In their last 11 matches, Bournemouth have played sides in the top six, seven times, and lost all. They are coming from two outings they will want to quickly forget about, having picked a 4 – 1 loss to Manchester United and a 5 – 0 loss to Tottenham Hotspur. The next run of four matches are in winnable category for Bournemouth and they will want to go for the kill to cushion themselves though they will have to be cautious of this Watford side that recently beat Chelsea, before being forced to a draw by Newcastle United. Just like Watford, Bournemouth have managed one clean sheet in the last five matches but while Bournemouth have managed three points from a possible 15 in the last five matches, Watford have picked eight, and will thus be favorites heading to this clash and having scored in each of the last six matches, they will pose a real threat to Bournemouth, who have just one clean sheet in the last 12 matches. Bournemouth have managed six points in their last five home league games and have scored in four of those, while Watford have five points from their last five away matches in the league and failed to score in two of those while keeping just one clean sheet. Four of the last five meetings between the two sides have produced over 2.5 goals while seven of the last 10 have ended in draws. In 16 meetings, Bournemouth have three wins and Watford six.
