Eddie Howe demands Bournemouth fight through poor form
Bournemouth boss Eddie Howe has told his players to stick together and start fighting after four consecutive Premier League losses.
The Cherries have lost to Newcastle, Wolves, Spurs and Crystal Palace, conceding eight goals in the process after beating Manchester United 1-0 on 2 November.
Howe said: “There's no hiding place at this level, it is so tough and difficult, but the only way you will get there is with a collective and as a group we have to come out swinging and come out fighting.
“The Premier League is so tough and we now have two really tough games to come, but they are all difficult.
“We knew this was a big game, we knew how difficult it would be, but you have to rise to those challenges and find a solution to the problems you face.
“We have to do that now and we have to get a result as quickly as possible,” he added.
