Combined XI: AFC Bournemouth vs Sunderland

Six from us, five from them - it's just for fun!

GK: Jordan Pickford

A future England number one and one of our own - Pickford is a class act, and despite not yet managing to keep a clean-sheet for us he has been our star man.

RB: Adam Smith

Bournemouth have two underrated full-backs who can player either side of the central defenders in Charlie Daniels and Adam Smith.

CB: Lamine Kone

His attitude stinks but his ability is there for all to see.

CB: John O’Shea

A loyal servant to the club and one who we continue to be dependent upon.

LB: Charlie Daniels

100,000,000 times the defender Patrick Van Aanholt is.

RM: Jordon Ibe

Ibe impressed at Liverpool and now has the opportunity to progress with first-team football at Bournemouth.

CM: Jack Wilshere

Another player that has the chance to shine on the south-coast is Wilshere, who is looking to get his career back on track.

CM: Lee Cattermole

Oh how we’ve missed Cattermole in the middle of the park; our midfield is atrocious and lacks passion and commitment.

LM: Fabio Borini

Another player we’ve missed through injury is Borini - his tenacity on the wing and his eye for goal will be appreciated when he eventually returns to fitness.

ST: Callum Wilson

I’m surprised Wilson is yet to feature for England, he is strong and athletic and will be looking to establish himself in the Premier League now he is back to full fitness.

ST: Jermain Defoe

Five goals already this season for Defoe for the worst club in the country. Remarkable.
