Bournemouth slipped to ninth in the table after a fourth successive defeat but the mood remains optimistic, says Tyrone Mings.
After what has been an excellent first few months Eddie Howe’s men have hit a blip in form but there is no need to panic, according to Mings, who says they are still looking ahead.
Defender Mings, who was recalled for his first league start of the season in the defeat to Manchester City, said he thought they got their tactics right against the Champions and claims the mood in the camp is a good one.
“If you look at the spirit of the group – that’s a massive thing,” he said. “I think the manager’s tactics gave us a platform to compete with them. “We were in the game for large periods so we are walking away slightly disappointed to have conceded three goals to three things we had worked on.”
