The Cherries were put through their paces ahead of Sunday's Premier League game with Aston Villa. 

Andoni Iraola led his team in training, with the squad in great spirits following a positive run of form. 

Lloyd Kelly was missing with a hamstring injury sustained in the win over Sheffield United but otherwise, there were no new concerns for Iraola. 

Emiliano Marcondes was pictured in training, having recently returned from a long-term ankle injury.

The cold weather ensured the players had to wrap up warm, with snoods and gloves seen amongst the squad.
