Aston Villa will be looking to be four matches unbeaten in the league when they host relegation-threatened Bournemouth on Saturday at Villa Park from 15:00 GMT.
Villa’s winning sequence was halted last weekend when they were held to a 1-1 draw away to West Ham. Unai Emery’s men will be looking to bounce back to winning form against Bournemouth and, in the process, compound the visitors’ relegation worries.
Bournemouth impressively dispatched Liverpool 1-0 last weekend to ease their relegation worries. However, they are still 18th on the table and will need to win against Aston Villa to bolster their survival chances.
Unai Emery will be buoyed by his players’ availability ahead of Bournemouth’s visit on Saturday. He will pick the strongest team to extend their unbeaten run to four matches.
Bournemouth also have no fresh injury worries. David Brooks was on the bench in the win over Liverpool and will continue his come-back and integration into the team this weekend at Villa Park.
Aston Villa will seek to dominate the game, force Bournemouth to defend deep, boss possession, and create the bulk of the chances.
Bournemouth will not be conservative. They will have to attack Villa and create chances if they are to take anything from this clash.
Aston Villa will extend their unbeaten run with a win over Bournemouth.
