Southampton vs Bournemouth Premier League match preview
Week six of the Premier League kicks off on Friday night with Southampton hosting South Coast rivals Bournemouth at St Mary’s.
Southampton are unbeaten in their last four matches in all competitions, including their 1-1 draw against Manchester United. Last weekend Ralph Hasenhuttl’s side won 1-0 away at Sheffield United. Moussa Djenepo scored the only goal of the game as the Blades finished with 10 men.
Bournemouth bounced back from their 3-1 defeat at Leicester to win by the same scoreline when they hosted Everton last Sunday. Callum Wilson opened and closed the scoring on the day, while substitute Ryan Fraser also found the back of the net.
Both the Saints and the Cherries are on 7 points after five matches, each with two wins, two defeats and a draw. Both have a goal difference of -1 but Bournemouth are one position higher in ninth due to scoring three more goals than Southampton.
Southampton have faced Bournemouth eight times in the Premier League, winning on three occasions and losing once.
The two sides played out a thrilling 3-3 draw in their last meeting at St. Mary’s in April. Shane Long, James Ward-Prowse and Matt Target scored for the home side while Dan Gosling and Callum Wilson (2) netted for the visitors.
