First Team

Team news: Three changes against Hatters


AFC Bournemouth AFC Bournemouth

Antoine Semenyo and Justin Kluivert both return to the AFC Bournemouth starting line-up for today’s Premier League encounter with Luton Town at Kenilworth Road (3pm kick-off).

They are two of three changes made by head coach Andoni Iraola as the teams renew rivalries following the Cherries’ extraordinary 4-3 win at Vitality Stadium just 24 days ago.

Semenyo and Kluivert came off the bench to have a huge impact in the midweek win against Crystal Palace, the Dutchman converting the Ghana international’s cross for the only goal.

A second-half double from Semenyo completed the Cherries’ remarkable comeback from 3-0 down against the Hatters last month with Dom Solanke and Illia Zabarnyi also on the scoresheet.

It was the first Premier League meeting between the clubs and only the third time in top-flight history that a team losing 3-0 at half-time had recovered to take maximum points.

Semenyo will be looking to become only the second Cherries player to score in three successive away games, matching a feat achieved by Joshua King in 2016/17.

The third change for the Cherries sees Milos Kerkez come back in with Dango Ouattara, Alex Scott and Philip Billing dropping to the bench.

Marcos Senesi makes a welcome return to the substitutes’ bench, the defender having missed the past four games due to a hamstring injury.

AFC Bournemouth: Neto, Kerkez, Cook, Kelly, Solanke, Christie, Smith, Tavernier, Kluivert, Semenyo, Zabarnyi.

Subs: Travers (g/k), Faivre, Ouattara, Scott, Hill, Senesi, Billing, Ünal, Aarons.

Luton Town: Kaminski, Hashioka, Mengi, Kaboré, Chong, Barkley, Burke, Doughty, Townsend, Clark, Morris.

Subs: Shea (g/k), Krul (g/k), Berry, Woodrow, Mpanzu, Johnson, Onyedinma, Nelson, Piesold.

Referee: Andrew Madley.
