Has Harry Wilson just got the scoring knack?

I was pleased as many Bournemouth fans to see Harry Wilson pop up with another goal at Southampton. Yet, I can't say he had a particularly good game. He found it hard to get involved at times, and yet he comes alive when he sees a chance to maybe score. Bournemouth perhaps need the odd player like that who is instinctive at arriving in the box just at the right time.
Harry Wilson may need work on his all-round game
but in front of goal he is exceptionally sharp.
What I like about Harry Wilson is that he gets his head up at the right time and assesses where he needs to get to when Bournemouth's players are making an attack. He may be a bit on the selfish side when it comes to scoring, but I don't necessarily think that is a weakness in a team that is renowned for playing good attacking football and not always having the players to pull the trigger when they really should or slip a pass in when a player is in a better position.

Harry has to find his way in this team. He perhaps doesn't know where he quite fits in terms of what he can contribute most. Arguably he has been lacking in generally making sure he keeps moves going and making himself available for the ball, even when he is not in positions where he can immediately hurt the opposition. He is clearly a player that wants to get goals and he has a knack for it.


I suppose he is rather like David Brooks in that respect and I think Eddie Howe will have a really tough few games to decide who plays when both players are fit and available for selection. At the moment, there is perhaps not much competition for Harry Wilson on the right. And while his form is bound to be a bit up and down as he gets used to his new team-mates, I have a good feeling that he will be a player that AFCB will be very reluctant to hand back to Liverpool at the end of his loan deal.
