No fresh concerns for Bournemouth

24th December 2018, 14:47 by Gareth Freeman

Bournemouth manager Eddie Howe has no fresh injury or suspension concerns ahead of the trip to Tottenham on Boxing Day.

Lewis Cook, Dan Gosling and Adam Smith (all knee) all remain sidelined but Howe has no new worries following the win over Brighton last time out.

Skipper Simon Francis and striker Callum Wilson each played the full 90 minutes against Albion following respective groin and hamstring injuries and will be available on Wednesday.

Ryan Fraser could be handed a starting spot after being restricted to a substitute appearance against Brighton because of a calf problem.

Howe has been suggested as a potential successor to Spurs counterpart Mauricio Pochettino ahead of the clash at Wembley, with Pochettino linked with a possible summer move to Manchester United.

The Bournemouth boss has dismissed the speculation, however, and insists he is fully focused on his current job.

"Tottenham have an outstanding manager who is doing an unbelievable job," he said. "I do not pay it any attention whatsoever. It has got absolutely no relevance to me.

"I always manage like I'm going to be here for the next 100 years. It is absolutely foolish of me to think of anything other than this club. I am absolutely committed 100% to every minute here."
