Bournemouth vs Liverpool – Betting Tips and Predictions

Bournemouth came up short during the midweek as they lost 1-0 at Manchester United, but they would be looking to cause an upset when Liverpool visit Vitality Stadium on Sunday.

Newcastle United vs AFC Bournemouth – betting tips and predictions

Newcastle United have done well for themselves following a poor start to the new season, and they will consider themselves as favourites to beat Bournemouth at St James’ Park on Saturday.

Bournemouth vs Leicester City – betting tips and predictions

Bournemouth are desperate for points ahead of their league game against Leicester City at Vitality Stadium on Saturday. The Cherries have registered just three points this season – a 2-1 home win over Brighton, and they sit second-from-bottom in the league table.

Bournemouth vs Brighton and Hove Albion – predictions and betting tips

Bournemouth are desperate for points as they prepare to face their South Coast rivals Brighton at Vitality Stadium on Friday night. The Cherries are without a point this season and currently sit second-from-bottom in the league. The combined striking talent of Jermain Defoe, Joshua King and Benik Afobe has failed to find the net, and Cherries’ only goal this season was scored by Charlie Daniels in the 2-1 defeat to Manchester City. In their last fixture, they were comfortably beaten 3-0 at Arsenal, but manager Eddie Howe would be hoping…

AFC Bournemouth vs Watford predictions and betting tips

Bournemouth will look to put first points of the season on board when they host Watford at Vitality Stadium on Saturday. The Cherries lost 1-0 at West Brom on the opening weekend of the season.

Ibrahivomic to face three-match ban

After admitting to a charge of violent conduct, Manchester United striker Zlatan Ibrahimovic has been hit with a three-match suspension, according to the FA’s official website. The striker was involved in a rather nasty incident with Bournemouth left-back Tyrone Mings during the United vs Bournemouth game on Saturday, an incident that saw both parties receive yellows, instead of deserved reds, and another Bournemouth player, Andrew Surman, receive his own marching orders. This suspension means that the Swede, who has scored an impressive 26 goals for the Manchester side already this…

Arsenal midfielder backed to leave the club

Arsenal midfielder Jack Wilshere, currently on loan at Bournemouth, is in the crucial stage of his career. The 24-year-old’s career has been hampered by injuries in recent years, and he had to join the Cherries on a season-long loan in the summer to get regular playing time. It’s the testament to his injury problems that Saturday’s game against Tottenham was the first time he completed 90 minutes in about two years. Now, the question that begs to be to be asked is whether the England international still has a future…

Premier League Season Review – AFC Bournemouth

AFC Bournemouth: 16th FA Cup: Round Five Capital One Cup: Round Four As Bournemouth came into their first ever season in the English top-flight, there were regular reminders that this particular bow came just six years after narrowly escaping relegation from the Football League itself, amid severe financial difficulties. It is an incredible rise led by the mercurial Eddie Howe, who epitomises the spirit of the club and was always up to the task of preventing an instant return to the Championship. In a rather better financial position these days,…

Twitter celebrated Wayne Rooney’s historic goal at Old Trafford

Manchester United had to play Bournemouth two days after a fake bom was discovered at Old Trafford, as their encounter on Sunday was abandoned. The Red Devils couldn’t afford a loss against The Cherries, as they were eager to jump Southampton and claim the fifth place in the Premier League standings, securing a spot in the Europa League even if they don’t win the FA Cup. Wayne Rooney helped his team by putting them up 1-0 just before the break, scoring his 100th goal at Old Trafford. Not surprisingly, Twitter…

Man Utd vs Bournemouth – Premier League preview and team news

After the original fixture was postponed in unprecedented fashion on Sunday, Manchester United take on Bournemouth in the ignominious knowledge that a top four finish is now beyond them. Only a defeat for bitter rivals Manchester City away to Swansea City could have enabled United to snatch a spot in next season’s Champions League, but they came away with a draw, so it looks set to be a major failure for both the club and manager Louis van Gaal. It remains to be seen whether this will be the Dutchman’s last league…

Bournemouth vs West Brom – Premier League preview and team news

Both Bournemouth and West Bromwich Albion are finding wins hard to come by as the Premier League season heads towards its conclusion, so will be equally determined to claim the spoils when they meet at the Vitality Stadium. The game at Everton last weekend will definitely have gone down as one Bournemouth should never have lost as they conceded two goals that were out of keeping with the general pattern of the game, while proving a little too wasteful at the other end. Benik Afobe was the main culprit as…

