Our football match prediction:
West Bromwich Albion will be looking to extend their unbeaten run in the Premier League to five games when they square off against Bournemouth at the Hawthorns on Saturday afternoon. The Baggies aim to retain their spot in top ten and seeing that the Cherries have been totally out of form in 2017, we predict that Tony Pulis’ troops will record their fourth consecutive win at home in the national championship. Bournemouth were producing fine performances in the first half of the season, but, all of the sudden, the team suffered a dip in form and they are on a three-game losing run in the league ahead of the trip to West Bromwich. Eddie Howe’s team conceded nine goals in previous two away fixtures in the Premier League and considering that key attacker Callum Wilson remains in the recovery room, we predict that the hosts will emerge triumphant in Saturday’s football game.
Highlighted Player (Evans):
Originating from Belfast, Jonny Evans is one of the most famous football players from the new generation of the Northern Ireland national team, although numerous injuries prevented the centre-back from showing all he’s got. Coming through the famous Manchester United youth academy, Evans was promoted to the senior set up by club icon Sir Alex Ferguson and he would go on to lift four Premier League trophies with the Red Devils, making over 130 league appearances for the club before moving to West Bromwich Albion in 2015. During his time at Old Trafford, the defender usually played back up to Nemanja Vidic and Rio Ferdinand, but made quite a few appearances in important games, including 31 Champions League outings. As soon as he was given a chance to impress at Manchester United, Evans was called to the Northern Ireland national team and he has made over 40 appearances on international stage since 2006, helping his country qualify for the Euro 2016 finals.
Highlighted Team (Bournemouth):
Bournemouth are a professional football club that was formed back in 1890. The Cherries secured promotion to the Premier League in the 2015/2016 season, with the team making it to the English top flight for the first time ever. Bournemouth play their home games at Dean Court and the capacity of the stadium is 11,469. The Cherries enjoyed a very successful season on their Premier League debut, with the team beating the likes of Chelsea and Manchester United in the national championship. Glenn Murray scored the winner for Bournemouth in the 1-0 win over the capital club at Stamford Bridge and that is probably the greatest victory in the club’s history. Bournemouth have been participating in the FA Cup since 1913, but they have yet to win the trophy in the prestigious competition. It has to be noted that the club’s original name Boscombe Athletic Football Club was changed to Bournemouth back in 1923 as the club owners wanted the Cherries to be more representative of the district.
