BOURNEMOUTH SUB: Josh King receives a standing ovation as he is replaced by Max Gradel for the last couple of minutes.

90' 

Three minutes of added time to play.

87' 

Eddie Howe has seen his team concede so many late goals this season and the Bournemouth manager is determined to keep his players in check as he barks orders from the touch line.

86' 

Swansea are piling men forward in search of a consolation goal but Bournemouth are, for once, looking rather steady at the back.

- 
83' 

A defeat means Swansea remain three points above the drop zone while Bournemouth will move nine points adrift of 18th placed Hull.

SWANSEA SUB: Final change for the visitors - Borja Bastón takes the place of Llorente.

81' 

The hosts have produced a performance to be proud of but it's a really worrying display from Swansea. They seemed to have turned the corner under Paul Clement but this result puts them into a precarious position in the Premier League table.

80' 

The Bournemouth fans are making plenty of noise as we enter the final 10 minutes of the match. The home side have been superb today.

78'

TERRIFIC SAVE! Fabianski pulls off a remarkable save to keep his team in the game! Wilshere gets to the byline and picks out King at the back post but the forward's powerful header is brilliantly thwarted by the Swansea goalkeeper.

- 
77' 

That was Afobe's 49th career goal and boy did he take it well. It could prove to be a turning point in Bournemouth's season.

GOAL! Swansea looked more likely to grab the game's second goal but in fact it's Bournemouth who are celebrating as Afobe doubles the home team's advantage with a really neat finish. King does brilliantly to play his strike partner through and Afobe makes no mistake.

69' 

BLOCK! Swansea come forward once again but a piece of wonderful defending from Cook saves the hosts as he makes a vital interception to deny Routledge from close range.

68' 

And that half chance may just be the wake-up call Swansea needed. They have little over 20 minutes to grab an equaliser.

67' 

CHANCE! Finally Swansea look threatening! Llorente leaps the highest to nod the ball across the face of goal but Bournemouth do well to scramble it clear.

SWANSEA SUB: Wayne Routledge replaces Ki.

65' 

The free-kick comes to nothing and moments later Swansea win a corner but once again Sigurdsson can't pick out a team mate.

63' 

The visitors have offered very little in open play but they do look rather dangerous from set-pieces and just now Sigurdsson has an opportunity to deliver a cross into the penalty area with a free-kick.

62' 

Paul Clement, presumably getting rather desperate now, is preparing to make his second change of the game. The Swans need to get Sigurdsson more invovled in the game as the Icelandic midfielder is their only player with any real quality.

- 
60' 

Narsingh has been on the pitch for five minutes now but he's yet to involve himself in the match. When he finally gets a touch he tries to make a forward run but loses the ball rather easily and makes little effort to win it back.

58' 

Bournemouth are dominating possession at the moment. Their defence, which is often extremely vulnerable, hasn't been tested tonight really. Swansea have been so so poor.

57' 

Fabianski does well to gather a Bournemouth cross and then gifts the ball straight back to the hosts with a disastrous throw. However, Fraser isn't able to punish his mistake as he lets fly from 20 yards but it's straight at the goalkeeper.

56' 

Will Swansea's change enable them to play with a little more creativity?

SWANSEA SUB: Luciano Narsingh replaces Ayew.

52' 

The corner is played short to Fraser who overhits his cross and the chance is gone. Swansea are preparing their first change of the evening and it's much needed. The visitors have been flat.

51'

SAVE! Gosling wins the ball back for Bournemouth and with little other option he shoots from 25 yards, forcing Fabianski into a top class stop. Corner to follow...

50' 

Cork does well to drift past a couple of Bournemouth players but then undoes all his good work by simply gifting possession back to the hosts in midfield.

49' 

Smith goes to ground after he's caught with a late challenge but Bournemouth play on without their full-back who slowly gets back to his feet.

48' 

Another top drawer delivery from Sigurdsson but again none of his team mates can connect to the cross and Bournemouth survive.

47' 

Ayew is too quick for Daniels and out of desperation the Bournemouth player hauls him down. Swansea have a free-kick now and Sigurdsson will deliver the set-piece.

46' 

Swansea have conceded 62 league goals this season, the most in the division, while Bournemouth have conceded an unrivalled 23 Premier League goals in 2017.

  • 2nd Half

Swansea get us underway in the second-half.

It's official, Bournemouth's 31st minute opener will go down as an Allie Mawson own goal.

