Bournemouth boss Eddie Howe has urged his team to learn their lessons before they have to play the top teams in the Premier League. The Cherries are fifth in the table after three games but Howe believes his team will eventually get caught out if they do not improve.
Bournemouth have been forced to come back from behind on two occasions so far this season but they have picked up four points from their games against West Ham and Everton.
The Toffees were 2-0 up before goals from Joshua King and Nathan Ake but Howe insists the bigger teams in the Premier League will punish them for their mistakes.
“Certainly, we don’t want to put ourselves in that situation continually because we know against the better teams it’s harder to come back,” Howe told reporters.
“When we are at our best, we are very much on the front foot and very aggressive. It’s not like we are sitting back, waiting to concede and then we’ll attack.”
Bournemouth will be looking to improve when they take on Chelsea at Stamford Bridge on Saturday.
