THE TEAM NEWS

BOURNEMOUTH

  • Bournemouth snapped their five-match losing streak last weekend as they scraped an excellent 0-1 win against Chelsea at Stamford Bridge.
  • Eddie Howe admitted he was relieved after that victory but he is still facing an injury crisis as he has to cope with numerous absentees.
  • King is the latest player to pick up a knock and he is a major doubt for this game so Solanke may be asked to come in and lead the attack.

Predicted line-up (4-5-1): Ramsdale; Stacey, Francis, Mepham, Diego Rico; Gosling, Lerma, Billing, L. Cook, Fraser; Solanke

Unavailable: Brooks (Injured), Daniels (Injured), S. Cook (Injured), Ake (Injured), Smith (Injured), Groeneveld (Injured), Kelly (Injured)

Doubtful: King (Injured), C. Wilson (Injured), H. Wilson (Injured)

BURNLEY

  • Burnley got back to winning ways last week after losing their previous three matches as they edged past Newcastle by a single goal.
  • Sean Dyche was boosted by the return to fitness of a number of his players last week and that was evident in the performance of his team.
  • There is an outside chance that Taylor will be fit to return but Dyche will almost certainly name an unchanged starting line-up here.

Predicted line-up (4-4-2): Pope; Bardsley, Tarkowski, Mee, Pieters; Hendrick, Westwood, Cork, McNeil; Barnes, Wood

Unavailable: Gudmundsson (Injured)

Doubtful: Taylor (Injured), Long (Injured), Gibson (Injured)

THE PREDICTION

Bournemouth are seriously depleted by injuries right now and they will be without a whole host of attacking players. With confidence being relatively low for both teams despite coming off 1-0 wins, this one has all the hallmarks of being another low-scoring and cagey match between the two sides.
