Howe: We're still in trouble

Bournemouth boss Eddie Howe insists the Cherries are still in a relegation battle following their 4-1 loss at Huddersfield.

Howe's side are 10th in the Premier League table, but only five points above the drop zone.

Swansea, West Ham and Newcastle all won at the weekend while Bournemouth are 19/20 to beat the Magpies in their next match on 24th February.

Howe said: "For me, we are still in a relegation battle. We know we always have been this season.

"There are many clubs involved, it's very tight and results like this don't help us, especially when you are playing teams in and around you.

"It's very important you don't lose but we didn't produce a good performance at all.

"Of course, we have other games to come and are in a good position, but it can change very quickly and what we have to guard against is any negative reaction from this game. We know how big the games are and will be ready for the last 11."
