After the biggest victory in the history of AFC Bournemouth - in manager Eddie Howe's words - last weekend at Stamford Bridge, the club can approach Saturday evening's home clash with Manchester United in great confidence.
Bournemouth's win at Chelsea was a classic underdog victory - they defended deep, they rode their luck, they pounced with a late set-piece. But they also showcased some good football throughout the game, particularly when playing quick one-twos through the Chelsea midfield and into attack. They're unlikely to deviate significantly from this approach here.
Indeed, a similar performance against United might reap rewards. Louis van Gaal's side have struggled to break down deep defences this season, and find themselves playing against deep defences frequently, partly because they move the ball forward so slowly, giving the opposition plenty of room to get themselves back into a good defensive shape.
Bournemouth were guilty of being too naive in the opening weeks of the season, giving their opponents too much space to play through midfield. Now, they've matured and know how to frustrate opponents.
Howe is unlikely to make significant changes from the side which defeated Chelsea - he simply doesn't have enough options to do so - but matchwinner Glenn Murray, the only substitute used last weekend, will be hoping for a start. Nevertheless, Joshua King is probably a more useful counter-attacking player, and will hope to combine with Junior Stanislas, who moves inside dangerously from the left flank.
Bournemouth were cautious with their attacking, but tended to commit men forward in waves. Both Harry Arter and Dan Gosling would spring forward suddenly from central midfield, while Adam Smith and Matt Ritchie combined dangerously down the right.
Down the flanks is where Bournemouth are most likely to cause United trouble, because an injury crisis means Van Gaal is likely to field Guillermo Varela and Ashley Young at full-back. Young, in fairness, has adjusted well to being used as a full-back and has rarely been exposed, but Varela's inexperience might be problematic against a powerful runner like Stanislas.
Probable centre-back duo Paddy McNair and Daley Blind isn't the most convincing combination either.
United are, at least, likely to boss the midfield battle. Expect Michael Carrick to control the game and Morgan Schneiderlin to move forward more - Bournemouth will probably attempt to press in the opening stages, but United should be good enough to move the ball around them.
Bournemouth's main worry will be the prospect of Juan Mata finding space either side of Andrew Surman. His lovely assist for Anthony Martial in the midweek defeat to Wolfsburg shows the value of using those two players in central roles, and while Bournemouth ended up playing deep against Chelsea, they were prone to Eden Hazard's pace in behind in the opening stages. Martial will test them here.
Jesse Lingard and Memphis Depay will threaten from wide areas, though both could do with dribbling more and committing opposition defenders - United have been guilty of playing in front of the opposition too much this season.
Overall, this should be a low-scoring match - United don't concede or score many, while Bournemouth will probably sit back and hope for another one-goal game.
