AFC Bournemouth manager Eddie Howe told the BBC

“We gave it a go. We started really well and looked a threat on the counter-attack. Their two goals came from the transition. They punished us when it counted.

“We made a mistake for the first goal, and the second was similar – we had the ball, seconds later we are conceding. We gave everything to it but came away with nothing.

“Losing Steve Cook was a big moment, and Phil [Billing] couldn’t really move at the end. We couldn’t have a full assault at them.”

When your team gives it’s all, there cannot be one word of complaint.
AFC Bournemouth closed Liverpool down, gave them no space, everything that was required.

Had them on the racks, a goal up through Callum Wilson, nearly 2 with Nathan Ake’s header…..Then the sloppiness.

Dear oh dear Jack Simpson. Thought he was Beckenbauer. Shocking.

We were never out of this game.
A bit of brilliance with James Milner’s clearance from Ryan Fraser’s lob.

Referee Tierney played his usual blinder, along with a linesman who gave an offside just as a corner was about to be given. Just shocking.

The expected result today, but what could have been?

3 points a must versus Crystal Palace.

Your say…

Expected a Champions performance to blow us away.
Then the game started, and it turns out the Champions to-be are full of rust, Watford was not a one-off.
Only we couldn’t capitalise, a) because we miss too many chances, and b) because our bench is Championship level. – Join the conversation, click here.
