The hosts are the only English club still playing in Europe, but their focus now will be to maintain their top-four place. With Tottenham breathing down their neck, they can’t afford a loss here. Bournemouth is a tricky opponent, and I am putting my money on the goals market.

  • Aston Villa have scored over 2.5 goals in 9 of their last 12 matches (Premier League)
  • In 6 of their last 7 home matches, Aston Villa have returned over 2.5 goals (Premier League)
  • Bournemouth have seen at least 3 goals in 5 of their last 6 matches (Premier League)
  • Bournemouth have conceded at least 2 goals in 3 of their last 4 away matches (Premier League)

Head to Head


Villa and Bournemouth have played each other only 12 times in all competitions. Of these, there have been five wins each, with the remaining two games ending in a draw.

When the sides met earlier in the season, it ended in an entertaining 2-2 draw. Antoine Semenyo and Dominic Solanke scored for the Cherries, while Leon Bailey and Ollie Watkins saved the day for Villa.

Aston Villa Form


Villa defeated Lille via penalties in the midweek to make it to the Conference League semi-finals. In the league, they are fourth in the standings with 63 points from 33 matches.

They are three points ahead of Tottenham, having played a game extra, and boasting a marginally higher goal difference. Villa have won their last league game 2-0 against Arsenal, but it was only their second win in six Premier League matches.

The visitors haven’t quite excelled at home recently, losing three of their last six Premier League matches here. They have scored at least two goals in three of the last four games.

Aston Villa Team News


Douglas Luiz remains suspended, while Villa remains without their long-term absentees Boubacar Kamara, Emi Buendia, and Tyrone Mings, along with Jacob Ramsey.

Bournemouth Form


Bournemouth are 13th in the standings with 42 points from 32 matches. They have no threat of relegation, but hopes of pushing for a top-half finish are still bright.

The Cherries drew 2-2 with Manchester United in a game where they conceded a contentious penalty. It was preceded by a 2-1 loss to Luton, but Bournemouth still have happy memories of four wins in five matches played in March and the start of April.

Away from home, Bournemouth have lost three of their last six away league games, winning only once.

Bournemouth Team News


Bournemouth are set to be without Ryan Fredericks, Luis Sinisterra, and Marcus Tavernier for this match. Antoine Semenyo and Tyler Adams are also likely to be sidelined.
