Bournemouth boss Eddie Howe frustrated after West Ham draw

Bournemouth boss Eddie Howe had mixed emotions after their 1-1 draw at London stadium.

Ryan Fraser put Bournemouth ahead with an angled finish on 71 minutes. West Ham, though, were level just two minutes later through substitute Javier Hernandez.

Howe said, "We're on a good run at the moment, unbeaten runs are difficult in the Premier League, we know that.

"It was a tough game, particularly with West Ham in very good form. It was a tight game and we're disappointed that we took the lead as you back yourself to win from that position.

"We grew into the game, I thought we were slow out the traps but it wasn't a great start from us and we did well not to concede.

"We scored a great goal, a really well worked goal but the big disappointment for us was not to win.

"It's frustration as we'd done so well up the other end, then the nature of their goal was hugely disappointing, we didn't attack the ball well enough."

On goalscorer Fraser, he added: "Ryan has been outstanding for us, he's hitting the net regularly and for attacking players that is massive. I'm delighted with him, he's in great form."
