Picking the Best Potential Bournemouth Lineup to Face Liverpool on Sunday

Bournemouth, who are without a win in their last five ​Premier League games, face one of the division's strongest attacking sides in Liverpool at home on Sunday. 


The Cherries' poor form has seen them drop to 14th in the league and Eddie Howe's men now sit just two points above the relegation zone, following the resurgence of some teams around them. 


​Bournemouth will be frustrated by their league position after drawing winnable games against Crystal Palace, Swansea and ​Southampton. Now the Cherries will be hoping to make amends with an upset against fifth-placed ​Liverpool

After missing the game against ​Crystal Palace, Adam Smith returned to the starting XI for the clash with ​Manchester United and will probably keep his place on Sunday. ​


With no new injury concerns the rest of the back four is also likely to remain unchanged, with captain Simon Francis, Nathan Ake and Charlie Daniels all set to keep their places. 

Midfield

​In midfield, Junior Stanislas and Ryan Fraser have started the last three matches for the South coast side and should continue on the wings.


In the centre, Lewis Cook and Andrew Surman were rested for the game against Manchester United but are poised to make a return to the starting lineup.

Forwards

  • Defoe

​Jermain Defoe is likely to be recalled to the starting XI after only making a substitute appearance against Manchester United. The striker has started to find some form for Bournemouth, scoring two vital goals against Crystal Palace, after a slow start.


Joshua King could also continue upfront after starting the previous three matches.
