Huddersfield vs Bournemouth predictions: Premier League preview & line-ups

101 Great Goals’ prediction: Huddersfield 1-2 Bournemouth

Bournemouth to win 2-1 at Huddersfield is 7/2 with Paddy Power.

The Terriers have slumped into the league’s bottom three, following a miserable run of form, undoing the majority of their early season efforts.

David Wagner’s side are looking to avoid a sixth successive defeat on Sunday, with recent performances well below par.

Bournemouth continue to enjoy yet another strong campaign in the Premier League, flying high up in ninth after looking strong contenders for the drop.

Having taken ten points from their last five outings, Eddie Howe will be desperate for his side to maintain this strong run of form.

Huddersfield vs Bournemouth preview

Huddersfield are without a win in eight, having lost all five of their last fixtures.

Their worrying form has pulled them right into danger, currently languishing down in 19th, but such is the competitive nature of the bottom-half, just three points separates them for 12th-placed West Ham.

The Cherries have been impressive in recent weeks, moving well clear of the relegation battle.

The South Coast club are coming off the back of a 2-1 win at Stoke, a result which helped them leap above Everton into ninth.

When these two sides met earlier this season at the Vitality Stadium, a Callum Wilson hat-trick saw Bournemouth on their way to a resounding 4-0 win over the Terriers.

Huddersfield: Defensive Woes

Early season optimism has quickly descended into relegation fears, with results really taking a turn for the worse.

The root of Huddersfield’s struggles has been in defence, with 14 goals being shipped past them in their last five.

The West Yorkshire club have looked frail at the back and this is an issue David Wagner must look to address as he looks to get his side back on track.

Bournemouth: League Strugglers to European contenders

Much as it has always been the case with Bournemouth, their rise through the league this season has been remarkable.

Only a few months ago, the Cherries looked very strong contenders to go down, now, they are sat just five points away from a potential European spot.

Eddie Howe has managed to transform his side into a strong force this season following a slow start and a win at the John Smith’s Stadium on Sunday will put them in prime position to pounce on the league’s top seven.
