AFC Bournemouth remained in the top league for five seasons after getting promoted to the English Premier League at the end of the 2014-15 season. The Cherries were in the top 10 clubs in the point table in the 2016-17 season during that period. In 2019-20, after a disastrous season, they were relegated back to the EFL Championship. They only won nine games and conceded 65 goals that season.
The following season in the Championship, they finished 6th. They were not able to fight for the promotion or the playoffs in the end. In the current season, Bournemouth is currently in the top position. There are having an impressive season under Scott Parker. They are the only side that hasn’t yet tasted a defeat in the Championship after eleven games. They have won seven games and drawn four games in total. An impressive stat when we consider the competition in the Championship. They have scored 18 goals and only conceded just eight goals. The lowest in the league. Scott Parker has been successful in maintaining the defensive structure of the team along with the attacking threat. Till the international break, the team played with a well-structured formation, and Scott successfully kept the winning shape for the team. The EFL betting on Bournemouth should start at the beginning of 2022.
The more formidable challenge for Parker and his team will begin when the matches restart after the international break. Because a team always finds it difficult to maintain the momentum they had before a break, the Championship is a league where the schedule is very compact. When the team has to play three games in a week, it makes everything challenging. November and December will be the busiest months in the league.
By the end of December, the standings of all the teams will be clear. It’s always during this month many teams try to pull together the results to climb up. It will be a dramatic month in the Championship, and it has been breathtaking in the past years. That’s where Scott Parker has to keep his team together and pass the test of December without any significant changes in their position. The main advantage of Bournemouth is their unbeaten run. It will be a massive boost for the remaining hunt for the promotion. Their consistency will be the key to promotion. They must keep the 3 point distance as it is with West Brom. The experience of Gary Cahill has made a real difference in the defence structure.
If the team can keep up with the intensity of the matches, then we will surely see the Cherries back in the English Premier League.
