After assessing Arsenal’s performances over the previous season, our team-by-team analysis continues with a look at Bournemouth.
We’ll compare the Cherries’ displays to the previous campaign and check out their chief goal threats and creators in 2016/17. We’ll also delve deeper into the performances of Josh King from Gameweek 22 onwards in light of the late-season output that made him a must-have for many Fantasy managers.
We will then look examine the lessons learned and assess how these influence our approach to Bournemouth’s assets for the new season.
In a successful campaign, Eddie Howe’s men improved upon their sixteenth place finish in 2015/16 to end the season in ninth position on 46 points, up from 40 points last term.
Bournemouth also increased their potency in the final third, rising from 45 goals scored to 55 – only six sides (the top five and Everton) found the net on more occasions.
