Bournemouth have struggled in the recent weeks, but they find themselves at a safe distance from the relegation struggle. Swansea City are not so fortunate, and they desperately need points in their fight for survival. Who will come out on top when these two sides face each other at Vitality Stadium on Saturday?
The Cherries are without a win in their last five and have lost their last three games. Last weekend, they lost 2-1 at Southampton. Ahead of this game, Bournemouth sit in the 12th spot with 38 points. The South Coast have seemingly done enough to secure their top-tier status, but a win on Saturday will see them touch the magic-40 mark.
Swansea City arrive in this game on the back of back-to-back defeats to Manchester City and Chelsea. The Welsh club are without a win in their last six games and the threat of relegation is very real for them.
They occupy the last safe spot in the league and only have a one-point cushion on Southampton. The Swans have achieved some incredible results at home under Carlos Carvalhal, but they have struggled on the road. The visitors have picked up only two away wins this season, and we don’t expect them to pick up the third on Saturday.
Earlier this season, both sides played a goalless draw at the Liberty Stadium.
