    Norwich heading for fourth straight loss at Bournemouth

    Bournemouth welcome Norwich City to the Vitaly Stadium on Saturday as both sides look to bounce back from defeats in the previous round.

    The Cherries come into this match on the back of a 1-0 loss away at Arsenal, while the Canaries were hammered 5-1 by Aston Villa last time out.

    This was Norwich’s third consecutive defeat in the Premier League and their sixth defeat in 8 league games this season.

    Despite picking up impressive wins over Manchester City and Newcastle United, Daniel Farke’s men have struggled for consistency since returning to the top-flight.

    They have scored more goals than 8 of the 20 Premier League sides this season, but have the worst defensive record in the division, having conceded 21 goals so far (an average of over 2.5 goals per game).

    Teemu Pukki has scored 6 goals and registered 2 assists in the league this season, but the Finnish striker has failed to score in the Canaries’ previous 3 league outings.

    Callum Wilson is Bournemouth’s top scorer with 5 league goals to his name this campaign. He will be looking to continue his fine goal-scoring form against a weak Norwich defense.

    The Cherries have been involved in a whopping 26 goals this term. They have scored 13 but have also conceded 13. Only 4 Premier League clubs have conceded more goals than Bournemouth this season.

    However, they have picked up vital wins against Aston Villa, Everton and Southampton so far and will be confident of picking up their fourth league win of the campaign when Norwich come to town.

    The two teams have played against each other 57 times previously, but this will be just the third match between Norwich and Bournemouth in the top-flight of English football.

    Both teams picked up a win in the 2015/16 campaign, with the winning team scoring 3 goals on both occasions.

    Bournemouth are the favorites heading into this match. Norwich are going through a tough spell, which has seen their injury list continue to grow.

    6 of Bournemouth’s 8 league matches this term have produced over 2.5 goals, so another high scoring encounter is expected on Saturday.

    Forebet predicts that Bournemouth will again score over 2.5 goals on their way to victory over Norwich.
