Vitality Stadium - home to AFC Bournemouth

Full name: Bournemouth Association Football Club
Manager: Eddie Howe
Club colours: Red and black
Nickname: The Cherries


Three facts about Bournemouth:

  • The Cherries came into this season off the back of their most successful Premier League campaign ever, finishing 9th
  • Bournemouth have lost all three of their league games so far this season
  • Manager Eddie Howe used to play for the club - he was a defender


Key man: Josh King

The Norwegian forward struggled for form after leaving Manchester United, where he had come through the youth ranks. However, since linking up with Howe at Bournemouth, King has proven to be a revelation with pace, power and clinical finishing. Arsenal will need to watch out for the Cherries' front man on Saturday.
