Wolves vs AFC Bournemouth

, KO: 19:30 Apr 24, 2024, Molineux
AFC Bournemouth

BOTH Wolves and Bournemouth will be bidding to return to winning ways in the Premier League when the pair meet at Molineux on Wednesday night.

Gary O'Neil's injury-ravaged hosts go into this game off the back of a 2-0 defeat at home to Arsenal on Saturday night.

That setback has left Wolves occupying 11th place in the table and it also extended their winless run in the Premier League to five matches.

As such, the Old Gold will be hoping they can arrest their slump and get their push for a top half finish back on track by banking three points against Bournemouth.

The Cherries' charge towards the top half of the table has also hit the buffers of late, with the south coast outfit collecting just one point from their last three top-flight fixtures.

Last time out, Andoni Iraola's side surrendered a 1-0 lead against Aston Villa to lose 3-1, meaning they make the trip to Molineux housed in 13th spot in the standings.

How the bookies view it: Bournemouth narrow favourites

Despite currently being positioned below Wolves in the Premier League table, Bournemouth are marginal 6/4 favourites on Ladbrokes to claim top honours at Molineux. Wolves return to their Black Country base this midweek as slight outsiders at 13/8 on Bet 365 while the draw can be backed at 27/10 with William Hill.

Recent head to head: Wolves hungry for more success

Wolves emerged from October's reverse fixture at the Vitality with a 2-1 victory and they will be looking to repeat the trick on home turf.

In fact, Wanderers have lost just one of their last seven Premier League meetings with Bournemouth, though the Cherries did come out on top in last season's corresponding fixture.

Players to watch: Solanke gunning for Golden Boot

Bournemouth's Dominic Solanke has been one of the standout players in the Premier League this season and he took his tally for the campaign to 18 when notching during his side's 3-1 defeat at Aston Villa on Sunday. The Cherries talisman is now just two strikes behind both Cole Palmer and Erling Haaland in the race for the Golden Boot and he can be backed at an eye-catching 11/10 on PaddyPower to Score or Assist at Molineux.

Wolves have an extremely busy treatment room right now but boss Gary O'Neil is hoping to welcome back top-scorer Matheus Cunha to the fold. The Brazilian forward has 11 top-flight strikes to his name this term and is priced up at 15/8 on PaddyPower to mark his potential return from injury with a goal.

Predicted line-ups

Wolves are operating with a threadbare squad at present and will therefore be forced to field another patched up starting XI on Wednesday night. Bournemouth's Adam Smith was hooked at half-time on Sunday so his replacement Max Aarons could be given the nod at Molineux.

Wolves: Sa; S. Bueno, Toti, Kilman; Doherty, Lemina, Gomes, Doyle, H. Bueno; Sarabia, Hwang

Bournemouth: Neto; Aarons, Zabarnyi, Senesi, Kelly; Christie, Cook; Semenyo, Scott, Kluivert; Solanke

Anything else catch the eye? Goals on the menu at Molineux

Wolves fired a rare blank at home to Arsenal on Saturday but they can rediscover their scoring touch against a Bournemouth team who have failed to keep a clean sheet in 13 of their 16 Premier League away games this season.

However, the Cherries, who have a considerable ace up their sleeve in the form of Golden Boot contender Dominic Solanke, have failed to land a blow in just one of their 16 top-flight road trips this term to date.

With that in mind, there is plenty of scope for a goal-heavy game at Molineux, with Both Teams to Score and Over 2.5 Goals appealing at 5/6 on Ladbrokes.

This combination has clicked in six of Bournemouth's last seven Premier League matches, not to mention the same play would have also proven profitable in 11 of the visitors' 16 league games away from home this season so far.

This match between Wolves and AFC Bournemouth will be played on Apr 24, 2024 and kick off at 19:30. Check below for our tipsters best Wolves vs AFC Bournemouth prediction. You may also visit our dedicated betting previews section for the most up to date previews.
