Gosling out for Reds encounter
Bournemouth will head into Saturday's early game in the Premier League against Liverpool without midfielder Dan Gosling.
The Cherries learned the devastating news on Thursday that midfielder Lewis Cook will be out for the remainder of the Premier League season with a knee injury picked up against Huddersfield Town.
That is not manager Eddie Howe's only concern in the middle of the park, with Gosling still struggling with a knee injury and will miss the arrival of the Reds at the Vitality Stadium.
Howe, who has no other injury concerns, has admitted the schedule is a tough one for his side but is hopeful they can get a positive result against title-challengers Liverpool at the weekend.
"It's that kind of relentless schedule now where it's game after game. Let's try and use [the win over Huddersfield] to give us the confidence to perform well against Liverpool," he told reporters.