  • End of 1st Half
HT 

HALF-TIME: Bournemouth 1-0 Swansea.

44' 

There will be little, if any, additional time at the end of the first-half.

- 
42' 

Swansea's frustration continues as Carroll overhits a cross. He had plenty of team mates to choose from there so it's a real waste.

41' 

If Eddie Howe's Bournemouth can hold on to the three points they will put a gap of nine points between themselves and 18th placed Hull.

40' 

Surman and Smith stand over the free-kick and it's the latter who steps up to take it... but he sends it straight into the arms of Fabianski.

39' 

Ki slides in on Fraser and the referee has no choice other than to book the Swansea player. Bournemouth have a chance with a free-kick in a central area, 30 yards out.

38'

STAT: The Cherries have dropped 18 points from winning positions this season, more than any other Premier League side.

36' 

Let's be honest, Sigurdsson is too good to be playing for a club battling relegation.

35'

CLOSE! Sigurdsson nearly catches Boruc out with an ambitious shot from 30 yards out! The ball is destined for the bottom corner but the goalkeeper gets a fingertip to it and Swansea only have a corner as reward.

- 
33' 

Boruc spills a relatively routine cross but the goalkeeper gathers it on the second attempt. As unpredictable as ever then!

- 
32' 

There was more than just a hint of good fortune behind that goal but Afobe and Bournemouth won't care one bit.

GOAL! Bournemouth take the lead and it's Afobe who makes the breakthrough! The forward finds some space just outside the penalty area to take a shot, it takes a wicked deflection and wrongfoots Fabianski.

28' 

STAT: Bournemouth could become the first team to concede two goals or more in seven consecutive Premier League home matches since Wolves set the record of 11 in a row from December 2011 to April 2012.

26' 

Carroll is in the right place to intercept a through ball from Surman which was intended for Afobe and there's still no breakthrough for Bournemouth.

25' 

It's been an entertaining contest thus far but neither side have been able to find the opener. Swansea look most likely at the moment.

24'

SWANSEA PENALTY APPEAL! Pugh handles the ball in the penalty area as he blocks Carroll's cross but the referee, who is well positioned, isn't interested. You've seen them given...

23' 

The Swansea onslaught continues as Sigurdsson sends a teasing ball across the face of goal but Bournemouth do well to survive.

22' 

Sigurdsson's free-kick is whipped in with some pace and Josh King almost turns it into his own net with his head. Fortunately for Bournemouth it's only a corner.

21' 

Smith concedes a cheap free-kick as he stands on the toes of Kingsley. Swansea have a good opportunity now to whip a cross into the penalty area. Sigurdsson to take...

19' 

DID YOU KNOW? Gylfi Sigurdsson has 11 Premier League assists this season - more than any other player - and also leads the way in distance covered (318.2km).

17' 

The away supporters have travelled in great numbers for a long, long trip and they're making plenty of noise at the moment. They're side are doing OK as well.

16' 

Cook does tremendously well to clear from Ayew's teasing cross. Bournemouth's defence has been so poor this season but they've stood up to the challenge in the opening stages today.

13' 

Fraser curls a terrific cross to the back post to find Afobe but the forward is off balance and can't find the target.

12' 

OVER! Llorente does well to tee up Sigurdsson to have a shot but the Icelandic playmaker can't keep his effort down from just outside the penalty area.

11' 

Swansea are passing it around comfortably at the moment. They had a slow start to the game but appear to be settling into the contest now.

- 
9' 

Down at the other end and Fraser fires just wide of the target for Bournemouth. Both sides are trying to play good football this evening and they couldn't have asked for a better surface.

7' 

First sign of attacking intent from Swansea as they win a free-kick which Sigurdsson delivers into a packed penalty area but no one can get their head on it and it goes out for a goal-kick.

6' 

STAT: Eddie Howe's side could win back-to-back league matches for the first time since March 2016, when they claimed three straight victories - including a 3-0 home win against Swansea.

5' 

The corner doesn't come to anything but Eddie Howe will be pleased with his side in the opening five minutes. It's very early but the hosts look like they're in the mood this evening.

4' 

Nice and neat football from Bournemouth as they work the ball wide to Smith who forces the first corner of the match.

3' 

The Cherries have started the game on the front foot and Eddie Howe's side seem to be full of confidence after last week's victory over West Ham.

2' 

Swansea are only three points above the drop zone and they could really do without a defeat here.
