Bournemouth win is chosen as best away performance
Our win at Bournemouth, when we came from a goal behind to win 3-1, has been voted our best away performance of the season from a collection of eleven wins and draws.
For the best home performance, the 2-1 win against Spurs was the clear winner, but this time there were, for much of the time the vote was running, four candidates with the remaining seven only mustering four votes between them.
The 0-0 draws against İstanbul Başakşehir, Southampton and Watford didn’t win a single vote and that was also the case for the 1-1 draw at Aberdeen and the first away Premier League win of the season at Cardiff. The 0-0 draw at Leicester picked up one point while the first game of 2019 at Huddersfield won three votes.
That left the top four with Brighton coming in fourth with an 18% share of the vote. That was bettered by two superb 2-2 draws at the homes of top six clubs and these two were separated by only five votes.
What was almost a win at Manchester United ended, for a second successive season, with the score at 2-2 and that was third with 23% of the vote.
Our last points on the road secured the top two places. The final point came on Easter Monday at Chelsea and this 2-2 result, the day we supposedly played anti-football, won 24% of the vote but the winner, with 35% of the vote was that win at Bournemouth when we had to recover from an early Ashley Barnes own goal. Chris Wood quickly got us back in it with Ashley Westwood scoring within a couple of minutes of that, and Barnes himself got the third on a day when we outplayed the home side.
