The former England international was rested for the 1-0 midweek defeat at Watford having suffered a slight knock to his knee against Derby on Saturday.
Fellow midfielder Lasse Vigen Christensen looks set to miss out again, however, having sustained a hamstring injury against the Rams.
Fit-again full-backs Tim Hoogland (hernia) and Fernando Amorebieta (knee) should be involved again after they were named on the bench at Vicarage Road alongside striker Hugo Rodallega, who could return to the starting line-up after shaking off a leg injury.
A first win in five games means Bournemouth manager Eddie Howe is unlikely to make changes.
Matt Richie returned to the side in the 2-1 win over Wolves and is likely to keep his place in the side, although Ryan Fraser is an alternative on the bench.
Winger Marc Pugh experienced no after-effects to a knee injury suffered last weekend before being substituted, but Dan Gosling and Eunan O’Kane remain sidelined.
One player who will be missing for the Cherries is defender Miles Addison, who has joined Blackpool on loan after struggling for game time at Dean Court.
