Name: Steve Cook
Position: Centre-Back

Prior to the beginning of this campaign, many pundits expected Bournemouth to be struggling towards the wrong end of the table and to be fully immersed in a relegation battle.

However, they are currently in 13th, level with Everton, and just two points short of the magic 40 points total, with eight games still left to play.

Their centre-back, Cook, has been a big part of their success this campaign, helping the club keeps a number of clean sheets, as well as scoring three goals – including two crucial ones against Southampton and Swansea in the last month.

Name: Charlie Daniels
Position: Left-Back

When Bournemouth signed Ipswich left-back Tyrone Mings in the summer, many Cherries fans would have expected Daniels to drop to the bench.

However, the defender instead kept his place, and has played the full season, picking up three goals and a number of assists to help the club to mid-table.

Name: Harry Arter
Position: Midfielder

It has been a tough campaign for the midfielder, who lost his daughter just before the clash with Manchester United at Dean Court, but he performed admirably in that game, and has done in many others this season to put himself in contention to be the club’s player of the year.

The all-action player can tackle, pass and provides a real energy in the middle of the park that has put opposition players under pressure.
