Wilshere, who was captaining Arsenal at Stamford Bridge, was substituted in the second half after he was seemingly hurt in the process of blocking a cross.

The Gunners were knocked out of the FA Cup third round to Nottingham Forest last week and now face the prospect of Alexis Sanchez leaving the club this month, with Manchester City and Manchester United circling. "We will have Ramsey back in the squad", Wenger confirmed.

Jermain Defoe and Tyrone Mings remain sidelined with long-term injury issues.

Bournemouth haven't won any of their six games in all competitions against Arsenal (D1 L5), conceding at least twice in every match.

Arsenal are aiming to try and break back into the top four this season after the disappointment of their fifth-placed finish last term left them playing Europa League football.

Mark Lawrenson is tipping Bournemouth to hold Arsenal to a 1-1 draw in the Premier League on Sunday afternoon at the Vitality Stadium.

The Cherries have conceded in each of their last nine Premier League games - only Stoke (12) are on a longer current run coming into this matchday.

Arsenal go into their showdown with Eddie Howe's side off the back of a four-game winless run in all competitions.

The last time Arsenal drew three consecutive Premier League games was in September 2014; while they've not drawn three in a row when scoring the first goal since December 2008.

Jordon Ibe has recorded the most shots on target without finding the net in the Premier League this season (10). "Good news is I should be back in a couple of days".

Arsene Wenger acknowledges Arsenal will not let Alexis Sanchez leave until a replacement is signed.

Arsenal, who are sixth in the table, travel to Bournemouth and host Crystal Palace in the league before the second leg of the League Cup semi-final on January 24.

"I'm going to go with another draw in this game too, because Arsenal are pretty inconsistent away from home - which is a worry".
