Bournemouth v Arsenal preview: Jack Wilshere in contention to play

The New Year has seen both managers trade barbs

Mesut Ozil is a doubt for Arsenal's Premier League clash against Bournemouth on Sunday but Jack Wilshere could feature, Arsene Wenger has confirmed.

Having spent last season on loan with the Cherries, Wilshere will understandably be keen to be involved, but Arsene Wenger is unlikely to risk a man with such a checkered past when it comes to injuries.

"The performance of Alexis Sanchez and the commitment does not depend on the duration of his contract, just depends on the fact when he's on the football pitch he wants to play".

Speaking after the Carabao Cup semi-final first leg stalemate at Stamford Bridge on Wednesday night, when Sanchez came off the substitutes' bench, Wenger said: "People don't know Alexis Sanchez".

Wenger will be able to call upon Wales global Aaron Ramsey, however, as he returned to the squad after being ruled out for over a month.

Arsenal have conceded four penalty goals in their last three games in all competitions.

Laurent Koscielny, Nacho Monreal and Sead Kolasinac are now out injured which could open up the possibility of Mavropanos featuring in the coming games.

Wesley Mathews indicted for capital murder
Mathews had initially told authorities he made Sherin stand outside because she wouldn't drink her milk, and she disappeared. If convicted on the capital murder charge, Wesley Mathews faces the death penalty or life in prison without parole.

Koscielny has been out with an Achilles injury while Monreal and Kolasinac both have ankle problems but the defensive trio should return for the visit of Crystal Palace to the Emirates. Olivier Giroud is two weeks away'.

According to the Daily Mirror, Jack Wilshere is set to receive a new Arsenal contract during expected talks which are set to commence next week. He's not out of the game on Sunday yet, so that is positive news. We have an uncertainty over Ozil, who will have a test earliest tomorrow.

"We tried with all our strength to win the game", Chelsea boss Antonio Conte said. That at the moment is a bit 50:50.

It's his ankle. He turned his ankle when he was blocking the shot.

It's a big relief because sometimes we have a tendency to be a bit more dramatic than we should be.

Wenger will serve the final match of his touchline ban at Bournemouth and said: 'I would prefer to be in the dugout of course but I have to respect my ban and fortunately it's the last game.

He is two weeks away.
