Southampton Prediction – Can Southampton extend unbeaten run?

Following a difficult start to the new Premier League campaign which resulted in back-to-back defeats for Southampton away at Burnley 3-0 and a 2-1 defeat at home to Liverpool, The Saints have since bounced back with some promising results of late.

Back-to-back wins on the road at another south coast rival, Brighton, in a 2-0 win at The AMEX Stadium followed by a 1-0 win at newly-promoted Sheffield United, has relieved the pressure on Southampton manager, Ralph Hasenhuttl and his players, as well as a solid point in a 1-1 draw at home with Manchester United.

Southampton will now head into Friday night’s south coast clash with Bournemouth in a more confident frame of mind, although they’re due to be without the services of Nathan Redmond. Che Adams is expected to lead the line for the hosts whose last 15 home matches have seen both teams score.

The hosts will always give the opposition opportunities to score whilst creating and scoring chances in front of goal themselves, so the goals markets appeal here.

Bournemouth Prediction – Can Bournemouth build on last week?

Friday night’s visitors, Bournemouth, make the relatively short trip along the south coast for this interesting encounter against Southampton which usually produces a few goals as both teams adopt an attacking approach to this meeting.

For their part, Bournemouth also suffered recent back-to-back defeats to Manchester City and Leicester City, both by 3-1 margins, but The Cherries managed to bounce back in last weekend’s convincing 3-1 home win over Everton.

Bournemouth occupy a mid-table position in the Premier League with their Friday night’s hosts, Southampton, with both teams sitting on 7 points apiece, and the visitors will also be eyeing off all three points here as they look to cash in against a team outside of the Big 6.

Matches involving Bournemouth are usually highly entertaining as they don’t know how to defend but are very capable of scoring goals through the likes of goalscoring midfielders, Harry Wilson and Fraser, as well as forwards King and Callum Wilson providing regular goal threats.

In addition, each of Bournemouth’s last 4 away matches have resulted in both teams scoring, and this trend looks set to continue on Friday night.
