Due to a fully healthy squad to pick from, Luton Town boss Nathan Jones has zero fitness concerns at all before this match.
Our feeling is that Bournemouth can and should stay in control for long periods of time and should be able to convert a few of the chances that they create.
Conversely, Luton Town won’t find it easy to score although we do think it’s probable that they will be hitting back at some stage, too.
Our selection here is for a controlled 3-1 win for Bournemouth when the full-time whistle blows.
