Eddie Howe could be without Benik Afobe for up-to a month after the Cherries striker picked up a hamstring injury while training with the DR Congo.
Afobe made an impressive start to his Bournemouth career when he arrived from Arsenal via Wolverhampton Wanderers. Three goals in his first 4 games helped Eddie Howe’s men secure seven crucial points but the 23-year-old – who is still learning his trade at the highest level – has struggled to recreate his early form and is now set for a spell on the sidelines. News broke late on Saturday and his absence afforded Lewis Grabban a rare Premier League start partnering Josh King up front. However, against a resurgent City side, the match was effectively over within 20 minutes although Grabban will benefit from his first 90 minutes for the club since re-joining from Norwich.
