Bournemouth remain without striker Jermain Defoe, who is recovering from a fractured ankle, while forward Josh King has an "outside chance" of featuring, according to Howe, per Neil Perrett at the Bournemouth Daily Echo.

Wenger, however, signed a new deal at Arsenal a year ago and said he was as committed as ever to seeing out his contract.

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

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.
