It's an intriguing game. Bournemouth are looking to play from everywhere and have the quality to do so whilst our game is to press high and turnover the ball in their half to penetrate quickly. In doing so, if either team gets it slightly wrong, they can leave themselves open.

I'm not sure our change to a 3-5-2 formation is quite suiting us as Nelson is playing deeper than normal and Bournemouth are strong down the right, particularly the winger no.10. Maybe a switch to 4-2-3-1 with Joe Wragg coming on might help. Ellis Johnson looks good again at right back/wingback.
