EPL: Bournemouth vs Wolves Live Stream and Match Preview

A dispirited Bournemouth look to bounce back from a record-equalling 9-0 Premier League (PL) defeat against Liverpool as they host Wolves. The thumping loss marked a third consecutive league defeat for the Cherries since beating Aston Villa on matchday one, whilst the four goals they conceded with just 31 minutes on the clock was record-timing for Bournemouth in the PL.

The result appeared to be the deciding factor in the recent sacking of manager Scott Parker, so a leaky Bournemouth backline that has conceded the most goals in the PL this season (16), combined with a blunt-looking attack which has failed to score in three consecutive PL losses, is now real cause for concern. Before he left, the now ex-Bournemouth boss was keen to emphasise that their last three games have been against “world class” opponents in Liverpool, Arsenal and Manchester City, with this a seemingly more ‘winnable’ game.

Wolves are having scoring troubles of their own, although they at least managed to find the net in a 1-1 draw to Newcastle last weekend - after going 302 PL minutes without! The impending acquisition of Stuttgart striker Sasa Kalajdzic should supplement Wolves’ attack, with manager Bruno Lage still waiting to oversee Wolves’ first PL win of the season (D2, L2).

A perilous recent PL away record (D1, L5) indicates that Wolves’ wait for a maiden PL win this season could continue into September, and with all of those games seeing them concede at least one second-half goal, Newcastle’s late equaliser should be a wake up call for Wolves. However, having won three of their four PL H2H clashes (D1), the West Midlands outfit may feel confident of ending that trend against a Bournemouth side who have only netted twice this league campaign.

Players to watch: Bournemouth frontman Kieffer Moore has scored three of his side’s last four league goals - all of them arriving on or beyond the 80th minute. Meanwhile, Wolves’ Rúben Neves’ long-range strike against Newcastle marked the eighth of his 16 PL goals that have come from outside the area.

Hot stat: Bournemouth’s 21 shots from their opening four PL games is the second fewest on record since Sunderland recorded 20 in 2012/13!
