Bournemouth take on Southampton at the Vitality Stadium on Saturday, Oct. 20. Here’s all the info you need to watch.
Two teams at very different ends of the Premier League table will face off on Saturday in Bournemouth.
The Cherries currently stand in sixth place in the league, and will be looking to build on an already strong start to their season. The hosts are currently enjoying a two game unbeaten streak, and have scored an impressive six goals in their last two games. Josh King has been the main man for Bournemouth this season, he leads the team with four goals. Callum Wilson has been equally as impressive with four assists through the team’s first eight games.
Bournemouth’s opposition on Saturday, Southampton, find themselves on the edge of crisis early in the season. The Saints are in 16th place, only two points clear of the relegation line and three points clear of the very bottom of the table. They’ve lost – and have failed to score in – their last three games. In their defense, Southampton have faced stiff competition over the last three weeks, with the likes of Chelsea, Wolves and Liverpool. Still, losing streaks are hard for teams to recover from, and bad form can lead to even more losses.
Bournemouth have gotten off to a very fast start in the Premier League this season, and continuing that start will be a top priority. Few expected the Cherries to be in this spot, among the the league’s elite at the top of the table. For their success to last, it will need to be sustained in games like this. Expect them to come into Saturday’s game with a sense of urgency.
