Bournemouth boss Eddie Howe has lamented his sides’ lack of cutting edge during their loss to Tottenham. The Cherries had chances before Spurs scored the first goal thanks to a deflected Christian Eriksen strike and from there Bournemouth collapsed.
They ended up going down 5-0 to Spurs, who have now scored 11 in two games, while Howe’s Bournemouth are still embarking on a poor run, consisting of seven defeats in their last nine games.

And Howe was left to ponder what might have been following the result which now leaves them 11th in the table. “It was a strange game and we had some really good moments at the start. We had a couple of very presentable opportunities, which we didn’t take,” Howe told the club website. “The first goal, it was a big deflection from distance and the goalkeeper could do nothing about it. We never truly recovered and we conceded a couple of poor goals from there. “It was a bizarre game, I’m sure we’ll look back at it and find some good things to take away but ultimately we’re disappointed to lose.”
