​Howe excited for Bournemouth midfielder Cook

Bournemouth manager Eddie Howe has expressed his excitement at Lewis Cook being fit again.

The 23-year-old midfielder is a big boost to the Cherries as they look to avoid relegation in the last few months of the season.

He was back in the starting lineup for their 2-2 draw with Chelsea on Saturday.

Speaking about the England international, Howe told the Daily Echo: "He did really well. I was very pleased.

"Especially in the second half, I think he came into the game. He showed his qualities in the spell that we were on top – his technical ability really shone out.

"He has been patient. He has had to wait for his opportunity back in the team but I thought he did very well on Saturday."
