Speaking to Sky Sports News after the match, Bournemouth boss Howe admitted that the margin of the 4-1 defeat is particularly hard to accept.

The Cherries' Junior Stanislas put the hosts ahead inside 10 minutes - moments after hitting the woodwork - however, a resurgent Spurs, who lost Harry Kane to an ankle injury midway through the first half, fought back via Dele Alli, a Son Heung-min brace and a last-minute header from Serge Aurier.

"Okay, he missed the chance but it was a really incisive counter-attack by us and it was good play".

"I think this season if you are going to say one think about Dele Alli - we know that he can score goals, he was fantastic a year ago - now he tries to come to feet and link up quite a lot". I was very pleased with the players and I thought we played with a little bit of naivety in the end chasing the match.

Spurs will be looking to bounce back from their disappointing Champions League exit when Mauricio Pochettino's side make the short trip to the south coast. We've got a huge game coming up next week.

So they need to recover their poise this afternoon, to keep on track for next season's Champions League and to prepare them for a taxing Cup quarter with Swansea next weekend.

"They are obviously a great team but not the style that we want to play".

Still to face three top-six sides, Bournemouth had thought they were able to earn three crucial points against Leicester City last time out, only to be undone by a late leveller from Riyad Mahrez during injury time. The way we want to play is that we want to show what we are here for, and we believe it is the right way.
