Stoke have won 50% of all the previous head-to head meetings between themselves and Bournemouth.

Stoke share the record of being the Premier League club that has conceded the most goals from the first eight matches of the season. Mark Hughes’ men have conceded 18 league goals - an average of 2.25 goals against per game.

They have also conceded 12 of those in their last three matches.

Bournemouth are yet to pick up any points away from the Vitality Stadium this season.

Both Stoke and Bournemouth have only picked up one win in their last five matches. They also have identical records of W1, D1, L3 during this run of games.

No Bournemouth player has scored more than one Premier League goal this season.

Asmir Begovic and Charlie Daniels have played in every minute of Bournemouth’s season so far, while Darren Fletcher and Jack Butland have done the exact same for Stoke.

Peter Crouch is one of three Stoke players to score more than one Premier League goal this season. He is something of an impact sub as he needs only 51 minutes on average to find the net.

Stoke have the joint best disciplinary record this season, a record they currently share with Arsenal. They have picked up just eight bookings in as many games.

Stoke’s solitary home Premier League win over Bournemouth came back in September 2015. It would be the first meeting between the clubs for 12 years and the Potters ended up earning all three points thanks to a 2-1 win.
