Can Bournemouth get back on track?

A fortnight ago, they put in their most toothless display of the campaign so far, going down 1-0 at Arsenal.

That was particularly disappointing as it ended a three-game unbeaten run in which they beat Southampton and Everton before drawing with West Ham.

At home this season, the Cherries have only lost once and that was to Manchester City in August.

The 11 points Eddie Howe’s side have so far represents a decent start and means they are in tenth place.

After this, they travel to face the league’s bottom club Watford before an eye-catching home clash with Manchester United.

This is an opportunity for the Cherries to rebuild some momentum so will they claim another home victory here?

As for Norwich, they came crashing back down to earth last time out.

Daniel Farke’s side were demolished 5-1 by Aston Villa with their one, scored by Josip Drmić, coming in the 87th minute.

That is the first time they’ve conceded five goals at home in a league match since a famous 5-4 loss to Liverpool in January 2016.

It’s now three defeats in a row for the Canaries following back to back away loses at Burnley and Crystal Palace.

All six of their points so far have been won at home in wins over Newcastle United and Manchester City.

They’re currently second-bottom of the table and the away form has to be a concern.

Only Manchester City and Chelsea matches have seen more goals than Norwich games this season.

The only problem being that 20 of those 30 goals have been scored by the opposition.

Can they tighten up at the back and leave Dorset with a point or even all three?

Despite defeat at Arsenal, Eddie Howe is not likely to make too many changes to his starting XI.

Aaron Ramsdale is very much the number one goalkeeper.

In defence, Jack Stacey will continue at right-back.

On the other side, after an impressive performance for England U21s, Lloyd Kelly could come in for Diego Rico.

Steve Cook and Nathan Aké will continue as centre-backs.

In midfield, Dan Gosling is out.

Jefferson Lerma and Philip Billing will continue as the duo, chosen ahead of Lewis Cook.

Out-wide will be Harry Wilson and Josh King despite the fact the latter has said he prefers to play as a centre-forward.

David Brooks has not featured this season after knee surgery but could be back on the bench either this week or next.

King is being forced to play out-wide because Howe is giving Dominic Solanke the chance to partner Callum Wilson.

This is a very attacking line-up so will it prove too hot for Norwich to handle?

As for Daniel Farke’s side, they have been riddled with injuries so far but could have some key players back.

Third-choice goalkeeper Michael McGovern started their last match before starting for Northern Ireland for the first time in 23 months in Monday’s friendly.

However, regular goalkeeper Tim Krul should be available again after a back injury.

In defence, regulars Max Aarons, Ben Godfrey and Jamal Lewis are all likely to start.

The other centre-back position is up for grabs though as Grant Hanley, Christoph Zimmermann and Timm Klose are all still injured.

Thus, Ibrahim Amadou will continue to cover there.

In midfield, Kenny McLean, Moritz Leitner and Marco Stiepermann will all start.

This is partially because Onel Hernández, Alex Tettey, Mario Vrančić and Tom Trybull are all injured.

Out-wide, as always, will be Emi Buendía and Todd Cantwell.

They’ll be looking to support Teemu Pukki.

He scored five goals in his first four Premier League appearances but has not scored any in his last four.

However, he should take confidence from his brace against Armenia for Finland in UEFA Euro 2020 qualifying on Tuesday.

Can Pukki get back on the scoresheet and fire his side to an away day victory?
