Mame Biram Diouf was on target in Stoke City’s 2-1 loss to Bournemouth in an English Premier League encounter on Saturday.

The Cherries took the lead in the 16th minute via an Andrew Surman’s stunning effort. And just two minutes later, they doubled their lead after Junior Stanislas converted from the spot with Ryan Shawcross adjudged to have fouled Benik Afobe in the area.

In the 63rd minute, Diouf handed Mark Hughes' side a way back into the game. A cross by Erik Pieters was controlled by Cameroon’s Eric Maxim Choupo-Moting who laid the ball for the former Manchester United striker to volley past Asmir Begovic.

The Senegal international and Choupo-Moting played all 90 minutes for the Potters as they slipped to their second consecutive league defeat. Benik Afobe also was on parade for the entire duration of the match for the Cherries while Anglo-Nigerian, Jordon Ibe was replaced by Marc Pugh with three minutes left to play.

This was Diouf's third league goal of the season, but the defeat saw Stoke City drop into the bottom three with eight points from nine games played in the English topflight.
