AFC Bournemouth are managed by Eddie Howe who returned to the club for a second spell in 2012. The Cherries are currently enjoying their second season in the Premier League, having won promotion in 2015 after winning the Championship title.
Bournemouth set the football world alight throughout the 2014/15 season, in what proved to be the greatest campaign in the club's history. Boss Howe led the south coast outfit to the Championship title on the final day, meaning the Cherries leapt up to the Premier League - for the first time in their history - in style. The stunning achievement won Howe a plethora of individual honours, including the Football League Manager of the Decade award, while he went on to lead them to a respectible 16th place finish in their first season in the top-flight.
A mixed set of recent results has seen Bournemouth collect wins versus Liverpool, Stoke City, Hull City and Everton while suffering adverse results at Burnley, Arsenal, Sunderland and Middlesbrough. Draws against Tottenham Hotspur and Watford has seen them show mid-table form at best.
