BOURNEMOUTH VS SWANSEA CITY, VITALITY STADIUM

Bournemouth are unbeaten away in the league in 2016, in five games, and return to the Vitality Stadium where they will hope to build on just four home wins. Swansea, meanwhile, have just three wins on the road and only 14 goals from 14 games. Swansea will hope midfielder Gylfi Sigurdsson can maintain his good recent form; he has scored in six of his last 10 Premier League games.

Villa reveal big losses

LONDON (AP) - Aston Villa's new accounts have revealed losses of US$81 million as the club faces a costly relegation from the Premier League.

In 2014-15, Aston Villa Football Club Limited generated US$160 million in revenue but saw administrative expenses soar by more than 56 percent to US$240 million.

Villa reached the final of the FA Cup last season but finished 17th in the league, narrowly avoiding relegation last May.

Now the former European champions are stranded at the bottom of the Premier League and facing relegation. American owner Randy Lerner is trying to sell the central England club.
