Arsenal face Bournemouth on Sunday hoping to end a run of three consecutive draws in all competitions, and the mood at least looks positive at training.

Arsene Wenger’s side have stuttered in November again as performances have been poor in recent weeks, but if there is a positive to take away from it all it’s that they’ve managed to remain unbeaten to stretch their run to 18 games in all competitions.

Lucas Perez has been out injured since last month’s EFL Cup win over Reading, but based on the image below it looks as though the Spanish forward is pushing for a return and could be in contention for next week’s clash with Southampton according to Arsene Wenger this week, as reported by the Metro.

Meanwhile, it was all smiles for the likes of Mesut Ozil and Alexis Sanchez as the pair look to be enjoying themselves in training on Saturday.

Arsenal will hope that the pair can inspire them on Sunday to see off the Cherries, as the Gunners need a fast start, a convincing display and a positive result to get over their recent troubles and make a statement that they are still worthy of being considered a genuine title contender.
