With the visit of Crystal Palace to the Vitality Stadium, Bournemouth will be looking for their first win of 2017, as they look to climb back up the Premier League table. With the return of Max Gradel from the African Cup of Nations and Simon Francis back from suspension, Bournemouth boss Eddie Howes will have the luxury of a full squad to choose from. The visitors, however, will likely be without Scott Dann and Jeff Schlupp due to leg injuries. The return of Wifreid Zaha and Bakary Sako from African cup of Nations duty, alongside the possible debut of new boy Patrick Van Aanholt, will add strength to the squad.
Reigning Premier League champions Leicester City have no new injury worries for their fixture at Turf Moor tonight. They are still unable to call on forwards Leonardo Ulloa and Islam Slimani, due to injury, but there could be a possible return for Riyad Mahrez, who has been out for a month. Home team boss Sean Dyche has named an unchanged squad for Burnley after Gudmundsson and Scott Arfield both came through Saturday’s F.A cup game unscathed.
8th placed West Bromwich Albion will be aiming for two consecutive clean sheets as they travel to the North East to take on Middlesbrough at the Riverside Stadium. With defender Jonny Evans still nursing a calf injury, there is an unchanged look to the squad that could see new boy Jake Livermore keep his place on the bench. For the home team, Daniel Ayala and Antonio Barragan could return in place of injured duo Calum Chambers and George Friend, while there is no place in the squad for the unsettled Gaston Ramirez.
