Minute   Description
And there goes the full-time whistle! Bournemouth win 4-0 despite being reduced to 10 men just before half-time, with Wilson scoring a tremendous hat-trick, while Arter tucked away the third. Despite question marks over refereeing decisions for the first two goals, Huddersfield just weren't at it today and Bournemouth were clearly the better side. It finishes 4-0 here at the Vitality Stadium, and Huddersfield go away having been humbled somewhat after their flying start to the season.
90'+3 CHANCE! Pugh and Wilson work the ball brilliantly into the box, but the hat-trick hero tries to be unselfish instead of burying it, and his cross is cut out! And that looks like the end!
90'+2 Mooy lashes one at goal following a throw-in, but it's dragged horribly wide of the near post. He's had a poor game today.
90' Another yellow card emerges, this time for Hadergjonaj, as he hacks Wilson down in the corner. He gave in to his frustration there.
88' Lewis Cook replaces Arter, who scored Bournemouth's third and really took the pressure off of them.
86' Gosling comes on to replace King, who has worked hard for the team today.
85' King is felled by Quaner after jinking past him.
84' King showed good feet and good strength to hold the ball up in the box, but Huddersfield should b every disappointed that three defenders were unable to nick the ball off of him.
GOAL! Wilson gets his hat-trick! King does excellently to hold the ball up when surrounded by three, before laying it off for his in-form strike partner to fire it across the keeper and into the far corner to make it 4-0 to Bournemouth! What an outstanding result this is for Eddie Howe's side!
83' Mounie thumps a shot into Begovic's middle, and the shot-stopper hangs on. He's hardly been worked today.
82' NO RED CARD! Wilson surges through past Hadergjonaj and appears to be hauled down by the right-back, but the referee waves play on! The home fans are livid!
81' Ake clears yet again as the ball is lofted into the box! Huddersfield have resorted to a direct apporoach here, but the young defender is foiling them time and time again!
78' Ake has had an exceptional second half, heading out yet another cross, this time from Malone, before heading out the corner as well!
77' Huddersfield have been guilty of trying to force the issue here, and Van La Parra tries a through ball that goes out for a throw-in.
74' Ake does brilliantly to head a dangerous cross clear, before getting clattered late from the resulting corner, and stays down.
71' CHANCE! Depoitre tries to flick the ball home on the right side of the box, but it's blocked away. They need something soon if they are to have a chance of getting back into this game.
70' GOAL! Bournemouth put the game to bed! Despite being down to 10 men, they are positive finding King with a quick free-kick. He holds it up well, but can't quite keep possession. However, Arter is there to nick the ball straight back, and then thumps the ball into the bottom-right corner with his left-foot! 3-0 Bournemouth and that's surely that!
67' Huddersfield have had roughly 70% of possession in this second half, but they've struggled to create any clear-cut openings.
66' Smith takes a stinger as he blocks a fierce shot by Ince on the edge of the box.
65' Some nice build-up around the edge of the box pulls Bournemouth around and sees Malone in space on the left, but his cross is awful and he's furious with himself.
64' Begovic slides to clear a fizzed ball into his near post. Unconventional, but it worked!
61' Quaner replaces Kachunga as Wagner throws on an extra striker. Huddersfield look to be going to a three-man defence.
First, centre-back Cranie is replaced by attacking midfielder Sabiri.
60' Huddersfield are about to make a double-change here.
59' It's getting pretty feisty out here as Arter is felled in midfield. Not an easy game to referee!
58' Hadergjonaj shoves Pugh for holding onto the ball, and the Bournemouth man is booked!
56' Mooy's delivery from set-pieces today has been uncharacteristacally dreadful. He concedes a goal-kick as his free-kick is fired straight at one of his own players and deflects out!
55' Another hopeful ball goes into the box from Huddersfield, and Begovic catches comfortably.
53' Huddersfield show a bit of impatience as they search for a goal. Several shots have been fired over the bar from distance as they struggle to break their opponents down.
