Bournemouth vs Wolves live stream, Wednesday 31 August, 7.30pm
Bournemouth will be looking to bounce back from their record-equalling defeat by Liverpool on Saturday when they take on Wolves in the midweek round of Premier League fixtures.
That 9-0 shellacking by Jurgen Klopp’s side at the weekend proved to be Scott Parker’s last match in charge. Bournemouth (opens in new tab) dismissed the ex-England international on Tuesday, handing the managerial reins to Gary O’Neil on an interim basis.
Parker appears to have been dismissed in large part due to his implicit criticisms of the club’s recruitment policy, which continued after the defeat at Anfield. Sean Dyche is the early favourite to succeed him permanently, but in the meantime Bournemouth will be looking to end a run of three consecutive losses.
Wolves (opens in new tab) looked set to register their first victory of the season on Sunday, but Allan Saint-Maximin’s stunning volley in the 90th minute earned Newcastle (opens in new tab) a point at Molineux. It was a frustrating end to the game for Bruno Lage’s side, but a 1-1 draw was a fair result on the balance of play.
Just as it was last term, Wolves’ main issue so far in 2022/23 is a lack of efficiency in attack. Only West Ham (opens in new tab) have found the back of the net less often than Lage’s men, who are averaging 0.5 goals per game so far.
Bournemouth will welcome back Dominic Solanke to the starting XI after his recent absence through injury. That is a major boost for the Cherries, who have missed their top scorer from last season in their three recent defeats. However, O’Neil will be without David Brooks, Joe Rothwell, Ryan Fredericks, Junior Stanislas and Ben Pearson, while Lloyd Kelly is a doubt.
Wolves will be unable to call upon the services of Chiquinho, while Willy Boly is unlikely to feature as he seeks to secure a move to Nottingham Forest (opens in new tab).
Kick-off is at 7.30pm BST on Wednesday 31 August and is being shown on BT Sport 5 (opens in new tab). 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
