    • KICK OFF
    • 90'
      Charlie Adam goes into the book for a late challenge on Arter.
    • 90'
      Shaqiri cuts onto his left foot and shoots well from 20 yards out, but it goes straight at Federici who holds on well with Arnautovic closing in.
    • 90'
      OFF THE LINE!!! The ball cannons around in the Bournemouth penalty area before Martins Indi pokes it towards goal, only for Arter to clear the ball off the line and out for a throw.
    • 45'
      Three minutes of added time will be played at the end of the first half.

    • 0'
      Bournemouth secure their first away win of the season thanks to Nathan Ake’s first half header, while Mark Hughes will rue several missed opportunities for his side, particularly Bojan’s penalty crashing against the crossbar.
    • 0'
      Full-time: Stoke City 0-1 Bournemouth
    • 0'
      Stoke got more of a foothold in the game once Mark Hughes pushed Joe Allen further up field, and they will be hoping to start the second half in the same vain in which they finished the first, while Eddie Howe will be asking for more of the same from his Bournemouth side.
    • 0'
      Bournemouth dominated the opening half an hour and deservedly took the lead through Nathan Ake’s first goal for the club, but Stoke grew in confidence as the half wore on and were only denied an equaliser by an outstanding goal-line clearance from Steve Cook.
    • 0'
      Half-time: Stoke City 0-1 Bournemouth
    • 0'
      Stoke won both of the meetings between the two sides last season, securing a 2-1 win on this ground in September last year before winning 3-1 at the Vitality Stadium in February.
    • 0'
      Smith’s suspension has forced Eddie Howe into a re-shuffle at the back, with Ake coming in to partner Steve Cook at centre-back and Simon Francis moving across to right-back, while Boruc and Ibe miss out through injury and illness respectively.
    • 0'
      Bournemouth also make three changes from their last game, with Adam Federici and Nathan Ake making their first league starts of the season in place of Artur Boruc and the suspended Adam Smith, while Callum Wilson replaces Jordan Ibe in the other change.
    • 0'
      Mark Hughes makes three changes to the Stoke City side that drew with West Ham, with Xherdan Shaqiri, Bojan Krkic and Marko Arnautovic all coming into the side in place of Jonathon Walters, Ramadan Sobhi and Glenn Whelan, who is out with a hamstring injury.

      Bournemouth in contrast have won just one game since the end of September, a 6-1 thrashing of Hull, and suffered defeats to Middlesbrough and Sunderland in the two games prior to the international break.
    • 0'
      Stoke though will be the more confident of the two teams, having picked up all three of their wins in consecutive games in October, before a 1-1 draw at West Ham United last time out.
    • 0'
      The two sides go into the match separated by just a single point in the table, sitting 12th and 13th respectively having both won three games this season.

      Hello and welcome to live coverage of the Premier League game between Stoke City and Bournemouth at the bet365 Stadium.
    • 1'
      Kick-off! Stoke City get the game underway.
    • 2'
      Jack Wilshere steals the ball from Charlie Adam in the centre circle and plays a lovely through ball for Callum Wilson to run on to, but the linesman’s flag goes up as he runs in on goal. Replays show that the striker can count himself unfortunate there though as he appeared to be onside.
    • 4'
      Wilson looks to get into the box once again with the ball at his feet but Bruno Martins Indi does well to use his strength to shepherd the ball out for a goal kick.
    • 6'
      Marko Arnautovic is penalised for a late challenge on Harry Arter in midfield. The winger is perhaps lucky to escape a booking there as he went in with his studs on Arter’s calf after the ball had gone.
    • 7'
      Stoke take a quick free-kick down the left after a foul from Josh King inside his own half and Pieters gets in behind Francis, but Ake is well positioned at the near post to clear the cross.
    • 10'
      Patient build-up play from Bournemouth creates space for Dan Gosling 25 yards out from goal, but Pieters does well to get out and rush the midfielder who fires his shot high over the bar.
    • 12'
      Huge appeals for a penalty from Wilson!! Wilshere plays a superb ball down the left for Wilson to run onto, and the striker gets goal-side of Ryan Shawcross before being brought to ground by the centre-back just 8 yards out from goal, but Roger East waives play on!
