​Bournemouth host Wolves in the Premier League on Saturday, with both teams sniffing around the Europa League places in ninth and eighth respectively.


The Cherries are having a typically good season, but results continue to be up and down week after week. One minute they're beating Manchester United, the next they're losing to Newcastle.

​Bournemouth are coming off the back of a loss, but their last few games have been a mixed bag of results. Eddie Howe will be demanding some more consistency from his side. 


Wolves, on the other hand, have just lost once in their last 12 games, and are going through a mini-revival as they surge up the table.


Here are both sides' recent results:

Prediction

Eddie Howe

​As seen by their league positions, both teams are pretty evenly matched. However, Wolves probably do have a little more quality than their opposition, but the Cherries' home advantage could cancel that out. As a result, a draw seems likely between the two sides.


Prediction: Bournemouth 2-2 Wolves