52' While Bournemouth's shape has been affected, their gameplan is still more or less the same. They're still soaking up Huddersfield pressure and looking to hit their opponents on the break with the pace of Wilson.
50' Wilson looks bewildered as Mooy drops to the floor clutching his face as he challenged the striker, who was taking the ball down on his chest. A free-kick goes Huddersfield's way, but no card.
47' Huddersfield are now on the opposite end of the task they faced in their last game - breaking down a team who are in the lead, but a man down. Bournemouth have gone into a 4-4-1 formation, with King dropping into the right side of midfield.
46' We're back underway, and Huddersfield make a half-time change, bringing on Mounié for Williams in an attacking change.
And that brings the half to a close! Huddersfield piled on the early pressure, but two quickfire goals from Callum Wilson, first heading in from a corner and then firing home a half-volley after a clever free-kick. However, Huddersfield will feel that refereeing decisions went against them, claiming there was a foul in the build-up to the first goal and that the second was just offside. However, they got a decision as Simon Francis made a desperate challenge following a wayward cross-field ball from Pugh, and received his marching orders for a second yellow card. It's 2-0 to Bournemouth at the break, but it remains to be seen how they cope with being a man down for the entirety of the second half.
45'+4 RED CARD! A wayward ball from Pugh sells Francis short, and the defender takes out Van La Parra and gets a second yellow card just before half-time! Bournemouth have it all to do now in the second half!
44' Ince shows some wonderful, clever skill, completely beating a couple of Bournemouth players and is hauled down by a desperate Arter, who is duly booked.
43' Ibe, having earlier gone down injured, is forced off and replaced by right-back Smith. This could see a change in shape for the Cherries to a 3-4-3, with Francis tucking into a back three and Pugh pushing up alongside the frontmen.
42' CHANCE! Cook, of all people, swivels with the ball on the left after the corner, and unleashes a swerving shot that is only just over the bar!
41' CHANCE! What a counter from Bournemouth! A sweeping, flowing move results in Daniels sweeping the ball back across goal, before Surman forces a save with his first-time effort!
39' CHANCE! Hadergjonaj whips in a lovely ball towards Kachunga, who gets between his markers but just can't get his connection right.
37' There's some miscommunication between Pugh and Daniels as the former takes the ball off the latter's toes just as he's about to unleash a shot from the edge of the box.
35' Francis is booked as Van La Parra races away from him, forcing the defender to shove him in the back and take him down. The resulting free-kick is cleared though.
CHANCE! Bournemouth could have had another! King finds some space and unleashes a powerful shot towards the near post, but it's a wasted opportunity as he had options to his left.
31' GOAL! And Wilson scores again! A clever free-kick is whipped into the area and an unmarked Wilson fires home a lovely finish on the half-volley! It's a great goal, although there is a hint of offside and Huddersfield will again be lamenting the referee's decision. However, they switched off again from a set-play and they have paid the price!
Surman's delivery was excellent, and the feinted free-kick was very intelligent, catching the defence unawares.
28' Cook lunges in and picks up a deserved yellow card. He could easily have been booked earlier too.
26' GOAL! And Bournemouth go in front from the corner! Huddersfield felt that they should have had a free-kick on the halfway, but instead, Wilson powers home the corner he won from Ibe's delivery! It was a good delivery into a dangerous area, but the marking was so poor, and Wilson was able to pick his spot with relative ease. 1-0 Bournemouth!
Ibe did what Huddersfield have failed to do from their corners by putting the ball into a dangerous area. Lossl thought about coming, but didn't, and Wilson was able to head home from close range!
25' Bournemouth are very much playing on the counter-attack here, and they break again as Hadergjonaj stays down from a hefty challenge by Daniels. Pugh then plays in Wilson, who wins a corner off of Zanka.
24' Huddersfield win their second corner of the game, but - just like the first - it doesn't beat the first man.
22' The resulting corner falls to King, but he is surrounded by three Huddersfield players and can only scuff his effort into a wall of blue and white. It deflects out to Pugh, and his dangerous-looking cross is headed behind for a corner, which Lossl catches.
