Burnley vs. Bournemouth Match Analysis and Prediction

Burnley and Bournemouth have a golden chance to renew their hostilities this week in the fifth round of the FA Cup clash. The match schedules for Tuesday at Turf Moor with kickoff at 830 pm.

Burnley head into the clash following their 1-1 draw against Brighton in their relegation battles. On the other hand, the visitors began their life without Jason Tindall in the dugout in optimal fashion with an impressive 3-2 win over Birmingham City with Jonathan Woodgate at the helm.

Brighton recorded wins over Tottenham and Liverpool before their journey to Burnley. Therefore, a point for the Clarets in that fixture is not the worst result on paper by any stretch. However, Sean Dyche felt a bit disappointed after sharing their spoils following a dominant first-half display.

Despite failing to win any of their last three matches in the top flight, the 17th placed Burnley are eight points off the bottom three after their 22 outings and fixtures against Crystal Palace. In the coming weeks, Fulham and West Brom are certainly more welcoming than their first few matches of 2021.

A section of Bournemouth’s fanbase did not take the sacking of Jason Tindall quite well. However, it was a great sighting as they saw Jason Woodgate start on a winning trend over Birmingham over the weekend. Jack Wilshere continued his impressive start for the Cherries.
