Bournemouth have been boosted by the return to fitness of Simon Francis, Lloyd Kelly and Arnaut Danjuma ahead of the Premier League match against West Ham.

Club captain Francis (knee), defender Lloyd Kelly (ankle) and Dutch forward forward Danjuma (foot) all played in the midweek Carabao Cup defeat by Burton.

Cherries boss Eddie Howe reported no fresh injury concerns, with Charlie Daniels (knee), Dan Gosling (hip), Adam Smith (hamstring), David Brooks (ankle) and Junior Stanislas (knee) all continuing their own recovery.

Manuel Lanzini is back in the West Ham squad after a foot injury.

Michail Antonio is still recovering from hamstring surgery and Winston Reid remains a long-term absentee after a knee injury.

FourFourTwo was launched in 1994 on the back of a World Cup that England hadn’t even qualified for. It was an act of madness… but it somehow worked out. Our mission is to offer our intelligent, international audience access to the game’s biggest names, insightful analysis... and a bit of a giggle. We unashamedly love this game and we hope that our coverage reflects that.
