LEWIS Cook has his eyes on a win at Chelsea on the final day to try and secure a top-half Premier League finish and with it cap a “real solid season”.

Cherries have more points than they have ever managed in a top-flight campaign, but slipped out of the top 10 with defeat at home to Brentford on Saturday.

Andoni Iraola’s men round off their campaign at Stamford Bridge on Sunday (4pm), knowing they are able to finish anywhere between 10th and 13th.

Brighton & Hove Albion are currently 10th, level on points with Cherries, but have a game in hand, against Chelsea on Wednesday, before hosting Manchester United at the weekend.

Crystal Palace and Wolverhampton Wanderers are the other sides still in with a chance of sealing a spot in the top 10.

“Beating the points (record) was amazing, but we’d love to finish in the top half, because I think that’s a real solid season if you can do that,” midfielder Cook told BBC Radio Solent.

“It’s something we’re looking to do and we’ll have to be on top form to do that.

“We beat our points tally, which is a massive positive from this season.

“We’ve got a nice project going on and we want to try and build and keep improving year on year.”

Cook was part of the only previous Cherries squad to finish a Premier League campaign in the top half, with Eddie Howe in 2016-17.

This season he has been a key part of Iraola’s side, making 32 top-flight appearances.

“I’ve really enjoyed it,” said the 27-year-old.

“I’ve played a lot of games and this position I’m playing at the moment is one I feel like is probably my best position.

“I’m just happy to be on the pitch. I’m just grateful to be in the position I am.”

Reflecting on defeat to Brentford, Cook added: “Obviously massively disappointed not to win the game.

“I feel like we’re good enough and we had spells where we could’ve put the game to bed.

“But they’re a dangerous team on counter-attack and we learned that (on Saturday).”

Having conceded to Bryan Mbeumo, Cherries equalised late on via a Dominic Solanke header and were pushing for a winner.

Asked if the team felt no fear at that point of losing the game, before Yoane Wissa’s stoppage-time strike, Cook said: “We didn’t and I think that might’ve cost us a little bit.

“They were very good on the counter and it cost us, so we’ve got to switch on and make sure that doesn’t happen, for 100 minutes.

“So it’s things to learn.”
