Bournemouth vs Liverpool - Bournemouth hit by injury for the visit of league leaders Liverpool

Bournemouth boss Eddie Howe will be without several key men for Premier League leaders Liverpool’s visit to the Vitality Stadium on Saturday.

Defenders Steve Cook (broken wrist) and Adam Smith (ankle) are both ruled out as the Cherries bid to avoid their fifth successive defeat.

Forward Joshua King (hamstring) is also sidelined and midfielder Harry Wilson is ineligible against his parent club.

Junior Stanislas and David Brooks are both recovering from long-term injuries.
