Bournemouth starting XI (4-4-2): Neto; Fredericks, Mepham, Senesi, Smith; Christie, Cook, Lerma, Tavernier; Billing, SolankeBench: Travers, Rothwell, Stacey, Stanislas, Pearson, Dembele, Moore, Anthony, ZemuraSouthampton team newsRalph Hasenhuttl will have to do without summer signing Armel Bella-Kotchap, who suffered a disloacted shoulder in the draw with West Ham and faces a period on the sidelines. Tino Livramento continues to work towards a comeback from a long-term knee injury, while Romeo Lavia (thigh) is also expected to miss out once again.
Starting XI (4-2-2-2): Bazunu; Walker-Peters, Caleta-Car, Salisu, Perraud; Ward-Prowse, Elyounoussi; Aribo, S. Armstrong; Adams, A. ArmstrongBench: McCarthy, Lyanco, Maitland-Niles, Mara, Djenepo, Edozie, Diallo, Larios, WalcottOn paper, this is a fixture that should favour Southampton, even with injuries affecting a number of key players. The gulf in quality between the two squads is evident, but the reality is that Gary O'Neill is getting much more out of his group of players than Hasenhuttl is with his. The Saints are struggling for any kind of coherency or momentum, and face a trip to a side who embody that right now, after a difficult start.
SouthamptonSaints have won only three of their last 22 Premier League matches, losing 15 times. It's six defeats in seven league away games for Southampton. They are on a run of 16 Premier League fixtures without a clean sheet, their joint longest since returning to the top flight in 2012. Southampton have conceded 249 Premier League goals since Ralph Hasenhuttl took charge in December 2018 - 30 more than any other club during that period.
Under Gary O'Neil they have proved me wrong every time. Prediction: 2-1Chris Sutton's full predictions v Phoenix singer Thomas MarsMATCH FACTSHead-to-headThe Saints are unbeaten in their last four visits to the Vitality Stadium. The most recent competitive meeting of these sides was last season's FA Cup quarter-final at the Vitality, won 3-0 by the Saints. Southampton have lost five of the last seven Premier League games where they opened the scoring. By contrast, both of Bournemouth's wins under Gary O'Neil came after they conceded the opening goal. AFC BournemouthBournemouth are the Premier League's only unbeaten team since Scott Parker was sacked as their head coach on 27 August, with two wins and four draws.
Saints got an assist off referee Peter Bankes for their first goal and I also agree with Hammers boss David Moyes that his side should have had a penalty. As for Bournemouth, well their first goal against Fulham on Saturday was absolutely superb. Dominic Solanke seems to be brimming with confidence and Philip Billing has emerged as a key player. They are a real threat. Maybe I got a bit brainwashed by what their former boss Scott Parker said earlier in the season, about their team being ill-equipped for the Premier League? At least I got a couple of their results right when he was in charge.
Bournemouth v SouthamptonSouthampton's poor form has added to the scrutiny on Ralph Hasenhuttl's positionTEAM NEWSBen Pearson has a chance of making Bournemouth's matchday squad for the first time following his recovery from a knee injury. Interim head coach Gary O'Neil has no new injury concerns, with Joe Rothwell and Junior Stanislas returning as unused substitutes last weekend. Southampton are without defender Armel Bella-Kotchap, who dislocated his shoulder against West Ham on Sunday.
They can equal the club Premier League record of seven consecutive games unbeaten, set from December 2017 to February 2018. Bournemouth's two victories in their 14 previous Premier League matches on a Wednesday both came against Chelsea. Dominic Solanke is one short of 50 league goals for Bournemouth.
