After the opening ten games of the 2018/19 Premier League campaign, AFC Bournemouth sit in sixth place in the top tier of English football.
It is AFC Bournemouth’s finest start to a Premier League season since promotion from the Championship in 2015.
The Cherries are just one single point behind Chelsea, Arsenal and Tottenham Hotspur.
Looking down the table and AFC Bournemouth are five points clear of eighth-placed Everton, six clear of Manchester United and 13 points ahead of Southampton.
The three points at Craven Cottage pushed Fulham into the relegation zone with AFC Bournemouth 15 points better off than their Saturday hosts.
AFC Bournemouth now push on into November and December, a period that on paper could look rather daunting if they hadn’t been finding points and confidence during the opening few months of the season.
Arsenal, Manchester City, Liverpool, Tottenham and Manchester United (twice) are all to come over the next ten Premier League fixtures.
AFC Bournemouth manager Eddie Howe told afcb.co.uk…
“Its been a great start, I’m really pleased with how the players have done this season. We’re in a good place and confidence is high but we can’t look too far ahead. We go into a cup game on Tuesday and then into a big one with Manchester United next weekend.
“The expectation I place on myself every season is very high. I’m very pleased, but there’s still a long way to go.
I know the wish is 40 points, but the average over the years is 36/37.
17 points from 20 games..Even Saints could get that…or maybe not. – Join the conversation, click here.
