Bournemouth have kept a clean sheet in their last three Premier League matches. This is the first time in which they have achieved this feat.

Bournemouth have only lost one of their last five Premier League outings and have picked up 10 points from a possible 15.

Eddie Howe’s men have scored 11 goals this season from 13 matches - an average of 0.8 goals per game.

Bournemouth require an average of 11.5 chances before breaching the opposition’s net in the Premier League this season.

Charlie Daniels and Asmir Begovic have played every minute of Bournemouth’s Premier League campaign – 1170.

There have been under 2.5 goals scored in 11 of Burnley's last 12 Premier League games.

Burnley have the second lowest average possession in the Premier League this season at 43.3%, while they have the second lowest passing accuracy in the division at 72.2%.

They do fare a lot better when the ball is in the air though as they win an average of 22.9 aerial duels per Premier League game.

Burnley have scored 12 goals in the Premier League this season after 13 matches - and average of 0.9 goals per game.

Alexis Sanchez’s late penalty last Sunday was the first goal that Burnley had conceded in nearly 360 minutes of football.

Sean Dyche’s men have conceded just 10 goals this season - an average of 0.76 goals against per game.

Late last season saw these two sides face off at the Vitality Stadium and it would be the home side who would earn the bragging rights thanks to Josh King’s winner. This goal came moments after Sam Vokes thought he had grabbed a share of the points for Burnley.
