table. AFC Bournemouth by comparison, sit firmly in the relegation zone, just three points ahead of bottom-of-the-table Southampton following the Cherries 4-1 loss to Man City last weekend. This game will definitely be a case of David versus Goliath.

Arsenal vs Bournemouth preview
Rumors of Arsenal's demise appear to have been greatly exaggerated. While they still apparently can't beat Manchester City, they're not so bad against everyone else. Since their 3-1 loss to City on February 15, the Gunners have gone on a run, beating Aston Villa 4-2 and Leicester City 1-0 on the road, then returning home to get revenge on Everton in a 4-0 thrashing. Arsenal now have three players in the top 10 EPL goal scorers, and new signing Leandro Trossard sits at 13th. No other team has more than one goal scorer in the top 10.
Unfortunately for Bournemouth, they didn't even make the list. The Cherries have one of the worst offenses in the Premier League and no player has scored more than four goals this season. To make matters worse, the defense is atrocious, giving up a league-worst 48 goals.
It's tough to see how Bournemouth come out with a win in this one, let alone a draw. But it's not impossible — Arsenal have dropped points against inferior opposition a few times this season. They drew against Southampton and lost to Everton, though both matches were on the road. At home, they've been nearly unstoppable, and have not dropped any points at home to a team in the bottom half of the EPL table.
So will Arsenal continue its dominant season? Or will Bournemouth manage to score a nearly impossible win? You'll have to watch to find out, so don’t miss the Arsenal vs Bournemouth live stream.
