Introduced from the bench to score the goals in last weekend’s 2-2 draw with Crystal Palace, Josh King and possibly Lys Mousset will now push for recalls against Liverpool. Without a goal from his last eight starts, Callum Wilson could drop to the bench, allowing King to play in a support striker role behind Jermain Defoe in a 4-4-1-1 formation. Mousset is a possible alternative to Marc Pugh out wide, although Jordon Ibe has returned to training following illness, and may get the nod. Andrew Surman provides a different option in the middle of the park, or if Eddie Howe opts to play with an extra midfielder. Adam Smith (knee) is still out, so the back four should stay unchanged. Tyrone Mings and Junior Stanislas remain sidelined.
Francis – S Cook – Ake – Daniels
Fraser – Cook – Goslin – Ibe
