Eddie Howe rings the changes from Wednesday for his side to take on Arsenal this evening.

After making eight changes to the side that drew with Wolves for the Carabao Cup game with Manchester United, Howe has once again reverted to the starting XI that competed in the Premier League last weekend.

It's exactly as we predicted with Callum Wilson back to lead the line with his usual cohorts on either side of him in Anthony Gordon and Miguel Almiron.

We were 100% right with our lineup prediction

Joe Willock is dropped to the bench but you can be sure he will come on at some point to have a go at his old employers. Willock was the only one we thought may trip up our prediction.

We nailed it again!

Lewis Miley has made the bench after being out for weeks with glandular fever, although we don't expect to see him on the pitch at any point.

It's about as strong a side as Howe could have picked in terms of available first-team players, and with Lewis Hall and Tino Livramento probably still buzzing from midweek, there are some strong options on the bench too.

We cannot call how the game is going to go

As for how this side will fair against Arsenal, we honestly have no idea. We've tried and tried to predict this one but it's too close to call.

A draw probably seems like the most likely result, but it really could go either way.

It would be fantastic to be the first side to defeat them in the Premier League this season.
