Howe praises Cherries bounce-back ability

A clearly delighted Eddie Howe praised Bournemouth's resilience after they were able to score three late goals to beat Liverpool 4-3 in a thrilling Premier League encounter on Sunday.

The Cherries were behind for most of the match and looked set for a fourth defeat in their last five league games at 3-1 down with just 15 minutes left on the clock.

However, a sensational end to the match saw the Cherries score three times to claim an unexpected and very impressive 4-3 win.

Howe admitted that Liverpool were by far the better team in the first half and praise his side's ability to bounce back in the second period.

"Although our goalkeeper wasn't overworked with saves (in the first half), their dominance of the game was quite evident," he told Sky Sports after the match.

"We had to dig deep, juggle things around a bit at half-time and came out a much better team."



One of the late goal scorers, Ryan Fraser, put in a stand out performance and the 22-year-old was named man of the match despite only being introduced in the 55th minute.

"I believe Ryan's an outstanding talent," Howe added. "He's been training very well for a number of weeks – he's deserved the opportunity he got today. The pleasing thing for me is that he's come on and taken it.

"He looked razor sharp, he had a big impact on the game and I'm delighted for him."
