Substitute Mame Biram Diouf’s header against Bournemouth gave Stoke their first Premier League win of the season.

Jonathan Walters scored from Marko Arnautovic’s cross to put the hosts ahead before Dan Gosling equalised with a deflected strike after the break.

Striker Diouf then stooped to head in Glen Johnson’s superb cross from the right for the winner on 83 minutes.

Bournemouth played most of the match without striker Callum Wilson after he suffered a serious-looking knee injury.

Bournemouth’s day starts badly

Bournemouth manager Eddie Howe had spoken of the need to start strongly at the Britannia Stadium but the loss of striker Callum Wilson after 17 minutes was about as bad as it could have been.

Wilson hurt his knee in an innocuous exchange with Stoke defender Philipp Wollscheid. Wilson jogged freely at the side of the pitch but lasted only 30 seconds after coming back on before his leg gave way underneath him.

The 23-year-old had scored five goals in six Premier League matches and arrived in Staffordshire after talk of inclusion in the next England squad.

His afternoon ended prematurely as he left the field on a stretcher amid worrying scenes for the Cherries.

Stoke finally find a way to win

Failure to record victory over Bournemouth would have meant Stoke had gone seven top-flight matches without a win for the first time since 1973-74.

The Potters surrendered a 2-0 advantage to

draw with Leicester City

seven days earlier and, when Dan Gosling’s deflected strike beat Jack Butland to equalise for Bournemouth, it looked like a repeat was on the cards.

Mark Hughes, ranting from the touchline, was clearly unhappy his team had dropped deep to protect their lead but a moment of quality from Glen Johnson and Mame Biram Diouf eased the tension around the Britannia Stadium.
