Player News - Bournemouth

Date: Team: Pos:

Charlie Daniels is "on his way back" from an ongoing knee problem which has kept him side-lined since the end of August.

Eddie Howe revealed earlier this month that the defender had been working with the medical team after picking up a "niggle," but having made significant strides in the past week, he should be back very soon. "He is in the phase between the physios and the sports science team, where he is building his tolerance up to the pain levels he has been feeling," revealed the Cherries boss. "He is not totally injury-free and is still feeling something but it is improving every day." In his absence, summer signing Diego Lerma has come into the side and done "very well" although Howe admits it is still frustrating to lose a player of his quality. Bournemouth bounced back from Saturday’s blip at Burnley with a narrow 3-2 win over Championship outfit Blackburn Rovers in the Carabao Cup on Tuesday night thanks to a late-winner from substitute Callum Wilson.

Callum Wilson scored deep into injury time to give Bournemouth a 3-2 win over Blackburn and a passage through to the next round of the EFL Cup.

The Cherries actually blew a 2-0 lead before snatching the late winner. Junior Stanislas made his mark on his first start back from injury by volleying the PL side ahead before Jordon added a second from the spot in the second half. That second goal came after Blackburn's 'keeper twice denied Jermain Defoe. Summer signing Jefferson Lerma made an error which left Blackburn back into the tie through Conway before Armstrong levelled proceedings. In the final seconds, Rovers' Williams picked up the ball deliberately to stop Wilson going through 1-on-1 with Raya and saw red. Seconds later, Wilson headed in Marc Pugh's corner to win the game.

AFC Bournemouth's positive start to the campaign came to a crashing halt after a sobering 4-0 loss at the hands of a rejuvenated Burnley side.

Two teams off to two very different starts saw their form shift drastically in the opposite direction and it was the Cherries who took the giant fall. It was a frustrating match to say the least, with very little in terms of quality chances created all afternoon, despite the Clarets allowing the visitors several opportunities to get the ball in dangerous areas. Only one attempt forced Joe Hart into a challenging save, and that came from a nice run by David Brooks who darted into the box before seeing his hard blast blocked. That would have cut a two goal deficit in half, instead the Cherries would concede twice more, putting a painful end to a long day.

Ryan Fraser scored twice as Bournemouth beat Leicester City 4-2 at the Vitality Stadium.

The opening half was disastrous for Claude Puel's men. Jamie Vardy, just back from suspension, missed two early chances before Ryan Fraser fired the Cherries in front on 19'. The Foxes again couldn't make the most of their opportunities as Fraser doubled the lead. Just before half-time it was three as Josh King converted a penalty which had been rewarded after Pereira handled in the box. It went from bad to worse in the second half for the visitors as Wes Morgan was dismissed after picking up his second yellow of the game and Adam Smith increased the deficit. Late consolation goals from Maddison (pen) and Albrighton will do little to mask a poor showing by Leicester. A great win for Bournemouth.

Bournemouth winger Junior Stanislas is back in full first team training after sitting out a few months with injury.

The injury-plagued set piece specialist has endured a torrid stop-start few years, but he seems to have come through his latest injury (a knee problem) well. Stanislas trained throughout the international break, and even came first in a maximal test with his teammates according to his manger who is "pleased" with his progress. GW5 will come too soon for the player, but he will be back soon, probably fighting his way into contention off the bench.

Bournemouth winger Ryan Fraser is an injury doubt for the Cherries' GW5 clash with Leicester.

The Scotland international didn't make his national side's match day squad for their win over Albania during the international break. Fraser picked up a hamstring injury in training. At his pre-match press conference, Eddie Howe said: "Ryan Fraser had a hamstring problem so has been working with our medical team since he returned here." That sort of language points towards a place on the bench to me, with Jordon Ibe probably getting the nod. Howe also confirmed that Josh King has returned from his own international exploits unscathed.

Bournemouth announced that winger Junior Stanislas has signed a new three-year contract extension through 2021.

The Football League journeyman has put together a solid two seasons with a combined 12 goals and nine assists, but saw last season cut short by a knee injury in April. Stanislas hasn't played this season due to the injury and is expected to return in the coming weeks, but that didn't prevent the Cherries from locking down the 28-year-old for three more seasons. Said Stanislas: "It's a nice feeling to get rewarded for some good work over the last couple of years. As soon as it was there I wanted to get it signed and then get my head down and start focusing on improving over the next few years as well."

Ryan Fraser was a notable absentee from the Scotland squad as they kicked-off their UEFA Nations League journey win a 2-0 win over Albania.

