Mesut Özil is expected to keep his place in Arsenal’s starting line-up following their surprise 4-0 defeat at the hands of Southampton on Boxing day.
The 27 year-old will be looking to bounce back as they look to overtake Leicester City at the top of the table.
Özil has provided 15 assists in 16 league games which is not only the best record in England but also the top five leagues in Europe including Spain, France, Germany and Italy.
Bournemouth are unbeaten in their last five games and can move up to 13th place with a victory over the Gunners today. Özil will match the club record for assists provided in a single season if he sets up another goal tonight.
