Southampton vs. Bournemouth: Premier League – Match Preview

Southampton and Bournemouth are separated by just goal difference going into Friday’s Premier League fixture.

Moussa Djenepo’s superb solo goal was the difference as Southampton moved above the Blades in the league.

Bournemouth bounced back from consecutive defeats as they eased past a poor Everton.

Callum Wilson scored twice, with Ryan Fraser also among the scorers.
