Neil Warnock has made five changes to his Middlesbrough side for their meeting with Bournemouth at the Vitality Stadium – and fans have been quick to react on social media.

Boro were beaten 1-0 at Millwall before the international break, and the Teessiders have recalled Darnell Fisher, Sam Morsy, Neeskens Kebano, Nathaniel Mendez-Laing and Duncan Watmore to their starting XI.

Warnock will be without defender Dael Fry, though, who is missing with an injury.

Here’s how some Boro fans reacted on social media:

@jakemmfc: Not the lineup I was expecting. Worrying to have Fry missing, hope that's nothing serious! Should hopefully be a lot of movement in that front four as well. COME ON BORO! #UTB #Boro

@smoggyontour86: That’s more like it only issue is we don’t have a striker on pitch so here’s hoping Watmore can score a goal or two

@jackallisonnn: Surprised to see Sav and McNair tbh not complaining though

@turnergeorge99: Attacking. What I like to see

Middlesbrough fans.

@KwoshDj: Clearly Spence is paying the price of messing about with the ball and giving goals away. Happy with that team, but hopefully Fry has a slight injury.

@boroarmyfan1: Very good team. Wish Fry wasn’t injured

@studdy2k: Fry must be injured. Which is a massive loss, as we’ve looked awful at the back when he hasn’t been in the team. Other than that, looks good

@NahItsLyingTho: Good to see we're having a few attackers on the pitch now we're in dead rubber territory, still can't be tempted away from me DIY though so all the best boys, see you soon
