Picking the Best Potential Bournemouth Lineup to Face Huddersfield in the Premier League on Tuesday

Bournemouth host Huddersfield on Tuesday looking to bounce back from their defeat at Manchester City on Saturday.


The Cherries were tactically astute for much of the game and showed plenty of heart but the gap in quality eventually showed as Pep Guardiola's side ran out 3-1 winners.


Here's the lineup Eddie Howe could select on Tuesday.

1. Goalkeeper & Defenders

Asmir Begovic (GK) - Begovic's only competition for the goalkeeper spot is Artur Boruc, but the former Chelsea stopper won't lose his spot here.


Simon Francis (RB) - Adam Smith is still ruled out so Francis, who was chasing shadows at Manchester City, will start at right back.


Steve Cook (CB) - The 27-year-old played for Bournemouth during their League One days and has made over 250 appearances for the south coast side.


Nathan Ake (CB) - Arguably Bournemouth's most important defender, Ake loves a goal and should start.


Charlie Daniels (LB) - Like Francis, Daniels struggled to deal with City's pace on Saturday but will have more attacking freedom against Huddersfield.

2. Midfielders

David Brooks (RM) - The Wales international has been a real bright spark during the Cherries' impressive start to the season, grabbing three goals and an assist in 13 league games.


Jefferson Lerma (CM) - Back from suspension, the Colombia international is likely to replace Andrew Surman in central midfield.


Lewis Cook (CM) - The former Leeds man is a bright prospect and is a keen dribbler with an eye for a pass.


Ryan Fraser (LM) - The Scotland international has been one of Bournemouth's key players this season, scoring three goals and grabbing six assists.

3. Forwards

Callum Wilson (ST) - Wilson, recently capped at international level with England, is one of the Premier League's leading goalscorers with seven strikes.


Joshua King (ST) - King is another important part of Bournemouth's attack set-up, grabbing five goals in 11 league games.
