Bournemouth vs Nottingham Forest team news

Bournemouth

The Cherries took an early lead at West Ham on Thursday night, no prizes for guessing who scored the visitors' goal. Dominic Solanke's early effort was cancelled out in the second forty-five when the Hammers converted a penalty just after the hour mark, and the game ended all square.

James Hill, Tyler Adams, Hamed Traore, Dango Ouattara, Ryan Fredericks, Maximillian Aarons and Darren Randolph make up the list of injury concerns for the home side this weekend.

Predicted Lineup: Neto (GK), Smith, Senesi, Kelly, Zabarnyi, Christie, Cook, Tavernier, Scott, Solanke & Semenyo 

Nottingham Forest

Forest gave a good account of themselves at home to Arsenal but still ended up losing the game. Following a goalless first half, the Gunners scored twice in the space of seven minutes to establish a commanding lead and although substitute Taiwo Awoniyi pulled a goal back on his return from injury, there wasn't enough time remaining for Forest to carve out an equaliser.

Divock Origi is injured and Nuno Varela Tavares isn't allowed to play against his parent club, while Ibrahim Sangare, Olaoluwa Aina, Willy Boly and Serge Aurier are still away at AFCON 2023.

Predicted Lineup: Turner (GK), Toffolo, Montiel, Williams, Omobamidele, Murillo, Mangala, Gibbs-White, Domínguez, Danilo & Wood

Player to Watch: Dominic Solanke

We can't highlight anyone else but Dominic Solanke as the Bournemouth striker is in great form right now and has been scoring goals on a regular basis for the Cherries this season.

The former Liverpool frontman was seen by many as a Championship-level striker but the 26-year-old has proved many of the doubters wrong with his performances in the 2023/24 campaign.

Solanke has netted thirteen times in the Premier League this season after only managing six last time out, and now some big teams are looking to sign the Englishman in the summer.
