With such huge stars in the side, Burnley should be able to finish chances if they can create them; however Bournemouth have a great record of containing quality players. It would be wise for Burnley to play intricately and avoid taking too many shooting chances at range, as Bournemouth have an excellent record of defending those chances. If Bournemouth continue their solid defensive performance, they should be able to stop a lot of chances as they develop for their opponents. Burnley will need to be creative with their attacking chances, as Bournemouth are good at defending attacking through balls. Burnley will hope that Bournemouth attack wide so they can prevent danger with their superior defence on the wings.