It is reported that Fraser, who has had a fantastic start to the season for Bournemouth, picked up an injury in training. We should know more once the player returns to his club and is assessed later in the week.
Sep 11 - 11:19 AM

Bournemouth striker Jermain Defoe will not be leaving on loan before the deadline on Friday.

There have been a few reports circulating that the England international would head out on loan, with Nottingham Forrest the most likely destination. Their manager Aitor Karanka has gone on the record talking about about a potential deal, highlighting that salary may be an issue and that Defoe may not be interested in the move. Eddie Howe set out that he has a threadbare squad when quizzed on the matter, saying: "I’m not going to let anyone go. Our squad is our squad. I’ve said before it’s not huge on numbers. We have 22 established, first-team players and with a couple of injuries at the moment, Jermain is a valued member of our squad."

Bournemouth brushed aside the MK Dons 3-0 to advance to the third round of the Carabao Cup.

Eddie Howe rested quite a few key players including their best players of the early weeks of the season Aké, Wilson, and Brooks. In came Diego Rico and Jefferson Lerma for their debuts amongst a raft of changes. Ryan Fraser was the only player to start having figured from the first whistle in GW3, and he proved pivotal in the first half. The Scot assisted Lys Mousset for the first and scored the second after a break by Ibe. That ex-Liverpool man scored the PL side's third. Interestingly, Rico struck the bar with a free-kick during his debut - one to keep an eye on for fantasy managers if he steals away a starting berth from Charlie Daniels.

Down to 10 men and trailing by two goals, Bournemouth rallied to secure a point in a 2-2 draw with Everton.

At home, the Cherries looked to be in great hands at halftime afterEverton’s Premier League joint-leading scorer Richarlison was sent off for a headbutt in an altercation with Adam Smith. Instead Bournemouth struggled to contain Theo Walcott, who scored the opener then got Smith sent off when the fullback took down Walcott with only goal ahead of him. But down 2-0 in the 75th minute, Callum Wilson was taken down in the box where Joshua King stepped to the spot for his first goal of the season. Four minutes later, Nathan Ake found himself to be the hero of the day when he turned in the tying goal following a scramble after a corner.

Bournemouth added to their opening day win with a 2-1 win over West Ham in London on Saturday.

Maneul Pellegrini introduced a few more of his summer signings to his West Ham side for GW2 and it looked like all the investments were paying dividend by half time. After previously teeing up Chicharito for a good chance, Marko Arnautovic scored a penalty earned by the Mexican to give the Hammers a half-time lead. Callum Wilson saw a good chance turned away by Fabianski before the break too. A shot by Brooks met the same fate after it. In the second-half, Wilson made amends for his earlier miss, scoring a fine individual goal. Steve Cook then put the Cherries ahead with a header from a Fraser free-kick. West Ham pressed on but lacked the cohesion to score again whilst Bournemouth held on for victory. A great start for Eddie Howe's side to 2018/19.

After missing a penalty against Cardiff in Gameweek 1, Bournemouth striker Callum Wilson is adamant that he won't be afraid to take one next time the Cherries earn one.

Many Fantasy Football managers may have presumed that the Englishman would be stripped of penalty duties after Etheridge denied him, but Wilson's language seems to suggest that he hopes to remain in situ as Bournemouth's main man for spot-kicks. He told the Daily Echo: "I will be putting up my hand and will be the first one there. I never shy away. The sort of person I am, I love scoring goals and making sure I can affect things. I am a confident person so there is no way I will be stepping back next time."

Ryan Fraser and Callum Wilson found the back of the net as Bournemouth secured a 2-0 win over Cardiff City at the Vitality Stadium.

Fraser and Wilson were the key men for Bournemouth as the club won a Premier League opener for the first time in four tries. Following his two-assist and one-goal performance in the pre-season finale, Fraser put in another lively outing and deservedly fired the Cherries ahead on 24 minutes. The winger arrived late in the box to sweep home from a Wilson pass following an attacking move he started. Bournemouth were then awarded a penalty when Wilson was brought down, but his low spot-kick was well denied by Neil Etheridge. The forward, however, redeemed himself with a rolled finish into the bottom corner of the net in stoppage-time. Neither big-money signing Jefferson Lerma or Diego Rico were available, but Welsh attacker David Brooks looked sharp on his debut.
Aug 11 - 2:53 PM

Brad Smith has signed with MLS side Seattle Sounders on loan for the rest of the season.

Smith will remain at the club until July 2019 but Bournemouth do have the option to bring him back to the Vitality in January if necessary. That's probably unlikely though given that Smith has made just five PL appearances since July 2016.
