Bournemouth vs Leeds United match preview

It’s been a mixed week for Bournemouth, but a victory here would all but ensure that, against the odds, they’ll be playing in the Premier League next season.

Last Sunday, the Cherries were smashed 4-0 by West Ham, suffering their biggest home defeat since December 2018.

However, on Thursday night, Gary O’Neil’s team took a gigantic step towards survival, beating South Coast rivals Southampton 1-0 at St Mary’s.

Matías Viña had an early goal ruled out by VAR for offside, but the winner did come after the break when Marcus Tavernier cut in on his left foot and found the far corner.

Bournemouth have now won five of their last eight, form which has seen them surge up to 14th, seven points clear of the bottom three.

While this would not quite mathematically be the case, another win here would surely secure safety.

The same cannot be said off Leeds United as they kick off two places and six points worse off than their hosts.

Javi Gracia’s team took on relegation rivals Leicester in a crucial game on Tuesday, with the 1-1 final scoreline not satisfying anyone involved.

Luis Sinisterra opened the scoring at Elland Road, but the game will be remembered for Patrick Bamford’s agonising miss in stoppage time.

This point did at least stop the rot, with Leeds have lost three on the spin beforehand, conceding 13 goals.

On the road, the Whites have won just twice all season, defeating Liverpool in October and Wolves last month.

In better news for the travelling supporters, Leeds have won nine of their last ten meetings with Bournemouth, including a frenetic 4-3 victory earlier this season, in which they were 3-1 down.

Will this rematch at Dean Court be equally as dramatic?

Bournemouth team news

Gary O’Neil may be tempted to make changes to his XI, given that they’ve had 48 hours fewer to prepare than their visitors.

The goal scorer Marcus Tavernier hobbled off towards the end at St Mary’s, making him a doubt.

Centre-back Ilya Zabarnyi came off the bench on Thursday, but is yet to make his full-debut for the club.

Dango Ouattara was the match-winner at Tottenham a fortnight ago, but hasn’t been in the starting line-up since.

Right-back Adam Smith is one yellow card away from a two-match suspension.

Predicted XI (4-5-1): Neto; Smith, Senesi, Mepham, Viña; Rothwell, Lerma, Billing, Christie, Ouattara; Solanke.

Leeds United team news

Javi Gracia will be hoping those extra two days of rest can make all the difference.

Just like Bournemouth, Leeds’ mid-week scorer isn’t set to feature after Luis Sinisterra went off with an ankle injury against Leicester.

In his absence, Crysencio Summerville could start out-wide, chosen over out of favour Wilfried Gnonto.

After some nervous performances, Illan Meslier was excellent on Tuesday, making some outstanding saves.

Predicted XI (4-3-3): Meslier; Ayling, Koch, Cooper, Firpo; McKennie, Roca, Summerville, Harrison, Rodrigo; Bamford.
