Bournemouth were quick out of the blocks against Tottenham last weekend but ultimately faded as they fell to a 4-1 home defeat to Mauricio Pochettino’s men. Next up for the Cherries is the visit of a West Brom side who have lost their last six league outings.

It is looking desperately bleak for the Baggies now as they need to find some wins with just a handful of games remaining. They are eight points from safety with as many games left but the league’s lowest scorers have not won any of their last seven games in the division.

This is a stat that will play into Bournemouth’s hands, who are only a win or so away from securing their top-flight status for a fourth successive campaign. All signs point to that being the case and more misery for the team that sits adrift at the foot of the table.

Bournemouth’s only home win over West Brom in the Premier League came back in September 2016, in a game that was decided by just the single goal. This came from Callum Wilson, whose neat flicked finished 11 minutes from time was enough to give the Cherries all three points.
