AFC Bournemouth and Watford go head to head in a fixture from the 22th round
AFC Bournemouth and Watford go head to head in a fixture from the 22th round of the Premier League. In today’s English Premier League predictions we will talk about this match at the Vitality Stadium a little bit more.
What we can say right away is that we have a typical game between two teams in very different shape at the moment. Bournemouth are pretty terrible lately, which is the reason why they are in the relegation zone now. In the same time Watford are also in the relegation zone, but the Hornets are doing an amazing progress since the appointment of the new manager Nigel Pearson.
But let’s start with the hosts. Bournemouth are 18th in the standings with 20 points and they managed to win just one point in their last four matches in the league, which is pretty terrible. At some point the Cherries were in the middle of the table, but their poor form made them sink in the standings.
The manager Eddie Howe is a well respected man in Bournemouth, because he managed to do some great things with the club. But in same time it’s clear that Howe is having trouble in improving his team’s form.
It’s a totally different situation in Watford. The Hornets sacked Quique Sanchez Flores and replaced him with Nigel Pearson, who is doing wonders since his appointment. In their last four games Watford are unbeaten, winning 10 points. This allowed them to move to just 2 points distance from the safe zone.
In our English Premier League predictions we can make the conclusion that Watford are in a much better shape than Bournemouth right now and we shall consider them favourites in this match. Bournemouth are in a serious need of points, but so far they are not leaving an impression that they know how to win them.
