Looking to carry on their very impressive start to the season, Bournemouth will welcome a struggling Southampton side to the vitality Stadium on Saturday afternoon.
Starting with Saturday’s hosts, after enjoying their best start to a Premier League campaign, Bournemouth have their sights set on securing a shock playoff position. In their opening eight Premier League games, the Cherries have won five, drawn one and lost two, scoring 16 and conceding 12 in return. No team outside of the top four currently holds a better-attacking record. With a points tally of 16, a win on Saturday could see them jump into the Champions League positions. As for their recent form, Bournemouth have won four of their last five matches in all competitions.
As for the visitors, after only just avoiding relegation last season, it has been another worrying start for Southampton. In their opening eight Premier League games, the Saints have managed to pick up just one win, two draws and five defeats, scoring six and conceding 14 in return. Picking up five points out of a possible 24, the visitors now sit just two points above the bottom three. As for their form prior to the international break, Southampton have failed to win any of their last four Premier League matches, losing their last three on the bounce.
