Cape Town - A clearly delighted Eddie Howe praised Bournemouth's resilience after they were able to score three late goals to beat Liverpool 4-3 in a thrilling Premier League encounter on Saturday.

The Cherries were behind for most of the match and looked set for a fourth defeat in their last five league games at 3-1 down with just 15 minutes left on the clock.

However, a sensational end to the match saw the Cherries score three times to claim an unexpected and very impressive 4-3 win.

Howe admitted that Liverpool were by far the better team in the first-half and praise his side's ability to bounce back in the second period.

"Although our goalkeeper wasn't overworked with saves (in the first-half), their dominance of the game was quite evident," he told Sky Sports after the match.

"We had to dig deep, juggle things around a bit at half-time and came out a much better team."

One of the late goal scorers, Ryan Fraser, put in a stand out performance and the 22-year-old was named man of the match despite only being introduced in the 55th minute.

"I believe Ryan's an outstanding talent," Howe added. "He's been training very well for a number of weeks - he's deserved the opportunity he got today. The pleasing thing for me is that he's come on and taken it.

"He looked razor sharp, he had a big impact on the game and I'm delighted for him."
