"I understand clearly there were reasons for the second half not being as good as the first, but still a good result, an important result", he said.

After an even opening, Bournemouth went mightily close to the first goal, as David Brooks was released into the left side of the penalty area and Alisson stopped the shot squeezing inside his near post.

'Callum has a slight hamstring issue, we don't think it's too serious, he's had a scan but of course he didn't make today and we'll wait and see whether he's back next week, ' Howe said before the match. We all have our own interests and aims.
