The Gunners have not made it past this stage of the competition in either of the past two seasons, but go into the game still unbeaten so far in 2020 - albeit off the back of three successive draws.
Like Arsenal, Bournemouth have suffered a disappointing league campaign so far but did end their losing streak with a 3-1 triumph over Brighton & Hove Albion in midweek.
Here, Sports Mole looks at how Mikel Arteta could line his side up for the contest.
Out: David Luiz (suspended), Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang (suspended), Reiss Nelson (hamstring), Sead Kolasinac (thigh), Kieran Tierney (shoulder), Calum Chambers (knee)
Doubtful: Sokratis Papastathopoulos (illness)
Arteta will be without two key players through suspension for this match, with David Luiz joining captain Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang on the sidelines as a result of his red card against Chelsea.
Both players will be back available against Burnley next Sunday, though, as Luiz has only been given a one-game ban whereas Aubameyang is serving the third and final match of his suspension.
Rob Holding is expected to come in for Luiz at the back, while Sokratis Papastathopoulos should also be in contention again after missing out in midweek due to illness.
There may also be a rare appearance for Dani Ceballos, whose future beyond the end of his loan spell seems uncertain having so far failed to work his way into Arteta's first-team plans.
The Gunners' options are slightly limited by injuries, though, with third-round match-winner Reiss Nelson among those in the treatment room.body check tags ::
