Wilshere, who spent last season on loan at Bournemouth but failed to score in 29 appearances, captained Arsenal at Stamford Bridge and wrote on Instagram: "Hope my injury is not too bad and I'm back as soon as possible".

The Gunners also fell in their FA Cup opener for the first time since Wenger took over as manager, dropping a 4-2 result against Championship side Nottingham Forest last weekend.

Bournemouth remain without striker Jermain Defoe, who is recovering from a fractured ankle, while forward Josh King has an "outside chance" of featuring, according to Howe, per Neil Perrett at the Bournemouth Daily Echo.

Midfielder Mesut Ozil is rated as a 50-50 chance of playing and Jack Wilshere is a doubt with an ankle injury.

The long-serving Frenchman speaking ahead of the Premier League match at Bournemouth on Sunday, insisted he will continue at the Emirates until the end of next season - at the very earliest.

Wenger, however, signed a new deal at Arsenal past year and said he was as committed as ever to seeing out his contract.

Arsene Wenger acknowledges Arsenal will not let Alexis Sanchez leave until a replacement is signed.

Wenger's side can ill afford any more slip-ups if they are to secure a top-four spot and, with it, a return to the UEFA Champions League.

Arsenal's last match at Bournemouth also came in January past year as they came from 3-0 down to claim a point, a match in which they lined up strongly in.

"Last season I was on the bench but remember it being a really good game, we were 3-0 down and had to come back", Holding told Arsenal's official website.
