Bournemouth

Howe expects players to learn from defeat

16th April 2018, 16:24 by Nick Harris

Bournemouth could not cope with the pace and ability of Liverpool's front three, according to boss Eddie Howe

Howe's men are by no means the first to fall foul of Liverpool's brilliant front three of Mohamed Salah, Sadio Mane and Roberto Firmino and the result will not matter as the season draws to a close and the Cherries will beat the drop again.

Defeat left Bournemouth six points clear of the relegation zone with four games remaining, starting with the visit of second-placed Manchester United to the Vitality Stadium on Wednesday.

Howe said: "For all our players, I thought it was a real learning experience and a chance to grow.

"These games are invaluable for our learning as a team to make sure we give better and continually improve."
