Bournemouth vs Stoke preview

Bournemouth vs Stoke

English Premier League


After stunning Chelsea at Stamford Bridge, Bournemouth are back home and will look for another three points, this time against Stoke.

The Cherries are unbeaten in last six league games, winning three and drawing three, and are now 5 points clear of relegation zone.

Apart from defender Adam Smith, who also missed win over Chelsea, Eddie Howe has no new injury worries, with Defoe and Mings as long term absentees.

Stoke are unbeaten under Paul Lambert, and picked four points in last two games – win against Huddersfield and draw against Watford, both at home. However, their road record is quite poor, and they have picked only one point in last 6 league games away from home.

Although bettify rating system doesn’t get carried away with spectacular and unexpected wins, like Cherries’ win at Chelsea, Bournemouth are still strong favorites to win this match. Once again, Stoke are one of the weakest travelers in league, they have one of the worst defensive record, and with average 2.5 goals they shipped away from home this season, home win in this match looks like very possible outcome.
