Match Preview

The sides around Bournemouth picked up points yesterday and the defeat midweek to Burnley has seen them slip to 16th in the table on 14 points. That defeat by Burnley ended a run of 3 without defeat and dented the improving form of the south coast side. They have won 2, lost 2 and draw 1 of the last 5 and have picked up 7 points from the sides at the bottom, beating Newcastle, Huddersfield and draw against Swansea. They are without Smith, Mings, Stanislas and Federici for this fixture. They’ve struggled for results at home this season with 2 wins, 1 draw and 4 defeats. Goals have been hard to come by for Bournemouth this season with just 12 scored in 14 games. The majority of those have come at home with 8 scored in 7 home games. They’ve managed 2 clean sheets and have failed to score on 2 occasions. Most of those positive results and goals have come in recent fixtures and they are playing reasonably well right now. Southampton are 12 in the table on 16 points. They’ve struggled for form and goals recently, but hammered Everton 4-1 last weekend. They almost took a point away from the Etihad, but were denied by a 96th minute Sterling screamer. They’ve lost 3 out of the last 5 picking up a point away at Brighton and the 3 against Everton. Cedric, Long and Targett are all unavailable for this fixture. Away from home they’ve picked up just 5 points from 18 with 1 win and 2 draws. They’ve scored just 4 goals in those fixtures and have conceded 8. They’ve failed to score on 2 occasions, and have kept 2 clean sheets. They are set up fairly defensively and will try and keep a clean sheet. Bournemouth have played a more defensive style of late and it should be a very tight South Coast derby. It’s tough to pick between them, and a draw is likely.
