AFC Bournemouth midfielder Andrew Surman still insists that the Cherries are targetting a new points club record in the top flight of English football.
The Cherries are currently on a run of one victory in their last nine Premier League outings.
Of those nine games, AFC Bournemouth have lost four times, to Huddersfield Town, Tottenham Hotspur, Liverpool and Manchester United.
They have somewhat stumbled towards 38 points, a tally that is likely secure their status in the Premier League for a fourth successive season.
But the target is to beat the 2016/17 campaign tally of 46 points.
That can be done if the Cherries can win their final three games of the season, starting away to Southampton, before the home game against Swansea City and ending away to Burnley.
Surman told the Daily Echo…
“Games come thick and fast and we want to finish on a positive. We don’t want the season to fizzle out and survive but not really give a good account of ourselves. The next game is going to be huge for us.
“We set out our stall to beat last season’s points total and that has been the aim all season. We still have that chance if we could win the final three games.
“We need to make sure we are bang at it against Southampton and don’t think we are safe. We have to keep striving for that better points total and that has to be our motivation now.”
Tinpot Club said…
It’s obvious how they will try to play against us. Just like it was obvious how Huddersfield would play against us.
Just hope we prepare properly for this game. No early gifts and as the game goes on and they get more desperate, we need to use this to our advantage. – Join the conversation.