    • 13'
      Wonderful save from Grant!! Wilshere involved again as he drives into the box before playing a square ball across to King, whose low driven shot seems destined for the bottom corner but Lee Grant springs to his right to keep it out.
    • 15'
      The Bournemouth players, along with their manager Eddie Howe, are still fuming at the decision not to award a penalty for the challenge on Callum Wilson moments ago.
    • 16'
      King does really well to spin out of a challenge from Adam, but Allen trips him as he looks to break away towards goal and Bournemouth have a free-kick 25 yards out from goal. Allen is shown a yellow card for the foul.
    • 18'
      Stanislas's free-kick is deflected off the wall and out for a corner, but Bony gets up well at the near post to head it clear.
    • 21'
      Stoke are really struggling to get out of their own half here and Wilson is causing Shawcross and Martins Indi all sorts of problems with his pace up front.
    • 22'
      Wilfried Bony is shown a yellow card for a high boot on Ake as the centre-back looked to head the ball clear. The striker held his hands up to apologise as soon as he’d committee the foul.
    • 24'
      Bardsley takes a quick throw-in to find Shaqiri in space on the right hand side of the penalty box, but Bony is the only man in the Bournemouth box and the Swiss winger can’t pick him out.
    • 26'
      G N. Aké Assist J. Stanislas
    • 26'
      It was a wonderful cross from Stanislas but Mark Hughes will be furious at the amount of space Ake had in the box.
    • 26'
      GOOOOAAALLLLL!!!!! Nathan Ake heads Bournemouth ahead!! Stansilas whips in a superb cross from a free-kick on the right hand edge of the box after a controversial foul from Pieters, and Ake rises highest on the edge of the six yard box to head home and give Eddie Howe’s side a deserved lead.
    • 29'
      Harry Arter went down inside the Stoke City half with what looked to be a calf injury, but the midfielder has now returned to the field of play much to the relief of Eddie Howe.
    • 32'
      Pieters pulls back King close to halfway on the right hand touchline and Roger East awards Bournemouth a free-kick, much to the annoyance of the home fans who greet the decision with loud boos.
    • 34'
      Allen is brought down by Arter just outside the Bournemouth box as he made a surging run towards the Bournemouth goal, and the Irish midfielder is shown a yellow card.
    • 35'
      Shaqiri takes the resultant free-kick but can’t get enough dip on the ball and Federici watches it sail over the crossbar.
    • 38'
      Joe Allen looks to be playing further forward now and Stoke are getting more men into the box and growing into the game as a result here.
    • 39'
      Wonderful ball from Arter into the path of Charlie Daniels who has space on the left hand side of the box, but Adam does well to track back and intercept the cross.
    • 41'
      Off the line!!! Shawcross’s initial header is cleared straight back to him by Ake from a Shaqiri corner, and the centre-back loops his back-post header over Federici only for Cook to leap up and head the ball off the line!
    • 43'
      Stoke have really grown into this game now, this time Arnautovic swings in a dangerous cross from the left towards Bony in the middle. Ake does well to prevent Bony getting to the ball but Federici still scrambles across his goal as the cross only just evades the far post.
    • 44'
      Dan Gosling is shown a yellow card for dissent towards the referee.
    • 45'
      Half-chance for Stoke as the ball breaks to Arnautovic on the edge of the box, but the Austrian winger rushes his shot on the turn and fluffs it horribly making it an easy save for Federici.
    • 46'
      Bright start from Bournemouth as Wilshere has space to run at the Stoke defence and he looks to play in King down the right hand side of the box, but Arnautovic tracks back well to intercept the pass.
    • 46'
      Kick-off! Bournemouth get the second half underway.
    • 48'
    • 49'
      The Bournemouth goalkeeper Adam Federici is shown a yellow card for dissent after the decision.
    • 49'
      Federici does well to spring to his right to keep out a Bony header, but Bojan picks up the rebound and goes down just inside the box under a pretty soft challenge from Francis. Roger East points to the spot to award a penalty but Bojan can’t take advantage.
    • 49'
      OFF THE BAR!!!! Bojan fires the penalty against the crossbar!!
