Arsenal Boss Arsene Wenger Reveals Reasons Behind Alexandre Lacazette's Uninspiring Form

Alexis Sanchez appears certain to leave Arsenal

Despite all the speculation though, the Arsenal manager will be hoping the team refocuses in the Premier League and closes in on a top four spot.

The 26-year-old, who joined the Gunners in July from Ligue 1 outfit Olympique Lyonnais for around £47m, is now enduring his longest run without a league goal since 2013, having failed to find the back of the net since his side's 3-1 home defeat to Manchester United at the beginning of December last year. Wenger, who completes a three-match touchline ban at Bournemouth, feels the trip to the south coast is crucial as he returns to the league following a disappointing FA Cup exit to Nottingham Forest last Sunday and a goalless draw at Chelsea in the League Cup semi-final first leg on Wednesday. Arsenal are sixth in the Premier League with 40 goals.

"It's a hard period, the first year, because the family comes over and it's a bit less football-orientated", the 68-year-old said, as quoted by the club's official website.

Atara Biotherapeutics, Inc. (NASDAQ:ATRA) Enters Overbought Range

Alexis after scoring a late goal against West Brom in the Premier League. In midfield, the duo of Harry Arter and Andrew Surman will look to stifle the Arsenal attack and win back balls swiftly.

Nacho Monreal (ankle), Laurent Koscielny (Achilles) and Olivier Giroud (hamstring) are still sidelined but Sead Kolasanic could return. With the future of talisman Alexes Sanchez stealing the headlines, Arsenal, and their French boss must turn their attention to securing a top-four finish come May. Although the Cherries may be unbeaten in their last three top-flight appearances, Bournemouth have only managed to pick up one win in their last 10 top-flight appearances. Despite the Gunners having two of their first-choice defenders absent through injury and attackers yet to hit consistent form in front of goal, there is enough quality in this Arsenal side to see of a struggling Bournemouth side.

They could win back-to-back games at the Vitality Stadium for the first time since last March.
