Swansea City entertain Bournemouth this weekend, with both sides eager to claim all three points.
Currently, the Swans and the Cherries are two of the Premier League’s most out-of-form teams. Garry Monk’s side have tasted just one victory success in eight league games, whilst Eddie Howe’s troops haven’t won since beating Sunderland 2-0 at home in mid-September – I think it’s fair to say that both sides are in somewhat of a crisis at present.
Bournemouth’s struggle is not too surprising. They are Premier League new boys, and the majority of promoted clubs struggle to adapt to the pace and rigours of the Premier League.
But as for the Swans, their plight has been a shock and a real wake-up call for Monk and co. After starting the season so brightly, Swansea have gone off the boil at a rate of knots. Since beating Manchester United at the end of August, the Swans have only won once since, that came against struggling Aston Villa last month.
Nevertheless, we’re going to focus on Bournemouth, and what kind of a threat they will pose on Saturday. Even though the Championship champions currently occupy a place in the relegation zone, they still have players who are more than capable of troubling the Swans at the Liberty this weekend.
We take a look at three Bournemouth players who Swansea need to watch out for the most tomorrow.
