A devastating blow to Lewis Cook's season

I was shocked by the news today that Leis Cook has been sidelined after suffering an anterior cruciate ligament injury following the match against Huddersfield. Lewis wasn't subbed in the match so it comes as a big surprise that Bournemouth will be without him for at least six months. It will surely encourage Eddie Howe to either recall Harry Arter or go into the market in January.
Lewis Cook is out for six t nine months!
I am not sure if Arter an be recalled as it is a season loan, but there could be something in the contract for such an event as this. But brining back Arter is maybe not the best thing for bournemouth or Cardiff. 

Lewis Cook was just getting some good games and the competition with Dan Gosling and Jefferson Lerma was going to be great for the Cherries. Suddenly the injury to Dan Gosling and his battle to get back fit becomes all the more important and Andrew Surman is now likely to have a busier December than he might have expected.

AFCB have certainly had bad luck with injuries and another cruciate ligament injury seems just unfair. We wish Lewis all the best though for a fast and perfect recovery.
