Eddie Howe confirms that Callum Wilson (groin) will be out for “a couple of weeks” but is hopeful that the Alexander Isak transfer will be completed in time for the Swede to be eligible to face Wolves.

“It’s not completed, we hope to get it done. Fingers crossed, there’s no guarantee with these things because we’re in other people’s hands but hopefully. With Callum’s injury, which we don’t believe to be serious, we’re hopeful that Callum will only be out for a couple of weeks… but naturally I think we reacted slightly off that.” – Eddie Howe

Elsewhere, Emil Krafth looks set for a spell on the sidelines with a knee injury picked up on Wednesday but Dan Burn (concussion), Ryan Fraser (groin) and Jamaal Lascelles (nose) should be fit.


Ben Davies (groin) is in contention to make a swift recovery after picking up an injury in midweek but Abdoulaye Doucoure (hamstring), Andros Townsend (knee), Dominic Calvert-Lewin (knee), Andre Gomes (muscle), Yerry Mina (ankle) and Ben Godfrey (leg) remain out.

“Tom Davies we hope is in contention, he had a small feeling in his groin in the warm-up before Fleetwood. Pulled out of that game but hopefully is in the squad.

“Doucoure is injured, Dominic Calvert-Lewin will train next week. Other than that I think we’re pretty much as we were.

“I think [Calvert-Lewin] is slightly ahead of schedule but we must be calm because we can’t push him at this stage. If he trains in the middle of next week will it make him available for Liverpool [in GW6]? That’ll be tough. But can we start to look at the games after that? Hopefully, if all goes according to plan.” – Frank Lampard
