They only picked up 2 points from their first 4 games, with two goalless draws against Southampton and Brighton, and two 0-2 defeats to Arsenal and Manchester United. They are currently in the relegation zone with 16th place and a goal difference of minus four.
Bournemouth coach, Andoni Iraola, admitted that his team faced a big challenge to survive in the Premier League. He said that his team had to work hard and be confident to face strong teams like Chelsea. He also realized that his team had to improve their effectiveness in front of the opponent’s goal.
