Action from bottom half of the Premier League is coming your way this weekend, with AFC Bournemouth welcoming Watford to the Vitality Stadium. The match will be played on Saturday afternoon.
The hosts are sitting at the 11th place with 25 points, but their performance in the recent weeks has been quite disappointing. With three defeats and a draw in their last five matches, they need another win here to retain their position. However, that may be easier said than done, given that they have drawn against Watford in five of their last six meetings.
Nonetheless, they will be coming in this match with some confidence, seeing that Watford have lost their last five away fixtures. Moreover, they have failed to score in last three of them. They last played host to Middlesbrough, whom they drew to a goalless draw.
The Cherries are a side which is capable of scoring against the big teams, especially at home. Their 4-3 win against Liverpool and 3-3 draw against Arsenal proves just how deadly they can be when playing in the Vitality Stadium. Junior Stanislas and Nathan Ake have been in a terrific form over the last few matches. Watford have got a Herculean task ahead of them, and they need to salvage some points here if they don't want to slip down further in the table.
AFC Bournemouth will take on Watford in what is the first clash between these two sides in the English Premier League ever. This game is expected to take place on Saturday, October 3, 2015 at 15:00 hours BST.
AFC Bournemouth lost their previous game which saw them stay in the bottom half of the table. They were beaten 2-1 at the hands of Stoke City. However, they will be hoping to turn things around when they take on Watford, a team that they have played over and over again the Championship. The home advantage should be a great boost to the team. They will miss the attacking powers of Wilson who is out due to injury.
Watford also enters this game on the back of a loss. They have been in good form just a couple of points off the middle of the table. A win in this game could see them draw away from the relegation battle. Odion Ighalo will be the main man for the team going forward. He has been in good goal scoring form.
This game could be a fun watch given that the teams know each other inside out. A win for the home side is highly possible.
