20-year-old Jordon Ibe is thought to be the player to replace Jack Wilshere as Bournemouth line up against Arsenal on Sunday.

As Jack’s on loan with the Cherries this season, he’ll be unable to play against his parent team at the Emirates this weekend. Therefore, manager Eddie Howe has to find an alternative player, which appears to be Jordon Ibe.

Ibe has already made 11 appearances this season so is far from a fringe player. However, he has been been out recently through illness so won’t be quite as fresh as Wilshere, who has been getting full matches for the Cherries.

He was in training though, so is expected to be the man to step in on Sunday in place of Wilshere.

Wilshere has quickly turned into one of Bournemouth’s main midfielders since slowly returning to match fitness and Howe has acknowledged he’ll be a huge miss on Sunday. It remains to be seen just how much of a miss he’ll be.
