Bournemouth Had Been Out for Two Seasons, Yet They Are in the Fight for the Top Places
What it means for Bournemouth to be where they are after competing in the EFL Championship is very positive. And while they are not in first place by a long shot, their performance so far compared to other freshly-promoted teams is remarkable. The club had three wins, three draws, and three defeats on its ninth matchday.
One of the games that allowed them to win was against Aston Villa, who they beat convinvingly 2-0 with goals from Jefferson Lema and Kieffer Moore.
Against Nottingham Forest in a match full of goals that ended 3 – 2, Phillip Billing, Dominic Solanke, and Jaidon Anthony scored for the Cherries. What’s remarkable is that they started this match from behind, going into the break 0-2 in favor of the rival. But in the second half, three successive goals would give the victory to these players who knew how to return to the field with a cool head.
This scene was repeated again on the ninth matchday against Leicester, where they again started losing and came back with goals from Phillip Billing and Ryan Christie.
Bournemouth vs Everton will not be an easy game. Therefore, that same cool head that has allowed them the comebacks must be taken to the opponent’s field to take the away victory.
