Our match prediction:
AFC Bournemouth suffered a 2-0 defeat to title-chasing Arsenal at the weekend, but with the team heading into the final stretch of the season five points clear of the relegation zone, Eddie Howe and his men can be delighted with their achievements this term. The match against the Gunners, however, did show a differnce in class between the two sides and while this is probably the perfect time to be facing out-of-sorts Stoke City, we do not expect the Cherries to return to winning ways next weekend. The Potters have been utterly disappointing of late, losing four of last five matches on all fronts, failing to score in each of those defeats, but, given the quality of players Mark Hughes has at his disposal, it is only a matter of time before they returned to the right track. With Stoke boasting a 4-4-5 away record in the league, we are backing them to earn a valuable point on the road.
