Bournemouth – Fulham Predictions and Preview

  • After a slow start to their Premier League (PL) campaign, Andoni Iraola’s Bournemouth are now the hottest property in the division, picking up more points than any other side across the previous six rounds (W5, D1). That run culminated in a 3-2 comeback win over Nottingham Forest, but it was bitter-sweet for Iraola who collected a yellow card that means he’s banned from the dugout for the visit of Fulham.
  • The omens look strong for a continuation of that fine form as Bournemouth have lost just one of the last 12 H2Hs against the Cottagers (W6, D5, L1), with that sole defeat coming back in 2019. Another three points in this particular meeting would be nothing short of historic, as the Cherries have never won a PL game played on Boxing Day (D3, L2). In fact, Grimsby are the only side in English top-flight history to have played more times on this day without ever winning!
  • In contrast to their imperious hosts, Fulham have been rocked by following up back-to-back 5-0 wins with five unanswered goals conceded across their two most recent PL outings (L2). The Cottagers were involved in what was arguably the shock of the weekend as they were beaten 2-0 at home against relegation candidates Burnley, especially after reaching a League Cup semi-final for the first time ever in midweek.
  • Despite their recent setbacks, historical trends seem to favour an away resurgence here as London sides have lost just one of their last 16 away games at Bournemouth (W8, D7). Granted, the sole loss in that sequence belonged to Fulham in this corresponding fixture last season, yet a six-game unbeaten run of Boxing Day league games may buoy the visitors psychologically (W3, D3).
  • Players to watch: Dominic Solanke’s hat-trick in the last round has him one goal shy (G11) of doubling his six PL goal tally from the entirety of last season. Most notably, two of those six goals came against Fulham. Alex Iwobi could be the man for Fulham, having scored three goals across their last three league wins, including two match openers inside the opening 30 minutes.
  • Hot stat: All but one of Fulham boss Marco Silva’s last seven personal H2Hs against Bournemouth saw both teams score on the day.
