As we look to secure our place in the top four this weekend, we travel to AFC Bournemouth on Saturday (12.30pm).
In our previous meeting this season, we stormed to a 5-0 victory over the Cherries thanks to goals from Christian Eriksen, Lucas Moura, Harry Kane and a brace from Heung-Min Son.
Here’s everything you need to know about our opponents this weekend…
Eddie Howe has several injury concerns ahead of our visit to the Vitality Stadium with Dan Gosling (calf), Adam Smith (knee), David Brooks (ankle) and Dominic Solanke (hamstring) all doubts ahead of the game.
Junior Stanislas, Charlie Daniels, Simon Francis, Lewis Cook and Andrew Surman all remain long-term absentees and will not play again this season.
One to watch
In previous seasons, the misfortune of a series of serious injuries have restricted the progress of striker Callum Wilson but, this campaign, despite a knee issue which kept him out for six games, he has shown exactly what he is capable of.
A total of 14 goals in 28 games – a strike rate of a goal every other game – is his best return in his four seasons so far in the top flight while with the addition of 10 assists from the centre-forward means Wilson has been involved in 24 goals in 28 appearances this campaign.
His form in the league saw him earn his first call-up to the England national team for their friendly against the USA in November and the former Coventry City man delivered on his maiden appearance as he fired home the Three Lions’ third goal in their 3-0 win.

In a Boxing Day battle at Wembley, we cantered past Bournemouth, scoring five goals as we moved up to second in the Premier League.
In the space of 19 first-half minutes, we were 3-0 ahead thanks to strikes from Eriksen, Son and Lucas, with Kyle Walker-Peters assisting each of the goals.
In the second period, we further asserted our dominance with a well-taken volley from Kane on 61 minutes before Son made it 5-0 nine minutes later as he rounded Asmir Begovic and slotted home.
