Bournemouth vs Brentford live stream, Saturday 1 October, 3pm
Gary O’Neil will once again take charge of Bournemouth as they welcome Brentford to the south coast on Saturday.
Whereas Brighton (opens in new tab) used the international break to appoint a successor to Graham Potter in Roberto De Zerbi, Bournemouth (opens in new tab) are still on the lookout for a permanent replacement for Scott Parker. The longer it goes on, the more likely it is that O’Neil will be entrusted with the role on a full-time basis – particularly if the Cherries pick up a positive result here.
The caretaker boss has already succeeded in making Bournemouth harder to play against, overseeing draws with Wolves (opens in new tab) and Newcastle (opens in new tab), plus an impressive come-from-behind victory over Nottingham Forest (opens in new tab). After they were widely written off following Parker’s departure, O’Neil has showed that Bournemouth are far from dead and buried.
Brentford’s matches have been among the most entertaining in the division so far this season. Only the top three of Arsenal (opens in new tab), Manchester City (opens in new tab) and Tottenham (opens in new tab) have scored more goals than Thomas Frank’s side, but only Bournemouth, Nottingham Forest and Leicester (opens in new tab) have conceded more. The Bees could therefore make a clean sheet a priority at the Vitality Stadium this weekend.
Overall, though, Frank will be reasonably pleased with the way his team have begun 2022/23. Brentford go into this game in ninth place, with just two defeats in their first seven outings, as the west London outfit strive to avoid ‘second season syndrome’.
Bournemouth will have to make do without Joe Rothwell, Ben Pearson, David Brooks, Lloyd Kelly and Ryan Fredericks for the visit of the Bees.
Brentford will be unable to call upon the services of Christian Norgaard, while this match will come too soon for Ethan Pinnock as he eyes a return from a knee injury. Elsewhere, summer signing Keane Lewis-Potter is a doubt, but Ivan Toney will be fresh and raring to go after failing to make his England debut in the international break.
Kick-off is at 3pm BST on Saturday 1 October. See below for international broadcast options.

Use a VPN to watch Premier League football from outside your country
If you’re out of the country for a round of Premier League fixtures, then annoyingly your domestic on-demand services won’t work – the broadcaster knows where you are because of your IP address (boo!). You'll be blocked from watching it, which is not ideal if you’ve paid up for a subscription and still want to catch the action without resorting to illegal feeds you’ve found on Reddit.
But assistance is on hand. To get around that, all you have to do is get a Virtual Private Network (VPN), assuming it complies with your broadcaster’s T&Cs. A VPN creates a private connection between your device and t'internet, meaning the service can’t work out where you are and won't automatically block the service you've paid for. All the info going between is entirely encrypted – and that's a result.
There are plenty of good-value options out there, including:
ExpressVPN including a 30-day, money-back guarantee
