PREDICTION
The honeymoon period for Huddersfield in the Premier League is all but a distant memory as the harsh reality of battling to beat the drop is upon them. David Wagner’s men have failed to win any of their last eight league outings and more concerning is the fact that they have lost their last five in a row. This Sunday sees them play host to a Bournemouth side who are flying high after being unbeaten in their last seven while also travelling to Yorkshire off the back of successive wins. With the form that the Cherries are in at present, you would have every right in thinking they can go on and make it three league wins in a row.

MEMORABLE MEETING
The only previous Premier League meeting between these two teams was back in November 2017 and the Vitality Stadium was the venue as Bournemouth made easy work of Huddersfield in front of their own fans. Callum Wilson was the hero that afternoon as his hat-trick meant that not only did the Cherries earn all three points but the forward would go home with the match ball.
