Bournemouth are again set to be without Dan Gosling and Charlie Daniels for Monday’s Premier League visit of Crystal Palace. The Cherries have been without midfielder, Gosling, because of a calf injury and it has not cleared up sufficiently for him to be involved in the clash against the Eagles at the Vitality Stadium.
Daniels is being tipped to return from a knee injury later in the week so Diego Rico should retain his place at left-back, despite suffering with a hamstring niggle in the build up to the match.
Kyle Taylor is the other player out of boss Eddie Howe’s plans as he is nursing a calf problem.
Bournemouth host Palace looking to get what had been a positive start to the Premier League season up and running again, having gone down 4-0 at Burnley last time out.
Howe, though, knows Monday night’s encounter with the Eagles will be another stern test.
“We have always found Crystal Palace to be very tough competitors, with a very good squad and they have a very experienced manager,” he said.
