Bournemouth host Stoke on a high after their stunning 3-0 win at Chelsea in midweek.
Boss Eddie Howe said: “We’ve been in really good form.
“Confidence has returned to the group. The manner of the performances against Arsenal and Chelsea was very strong.”
Speaking about their relegation-threatened opponents, he added: “Stoke have changed their system and mentality slightly and the signs look good for them after their opening two games under [Paul] Lambert.”
Stoke manager Lambert said: “Eddie [Howe] has had good continuity [at Bournemouth], which has helped them, his players know each other inside out, they have a good team spirit and they are a good side collectively.
“We can only worry about ourselves, and focus on doing what we know we can do.
“There is no doubt that we can go down there and win the game.”
