Southampton News and Form
The Saints collected a very good three points last weekend with a 1-0 success at Sheffield United. That leaves them with an unbeaten W2 D1 record in their last three played. The two wins in that sequence were away from home with clean sheets. At St Mary’s this season Southampton are D1 L1 in the top flight. Those were two tough home fixtures though, the Saints going down 2-1 against Liverpool and earning the draw against Manchester United.
So they have been competitive and that makes them slight favourites on home soil for the visit of the Cherries. It is a four-match scoring streak that Southampton are on in the top flight, but they are looking for their first home clean sheet of the season. All five of the league goals that Southampton have produced this season have come in the second half of matches.
Four of the six that they have conceded have been after the halftime break. The sSaints have suffered just two defeats in their last eight home fixtures in the top-flight (W3 D3). However they are currently on a four-match winless streak at St Mary’s. That run started with a 3-3 draw against Bournemouth back in April. Southampton have not taken a clean sheet in any of their last seven home games in the Premier League action.

The last two meetings at Southampton have gone over 2.5 goals
Both teams have scored in four of the last six meetings
Bournemouth News and Form
The Cherries also got themselves a win last weekend as they eased to a 3-1 home victory over Everton. That snapped a run of back to back defeats for Bournemouth and it means that a 3-1 scoreline has appeared in each of their last three league fixtures (W1 L2). There has not been a clean sheet earned by Eddie Howe’s men yet in this campaign, but they have outscored Southampton by three goals.
But then that balances out as Southampton have conceded three fewer goals than Bournemouth have done this season. Bournemouth had some serious struggles on the road last season. At one point they went on a nine-match losing streak on the road in the top flight and have therefore won only three of their last 16 away games in the Premier League (D1 L12).
Bournemouth have conceded at least two goals in each of their last eight away defeats in the Premier League. The Cherries have netted the opening goal in three of their five league games this season, leading at half time in just one. All three of the away goals that they have scored have happened in the first half of road games. Each of Bourmeouth’s last five away games have gone over 2.5 goals.
