Burnley face Bournemouth at Turf Moor on Saturday, Sept. 22. Here’s all the info you need to watch.
Burnely are currently tied with Newcastle at the bottom of the table with only one point. After last season’s hot start, Burnley are doing the opposite this season, only drawing Southampton in their first five matches. Granted, they were facing Olympiacos in the Europa League qualification playoff, but this is still a very bad start for the Clarets. They put all of their focus into the Europa League and have nothing to show for it. Perhaps now with their focus on their domestic games they will see a boost in their play.
Bournemouth, in stark contrast to Burnley, are currently sitting fifth in the table with 10 points in five matches. They sit a point above clubs like Tottenham, Arsenal and Manchester United. That is no easy feat. Obviously the Cherries have been one of the best teams to start the season, but is that sustainable throughout the course of a season? Their only loss is to the league leaders, Chelsea. Their streak of good play will likely continue as the only team in their next five matches that currently sits in the top half of the table is Watford. If Bournemouth continue to pick up wins, they could become a legitimate contender to earn a Europa League spot.
The Premier League match between Burnley and Bournemouth will be broadcast live on NBC Sports. Live streaming is available on NBC Sports, which you can access with your cable or satellite subscriptions, either online or through the NBC Sports app.
