          Bournemouth vs. Burnley Prediction, Tips & Stats

          We have a huge game in the Premier League on Saturday afternoon as Bournemouth face Burnley with both sides in dire need of a win.

          Bournemouth currently sit 19th in the Premier League with three draws and six losses from nine games so far this season.

          It's been a pretty nightmarish start to the season for a Cherries side that are one of only two still without a win in the league this season.

          It was expected by many that Bournemouth would go up a gear under new manager Andoni Iraola this season, a man who was highly coveted around Europe following the excellent job he did in Spain with Ray Vallecano. However, things have not gone to plan so far with Iraola reportedly hanging on to his job by a thread if this week's rumours are to be believed which means this game could effectively make or break his entire Bournemouth career.

          They're coming into this one completely out of form, winless in their last five games having lost their last four on the bounce.

          There was a point when Bournemouth could be afforded some slack due to a tough start but their last two games have seen them fall to a 3-0 hammering away at Everton before succumbing to a 1-2 defeat at home to Wolverhampton Wanderers last time out.

          They weren't helped by a red card to Lewis Cook with the scores still at 1-1, but losing at home to a side tipped by many to struggle this season will set off alarm bells in Bournemouth's current predicament regardless of the circumstances and it's no surprise that there were wide reports in the aftermath claiming Iraola is now on the verge of losing his job.

          Despite that it seems likely that the Spaniard will keep his job until the weekend at least but defeat here will almost certainly spell the end of his tenure on the South Coast of England. No pressure, then.

          Burnley currently sit 18th in the Premier League with one win, one draw and seven losses from nine games so far this season.

          Like their opponents, Burnley's start to life back in the Premier league is less than ideal with the Clarets having looked out of their depth at points with their only win of the season coming against fellow newly promoted side Luton Town.

          They're coming into this game having lost four of their last five league games, the most recent of which was a 3-0 hammering away at Brentford.

          The loss at Brentford was their second defeat on the bounce and means they've now lost their last two league games by a combined scoreline of 7-1.

          Of the three newly promoted sides Burnley were the only ones almost unanimously expected to stay up but they've been well short of those expectations and their goal difference of -16 is the second worst in the Premier League.

          While Vincent Kompany job is not in as precarious a position as Andoni Iraola's is Burnley need this win just as much as Bournemouth because if their losing streak continues throughout November it's going to become much harder to drag themselves out of the mire from a mental standpoint.

          For our Bournemouth vs. Burnley prediction, we're going for a 1-1 draw.
