Bournemouth fans remain optimistic of surviving relegation as the 2016-17 Premier League football season draws to a close.
The south coast side are hovering dangerously above the drop zone with less than 10 points separating them and the bottom three sides.
Just two wins in 2017 has put the Cherries at risk of relegation but a recent four-game unbeaten run has slightly eased these fears of suffering the drop. Nevertheless, for the past three months it has been a very realistic possibility as the team struggled to claim points.
Despite the poor results, Bournemouth fans remain optimistic that Eddie Howe can guide the club to a survival after coming through a tricky spell but there is still work to be done to ensure their Premier League status for at least one more year.
