The old cliche for derby matches is that ‘the form book goes out the window’, Bournemouth will be hoping that is not the case when Southampton travel to the Vitality Stadium. Remarkably, since losing 9-0 to Liverpool they are the only team in the league to stay undefeated. Interim manager Gary O’Neil must be given huge credit for this feat but so too should the players. Among others, Dominic Solanke and Phillip Billing have been the stars of a resurgent Cherries side. English striker Solanke has picked up where he left off in the Championship, registering two goals and three assists while Danish midfielder Billing has an impressive three goals and an assist to his name. 13 points from 10 games is an excellent return for a newly promoted team, let alone one that looked so lost earlier this season.
30 miles along the South coast, Southampton are struggling. Currently in the relegation zone on a paltry eight points, the Saints managed to arrest a run of four straight defeats with a draw against West Ham on the weekend but they will need to start picking up wins. Scoring goals is proving difficult for Ralph Hassehutll’s team with the side drawing blanks in three of the last five games. Che Adams leads the charts with four goals so far this season and Joe Aribo has two but no one else has more than one goal. Hassenhutll will hope that the sight of Bournemouth brings the goals out as the last time the two sides met (in a 2021 FA cup clash) the Saints won 3-0.
With Bournemouth looking to root their rivals firmly in the relegation battle, the Bournemouth vs Southampton live stream is sure to be a feisty occasion and well worth watching.
The lineups are:
Bournemouth (Formation 4-2-3-1): 13 Murara Neto, 2 Fredericks, 6 Mepham, 25 Senesi, 15 A Smith, 8 Lerma, 4 L Cook, 10 Christie, 29 Billing, 16 Tavernier, 9 Solanke
Southampton (Formation 4-3-3): 31 Bazunu, 2 Walker-Peters, 6 Caleta-Car, 22 Salisu, 15 Perraud, 8 Ward-Prowse, 3 Maitland-Niles, 24 Elyounoussi, 7 Aribo, 10 Adams, 9 A Armstrong
