Lerma absence will be a big blow - Gosling
Bournemouth playmaker Dan Gosling insists his team will miss Jefferson Lerma's presence in the middle in the coming weeks.
The 24-year-old was expected to start Wednesday's meeting with Arsenal but he is suspended for the clash.
The Colombia international suffered his 10th caution of the season in the draw with Wolves, meaning he now misses the next two games.
Eddie Howe's side will take on Manchester City on Saturday and Gosling admits his team will now struggle without him.
He told Bournemouth Echo: "His combative style of play will be a big miss for us. When you have a player like that, you almost expect bookings, but he's good on the ball as well.
"He finds passes, wins headers, has great energy and gets from box to box, and if he sticks at his English lessons he will be an even better player.
"He breaks up a lot of attacks and if you change that, he wouldn't be the same player. If he can time some of those tackles a bit better, maybe he would get away with eight bookings a season instead of 10, but he's been a big player for us and I'm sure he'll learn."
