THE PREDICTION

Bournemouth will be looking to get off to a good start in their bid to make an immediate return to the Premier League, but may struggle here against Blackburn. The Cherries have lost many key players already in the transfer window such as keeper Aaron Ramsdale and striker Callum Wilson. Many relegated clubs struggle to adapt to the league initially and the same could happen here to Bournemouth. Blackburn have a settled side, are tough campaigners under Tony Mowbray and have all the capabilities to come out of this match with a well-earned point following a draw.
