Welcome to our Stoke City vs Bournemouth preview, predictions and head to head analysis. Stoke City are in 18th place in the league after garnering just 3 points from their six matches. A loss at home to Liverpool at the start of the season set the tone, with draws at Tottenham and Norwich following. Defeats at Arsenal and at home to West Brom made things worse and now they really need the points to crawl out of the bottom 3 in the league. Bournemouth too lost at home on the opening day of the season to Aston Villa. However, wins against West Ham and Sunderland have put them in a better position than Stoke. They know they need to keep winning if this stay in the Premier League is to be longer than a season.
