Bournemouth boss Howe upbeat despite heavy Spurs defeat

Bournemouth boss Eddie Howe was upbeat in defeat to Tottenham.

Howe felt that Callum Wilson's disallowed goal should have stood in the defeat.

With the game finely poised at 2-1, Wilson had the ball in the net for an equaliser but referee Mike Dean ruled out the strike.

Despite that and the four goals against his side, Howe was pleased with his side's performance against the Champions League chasers.

He said: "We started strongly and it was an intense period for both sets of players.

"I thought we gave everything, the game was a very quick pace but ultimately they were too good.

"For me, the scoreline didn't reflect the way that we played and we were right in it until the last ten minutes."

On the disallowed goal, Howe added: "I thought it was very very soft from the referee, there was minimal contact from my perspective.

"I haven't seen it back yet but that was my first thought.

"We were 2-1 down at the time and it had a huge bearing on the result."
