Experienced duo passed fit for opener

Jermain Defoe and Steve Cook are available for Bournemouth's Premier League opener at West Bromwich Albion but Junior Stanislas is out.

Summer signing Defoe can make his second debut for the Cherries after the England forward completed a free transfer move from Sunderland.

Stanislas has been ruled out for a month with a nagging groin problem, for which the midfielder underwent an operation to cure over the summer.

Goalkeeper Asmir Begovic and defender Nathan Ake are in contention following their respective moves from Chelsea, while forward Callum Wilson continues his long-term recovery from a serious knee injury.

Provisional Squad: Begovic, Daniels, Ake, S Cook, Francis, L Cook, Fraser, Gradel, Arter, Ibe, Defoe, Boruc, A Smith, Mings, Pugh, Gosling, Surman, Afobe.
