Super Sunday: We preview Bournemouth v Southampton & Man City v West Ham
The latest round of Premier League fixtures is rounded off with a double bill of Super Sunday action.
Southampton’s visit to Bournemouth kicks us off, followed by West Ham United’s trip north to face Manchester City.
Both games are vital at both ends of the table for a handful of reasons. Let’s go a little more in-depth into the two fixtures.
Bournemouth v Southampton
The South Coast sees a battle between two ball-playing sides in Bournemouth v Southampton.
Bournemouth are 2/1 to win, Saints are 29/20, and the draw is 21/10.
Eddie Howe’s squad are struggling this season, lying in 15th place after 14 games. And Southampton aren’t exactly pulling up any trees either. The Saints are just four places above them in 11th.
After a slight purple patch, the Cherries were beaten 2-1 at home by high-flying Burnley.
Saints were all set for an excellent point against Man City until Raheem Sterling’s last-gasp winner.
Mauricio Pellegrino’s side have won just once on their travels in six league games. Bournemouth have only won twice at Dean Court.
This could be tight. Under 2.5 Goals is 4/6. Both Teams to Score – No is 20/23. You can back the draw at 19/20 in the First Half Result market.
Manchester City v West Ham
Another dramatic late win against Southampton in midweek kept City’s winning league run going.
Pep Guardiola’s charges are now up to 12 wins in a row, just two shy of the Premier League record.
They’re just 1/11 to beat West Ham here, who are a huge 28/1 to bag an unlikely victory.
David Moyes will more than likely attempt to keep it compact here in the hope of keeping the score down.
The Hammers have a poor record against City, too. The East London outfit have lost their last four in a row in this fixture – 3-1, 5-0, 4-0, 3-0.
This doesn’t look good for Moyes’ team. However, the best value looks to be a play on Both Teams to Score at 11/10.
City have been a little ropey at the back in recent games, conceding against Huddersfield and Saints.
If you’re feeling adventurous, Over 4.5 Goals is 29/20. Man of the moment Raheem Sterling is 4/1 to open the scoring.
