Bournemouth’s clash with Watford this evening could go down as the game of the season.
A stunning six goals were scored in the first-half – including four goals in six minutes – with the best of the lot being Ryan Fraser’s strike to make it 3-3 just before the break.
Forget Liverpool and Man City; it’s the battles between the mid-table teams that we’re excited about.
Having pulled back from two goals down early-on in the match, Bournemouth were clearly in the hunt for another equaliser before halftime.
So on the 40th minute, the Cherries started another attack almost straight from kick-off, by passing out from their defence between Nathan Ake and Dan Gosling before Steve Cook picked out the run of Junior Stanislas on the right wing.
Stanislas then fired a low cross into the centre which was dummied THREE times by the three on-rushing attackers of David Brooks, Callum Wilson and Joshua King, before the ball finally runs into the path of Fraser to drive home.
It was a simply exquisite team goal.
What’s more, before his goal, Fraser was on-hand to set-up the Cherries second goal, meaning the Scotland international now has nine assists to his name this season, level with Eden Hazard.
It’s no surprise then, that he’s become a bit of a Dream Team favourite lately, with over 100 points to his name already.
