Speaking to the media on Thursday, Eddie Howe was under no illusions with regards to how tough AFC Bournemouth’s match will be against Tottenham Hotspur on Saturday.
AFC Bournemouth manager Eddie Howe has been full of praise for winger Jordon Ibe and is excited by the glimpses of potential he has shown in a Cherries shirt so far, despite the new signing coming in for criticism from some quarters.
The 21-year-old arrived from Liverpool in the summer for a club record £15million, but has struggled to make a real impact in the first team so far.
AFC Bournemouth manager Eddie Howe reflected on a disappointing day and put his sides 3-1 defeat to local rivals Southampton down to his side lacking in the physical department, perhaps down to the fact that the Cherries had played three Premier League games in eight days.
Eddie Howe was all smiles in his post-match press conference on Tuesday night after his AFC Bournemouth side defeated the current Premier League champions Leicester City 1-0 at The Vitality Stadium.
Eddie Howe’s 300th game in charge of AFC Bournemouth was one that he will never forget as his side recovered from 3-1 down to defeat Liverpool 4-3 at The Vitality Stadium to produce one of the Premier League‘s greatest ever comebacks.
The visitors were utterly dominant as they led 2-0 at half-time, thanks to Sadio Mane and Divock Origi, and they looked to be on course for a routine win when Emre Can put the Reds 3-1 in front.
However, Cherries substitute Ryan Fraser produced a Man of the Match performance to inspire his side’s extraordinary comeback. He won a penalty which Callum Wilson converted and scoring the hosts’ second goal before efforts from Steve Cook and Nathan Ake sealed a remarkable comeback on the South Coast.
