It hasn’t been pretty for Bournemouth since Nathan Ake left town. Without their defensive stand-out, they’ve given up 10 goals in three games, and today WBA look to pile on to their woes.

Bournemouth are in danger of slipping into relegation trouble. Eddie Howe’s men have been dreadful in 2017, as the club has only managed two points in seven games. Also, Howe’s first selection striker Callum Wilson went down for the season. Things aren’t looking good, and they aren’t getting any better at The Hawthorns.

West Bromwich played better in 2016 than they have so far in 2017, but the drop-off hasn’t been as dramatic as it has been for The Cherries. Tony Pulis gets a boost with Jonny Evans returning to the starting XI, allowing Craig Dawson to shift to his duties as the right full-back.
