AFC Bournemouth v West Brom

Scout: Jack Wilshere lead

Jack Wilshere could be in line for a Premier League debut for AFC Bournemouth, after Eddie Howe revealed that the new signing has looked "very bright in training." 

Tyrone Mings is unlikely to feature despite stepping up his recovery from long-term injury with a testimonial appearance against AC Milan last week.  

West Bromwich Albion have no fresh injury concerns, though Chris Brunt is making good progress in his recovery from a long-term knee problem and could be back next month.

Did you know?

The Baggies failed to win either of their meetings with AFC Bournemouth last season, losing at home before drawing 1-1 at Vitality Stadium. 

Jack Wilshere has scored in his last two Premier League matches against West Brom – against no other opponent has he scored more often in the competition.

Joshua King ended a run of six goalless league matches with the opener against Crystal Palace in Matchweek 3. 

Only Arsenal (27) and Man Utd (25) have kept more PL clean sheets than West Brom (23) since January 2015.

What the managers say 

Eddie Howe on Jack Wilshere:  "We will wait and see what my team selection is but I think he has naturally given the place a lift - there has been a positive impact around the squad."

Tony Pulis: "Most of my family will be at the game. They have invested heavily and have got some good players. It will be tough."
