Burnley goalkeeper Tom Heaton is set to reclaim a starting spot after recovering from the calf injury that has kept him out of the last two games.
Midfielder Johann Berg Gudmundsson remains out with a hamstring injury, while Steven Defour and Sam Vokes will hope to earn recalls.
Bournemouth left-back Charlie Daniels is fit after a hip problem, but Junior Stanislas is out with an ankle injury.
Fellow midfielder Andrew Surman is still sidelined by a hamstring problem.
Steve Wilson: “A little over four years ago, Eddie Howe cut short his time at Burnley to return to Bournemouth – which then meant dropping from the Championship into League One.
“Howe’s departure opened the door for Sean Dyche – and such has been the success for both clubs, that neither will have even the merest hint of regret.
“Bournemouth’s astonishing recovery against Liverpool last Sunday will live long in the memory, but Howe would be disappointed if that turned out to be the high point of their season. Constant progression is a must for the Premier League’s youngest boss.
“Dyche will be concerned at a run of three consecutive defeats but still must be confident of becoming the first Burnley boss to avoid relegation from the top flight since Jimmy Adamson in 1975.”
Burnley manager Sean Dyche on Bournemouth’s financial resources: “The money is a big challenge for us…. we haven’t got their backer who seemingly keeps writing the cheques.
“They have spent a lot over the last two seasons. If I had [it] I’d spend it, but this club runs in a different way. That can’t be held against them, it’s just a fact.
“It’s £15m for a young player [Jordon Ibe], £11m for [Benik] Afobe, £7m on a winger [Max Gradel], £8m on a left-back [Tyrone Mings]. They’re figures we can’t get to and all the wages that go with that of course.
“We are what we are and we don’t really over-think what everyone else is doing.”
Bournemouth manager Eddie Howe: “I can’t lie and say it’s just another game. It’s a little bit more than that personally, both for me and for Jason Tindall my assistant.
“I really enjoyed my time at Burnley. I’m very, very fond of the town, the people who work at the club and the players we worked with who are still there.
“But it’s a game for Bournemouth and we need to get as many points as we can. I think Burnley are a good side and I don’t see them being in any trouble this year, they’ve got more than enough resilience.”
Bournemouth got a fantastic result against Liverpool last weekend and I like the way they try to play against every team.
But we’ve seen how difficult Burnley make it for teams at Turf Moor this season, even in games they have lost against Arsenal and Manchester City, and I think they might be a little bit too direct for the Cherries to handle.
