With injuries stacking up and no win in nine, Bournemouth host Everton knowing that anything but a victory will cause huge consternation among their fans.
Eddie Howe's men are desperate for all three points but come up against a revitalised Toffees team under Sam Allardyce.
Here's how we expect Howe to set his stall out on home turf on Saturday.
He was at fault for Marko Arnautovic's goal in the thrilling 3-3 Boxing Day draw, but Asmir Begovic should be called into action again for the visit of Everton.
With Charlie Daniels a huge doubt for this one, Adam Smith should be asked to perform at left-back once more instead of his natural position on the right.
Howe is expected to stick with the three other defenders who featured against the Hammers too, with Simon Francis, Steve Cook and Nathan Ake all likely to retain their starting berths.
Ryan Fraser could make way for Marc Pugh in the only change to Bournemouth's midfield this weekend.
The likes of Harry Arter, Andrew Surman and Junior Stanislas are all nursing injuries, so Jordon Ibe, Dan Gosling and Lewis Cook will go once again as they do battle with Everton's midfield on the south coast.
With Jermain Defore injured and Benik Afobe short of confidence, Howe will turn to his fearsome front two to try and chalk up a rare win for Bournemouth.
Joshua King is more likely to play off Callum Wilson in the number 10 role on the field, but the pair will dovetail each other as they look to break down Everton's resolute backline.
