Hosts Bournemouth sit second-bottom after a dismal start to the new campaign as Eddie Howe will look for a much better display from his boys when they host Tony Pulis’ West Bromwich Albion at Dean Court on Saturday. The Cherries are yet to record their first three points of the season. Eddie Howe’s side opened their campaign with a 1-3 loss against mighty Manchester United. The same fate awaited them against West Ham United in the second game week. However, they improved to some extent against Crystal Palace in the last matchday as they could manage a draw against the Eagles.

West Brom had a decent start to their campaign, though, having managed to get four points from three Premier League outings so far. The Baggies opened their Premier League campaign in a fine manner with a 0-1 win against Crystal Palace away from home but were beaten 1-2 by Everton at home. A 0-0 encounter against Boro at the Hawthorns on the 28th of August gave took their tally to four points.

Deadline day capture Jack Wilshere is in line for his debut in Bournemouth colours and he is pretty much the headliner for the fixture. The Cherries will be looking to climb up the table while the Baggies are likely to take a safety first option.
