Bournemouth boss Howe: Difficult game for Wilshere

Bournemouth boss Eddie Howe defended Jack Wilshere after their thrashing at Manchester City.

Wilshere failed to impress on his first start since joining the Cherries on loan from Arsenal. He conceded the free-kick which led to City's opener and was substituted after 68 minutes.

Howe said: "It was difficult for Jack. We want to see Jack in their half and in the final third but we didn't get there enough so to see his best qualities was impossible today.

"But the minutes will have done him the world of good and once he fully understands how we play and what we want him to do, I think he will be an excellent player for us."
