Bournemouth vs Aston Villa Match Preview
Aston Villa will be cock-a-hoop after reaching the Carabao Cup Final this week – but must now ensure they are 100% focused on this Premier League relegation six-pointer.
Dean Smith’s side booked their place at Wembley when Trezeguet’s last-gasp strike settled the semi-final against Leicester seconds before a penalty shootout would have been needed, and now they have a showdown with Manchester City to look forward to on March 1.
But Villa cannot afford that shot at silverware to distract them from trying to maintain their place in the top flight of English football and they go into this game as part of what looks increasingly like a six-club dogfight to avoid the drop.
Bournemouth are also in there, currently occupying a place in the drop zone two points behind Villa in what is certainly their most precarious situation since they were promoted in 2015.
The Cherries have generally been on a poor run of form since November, but they showed what they remain capable of when they won their last home Premier League match 3-1 against Brighton and it’s at their Vitality Stadium where they are most effective.
This is a similar sort of contest to the Brighton one and as Bournemouth still look to have enough quality in their squad to get out of trouble, we are backing them to beat a Villa side who are inconsistent – and have not kept a clean sheet away from home all season.
