Burnley 6/5 to beat Bournemouth in Sundays Premier League clash

Competition: Premier League

Market: Burnley to beat Bournemouth

Odds: 6/5 @ Bet365

Burnley welcome Bournemouth to Turf Moor on the last day of the Premier League season. Neither side have anything to play for with the Clarets already securing their place in the Europa League whilst the Cherries know they will be playing football in the top flight again next season.

For Sean Dyche’s Burnley side, with Europa League football confirmed for Turf Moor next season, it will undoubtedly be party time for The Clarets. Although Burnley are coming off the back of a 5-0 loss in Arsene Wenger’s final home game at The Emirates, Dyche’s side do boast an impressive home record, something that has been a key part in their record-breaking year. Aside from a 2-1 loss to former Premier League champions Chelsea, The Clarets have only been beaten at Turf Moor once since the middle of January. The hosts will also be looking to carry on their own excellent record against the Cherries, Burnley have only been beaten by Bournemouth once in their last nine meetings.

As for Bournemouth, with Cherries boss Eddie Howe admitting that this has been a disappointing year for the South Coast club, Bournemouth now hold the third worst defensive record in the Premier League and they now know they can not beat their points tally of last season. While The Red and Blacks are coming off the back of a 1-0 win over relegation favorites Swansea last time out, ending their three-match losing run, Howe’s side have struggled for large part on the road this year. Bournemouth have now won just one of their last 14 away matches in all competitions, a run that goes all the way back to November 2017.
