Arsenal, and in particular manager Arsene Wenger, are known for making sound investments when it comes to bringing in new players. They haggle and negotiate over prospective players as much as anyone in the business. From young prospects such as Hector Bellerin, Jeff Reine-Adelaide, and Rob Holding, to established veterans like Alexis Sanchez, Mesut Ozil, and Petr Cech, Wenger and company are extremely savvy on the incoming end of transfers.

How is it that we have one player who cost the sum of the Bournemouth team and yet we are fearful of failure? Is it due to Bournemouth's excellent team ethic or our team inefficiencies?

Chelsea visit Bournemouth at Dean Court on Saturday with a three-point lead over their 13th-placed hosts ahead of the weekend's action.

The Blues, 10th, are enduring the insipid end to the campaign many expected after they bowed out of the Champions League and FA Cup in March.

A 3-0 annihilation at the hands of Manchester City last Saturday illustrated the predicament Guus Hiddink will likely face until the final whistle sounds on the last day of the season on 15 May.
