Iwobi Preferred Ahead Of Manchester-Bound Sanchez In Arsenal Starting Line-upNigeria international Alex Iwobi will feature from the very beginning in Arsenal's match day 23 Premier League fixture against Bournemouth at the Vitality Stadium.

Manager Arsene Wenger has named the number seventeen in his starting XI for the second game running, but Chile superstar Alexis Sanchez has been omitted from the 18 fueling speculation that his departure from the Emirates Stadium is imminent.

Sanchez is on the shopping list of Manchester clubs United and City, and it appears the powers that be at Arsenal are now willing to sell him or he'll leave the club as a free agent in the off season.

Prior to today's meeting with the Cherries, Iwobi has been included  in the starting line-up 9 times for Premier League games and he came off the bench in three matches.

Bournemouth winger Jordon Ibe is set to play a similar role as the Hale End Academy product, with the former Liverpool wonderkid operating from the right wing.

Arsenal Starting XI: Cech, Chambers, Mustafi, Holding, Bellerin, Wilshere, Xhaka, Maitland-Niles, Iwobi, Welbeck, Lacazette

Substitutes : Ospina, Kolasinac, Mertesacker, Elneny, Ramsey, Walcott, Nketiah

Bournemouth starting XI: Begovic, Francis, Steve Cook, Ake, Adam Smith, Lewis Cook, Gosling, Daniels, Ibe, Fraser, Callum Wilson.

Substitutes: Boruc, Surman, Pugh, Arter, Afobe, Mousset, Simpson.
