BUR Vs BOU Fantasy Team Picks, Probable Playing 11, Injuries, Match Centre: a new era embarks to a strong start for Bournemouth.
After being relegated to the Championship last season, Bournemouth have taken matters into their own hands. There’s been a clear and strong approach towards making an immediate return to the Premier League with the side sparing no expense to retain their identity as a Premier League club.
It saw them part ways with their manager despite sitting in the annuls of the Championship. And it’s a decision which has unfolded in the club’s favour as well with the team reverting to winning ways.
The side will be looking to carry that momentum and confidence into today’s fifth round FA Cup tie as they took on a familiar opposition in the identity of Burnley.

Fantasy Team Picks
Asmir Begovic has fortified Bournemouth’s defence with him pulling off a string of saves for the club this season.
Giving him company is Diego Rico with the defender’s ability to canter up the park making him an integral player for Bournemouth.
Bournemouth on the other hand will see us indulge in the services of a trio. Although the club is set to switch things at the back today, the side’s typical defensive resolute and resillinace is set to stay intact.
It sees us opt for Phil Bardsley, Kevin Long and Erik Pieters.
In Dwight McNeil and Dale Stephens, Burnley are equipped with two players who can not only do the dirty work at the back but send the ball across the face of the goal as well.
Philip Billing scored at the weekend for the visitors to see him present us from the club.
Shane Long and David Brooks will hold the brunt of foraging a goal for the club. And the two are more than capable of cantering up the park and working their way past tight spaces to see both make a way into our team.
Burnley will see Jay Rodriguez complete our team for this one.
Captain And Vice-Captain
His ability to work the flanks sees Erik be our captain while Dwight is the vice-captain.
Butland, Coady, Kilman, Rayan, Saiss, Adama, Townsend, Eze, Moutinho, Neves, Zaha
