Bournemouth Prediction – Can Bournemouth make most of home advantage?

Bournemouth went into the international break on the back of a narrow 1-0 defeat away at Arsenal but The Cherries return to home turf at their Vitality Stadium this Saturday where they’ve lost just 1 of their opening 4 matches so far in this Premier League campaign.

The hosts have produced some mixed results in recent weeks as Eddie Howe’s side have captured back-to-back wins against Everton and south coast rivals, Southampton, but have also suffered defeats to Leicester City and the aforementioned loss at Arsenal, but both of these losses were inflicted upon them on their travels.

On home turf, Bournemouth’s one defeat so far this term was an understandable 3-1 loss to Manchester City, but the win over Everton along with points earned in 1-1 and 2-2 draws with Sheffield United and West Ham respectively give Bournemouth a good chance of collecting all three points against Norwich City.

In addition, Bournemouth have registered wins in both of their last 2 meetings against Norwich City so they’ll fancy their chances of securing a second home win here.

Norwich City Prediction – Can Norwich avoid fourth defeat on trot?

Amidst the attacking, entertaining and swashbuckling style of play upon their return to the Premier League, Norwich City seem to have been picked off by various teams so far in this campaign which has left The Canaries in the bottom three of the top flight.

3 defeats on the trot against Burnley, Crystal Palace and a 5-1 thrashing at the hands of fellow newcomers, Aston Villa, could spell further trouble for Norwich both this Saturday against Bournemouth but also the remainder of this campaign as there seems to be very little in terms of any defensive capability.

This lack of defensive nous has seen Norwich lose to teams that they’d have earmarked to get points against, and although they pulled off what could perhaps be the biggest shock result of the season with a 3-2 win against Manchester City, this will be very little comfort if The Canaries get relegated this season.

On the road, Norwich have lost all 4 of their away matches on the trot amidst an overall away record of 0-0-4 1/10 which includes defeats at Liverpool 4-1, West Ham 2-0, Burnley 2-0 and another 2-0 loss at Crystal Palace.


Key-Facts – Bournemouth v Norwich City

  • Bournemouth have lost just 1 of their 4 home matches in the Premier League
  • Norwich City have lost all 4 away matches so far this season in the EPL
  • Bournemouth have won the last 2 meetings on the trot against Norwich City


Betting Tips Verdict

Bournemouth look the better equipped to take the points here against a Norwich side who have been leaking goals away from home on a regular basis.
