Bournemouth’s Harry Arter believes there are a number of things that his side can do to take the points at the Emirates this weekend, including playing on any pressure the crowd might put on the home side.

Bournemouth are flying high this season. Tenth in the league, they are looking like a very decent side, helped, of course, in no small part by the arrival of Jack Wilshere.

Jack won’t be able to play on Saturday due to Premier League rules regarding loan players and their parent clubs, but Arter thinks they can do it without him.

“I think these kind of clubs [Arsenal] always have the pressure on them,” he told BBC Radio Solent. “The fans will be expecting them to beat us.

“If we can stay in the game and get a break, I’m sure it will get a bit nervy at their end and that’s when we feel we can hurt them.”

He then went on to speak about Jack.

“He’s an unbelievable player,” Arter added. “He’s probably one of England’s most talented players, and one of our most talented players in the squad without a shadow of a doubt.

“I can’t pinpoint one thing I’ve learned from him. But his all-round game can take not just myself, but everyone on to the next level.

“He’s getting fitter and that can only be good for England and also ourselves.”

Arsenal’s game against Bournemouth will be refereed by Mike Jones, and you can read why that isn’t such a good thing right here.
