It looked like we were going to meet Bournemouth on Saturday when they were in top form.
The Cherries had won four games (two wins were against Arsenal and Chelsea) and drawn two in their six games before they were at Huddersfield on February 11th.
That was 14 points out of a possible 18, but then they were surprisingly beaten 4-1 by the Terriers.
Bournemouth are currently in 10th place in the league table, and if we beat them we go above them on goal difference, and we would then have 31 points from our 28 games.
