To do that, they'll have to upset a few big guns along the way - but Scott Parker's side are likely to struggle against Mikel Arteta's Gunners, who have judiciously brought in some strong new faces to bolster their prospects of cracking back into the top four.

Team news and rosters

PositionBournemouth roster
Goalkeepers Travers, Neto, Dennis
Defenders Fredericks, Kelly, Mepham, Smith, Stacey, Hill, Sensei, Zemura
Midfielders Cook, Brooks, Lerma, Christie, Marcondes, Rothwell, Tavernier, Stanislas, Pearson, Billing
Forwards Solanke, Lowe, Dembélé, Moore, Anthony, Saydee

Back in the top flight after a brief stint down in the second tier, Bournemouth shot out of the gates with a 2-0 win over Aston Villa to show they'll be no pushover this term - and even though Manchester City cowed them with a 4-0 rout, there was enough promise to suggest they could spark well this term.

Scott Parker's biggest concern could well be the depth of his squad - a few crucial injuries here and there might wreck havoc with his hopes to keep them in the Premier League. They'll hope to weather these tougher tests unscathed.

Predicted Bournemouth starting XI: Travers; Lerma, Senesi, Kelly; Smith, Cook, Billing, Zemura; Tavernier, Moore, Solanke.

PositionArsenal roster
Goalkeepers Ramsdale, Turner
Defenders Bellerín, Tierney, White, Gabriel, Saliba, Holding, Soares, Tomiyasu, Zinchenko
Midfielders Partey, Saka, Ødegaard, Smith Rowe, Maitland-Niles, Vieira, Sambi Lokonga, Elneny, Xhaka

Forwards

Jesus, Martinelli, Nketiah, Pépé, Nelson, Marquinhos

Never mind the top four - could Arsenal be a dark horse title contender this term? Mikel Arteta has raided old club City for a pair of cast-offs anyone would love to have, with Gabriel Jesus in particular looking like he could be the buy of the summer.

But whether the Gunners can keep that momentum and dodge pitfall results - an issue they have crucially botched several times before - remains to be seen. Whatever the result, it's bound to be a ride.

Predicted Arsenal starting XI: Ramsdale; White, Saliba, Gabriel, Zinchenko; Thomas, Xhaka; Saka, Odegaard, Martinelli; Jesus.
