Bournemouth are without a win in their last four league games, but they will look to turn the tide when they host bottom-side West Bromwich Albion at Vitality Stadium on Saturday.
The Cherries come into this game following a 4-1 home defeat at the hands of Tottenham. Eddie Howe must be worried about the recent results, but relegation is not an immediate concern for the South Coast side
Bournemouth sit in the 12th spot with 33 points, which puts them seven points clear of the drop zone. They have been fairly decent at home in the recent weeks, so we expect them to get something out of this game.
West Brom have endured a torrid season and only a miracle can save them from relegation. The Baggies have picked up just three wins this season, and they occupy the bottom spot with 20 points. With eight games left in the season, they are eight points adrift of the safety and considering their current form, they are destined for Championship football next season.
The visitors have lost their last seven games in all competitions. Last weekend, they suffered a heavy 1-4 home defeat to Leicester City.
On the opening weekend of the season, the Baggies registered a 1-0 win over their opponents at the Hawthorns.
