Eddie Howe reckons his side deserved to pick up all three points against Watford this evening in what was a crazy game of Premier League football down on the South Coast.
A Troy Deeney brace gave Watford a 2-0 lead before the half-hour mark at the Vitality stadium, before Bournemouth pulled level with two goals in three minutes through Nathan Ake and Callum Wilson.
Watford’s Ken Sema restored the lead just a minute later, before influential Bournemouth star Ryan Fraser levelled the scores to make it 3-3 before the break.
The scores would remain that way until the full-time whistle, but speaking after the game, Bournemouth boss Eddie Howe said that he thought that his side did enough to win the game during the second half.
“We went 2-0 down and it looked like a big ask but fair play to the players. It was the ability to never give up and we should have won the game in the end. It was one of those games that if you stopped it at 3-3 it was bizarre,” Howe told the BBC.
“We had chances and they didn’t have many but they took them. It was frustrating second half because we should have won. We went all out to win today but it’s another point closer to where we want to be.”
The result leaves Watford in eighth on 29 points, with Bournemouth just two points behind in 12th.
