AFC Bournemouth vs Brighton & Hove Albion

, KO: 14:00 Apr 28, 2024, Vitality Stadium
Brighton & Hove Albion

AFC Bournemouth will be targeting back-to-back victories in the Premier League when they welcome Brighton & Hove Albion to the Vitality Stadium on Sunday afternoon.

Andoni Iraola’s side snapped a three-game winless run by grinding out a 1-0 win away at Wolves on Wednesday night.

That Molineux victory moved the Cherries into the top half of the table and has given them a real chance of bettering their best-ever Premier League finish.

Back at their south coast base this weekend, Bournemouth will seek to make further inroads into the top ten by beating Brighton.

The Seagulls have seen their campaign fizzle out in the last few months, with just one win to show from their last seven Premier League matches.

Last time out, Roberto De Zerbi's side were swatted aside 4-0 at the Amex by Man City, on a night where my To Score or Assist selection landed.

How the bookies view it: Cherries to take charge

Bournemouth, who have won three of their last four Premier League home games, are 5/4 favourites on Bet 365.

Brighton have been poor on their travels this season and that is reflected in the match odds, with the visitors the 2/1 (Ladbrokes) outsiders while a share of the south coast spoils pays 29/10 (Bet 365).

Recent head to head: History against the hosts

Bournemouth have lost each of their last three meetings with Brighton, the most recent of which was a 3-1 defeat at the Amex back in September.

That sample of Seagulls successes also includes a 2-0 win in last season’s corresponding fixture.

Players to watch: Solanke to strike?

Despite failing to find the back of the net against Wolves in midweek, Dominic Solanke is a tempting 13/10 on Bet 365 to get on the scoresheet on Sunday. The Bournemouth talisman is enjoying his most prolific ever goal-scoring campaign in the Premier League and is very much in the mix for the coveted Golden Boot award. Whilst Solanke’s aforementioned price to strike on Sunday merits strong consideration, the shrewder option could be to side with a goal or an assist at 10/11 (PaddyPower).

The last Brighton player to score a goal in the Premier League was Danny Welbeck, who notched in a 2-1 loss at Liverpool at the end of March. The veteran forward is priced up at 27/10 on UniBet to net this weekend.

Predicted line-ups

Bournemouth will be without Milos Kerkez after he was shown a straight red card at Wolves in midweek. Cherries chief Iraola also has a goalkeeping decision to make, after Mark Travers impressed when given a rare runout at Molineux on Wednesday.

Roberto De Zerbi is expected to ring the changes on Sunday with a view to sparking his side back into life.

Bournemouth: Travers; Smith, Zabarnyi, Senesi, Kelly; Christie, Cook; Semenyo, Kluivert, Scott; Solanke

Brighton: Verbruggen; Veltman, Van Hecke, Dunk, Barco; Gross, Baleba; Adingra, Enciso, Fati; Welbeck

Anything else catch the eye? Dunk worth a dabble

Given that Lewis Dunk will be tasked with trying to keep Dominic Solanke quiet on Sunday, the 5/6 on PaddyPower about the Brighton skipper committing one or more fouls looks worthy of consideration.

The Seagulls centre-half has been reprimanded by the referee in five of his last six Premier League outings and he looks a value price to fall foul off the official again on Sunday.
