However, the game isn’t completely pointless for Eddie Howe’s side as there is an opportunity to finish third and above Manchester United for the first time in Premier League history.

The 22-year-old was absent for Sunday’s defeat to Manchester City and will now undergo a period of rehabilitation. It’s feared the Frenchman could miss the beginning of next season.

Lampard’s men head to Old Trafford to face Man United on Thursday night before hosting the Magpies.
