Southampton make the short trip down to Bournemouth in a Premier League clash on the south coast on Wednesday night.

Bournemouth are sitting pretty in eighth in the table heading into this one, having extended their unbeaten run a game further at the expense of Fulham over the weekend.

The Saints, meanwhile, are struggling and find themselves stuck in the relegation zone ahead of Wednesday, but did hold West Ham to a draw on Saturday to inspire some much-needed confidence among the squad.

Here's everything you need to know.

Bournemouth vs Southampton score prediction

On paper, this is a fixture that should favour Southampton, even with injuries affecting a number of key players.

The gulf in quality between the two squads is evident, but the reality is that Gary O'Neill is getting much more out of his group of players than Hasenhuttl is with his. The Saints are struggling for any kind of coherency or momentum, and face a trip to a side who embody that right now, after a difficult start.

Southampton really need a win here, but they could struggle.

Prediction: Bournemouth 1-0 Southampton
