Bournemouth will have a more familiar frontline available when they face Chelsea in GW10.
England international Jermain Defoe was unable to start the last two games due to a hamstring complaint and he was only able to come on as a second-half sub in the game before that away to Spurs. However, Eddie Howe said he expects the striker to be fit for Chelsea. The same can't be said of Josh King or Ryan Fraser. The former missed last weekend's win over Stoke through illness whilst Fraser picked up a knock in the Carabao Cup win over Boro, where his corners caused a lot of trouble for the opposition. Both men are doubts for GW10. Tyrone Mings and Brad Smith remain absent too for the Cherries. Oct 27 - 1:51 PM
