It has been a damaging start to the season for Bournemouth’s new boss Andoni Iraola, and the Cherries will continue their search for a first league win of the season this weekend. The Cherries currently sit in the bottom three places in the league standings, as they are one of just two sides that are yet to pick up a win this term.
Before the international break, they were swatted aside by Everton at Goodison Park, falling to a 3-0 defeat. That loss means that they have failed to pick up maximum points in their opening eight matches for the first time in their Premier League history. They have also picked up just three points, which is their lowest at this stage in top-flight history.
While Bournemouth were happy to cast aside Gary O’Neil in the summer, Wolves were happy to show faith in the former Portsmouth midfielder. The Black Country side have hit form in recent weeks, with their standout victory coming at home against Man City at the end of September.
Wolves are now unbeaten in their last three Premier League matches, with their most recent showing coming at Molineux, as they played out a 1-1 draw against Aston Villa before the international break. A second win in three matches could send them closer to the middle of the standings this weekend.
Bournemouth vs Wolves Prediction
Wolves boast an excellent record in this fixture, as they have won three of the six Premier League meetings between the sides. We could see O’Neil having the final laugh over the Cherries, as the visitors look good value to land maximum points, which could signal the end to the Iraola reign at the Vitality.
