Stat Attack

  • Bournemouth have won two of eight previous Premier League meetings against Burnley (W2, L6).
  • Burnley have won three of their four Premier League visits to Bournemouth (W3, L1).
  • Jay Rodriguez has scored in each of Burnley’s last two league matches against Bournemouth (W2), with the Clarets keeping clean sheets on both occasions.
  • Dominic Solanke has produced more shots than any other Bournemouth player this season (24).
  • Josh Brownhill has made more crosses than any other Burnley player this season (25).



Having been punished for a lack of end product aside from Solanke’s first-half goal in their loss against Wolves, Bournemouth just need to find any spark to ignite their league campaign because poor marking again proved costly.

Burnley meanwhile were totally outclassed at Brentford with sloppy defending and were luckily to not be battered by more than three goals, whilst their attack lacked much quality and intensity which must improve if they want to boost their survival prospects.

Add in their league positions and this game feels must-win for both teams but if Bournemouth can just cut out their defensive mistakes, they might just have enough in them to snatch a draw amidst their poor Premier League record against Burnley.

Prediction: Bournemouth 1-1 Burnley

Result: Bournemouth 2-1 Burnley