Everton vs Bournemouth – Premier League preview and team news

It looks set to be a sombre atmosphere at Goodison Park on Saturday as Everton begin to play out their season of dismal underachievement by taking on a Bournemouth side that has lost four of the last five games. After such a miserable showing in being embarrassed at the home of bitter rivals Liverpool just three days prior, credit has to go to Everton for the manner in which they battled so hard in their FA Cup semi-final at Wembley. A goal down at half-time, they took the game to…

Bournemouth vs Chelsea – Premier League preview and team news

Bournemouth go in search of a famous league double against a Chelsea side that will be determined to recover from successive Premier League defeats in which they have failed to score. With the exception of a trip to bottom club Aston Villa, it has been a difficult few weeks for Bournemouth. Heavy losses have been suffered against high-flying duo Tottenham and Manchester City, while last time out they came away with nothing despite a spirited showing against Liverpool, so Eddie Howe will be hoping his side have better luck here.…

Bournemouth vs Liverpool – Premier League preview and team news

After the euphoric scenes that greeted their amazing Europa League quarter-final victory on Thursday, Liverpool now resume their domestic duties with a visit to a Bournemouth side that got back to winning ways last time out. Having suffered heavy defeats in successive games against Tottenham and Manchester City, a trip to rock-bottom Aston Villa was the perfect tonic for Bournemouth, whose superiority in all departments was evident from the start. The win they earned lifted them up to 11th place, which emphasises just how well they have adapted to the Premier League, especially given it is the…

Aston Villa vs Bournemouth – Premier League preview and team news

Aston Villa can finally be put out of their misery and see their relegation confirmed this weekend, which sees them take to the field against a Bournemouth side that is hoping to hit back from successive heavy defeats. After claiming victory away to the Cherries on the opening day of the season, only two more have followed for Aston Villa and two managers have departed, so for most of the season it has been a case of when rather than if their inevitable demotion to the second tier will be rubber…

Bournemouth vs Man City – Premier League preview and team news

Manchester City will be looking to retain their increasingly slender grip on a Champions League place when they visit a Bournemouth side which will still be harbouring ambitions of a top-half finish. Home boss Eddie Howe will be calling on his team to produce an improvement for this one after they rather went down without a fight in their last match away to title hopefuls Tottenham. Behind within a minute, the Cherries rarely looked capable of mounting a recovery and duly ended up suffering a comprehensive defeat which ended an impressive run…

Tottenham vs Bournemouth – Premier League preview and team news

With no more cup distractions, Tottenham will now be focusing all of their efforts on trying to make up the gap to the top of the Premier League, beginning at home to in-form Bournemouth on Sunday. It was quite obvious from his team selections that manager Mauricio Pochettino saw the Europa League as little more than an unnecessary distraction as Spurs were well beaten 5-1 on aggregate by a far superior Borussia Dortmund. However, there are few sides better than them domestically at present as they continue to fight for…

Bournemouth vs Swansea – Premier League preview and team news

Two clubs that have made huge strides towards achieving Premier League safety of late come together to fight for three more priceless points at the Vitality Stadium, as Bournemouth take on Swansea City. Although they were up against a Newcastle United side that offered very little in opposition, Bournemouth’s performance in their 3-1 win on Tyneside was one of a comfortable, established top-flight outfit. Exuding confidence, Eddie Howe’s men produced a show of fine free-flowing football that was backed up by a cutting edge as Josh King looked dangerous throughout,…

Newcastle vs Bournemouth – Premier League preview and team news

Newcastle United will be after a much-needed third successive home win as they look to haul themselves out of the drop zone, but may have their work cut out against a Bournemouth side that has travelled well of late. This game marks the beginning of a vital run of fixtures which may play a major part in deciding the Magpies’ fate this season, as meetings with fellow relegation battlers Sunderland and Norwich City lie ahead following a trip to leaders Leicester City. They will be hoping to make the most…

Bournemouth vs Southampton – Premier League preview and team news

Bournemouth will be aiming to end a run of three successive home defeats in all competitions when they face rivals Southampton, whose run of six games unbeaten was brought to an end last time out. A draw away to mid-table Watford on Saturday was a decent result for Bournemouth as they continued to show enterprising form on their travels, but it could have been more as a couple of presentable second half chances were missed. The big positive of the afternoon, however, was the return of summer signing Max Gradel…

Watford vs Bournemouth – Premier League preview and team news

Bournemouth will be determined to increase the gap between themselves and the drop zone when they face FA Cup quarter-finalists Watford, who are just four points away from the magic 40-mark. Manager Quique Flores opted to rest several of his players for last weekend’s tie at home to Leeds United, but an own goal early in the second half was enough to see them through into the last eight of the world’s oldest domestic cup competition and further enhance what has been a tremendous season for the Hornets. Aside from…
