Grant Hanley should also be fully fit following illness, while changes are likely in midfield with Tom Trybull, Ibrahim Amadou and Marco Stiepermann waiting in the wings.
New arrivals Ondrej Duda and Lukas Rupp are both in contention to make their debut, with the former more likely to start in place of Kenny McLean.
Nathan Ake should revert to his usual centre-back berth and replace Simon Francis, though rumours of a return to Stamford Bridge persist.
Jefferson Lerma is likely to recover from a knee injury in time to feature, though Aaron Ramsdale is more touch and go following a minor hamstring strain.
Eddie Howe may well risk the keeper given the position his side are in and Mark Travers’ troubles against Watford, while Philip Billing and Diego Rico could also return.
