Dembele starts: The predicted AFC Bournemouth XI to face Swansea on Tuesday

Published

on

Looking to confirm promotion to the Premier League over the next couple of weeks, Bournemouth travel to Swansea City on Tuesday night to try and extend the gap between themselves and Huddersfield Town in third. 

The Cherries, who are two points above Huddersfield, will be eager to take advantage of the two games in hand they possess over the Terriers. 

Scott Parker’s side played out an entertaining 1-1 draw when they welcomed league leaders Fulham to The Vitality Stadium, with the two teams showing their quality in what was an excellent clash. 

Unbeaten in their last four, in what has been a tough run of fixtures for the Cherries, Bournemouth can travel to South Wales in a relatively confident mood.

Here, we take a look at how Parker’s side could line up tomorrow when they visit the Swansea.com Stadium…

Mark Travers has been a safe pair of hands for the Cherries, whilst he has also shown that he has the composure and ability with the ball at his feet to match.

Ethan Laird is likely to continue operating at right-back, whilst the experienced Adam Smith was excellent against the Cottagers and could be deployed on the left-hand side once again.

Lloyd Kelly, who was one of three Bournemouth players to feature in the Championship Team of the Season, is likely to be partnered by Nat Phillips, who is proving to be a great January addition with the pair forming an excellent partnership since the Liverpool loanee’s arrival.

Lewis Cook was another who shone against Fulham on Saturday, and he is likely to feature next to Jefferson Lerma in the middle of midfield.

Philip Billing becomes the second player in this line up who featured in the Championship Team of the Season, with the midfielder likely to play in a more advanced role.

Ryan Christie should be deployed on the right flank, and with serious competition on the other wing, Sirki Dembele could be restored to starting XI duties.

Dom Solanke was the third and final Bournemouth player to feature in the Championship Team of the Season, with the striker proving to be excellent throughout.
