Bournemouth’s King faces fitness test ahead of Arsenal game

Bournemouth striker Joshua King has recovered from an ankle injury but faces a late fitness test to be in contention for Sunday’s Premier League clash against Arsenal, manager Eddie Howe said on Friday.

King, who has started nine league games scoring four goals this season, aggravated an ankle issue in Bournemouth’s goalless draw with Southampton last month, but has since resumed training with the squad.

“Joshua King has improved and trained with the group and we’ll be excited if he is fit,”

Howe told a news conference.Howe said his squad was in a better position injury-wise than after their 2-1 defeat at Newcastle United before the international break.

“We had a number of players with knocks…The break has given us the chance to nurse our players and we’ll look at them all and assess their fitness ahead of Sunday,” he added.
