David Wagner’s Huddersfield Town side travel to the south coast looking to return to winning ways against Eddie Howe’s AFC Bournemouth at the Vitality Stadium on Tuesday 4 December; 7:45pm kick-off.

Wagner and his players will be hoping they can bounce back with a win against The Cherries following Saturday’s 2-1 home defeat to Brighton & Hove Albion.

Bournemouth currently sit ninth in the Premier League table, after an impressive start to the 2018/19 season.

However, the hosts come into the game on the back of a 3-1 defeat away to league leaders Manchester City.

Howe has been the man in the dugout for The Cherries since 2012 with the former Bournemouth defender remarkably guiding the Club from League 1 to the Premier League during his second managerial spell in charge of the Dorset side.

The corresponding fixture saw AFC Bournemouth ensure the three points remained on the south coast thanks to a 4-0 win last November.

Key Players - FPL Form

Callum Wilson - 4.3

Callum Wilson began his career with Coventry City and spent five years at the Ricoh Arena before making the move to the south coast. Wilson has found the net 51 times and grabbed 22 assists in his 131 games for the Cherries. His goalscoring talent saw him receive his first England call-up in November 2018 with Wilson finding the net on his debut in a friendly win over the United States.

Ryan Fraser - 3.0

Ryan Fraser signed for Bournemouth in 2013 after spending three seasons with Aberdeen in the Scottish Premier League. The 24-year-old has played a key role in Bournemouth’s successful start to the 2018/19 season with the winger contributing three goals and six assists. Fraser made his international debut for Scotland in 2017 and scored his first goal for his country in a UEFA Nations League victory over Albania in November 2018.

David Brooks - 2.5

David Brooks is a fairly new member of the Bournemouth squad after only joining the Club from Sheffield United in July 2018. Brooks has adapted well to Premier League football and the 21-year-old has featured 13 times for the Cherries in the league; scoring three goals and providing the one assist. The attacking midfielder made his international debut for Wales in November 2017 and has gone on to make none appearances in total for the Dragons.
