Bournemouth – Season Preview

Nickname: The Cherries
Stadium: Vitality Stadium (Capacity 11,329)
Manager: Scott Parker (ENG)
Last Season: 2nd (Championship)

Notable Transfers

Joe Rothwell (Blackburn Rovers) Free Gary Cahill (Released) Free
Ryan Fredericks (West Ham United) Free Robbie Brady (Preston North End) Free
One to Watch: Dominic Solanke

If Bournemouth are to avoid an immediate return to the Championship, they will surely need striker Dominic Solanke to consistently produce the goods in attack. The 24-year-old bagged an impressive 29 goals in the Championship last term and a return of around half of that tally in the top flight could go a long way towards keeping his side afloat.

Style of Play

Predicted Formation: 4-3-3

Manager Scott Parker largely deployed a 4-3-3 system during the club’s promotion winning campaign, though this often resembled more of a 4-2-3-1 with Phillip Billing playing in a traditional No.10 role behind marksman Dominic Solanke. Lewis Cook and Jefferson Lerma will form a double pivot in midfield to give the Cherries stability and the attacking emphasis will be in wide areas, with Ryan Christie and Jaidon Anthony using their strong pace to full advantage.

First Five Fixtures

Aston Villa (H) Bournemouth have won their last three meetings against Villa dating back to 2015.
Man City (A) Six of the last seven meetings have generated over 2.5 goals.
Arsenal (H) Bournemouth have won just one of the clubs’ 12 meetings, losing nine.
Liverpool (A) The Cherries have failed to score in five of their last six games against the Reds.
Wolves (H) Bournemouth have claimed just one point from the sides’ four top flight meetings since 2018.

Bournemouth Prediction: 20th

Scott Parker did a tremendous job to guide Bournemouth back to the Premier League last term, but the 41-year-old will have it all to do to prevent a repeat of the relegation he suffered as Fulham boss during the 2020/21 campaign. To all intents and purposes, the Cherries squad simply doesn’t look strong enough to compete at this level and Parker hasn’t been backed by the club during the summer transfer window. A nightmare start, including games against Liverpool and Man City, should put Bournemouth well and truly on the back foot from the off.

Will the Cherries be outclassed at this level?

Bournemouth to be relegated: 1.60