21' CHANCE! King gets the better of Zanka, rolling past him and cutting it back for Wilson, but his effort is well saved.
19' CHANCE! Van La Parra tries an acrobatic effort from Hadergjonaj's cross, when Ince was stood just behind him! He's furious with his teammate for not leaving it!
18' CHANCE! Some nice build-up play results in Mooy checking in from the left and whipping the ball across to the far post, but it flies just wide!
16' A lovely break by Bournemouth is brought to an end as Wilson is penalised for a little shove on Zanka, who did well to get to the ball ahead of the striker.
15' Cook gets away without a yellow card, despite blocking Ince and bringing him down in a very promising position.
12' The corner is punched clear by Lossl, before Arter's first-time follow-up on the half-volley is blasted miles over the bar.
11' CHANCE! Wilson is played in behind with a perfectly-weighted pass, but his finish lacks confidence and is blocked away with King up alongside him.
10' CHANCE! Malone gets forward excellently, nutmegging Francis but just drags his finish wide of the far post! Then, Van La Parra gets down the same flank, getting past two before firing a shot at Begovic's near post, which the keeper tips behind for a corner.
9' CHANCE! Depoitre tries to back-heel Malone's left-wing cross in at the near post, but it's blocked away before Begovic has to be alert to push away a drive from the edge of the box.
8' Very bright start from Huddersfield, pressing high up the pitch and keeping the hosts penned in their own half.
6' Van La Parra has a go from distance, and keeps it on target, but it's straight at Begovic, who hangs on.
5' Daniels and Pugh link up well down the left, with the former performing a lovely Cryuff turn before playing the left-back in, who feeds Wilson in the middle - but the flag goes up for offside.
3' King tries to break quickly as he's played through, but Zanka makes a fantastic challenge to stop him in his tracks! He had Wilson in support there, but was closed down so quickly.
1' And we're off for the first-ever top-flight fixture between Bournemouth and Huddersfield!
Bournemouth remain unchanged from their last game against Newcastle, as Joshua King passed a late fitness test to start. Former Arsenal striker Benik Afobe is back on the bench, too, after recovering from a thigh strain. Defenders Brad Smith (hip) and Tyrone Mings (back) remain sidelined, however.
Huddersfield make two changes from the 1-0 victory over West Brom, replacing Jonathan Hogg, along with Christopher Schindler, who was sent off against the Baggies. Danny Williams take's Hogg's place in midfield, while Martin Cranie replaces Schindler at centre-back, making his first Premier League apprearance since 2007, when he played for Portsmouth against Manchester United.
Just four of Bournemouth's 10 Premier League points so far this season have come in home games (40%) - only Swansea (37.5%) and Watford (33.3%) have picked up a lower ratio at home. However, the Cherries have never lost a Premier League home game against a newly-promoted side (W5 D1), winning the last five in a row by an aggregate score of 17-3.
Bournemouth haven't lost a home league game against Huddersfield since August 2007 when the sides were in League One, winning two and drawing three since (including play-offs). In fact, the Terriers have won just one of their last 10 meetings in all competitions (D5 L4), a 5-1 victory in the Championship in August 2013.
However, both Bournemouth and Huddersfield won their last game before the international break, claiming 1-0 wins over Newcastle and West Brom, respectively, and the Cherries in particular will be looking to build momentum ahead of a potentially "season-defining" run of fixtures - according to Asmir Begovic - that sees them face Swansea, Burnley, Southampton, and Crystal Palace.
Huddersfield, on the other hand, have had the opposite turn of form. Following a flying start to life in England's top flight in which they went unbeaten in August, David Wagner's outfit have managed just two wins from the nine fixtures in all competitions that followed (W2 D2 L5).
Five points separate 10th-placed Huddersfield from Bournemouth, who sit just one point above the relegation zone in 17th. The Cherries have had a stuttering start to the season, but have won three of their last four fixtures in all competitions, and have had a significant upturn of form since picking up their first league win of the season against Brighton (W4 D1 L3) - with two of those three losses being creditable 1-0 defeats to Tottenham and Chelsea.
