Our football match prediction:
Despite the fact that Chile superstar Alexis Sanchez returned to the starting line-up, Arsenal suffered a heavy 4-0 loss to Liverpool at Anfield in their last league game. The Gunners dropped to the danger zone in the Premier League standings and, no doubt, coach Arsene Wenger is under big pressure ahead of Saturday’s football match against Bournemouth. This has to go down as a must-win game for the out-of-form hosts and we predict that they are going to leave their hearts on the field. The Cherries were on the verge of sharing the spoils with star-studded Manchester City on Matchday 3, but the Citizens eventually scored the winner in the dying seconds of the match. Bournemouth suffered a loss in each of their first three league games of the season and seeing that Arsenal are a real force to be reckoned with at home, the visitors are likely to return to Bournemouth empty-handed.
Highlighted Player (Granit Xhaka):
Granit Xhaka is widely regarded as one of Europe’s most talented central midfielders at the moment and he is on the radar of quite a few high-profile sides. Just two seasons at FC Basel proved enough to attract interest from Borussia M’gladbach, who secured his signature in the summer of 2012. The Switzerland international had a slow start to his career in Germany, causing many pundits to start doubting his credentials, but he eventually turn things around to show he is more than capable of playing at the highest level. Acting as a deep-lying playmaker, Xhaka impressed fans and pundits alike with his performances in Bundesliga and European competitions, and he even managed to score a couple of important goals in the process. Despite his fragile age, the highly regarded footballer has been a key member of the Switzerland national team for quite some time now, scoring 6 goals in his first 40 caps to establish himself as a real leader of the Rossocrociati. The 2014 World Cup, where he scored one goal in four starts, should prove just the first of many major tournaments to come.
Highlighted Team (Bournemouth):
Bournemouth are a professional football club that was formed back in 1890. The Cherries secured promotion to the Premier League in the 2015/2016 season, with the team making it to the English top flight for the first time ever. Bournemouth play their home games at Dean Court and the capacity of the stadium is 11,469. The Cherries enjoyed a very successful season on their Premier League debut, with the team beating the likes of Chelsea and Manchester United in the national championship. Glenn Murray scored the winner for Bournemouth in the 1-0 win over the capital club at Stamford Bridge and that is probably the greatest victory in the club’s history. Bournemouth have been participating in the FA Cup since 1913, but they have yet to win the trophy in the prestigious competition. It has to be noted that the club’s original name Boscombe Athletic Football Club was changed to Bournemouth back in 1923 as the club owners wanted the Cherries to be more representative of the district.
