AFC Bournemouth’s season has just changed dramatically after Everton were handed a 10-point deduction for breaching financial fair play rules.
Everton have dropped down to 19th in the Premier League table, five points below the Cherries who have moved up to 16th place on nine points.
This points deduction has massively boosted Bournemouth’s chances of survival in the Premier League, as they stay four points clear of the drop zone.
Andoni Iraola’s side have struggled so far this season after many changes in the summer, however their form has recently picked up and culminated in a 2-0 home win over Champions League chasers Newcastle United.
Cherries will be hopeful of survival this season to mark Iraola’s first season in charge as a success after sacking Gary O’Neil in the summer.
Bournemouth’s next game is against 18th place Sheffield United as they aim to move further clear of the drop zone whilst Everton host high flying Manchester United at Goodison Park.
