AFC Bournemouth vs West Bromwich Albion Match Prediction

By Bharath Ramm R

Bournemouth were let down by a late collapse against Tottenham and Eddie Howe’s team suffered a 4-1 loss. After a spirited start, the Cherries took the lead through Junior Stanislas in the seventh minute. Dele Alli, though, equalised for Mauricio Pochettino’s team in the 35th minute before Son Heung-Min extended his wonderful streak with a 62nd minute goal. Late goals from Son and Serge Aurier produced a big defeat for Bournemouth. West Brom are slipping closer to the drop after a 4-1 loss against Leicester City. Salomon Rondon powered his way into the scoresheet with an eighth minute goal. However, Leicester produced a strong comeback with goals from Jamie Vardy, Riyad Mahrez, Kelechi Iheanacho, and Iborra.

Betting Tips and Predictions

Even though Bournemouth have failed to win in four league matches, they are up against a West Brom outfit that is going down without much of a fight. Even if West Brom undergo a managerial change in the midweek, it is unlikely to help the visitors. Bournemouth have picked up two wins in the last three home games against West Brom. I would back a win for Bournemouth.

West Brom have failed to score in the last three away matches, but this record has to be taken with a pinch of salt as two of those games were against Manchester City and Chelsea. Bournemouth have been defensively poor and have also conceded more goals than West Brom this season. The last home clean sheet for Bournemouth was back in November. This gives me a lot of confidence to back both teams to score.

Bournemouth win – 17/20

Both teams to score – 4/5

AFC Bournemouth Preview

Bournemouth have not been aptly rewarded for their decent performances in the last few weeks. However, Eddie Howe will have to pick up his players quickly, as they face a couple of crucial matches in the Premier League. The defensive displays do not provide a lot of confidence for Bournemouth, but the team are aware that a couple of wins can put them into the top 10 places with ease. Bournemouth will be able to end any relegation fears with just two wins from the remaining eight matches. Callum Wilson still remains the club’s top scorer with seven league goals.

 

AFC Bournemouth Team News

Eddie Howe will be without Marc Pugh (calf), Tyrone Mings (back), and Rhoys Wiggins (knee) due to injuries.

 

West Bromwich Albion Preview

The low levels of confidence for West Brom was quite evident in the home defeat against Leicester, as the heads dropped once Leicester were able to get back at the baggies. There is a glimmer of hope that the club can avoid relegation, but it would take a remarkable set of results to do so. West Brom are seven points away from their nearest relegation rival Stoke City. There are also rumours about Pardew being sacked from his role and it does not help the situation. The baggies have fared reasonably well at the back, but they have scored the fewest goals (23) in the league.

West Bromwich Albion Team News

Pardew remains without James Morrison (Achilles tendon), Daniel Sturridge (hamstring), Gareth Barry (knee), and Nacer Chadli (hip) due to injuries.
