Bournemouth claimed arguably their biggest result of the season as they registered a 3-0 win at Chelsea on Wednesday.
On Saturday, they will return to the comforts of home as they host Stoke City at Vitality Stadium. The Cherries are unbeaten in their last six league games and currently sit in the tenth spot with 28 points.
In their last home game, the Cherries had claimed yet another impressive result as they defeated Arsenal 2-1. Eddie How will be confident of another impressive showing from his players, especially in front of the home fans.
Following the appointment of Paul Lambert as club-manager, the Potters have picked up four points from their last two league games. On Wednesday, they picked up a goalless draw against Watford at home. The draw at Bet365 Stadium helped the Potters climb out of the drop zone, and now they are placed 16th in the table with 24 points.
Only one point separates the Potters from the bottom-three and the will be very mindful of that going into the game.
Earlier this season, the Cherries claimed a 2-1 win over their opponents at Bet365 Stadium.
