AFC Bournemouth manager Eddie Howe continued to take the positives from the Cherries early season performances.

The Cherries dominated the game against the former Premier League champions, with limited attempts on the Cherries goal throughout the 90 minutes.

That was in contrast to a number of chances created by AFC Bournemouth with Jermain Defoe and Marc Pugh unable to take their opportunities in front of goal.

Howe told

‘We started really well and we did well to maintain that in the match.

‘We created a number of clear cut chances and on another day we score a few.

‘I’m very pleased with the team’s performance and our defensive shape. Our first clean sheet of the season is a big moment for us massive for us.

‘There are positives but we’re disappointed not to have won the game.

Your Say…

100% effort.
It was attackers v defenders.

A boxing ref would have stopped that after 25 minutes.
Not going to blame the ref for the 3rd minute certain penalty. Unsighted as was the lino.

Lewis Cook was Ian Bishop today, and there is no higher praise than that.

A great performance, but goals win games.

Hell, I was on edge to the end in case Leicester nicked it.

Happy and disappointed in one!

See you at Wembley!
