Match Previews

Match Preview: Norwich City v AFC Bournemouth

17 January 2020

20th faces 19th in Saturday’s Premier League game at Carrow Road as Norwich City host AFC Bournemouth.

Our match preview includes insight on the opposition, a look at the game’s officials, details on a special display taking place before kick-off and more.

The opposition

The Cherries’ season has taken a drastic turn for the worse since September’s 3-1 win over south-coast rivals Southampton saw them rise to third in the league. Eddie Howe’s side then were knocked out of the Carabao Cup at Burton Albion before winning just two of the next 14 league matches.

Surprisingly, those two wins came at home to Manchester United and away to Chelsea, but zero goals scored and nine conceded in the last three league game paints an ugly picture – Bournemouth are now second from bottom with 20 points from 22 games.

One of the games in that poor run was October’s 0-0 draw with Norwich City at Vitality Stadium, when the Canaries kept Bournemouth at bay to earn their first clean sheet and away point of the season.

Much like City earlier in the season, Bournemouth have been plagued by a significant number of injuries in recent weeks, with long-term absentee David Brooks a big loss following his fantastic form at the start of 2018-19.

Saturday’s game is one both sides will be desperate to win in the hope of kick-starting a climb out of the relegation zone.

Ref watch

Paul Tierney will oversee the fixture and be assisted by Harry Lennard and Marc Perry. Gavin Ward will be the fourth official. Jonathan Moss and Gary Beswick are overseeing VAR.

Tierney has refereed 22 games so far this season across the Premier League, Europa League, FA Cup, Carabao Cup and Championship, handing out 72 yellow cards and one red in those fixtures.

He was last appointed to officiate a Norwich game for our 2-2 draw at home to Arsenal in December. Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang scored both goals for the Gunners on the day.

Match Reports

Pukki penalty helps City to vital victory

18 January 2020

Teemu Pukki's first-half penalty was enough to hand Norwich City a vital 1-0 win over AFC Bournemouth.

Steve Cook's acrobatic handball blocked debutant Ondrej Duda's effort from going in and it was an offence which the Bournemouth captain saw red for - Pukki rolled home the spot kick on 33 minutes to hand City the lead at the interval.

City had plenty of chances to extend their advantage in the second-half but came up against an inspired Aaron Ramsdale in the Cherries' goal. Ben Godfrey saw red for a late tackle on Callum Wilson with 15 minutes to play but it didn't alter the scoreline as City picked up a crucial victory.

Daniel Farke made three changes to the side which lost at Manchester United last weekend, with Ben Godfrey and Teemu Pukki making their returns from injury. Ondrej Duda was handed his first start, with fellow newbie Lukas Rupp on the bench.

Bournemouth created the first chance on 2 minutes during a cagey start by both sides. Ryan Fraser’s cross was flicked towards goal by the head of Callum Wilson but the effort was straight at Tim Krul.

City began to get into their rhythm after that but had to be patient against a well-organised Cherries back four. At the other end, Phillip Billing fired a long-range effort over on 10 minutes.

On 15 minutes, City threatened to open the scoring when Max Aarons’ crossed into a crowded penalty area but Emi Buendia’s header went narrowly wide.

City continued to look the likelier scorers but Bournemouth were allowing little room in the final third for Canary playmakers to create. They were restricted to pop shots from distance, one of them being Alex Tettey’s low drive which flew past the post on 26 minutes.

After a relatively slow start, the game sparked into life ten minutes before the break. Aaron Ramsdale rushed off his line to clear but the loose ball fell to Duda who curled a strike destined for the net, however defender Steve Cook flung an arm to tip the ball onto the post. The Bournemouth skipper was sent off and Pukki lashed the resulting penalty home to give the Canaries a deserved advantage.

Shortly after the restart, Buendia took aim from distance but he didn't go close to breaking his Premier League duck as his effort sailed over.

City continued to dominate the ball but had to wary of their opponents on the counter attack and at set-pieces. Ryan Fraser's corner on the hour mark caused havoc in the City penalty area but Godfrey did superbly to block a goalbound Nathan Ake effort from close range.

Minutes after Callum Wilson fluffed his lines from a Fraser cross, Pukki should have added to his tally. Buendia threaded a ball through the Bournemouth backline and Pukki raced onto it, however Ramsdale did well to smother the ball low to his left.

On 72 minutes, Duda poked the ball towards goal after being picked out by a low Aarons cross but once again, Ramsdale was their to keep City's advantage to just one.

Minutes later, it became ten versus ten as Ben Godfrey was shown a red card for a late challenge on Wilson. He was initially shown a yellow by referee Paul Tierney but the card was upgraded to a red after Tierney watched the incident back on the VAR monitor at the side of the pitch.

Bournemouth stepped up their intensity late on in their search for an equaliser and Ake forced Krul into a super reflex save on 80 minutes.

But City did well to make their way through a nervy closing period to see out the win for three points.
