The Cherries travel to the Britannia Stadium this afternoon to play Mark Hughes' Stoke City side in a highly important match for both sides who look to bounce back from disappointing defeats last weekend.
The Cherries lost 1-0 to Tottenham Hotspur at Wembley last weekend, in a game where Eddie Howe's side really deserved at least a share of the spoils. Meanwhile, Stoke were thrashed 7-2 by a rampant Manchester City side, and the Cherries will pray for a similar result this afternoon.
The Cherries will also be helped by the fact that Howe only has a handful of injuries to deal with- Tyrone Mings and Brad Smith remain out with their respective injuries, whilst Ryan Fraser will have a late fitness test prior to the game. The game could also see Callum Wilson back in the squad, returning to the place where he picked up his first knee injury 2 years ago.
The Cherries could also be helped by injuries to a number of Stoke's key players; Xhedan Shaqiri, Bruno Martens-Indi, Ryan Shawcross and Tom Edwards could all potentially miss the match, and further help Howe's side in their quest for three points.
