Burnley vs Bournemouth: Match details
Match: Burnley vs Bournemouth
Competition: FA Cup
Date: February 9, 2021
Kick-off time: 5:30 pm, February 9, 2021 (UK time)
Stadium: Turf Moor
Betting prediction: Burnley 1-1 Bournemouth
Burnley and Bournemouth could cancel each other out here. The Clarets’ impotence in front of goal could rear its ugly head yet again here despite playing a Bournemouth-side that have been in poor form of late. The onus should be on Sean Dyche to push for a result given Burnley’s comparable status, but an inability to create may hold them back once more.
Burnley vs Bournemouth: Recommended bets
Full-Time Result: Draw
More often than not, a Premier League-side squaring off against an opponent from the Championship has an expected result that is assumed to end in favor of the bigger side. But Burnley really do struggle in the final third, and given the fact that Bournemouth do have a handful of attacking players who can cause them a few headaches, it’s unclear how both managers will approach this. A draw is a real possibility.
Winning Margin: Scoring Draw
It likely won’t be a shootout by any means, but the nature of cup competitions lends weight to the notion that – at some point – both sides will have to find a goal somewhere, even if neither are good enough to be well and truly clear of their opponent.

Burnley vs Bournemouth: Match preview
It was not pretty, but Burnley’s 1-1 draw against an in-form Brighton was a decent result for a club and a manager in Sean Dyche that will take what they can get at the minute. Fulham’s 0-0 affair at Craven Cottage against West Ham meant the Clarets remain eight points clear of the drop zone. But the same old story persists for Dyche; a lack of goals.
A spirited display from Czech international Matej Vydra in a rare start (he’s been in the matchday XI in Burnley’s last-two Premier League fixtures) showed that an in-house solution at Turf Moor could be found. His performance against Brighton was well-received and led Match of the Day pundit Dion Dublin to claim that it was “down to Vydra” regarding the lion’s share of Burnley’s second-half attacking display coming from play running through the Chotebor-native.
While Vydra could provide a much-needed attacking outlet to help Burnley out of a difficult reality, one player is never enough. The overall solution for Burnley needs to come from the man on the touchline. There are still other attacking players at the club that have something to offer which can aid the Clarets in becoming more of a threat in the final third than in their current iteration.
It is very hard to be more than the sum of your parts, or more simply, something you are not. But in that light, it is important to be the best possible version of what you are, and this is where Burnley fall short of the mark. A more polished variant of what is on offer at the minute is likely achieving on a better scale than 17th in the Premier League, with every chance of crashing out of the FA Cup against lesser opposition. Still and yet, Burnley will still back themselves to have enough in the tank for a deep run in England’s premier cup competition.
Instant turn of fortune under Jonathan Woodgate for Bournemouth?
Things started brilliantly for Bournemouth back in the Championship after they failed to avoid the drop last term. But the south coast outfit’s run of form at the turn of the new year hit a brick wall, seeing them register just one win (and one draw) in six.
The abrupt halt to their momentum would bring Jason Tindall’s long-standing connection to the Cherries to a heartbreaking conclusion, after being both a player and on the coaching staff for over a combined twenty-plus years. Shocked at his surprise appointment as caretaker, the former England international registered a three-point haul in his first match in charge against Sheffield Wednesday on Saturday, bringing a much-needed end (albeit potentially temporary) to Bournemouth’s dip in form.
For a club keen to get back to the Premier League as quickly as possible, Woodgate will be at the head of a difficult task compared to the nature of his arrival on Tindall’s staff earlier in the season. On the surface, Bournemouth are still capable of turning it around and re-cementing themselves in the promotion discussion. Second in the Championship in goals, while sitting sixth in the goals allowed table, any dip in form was likely to be temporary, even if the nature of their current one went on far longer than many thought possible.
The task for Woodgate, though difficult on the whole, can be simply boiled down to getting the Cherries back to what made them so effective for the vast majority of the 2020-21 campaign overall. Bournemouth are top five in the Championship for ball possession (56%), shots generated (13/90min), and passing accuracy (79%). They are, in fact, a fairly capable side, but their recent poor run saw them struggle to be consistent in the final third, especially against Luton Town and Derby County. Getting them back to an even keel should be the first – and maybe only – order of the day for Woodgate, and if he can do that, not only may he be able to perpetrate an upset against Burnley, but propel them back into the Premier League come seasons end.
Burnley team news vs Bournemouth
There are no new injury concerns for Sean Dyche to negotiate going into the midweek cup-clash, with Ashley Barnes returning at the weekend against Brighton as well.
Question marks still surround Robbie Brady, Chris Wood, Charlie Taylor, and Josh Brownhill, though if available, could be rotated into the team.
Bournemouth team news vs Burnley
Interim manager Jonathan Woodgate is afforded a fully-fit squad to choose from on their visit to Turf Moor, with his side coming through unscathed in their 3-2 home win against Birmingham City.
Woodgate could be tempted to keep faith in the same XI that ended the Cherries’ five-match winless run, which would mean both Dominic Solanke and Junior Stanislas would miss-out on the matchday XI.
