Eddie Howe Believes Scoreline Flattered Tottenham Following Bournemouth's 4-1 Defeat

Junior Stanislas opened the scoring for Eddie Howe's men 17 minutes into the encounter at the Vitality Stadium before the Cote d'Ivoire worldwide provided an assist for Dele Alli's equaliser in 35th minute.

The loss leaves the Cherries winless in four, but the Englishman was pleased with his outfit's performance and felt the scoreline did not accurately reflect the true tale of the contest.

"It was a really high-speed game, a lot of energy from both teams", he told Sky Sports.

"We competed, we gave everything into the match physically".

"We started really well". We were on the front foot. We conceded an early goal but it was a massive three points for us. We caused them problems in behind with the physicality of our two strikers.

It was Pochettino's 150th league win as a manager but a rare recent defeat for his counterpart Eddie Howe, whose side had been beaten just once in their past 10 league fixtures - only Tottenham losing fewer in that period.

"When you get the lead you're looking to protect that and enhance it if you can".

Those changes could have cost Spurs, when they find themselves behind inside the first ten minutes of the game, with Junior Stanislas finding the back of the net.

He added: "We need wins and as quickly as possible".

We don't want to do disservice to Bournemouth, who have found a place in mid-table and should avoid relegation this season, but there are worse games that Dier could miss. Barcelona did it and so many others did in the way that we want to play. "I am proud of the players efforts today".
