Bournemouth vs Huddersfield Stats
On current form across all competitions Bournemouth are not so bad though. From the last 10 games they managed 6W, 2D, 2L. Callum Wilson has been their go to guy being involved directly in 11 Premier League goals (7goals, 4 assists). The new England international will try everything to keep his good form and impress national coach Gareth Barry. Big money signing Jefferson Lerma will be back in the team after serving 1 game suspension in the previous round.
Bournemouth are a side full with experience as they have in their ranks Asmir Begovic and Jermain Defoe. The terriers from Huddersfield have the worst attack in the league managing to hit the target just 9 times in 14 rounds. The curious side is that their strikers are still to find the net, as all the goals scored came from midfielders or defenders.
