Bitesize Prediction: Bournemouth vs Sheffield United – 09/03/24

Competition: Premier League

Market: Dominic Solanke to score anytime

Odds: 1/1 @ Pribet

Looking to secure back-to-back Premier League victories, Bournemouth will welcome Sheffield United to the Vitality on Saturday afternoon.

Starting with the hosts, managing to make a welcomed return to winning ways last weekend, Bournemouth will certainly be smelling a golden opportunity here. Eventually clinching a 2-0 victory away at relegation scrappers Burnley, Andoni Iraola’s men finally picked up a first Premier League victory of 2024. Although the Cherries might face a major uphill battle in their bid to book a top-half finish this season, they have largely impressed under the former Rayo Vallecano boss. Rightfully tipped as a standout contender on Saturday afternoon, fans around the Vitality will be calling on attacking talisman Dominic Solanke to spearhead their charge here. Continuing to shine this season and potentially doing enough to earn a spot in Gareth Southgate’s EURO 24 squad for this summer, the one-time Liverpool starlet has already notched 14 Premier League goals so far this season. With only two English players recording more top-flight strikes than the 26-year-old this year, Solanke will be relishing Saturday’s showdown.

As for the visitors, putting in another embarrassing performance earlier in the week as they eventually slumped to a 6-0 drumming at home against Arsenal, Sheffield United find themselves at the heart of a Premier League nightmare. Sat rock-bottom of the table and coming under a huge amount of scrutiny, Chris Wilder’s men are limping their way to an immediate Championship return in 2024. Along with collecting just 13 points from any of their 27 top-flight appearances this year, the Blades have gained a reputation for their glaring defensive issues. In fact, along with respective 5-0 drumming against Brighton and Aston Villa last month, Saturday’s guests have shipped an astonishing 26 goals in just their last seven appearances across all competitions. Likewise, conceding at least five goals in four of those seven meetings against Premier League opposition, Wilder’s side have also shipped 72 top-flight goals so far this season.
