These teams last met in the Premier League in 2016. Bournemouth won this game 2-1. Over their last 3 meetings however, Aston Villa has won 2 out of 3.
Bournemouth was looking good in their opener against Sheffield, but a late goal allowed cost them 2 points at home. Currently, they sit in 8th with their 1 point and will look to do a better joob at closing out the game.
The Bournemouth was not great against Sheffield, but they definitely should have won the game. Chris Mepham scored in the 62nd minute, but that was really the only bright spot in the match. They had 13 shots, but only 3 were on target, so they wasted a ton of chances in this regard. Now going on the road they face another newly promoted club and will need to finish them off earlier.
A foul by the defense which led to a free kick which led to Sheffield scoring was the difference in this game. Because of that, the key for Bournemouth will be to improve their defending on set pieces. If they do that, there is a good chance they will leave with at least a point.
Aston Villa lost to Tottenham in their opener by a score of 3-1. They are still looking for their first points of the season after blowing an early lead to the Spurs.
Aston Villa scored in the 9th minute, but after that their attack was lacking. They only managed a total of 7 shots, with 4 on target. They also only had 30% of possession. They will likely need to score more than once if they are going to win against Bournemouth.
The defending was as good as most could ask for until the final 20 minutes of the game. Goals allowed in the 73rd, 86th, and 90th minute easily sealed the defeat for Aston Villa. They need to focus on keeping the ball out of their own half because Tottenham ended up with 31 shots.
