Fraser excited for Gunners test
Bournemouth winger Ryan Fraser is relishing the chance to test himself against top teams over the next few weeks.
The Cherries made a strong start to 2018-19 but their form tailed off prior to the international break as they suffered back-to-back defeats at the hands of Manchester United and Newcastle.
Despite recent results, they still sit sixth in the Premier League and will be hoping to get back on track when they return to action on Sunday.
Arsenal, who are unbeaten in 16 games across all competitions, travel to the Vitality Stadium this weekend before Bournemouth travel to league leaders Manchester City the following Saturday.
Fraser admits it will be difficult for the south coast outfit to take anything from the two games but hopes they can spring a surprise.
“We’ve got Arsenal on Sunday and it’s a massive game. We’ve then got Manchester City after that, so two hard games but hopefully we can get something out of them,” he told Bournemouth’s official website.
“We’ve had really good games against Arsenal in the past; they’re obviously different under the new manager and we’re a different team this season too. We both like to score goals and I think it’ll be an interesting game.”
