They made 18 goals and 11 assists.Bournemouth are in freefall at the moment having lost their last five league matches and they are blighted by a growing injury list.

STATS:

Rudiger made his long-awaited return from injury in midweek and he came through that unscathed but he is unlikely to start this one. Frank Lampard switched to a 4-3-3 in midweek but he could revert to a 4-2-3-1 with Mount coming back in to play just behind Abraham.

Ake and Callum Wilson are the latest players to pick up injuries which may see them miss out here but they do welcome back Harry Wilson.
