Stanislas is a top option for Turf Moor mission

It has been a difficult road for Junior Stanislas to get back to playing football. He has missed half of the season, but is now back and refreshed and made a cameo appearance at Sheffield United. Now he could find himself a little more in the picture for selection and visiting one of his old grounds may be the inspiration he needs to hit top form.
Junior could be hyped up more than most for a visit to Turf Moor.
Junior spent a couple of seasons at Burnley and it was Eddie Howe who took him there, before resigning him for AFC Bournemouth. The winger is perhaps one of the least seen players on pitch these days, but on his day he can win games and Eddie Howe needs match winners more than ever now.
The battle Stanislas has will be with Harry Wilson, who hasn't done much wrong in his short time at the Cherries. Against Sheffield United, Harry was one of the quieter players so it wasn't a big surprise when he was subbed first. Stanislas had to wait for Ryan Fraser to come off, but at least he got a few minutes in an away game. It may be that Eddie wants to give him a few more minutes next time.

Stanislas is quick and crosses well. He could be a good supply route for Callum Wilson and he is another free kick specialist like Harry Wilson. So it wont be such and easy decision for Howe as to who to start with and the fact that Junior is so well acquainted with Turf Moor could mean that he is a surprise starter for the next game.
