  • 3 PL wins in 4 for Bournemouth
  • Wilson bags hat trick, first PL goals since Jan. 3
  • Huddersfield without a away goal since opening day

10-man Bournemouth hammered Huddersfield Town 4-0 on Saturday at the Vitality Stadium as the Cherries played the entire second half without their captain Simon Francis.

Injury-plagued Callum Wilson scored a hat trick and Harry Arter added another as Eddie Howe‘s continue their rise up the table, while Huddersfield’s poor away form continues with no wins or goals away from home since their opening day win at Crystal Palace.

David Wagner‘s men had 70 percent of the possession and 20 shots but couldn’t find a way past Asmir Begovic on the South Coast.

With the win Bournemouth rise to 13th place in the table on 13 points, while Huddersfield stay in 10th place on 15 points.

The Cherries did most of the pressing early on but hardly threatened Huddersfield who hung on until midway through the first half.

Wilson then struck twice in a five-minute period, with his first Premier League goals of the season following his recovery from another long injury layoff.

His first (his first PL goal since Jan. 3) came from a corner as he flicked home a header after beating Aaron Mooy in the air. Huddersfield’s Florent Hadergjonaj was off the pitch during that corner after a heavy tackle which will sure to have angered David Wagner.

Wilson then made it 2-0 soon after and Wagner will have been unhappy with his defense as a free kick caught out the Terriers who were looking for offside and the English striker finsihed superbly to double his and Bournemouth’s tally.

Despite their two-goal lead, right on half time Bournemouth’s skipper Francis was sent off for a second yellow card after his late tackle on Rajiv Van la Parra as the Cherries faced the daunting prospect of playing the entire second half with 10 men.

Huddersfield threw everything at the hosts in their quest to get back into the game with Tom Ince denied by a wonderful block from Adam Smith, but the Terriers were vulnerable on the break and that’s how Bournemouth grabbed their third goal of the game.

Arter caught Scott Malone in possession and drilled home to give the Cherries all three points, a 3-0 lead and sealed a third Premier League win in their last four games.

And to put a bow on a fine display, Wilson completed is hat trick after great hold up play from Josh King. 4-0. Job done.

  • Rajiv Van la Parra scores stunner
  • Schindler sent off in 57th minute
  • West Brom without a PL win since August

Huddersfield Town secured back-to-back home wins in top-flight for the first time since 1971 as David Wagner‘s men battled to a 1-0 victory against West Bromwich Albion on Saturday.

Rajiv Van La Parra’s goal proved to be the difference for a Terriers side who had Christopher Schindler sent off early in the second half but goalkeeper Jonas Lossl came up big late on to secure all three points.

With the win Huddersfield move on to 15 points for the season and into the top 10, while West Brom are just two points off the relegation zone.

West Brom looked dangerous from set pieces early and Ahmed Hegazi almost got on the end of a corner but Huddersfield cleared.

Huddersfield responded well and Aaron Mooy‘s corner reached the back post but Christopher Schindler’s effort was off target.

Tom Ince then forced Ben Foster into a save with a low effort as the Terriers continued to press. From another Mooy corner the ball dropped to Ince but he smashed his shot over the bar under pressure from Kieran Gibbs.

Just before half time a magical moment arrived as Van La Parra picked up the ball 30 yards from goal, then sent a dipping, curling effort into the top corner to send the John Smith’s Stadium wild.

Huddersfield were dealt a huge blow in the second half as Schnidler was shown a second yellow card (his first yellow came in the first half for blocking off Hal Robson-Kanu) for a reckless tackle on Hegazi. The Terries were down to 10-men for the final 35 minutes.

The home side handled the challenge of going down to 10-men well but West Brom sent on plenty of attackers to try and grab a point. Salomon Rondon flicked a header just wide of the near post as Huddersfield had to batten down the hatches late on.

There were some tough moments for Huddersfield late on with goalkeeper Lossl coming up with several big saves as the Terriers fans, as always, created a great atmosphere to help drag their team through.

What a gutsy win from the newly-promoted team.

Anthony Martial collected an early yellow card for United, and a clever move from Tom Ince to Steve Mounie called up Red Devils backstop David De Gea for his first collection of the match.

And Mooy put Town a head when he played Ince in for a shot, then put the rebound behind De Gea.

The keeper wouldn’t be relieved when a Jonas Lossl goal kick sailed over Victor Lindelof‘s jumping intervention, and Depoitretw danced around De Gea to make it 2-0.

Nemanja Matic‘s stoppage time effort through traffic almost pulled one back for United, but Town dealt with a corner kick to get to the break unscathed.

Stephen Ward nearly found Chris Wood for Burnley’s opener, but unsung Town hero Christopher Schindler continued his fine start to life in the Premier League with a big intervention.

The second half provided a first bit of danger for either goalkeeper as Nick Pope had to stop Laurent Depoitre‘s bid at a goal scoring streak when Tom Ince set the table.

Aaron Mooy found Ince for a chance of his own, but the shot zipped wide of goal.

Rajiv Van la Parra tried to claim a penalty for Huddersfield Town, but instead went into the book for diving.
