Cook set to come in for suspended star
Lewis Cook should come in for suspended Jefferson Lerma when Bournemouth take on Manchester City at the Etihad Stadium on Saturday.
The England international looks the obvious candidate to replace the Cherries club-record signing, who picked up his fifth booking of the season last week against Arsenal.
Manager Eddie Howe is in no doubt the Colombian midfielder, who scored a remarkable own goal in the Arsenal defeat, will be a loss to his side's chances.
"Jefferson has been good I've been pleased with him," said the Cherries boss.
"It's not an easy transition to make and he's adjusted well to the team - it's a good match and we're going to miss him."
Dan Gosling, who started alongside Lerma in midfield against Arsenal last weekend, is also a doubt for Saturday's clash after picking up a knock in the second half.
Howe added: "Dan Gosling has not trained this week...he banged his knee against Arsenal."
