Cherries wins will come says Howe
Bournemouth boss Eddie Howe is keen for his players not to allow their morale to drop following a third successive defeat.
The Cherries lost to a last-gasp goal to Manchester United before a surprise reverse at Newcastle - with Arsenal's 2-1 win on the south coast on Sunday continuing a small drop in form.
Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang slid in to tuck home and seal the points after Joshua King had equalised for Bournemouth following a remarkable Jefferson Lerma own goal.
Despite the defeat, Howe says his players have to stay upbeat, which will not be easy with a trip to Manchester City up next.
"It was the same with Man United," Howe replied when asked if there was any consolation in running Arsenal close.
"We took them to the limit and came away beaten in that match. It was the same today, it is very important that the players' confidence level doesn't get affected by those two defeats.
"But we have had a very strong start to the season. It is important we don't overreact in these moments and keep doing what we are doing and know we will win again soon."
