Gary O’Neil has done an incredible job since replacing Scott Parker, winning two and drawing four of his six games in charge of the club and if they avoid defeat against the Saints then they will equal their longest unbeaten run in the Premier League from back in 2018.
Bournemouth have lost just one of their five Premier League home games this season (W2, D2), keeping three clean sheets at home so far, with 75% of their goals conceded at the Vitality Stadium coming in that sole defeat (0-3 vs Arsenal).
Southampton go into the game without a win in their last five Premier League games, but did end the run of four straight defeats with a 1-1 draw at home to West Ham on Saturday. The Saints are the only side without a clean sheet in the Premier League this season and overall, they’ve conceded in their last 16 Premier League games.
