Mark Hughes was full of praise of Eddie Howe ahead of the Premier League clash between AFC Bournemouth and Stoke City.

"They're playing well at the moment and I think they were unlucky last time out," Hughes said of Bournemouth's 2-0 defeat to Arsenal last weekend.

"We know they're a hard-working side. Their stats in terms of what they produce in every game are really high – some of the highest in the Premier League."
