STATS: AFC Bournemouth’s 1-0 win at Stoke City last season ended a run of six straight league defeats away against the Potters.
No Premier League team has conceded more goals this season than Stoke City (18), while no side has conceded more shots from inside the six-yard box than
the Cherries (12).
ANALYSIS: Stoke’s 7-2 drubbing at City last weekend means that they probably spent the whole of the week addressing a major issue – their defence. Still with just one win in their last six games, the Potters should really be up for it against an unpredictable Bournemouth who could find themselves at the base of the table after this weekend’s round of matches.
PREDICTION: OVER 2.5.
