The Bournemouth vs Arsenal live stream will the PL newcomers welcome the high-flying Gunners to the south coast — and you can watch it from anywhere with a VPN.
Newly promoted Bournemouth will surely be pleased with their start to the season; a convincing victory against Aston Villa was followed by a 0-4 thrashing at the hands of Manchester City. The latter result looks bad on paper, but plenty of teams will struggle against the reigning champions this season. After two games, Bournemouth sit in 11th place, a spot that Scott Parker would no doubt love to still be in when the season ends next May.
After the disappointment of missing out on Champions League qualification to bitter rivals Spurs, Arsenal have come into this season with a point to prove. And a lavish summer transfer spend on top talent including Gabriel Jesus and Oleksandr Zinchenko from Manchester City, plus Fabio Vieira from FC Porto, has further boosted the quality of the squad.
Arsenal have started the season in fine form, winning both of their opening fixtures. The 4-2 victory over Leicester last weekend was particularly impressive, with Gabriel Jesus scoring a brace. However, the reports that Emile Smith-Rowe and Vieira may miss this match due to injury have blunted what has otherwise been an almost perfect start to the season.
Can Bournemouth cause an upset, or will Arsenal's perfect start continue? Find out by watching a Bournemouth vs Arsenal live stream.
