Bournemouth will play their first English Premier League Game in a long time when they host Aston Villa at the Vitality Stadium on Saturday, August 8, 2015. Kick off for this game is scheduled to take place at 15:00 hours BST.
Matt Ritchie was clearly the star performer for Bournemouth in the previous season which saw them get promoted to the Premier League. He along with some good additions will need to replicate that form in order to ensure survival. This game by no means will be easy for them.
Aston Villa who survived by the skin of their teeth last season have a deadly challenge up in front of them. They will start this season without star performers Christian Benteke and Damian Delph. These two players have left the club for pastures green. Their exit puts pressure on existing players like Jack Grealish and Gabriel Agbonlahor. Paul Lambert, manager, will have to look elsewhere for inspiration if his team needs to start this campaign off positively.
When you compare the team sheets, there may not be a lot to separate them, but sheer premier league experience should count for a lot and should be enough for Villa to take the three points from this game. We can expect the Villians to win this game 2-0 with ease.
