            The visit from Aston Villa saw Arsenal slip up in their pursuit for the title. The Gunners had 18 shots with four of them on target, but a three minute period in the last stages of the game both Leon Bailey and Ollie Watkins found the back of the net to give Villa the 2 - 0 win.

            The second leg of the Champions League Quarter Final saw Arsenal in Germany. Joshua Kimmich scored the only goal of the game just after the hour mark to give Bayern the 1 - 0 win on the night and also the 3 - 2 win on aggregate.

            Back in the Premier League, Arsenal bounced back against Wolves. Leandro Trossard opened the scoring for Arsenal on the stroke of halftime and Martin Odegaard added another in the fifth minute of extra time to give The Gunners a 2 - 0 win.

            The visit from London rivals Chelsea saw Arsenal register their record biggest win against The Blues. Braces from Ben White and Kai Havertz as well as a goal from Trossard gave The Gunners the 5 - 0 win as Chelsea registered just one shot on target.

            The last time out for Arsenal was a big North London derby against Tottenham. An own goal from Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg and goals from Saka and Havertz gave Arsenal the 3 - 0 lead at halftime. A goal from Cristian Romero and a penalty from Son Heung-min did get Tottenham close but Arsenal held on for a 3 - 2 win.

            In their last five games in all competitions, Bournemouth have two wins, one draw and two losses.

            Bournemouth had just one shot on target against Luton Town, one they converted through Marcus Tavernier early in the second half. However, Jordan Clark equalised for Luton with 15 minutes to go and Carlton Morris popped up with a goal in the last minute to give Luton the 2 - 1 win.

            Dominic Solanke opened the scoring for The Cherries just after the 15 minute mark but Bruno Fernandes equalised for Manchester United shortly after. Justin Kluivert regained the lead for Bournemouth to give them the 2 - 1 lead at halftime. However, in the second half, a penalty from Fernandes rescued a 2 - 2 draw for United.

            Solanke was on the scoresheet again for Bournemouth with a penalty in the first half but a goal from Morgan Rogers in the first half added time made it level at halftime. Moussa Diaby and Bailey then added to the scoresheet giving Villa the 3 - 1 win.

            Bournemouth bounced back with a win against Wolves. Antoine Semenyo scored the only goal of the game in the 37th minute to give Bournemouth the 1 - 0 win despite the red card to Kerkez late on.

            The most recent outing for Bournemouth was against Brighton. Marcos Senesi opened the scoring for The Cherries in the 13th minute to give Bournemouth the lead at halftime. Enes Unal and Kluivert added to the scoresheet in the second half to give Bournemouth the 3 - 0 win.

            Footy Accumulators Prediction

            Arsenal may have stumbled against Aston Villa but have looked unstoppable ever since, with Bournemouth unlikely to put a stop to it. However, The Cherries are likely to at least score. Arsenal 3 - 1 Bournemouth
