Gosling expecting more from Lerma partnership
Bournemouth star Dan Gosling says he and Jefferson Lerma can form a solid partnership despite the current language barrier.
Cherries coach Eddie Howe has decided to pair the duo together for the last three Premier League matches against Watford, Everton and West Ham United.
Gosling has looked in good form of late after he returned from a knee injury with he and Lerma helping the south coast outfit win their last game against the Hammers.
Gosling and Lerma have been given the nod on six occasions this season but the former believes fans have yet to see their best form.
He told the Daily Echo: "The language barrier is still a bit of an issue in certain moments, such as when the game is restarting with set-plays and we have to position ourselves correctly.
"He is learning all the time and it is a relationship which, hopefully, can only get better. We are both strong, like tackling and getting around the pitch. Hopefully, we can stay fit and together for a long time.
"Even in training Jeff is putting in tackles, intercepting the ball and getting about me most days. It keeps us on our toes and is nice to have someone like that who breaks up play. I think we both do that well and that is why the partnership is working well.
"It gives a platform for Brooksy, Kingy, Callum and Wee Man to get all the plaudits."
