Cape Town - Bournemouth boss Eddie Howe was ecstatic to see his side record a good 1-0 victory over Everton on Saturday after two successive defeats.

Junior Stanislas netted the only goal against the Toffees after 23 minutes, with the Cherries having previously lost 3-2 to Preston North End in the EFL Cup after going down 4-0 to Manchester City.

After the match, a delighted Howe told the club's official website it was a "perfect response" from his side.

"It was a really good afternoon for us," he said. "From start to finish, we were magnificent.

"I am so pleased for the players because they have come out and responded in the right way.

"That's the only way to banish the memories of the two previous games. It really was a fantastic performance. The whole team did so well out of possession.

"We kept some outstanding players pretty quiet today. So it's not just the performance and results, it's who we have done against. That should be a huge lift for us.

"To win any game in the Premier League is tough. But we want to show the fans that we are giving everything to the cause. We did that today."
