Aston Villa News and Form
Villa did a pretty good job against Spurs on the first weekend of the season. They took the lead early in the game and with less than ten minutes on the clock were heading for a 1-1 draw. Villa however, then conceded two late goals to Harry Kane and ended up losing. But there were positives from Dean Smith’s men regardless, against one of the top teams in the country. There were enough positives that bookmakers make Villa favourites on Saturday.
Villa were good on home soil in the Championship last season. They posted a W11 D8 L4 record there. Much has been made of their summer spending, racking up over £100 million in new acquisitions to try and boost their survival hopes. It is a home game like this where they will expect to mostly reap the rewards of the heavy investment. Aston Villa averaged over two goals per home game last season, with 74% of all fixtures at Villa Park seeing over 2.5 goals.
Aston Villa v Bournemouth Head to Head
The last Premier League meetings were in the 2015/16 season
Villa lead the overall head to head with a W4 D1 L2 record
Four of the seven previous meetings have ended in a 2-1 scoreline
The Cherries took a 2-1 win in their last visit to Villa Park
Bournemouth News and Form
Bournemouth had a quiet and understated start to the new Premier League season. They played out a 1-1 home draw with the newly-promoted Sheffield United. Boss Eddie Howe will probably have been disappointed with that. This on paper was a nice fixture list at the start of the season, coming out against two newly-promoted sides. They’ll just be feeling a little bit of pressure now on their trip to Villa Park. Chris Mepham opened the scoring for the Cherries last weekend, but they couldn’t see the game out.
Away from home in their top-flight travels last season, the Cherries did not have a good time of things. They ended with a W5 D1 L13 record, losing nine of their final twelve away games of the campaign in a terrible run of form. 68% of Bournemouth’s away games last season made it over 2.5 goals and a large chunk of that was down their defence which conceded at an average of 2.4 goals per road game. They also lost away at two of the three newly promoted sides in the last campaign (Wolves and Cardiff).
