Worth mentioning: Cardiff were about to record seven game streak where only one of the teams was able to score, until Mendez-Laing scored deep into added time in the midweek game at Arsenal. Just three of these games featured over 2,5 goals. The Bluebirds have scored just four goals in their last five home games, while conceding nine. Bournemouth were on a run of five games without a win prior to their triumph against West Ham, but now they have recorded back-to-back victories garnered with clean sheets. The Cherries are on a poor run away from home, having lost all of the last seven visits.
