Swansea City striker Tammy Abraham (back) is doubtful and at risk of missing the match along with long-term absentee Kyle Bartley (knee).

AFC Bournemouth will again be without Jermain Defoe (calf) and Junior Stanislas (groin) but Benik Afobe could play for the first time in almost a month.

Simon Francis will serve a one-match suspension after his dismissal against Huddersfield Town last Saturday.

Did you know?

AFC Bournemouth are unbeaten in their four Premier League encounters against Swansea City, winning the last three in a row (D1).

The Cherries are aiming to keep three successive clean sheets in the Premier League for the first time ever.

Tammy Abraham has had a hand in the highest percentage of his team’s goals in the Premier League this season (71%, four goals and one assist).

A total of 43% of Callum Wilson’s PL goals have been as part of a hat-trick (6/14), the highest ratio of any player with at least 10 goals in the competition.

What the managers say

Paul Clement: “They are a good side – good with the ball and with a couple of strikers who are dangerous. We are going to have to play well because they are coming off the back of some good results.”
