Bournemouth boss Eddie Howe was relieved to scrape a 1-0 win over Tottenham but says playing with two extra men did not help their cause.
The Cherries earned a first ever league win over Spurs but Howe does not think his side were helped by the two red cards that turned the game on its head.
Spurs duo Son Heung-min and Juan Foyth both saw red either side of half time but Bournemouth had to wait until stoppage time to grab the winning goal thanks to Nathan Ake.

Playing with two extra men should be seen as a huge advantage, but Howe did not see it that way, and felt his side struggled with the extra numbers. “It changed the game completely,” he said. “We were suddenly dominating the ball and I don’t think we did it particularly well with the advantage we had. “It looked like we were going to run out of time to win the game, but luckily we have popped up with the late goal. “I didn’t see Jefferson Lerma’s involvement in the first red card, I just saw the reaction and unfortunately that has to be a red card. “And the second one, the boy hasn’t gone in to do any damage but he was high and the referee didn’t have any option.”Copyright © 2020 Completesports.com All rights reserved.
