2 of 3

CM: Lewis Miley - Although Sean Longstaff is back from injury, it seems harsh to bench Lewis Miley who is in great form and put in another exceptional performance in midweek. Given that he was one of the first to be subbed off despite his impressive display (and assist), I assume Howe has the youngster in mind for this match.

CM: Bruno Guimaraes - Fulham have a strong midfield so it will be an interesting battle. With that in mind, Eddie Howe is likely to call upon Bruno G who is capable of single-manning a midfield battle. He's been one of our best players this season, so if anyone can inspire a turnaround of form it's this man.

CM: Joelinton - Put in an exceptional display against AC Milan in midweek and scored an incredible goal. Unfortunately the input from Mr Versatile wasn't enough, but he'll fancy his chances of having another fine attacking display in this weekend's match.
