Recent Form

it is remarkable to think how the season has panned out for both of these teams since Bournemouth romped to a 3-0 win over Swansea in December. The Cherries were looking onwards and upwards at that point but they subsequently went eight league games without a win (drawn three, lost five) before finally securing a first victory of 2017 with a 3-2 win over West Ham last weekend.

Bournemouth's slump ensures they start the day just three points above Swansea, who have won five and lost four since their defeat at home to the Cherries. Paul Clement has overseen quite a turnaround and the Swans are 9/4 to win on Saturday (Paddy Power), while the hosts are 5/4 and the draw is 13/5.

Goals Galore

Bournemouth are yet to lose to Swansea in three Premier League meetings but those matches have produced a grand total of twelve goals and there should be great entertainment in this fixture again.

The match bears witness to two woeful defences as Bournemouth have conceded an eye-watering 54 league goals and have gone nine without a clean sheet.

It is at home where Eddie Howe's men have had problems of late as they have gone six without a clean sheet at the Vitality Stadium, conceding at least two goals in each game (fourteen goals in total).

Meanwhile, Swansea have gone thirteen away games without stopping the opposition scoring and they have conceded a dreadful 31 goals on the road - no other team has conceded more.

Both teams to score and over 2.5 goals is a very tempting 'double' here (7/4 with Betfred) as it has paid out in seven of Swansea's past nine league outings and they do seem to guarantee goals.

Josh Is King

Swansea's away matches have seen both teams score in 79% and over 2.5 goals in 77%, which bodes well for Bournemouth's in-form Josh King.

Fresh from a hat-trick in the 3-2 win over West Ham last weekend, King has now scored eight goals in his last seven outings and he has scored in all three Bournemouth v Swansea matches in the Premier League. King is 11/2 to score first (Bet Victor) and enhance his incredible purple patch of form.
