Arsenal coach to make changes following defeat

By Buckley Fedha

Arsenal coach Arsene Wenger could make changes following the crushing defeat at Southampton when the Gunners face Bournemouth tonight at the Emirates stadium.

Substitutes Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain, Calum Chambers and Alex Iwobi all impressed Wenger during that game and may be given a chance to play Monday night.

Bournemouth tactician Eddie Howe will make a late decision on whether to include Harry Arter, who was brought off at half-time on Boxing Day in order to nurse him back from injury.

Lee Tomlin could return from a groin injury but Josh King remains sidelined.

A win for the gunners sends them top of the table with current leaders Leicester not in action Monday.

Meanwhile, Chelsea will be without striker Diego Costa, who is suspended for accumulating five bookings this season when they travel to Old Trafford to face Manchester United in one of the eight Barclays Premier League matches on card Monday.

Eden Hazard could return to the starting line-up after making his comeback from the bench on Saturday.

Manchester United captain Wayne Rooney could be recalled after he was only named as a substitute against Stoke City on Saturday.

Midfielder Bastian Schweinsteiger returns from suspension and defender Matteo Darmian could be available following a hamstring injury.

Chelsea have won six Premier League games at Old Trafford, more than any other visiting side.

This is the first time since 1961 that Manchester United have lost four competitive matches in a row during a single season.

In other matches on card today, Arsenal will host Bournemouth, West Ham face Southampton, Crystal Palace play Swansea, Stoke visit Everton, Norwich battle Aston Villa, Watford host Tottenham while West Brom clash with Newcastle.