    • 52'
      Phil Bardsley is down receiving treatment to his knee after a clash with Wilshere.
    • 55'
      Glenn Johnson is warming up as it doesn’t look like Bardsley is going to be able to continue here.
    • 56'
      Tempers are just starting to flair now as Bony dives in late on Simon Francis close to halfway. The striker has been booked already but it looks as though he's going to escape without punishment.
    • 57'
      SI G. Johnson SO J. Stanislas
    • 57'
      Stoke finally make the change at right-back as Phil Bardsley is replaced by Glen Johnson.
    • 58'
      A half-chance for Wilson as Wilshere whips in a lovely left-footed cross from deep on the right hand side and the striker gets in between the two centre-backs but can’t direct his header on goal.
    • 61'
      A lovely one-two between Daniels and Wilshere very nearly leads to Wilson being played in on goal, but the left-back’s through ball is too heavy and Grant can easily gather the ball.
    • 63'
      Chance for King!! The ball bounces around the Stoke penalty area before falling at the feet of Josh King, who decides to take a shot on from a tight angle instead of looking for Wilson who was unmarked at the back post, but his sliced shot goes wide of the near post.
    • 66'
      Benik Afobe had stripped off after Stanislas went down with a shoulder injury, but the winger looks to be alright to continue and Afobe has to put his tracksuit top back on.
    • 68'
      SI P. Crouch SO J. Stanislas
    • 68'
      With the exception of the penalty, Stoke have really struggled to get into the game in the second half, and Mark Hughes is bringing Peter Crouch on in place of Wilfried Bony in an attempt to change that.
    • 69'
      SI B. Afobe SO J. Stanislas
    • 69'
      An early chance for Afobe as he gets into the Stoke box down the right hand side but slips as he goes to shoot and the ball dribbles out for a goal-kick.
    • 69'
      A first change for Bournemouth now as Benik Afobe does get on, replacing Callum Wilson as the central striker.
    • 71'
      Roger East just having to calm things down now as Wilshere and Allen square up to each other in the middle of the pitch.
    • 72'
      King uses his pace to get down the outside of Martins Indi on the right hand edge of the Stoke area, but Shawcross positioned himself well at the near post to prevent the ball reaching Afobe in the middle.
    • 73'
      SI J. Walters SO J. Stanislas
    • 73'
      A third and final change for Stoke as Jonathan Walters replaces Bojan.
    • 75'
      Francis gets to the by-line once again and fires a cross towards Afobe, but the ball deflects into the chest of the striker and bounces just wide of Lee Grant’s goal.
    • 77'
      Arnautovic drives towards goal from the corner of the box, but his touch is a loose one and Francis sticks out a leg to make an excellent tackle. The game has really opened up now though!
    • 79'
      Wilshere is dictating play whenever he gets on the ball now that the game has become so much more stretched, this time he fires a ball into the feet of Afobe inside the box, but the striker’s attempted flick towards Stanislas is well read by Martins Indi who clears.
    • 81'
      SI M. Pugh SO J. Stanislas
    • 81'
      Another change for Bournemouth as Joshua King is replaced by Marc Pugh.
    • 81'
      Huge chance for Shaqiri!!! Arnautovic gets in behind Francis and pulls a low cross back towards Shaqiri who is unmarked on the penalty spot, but he leans back as he shoots and fires the ball high into the stands!
    • 83'
      Another half chance for Stoke as Crouch plays the ball into Arnautovic 25 yards out from goal, but the Austrian is isolated so takes the shot first time and hits it wide of Federici’s left-hand post.
    • 86'
      HUGE CHANCE FOR WALTERS!! Adam puts in a superb cross from deep on the left and Walters is unmarked on the edge of the six yard box, but can’t generate enough power on the header to get in past Federici who holds on low to his right.
    • 88'
      Walters looks to cut inside Daniels on the right hand side but Pugh tracks back really well to tackle the Irishman and Bournemouth survive another attack.
    • 90'
      OFF THE POST!!! Afobe holds the ball up well before picking out Wilshere on the edge of the box, who curls a ferocious effort towards the far corner only to see it cannon off the post and out for a goal-kick.
