AFC Bournemouth defender Steve Cook believes that the 3-3 draw with Arsenal will eventually look like a good point earned.
However the defender also confessed that right now it didn’t feel that way as the Cherries lost a 3-0 advantage following goals from Charlie Daniels, Callum Wilson and Ryan Fraser.
AFC Bournemouth also had a Harry Arter goal controversially disallowed by referee Michael Oliver, who would also go on to send off Cherries captain Simon Francis.
Cook told the Daily Echo…
“…It was close to being a complete performance, I thought we were outstanding up until 70 minutes, then the game really changed. We were 3-0 up and cruising to be honest, absolutely cruising.
“The first goal changed things, then conceding the second goal so quickly got them back in the game.
“The momentum swung, the red card happened and it was probably only a matter of time before they scored the equaliser…’
‘…Hopefully, come the end of the season it will look like a good point – although it doesn`t feel that way right now.”

‘3-3 was the result. And that’s a good result v Arsenal. To me, how you get there is slightly immaterial. Yes, they scored three in succession but so did we. Not many teams allow Arsenal to come back from 3-0 down because they are not good enough to go 3-0 up against them. – Join the conversation here.
