Leeds United v Bournemouth: Premier League Match-day 15
Leeds at home against Bournemouth – Saturday – 3:00pm GMT – Elland Road.
Saturday’s clash at Elland Road- sees fourteenth placed Bournemouth, travel to fifteenth-placed Leeds in the Premier League.
This season’s Premier League campaign, has so far seen Leeds United achieve 12 points
Jesse Marsch will not wish to see his side lose three matches in a row, so they will doubtless go into this match, determined to change their recent, disappointing run of form.
Also, Leeds have now lost six of their last nine games, a worrying statistic that has to be addressed by Manager Jesse Marsch. They currently stand fifteenth in the League, with 12 points for a total of 3 wins, 6 losses and 3 draws having won three meetings, drawn three meetings, and lost six fixtures.
Playing at home, Leeds have won two games, drawn two matches, and lost two games.
A win in this fixture, would take Leeds United’s points from 12 to 15, so far this season.
Leeds’s squad has depth, but even so, Jesse Marsch is likely to be missing four of they key players when they start Saturday’s game.
With the Premier League season well into its stride, Bournemouth have managed to gain 13 points
Having lost to Tottenham Hotspur in their last game, Gary O’Neil’s men must reset and try to gain a positive result in this match.
Also, Bournemouth will be hopeful of shaking off the poor form that has seen them lose three games this Premier League season. With 13 points, they currently sit fourteenth in the League. The breakdown for the team’s record is 3 wins, 6 losses and 4 draws having won three meetings, drawn four fixtures, and lost six games.
It must be a worrying prospect for Bournemouth to go back on the road, with a bud run of away performances under their belt this season. So far they have only secured one victory, two darts, and three losses to the home team.
A win in this fixture would take Bournemouth’s points to 16 in the League.
Gary O’Neil could be missing up to three of their players through injury or illness for the game on Saturday.
