(Reuters) – Bournemouth have experienced the ups and downs of life in the Premier League and it is that experience which makes them tough to beat, manager Eddie Howe has said.

Bournemouth, who have finished 16th, ninth and 12th in their three seasons in the top flight, have won both of their league games this season, coming back from a goal down to beat West Ham United on Saturday.

“The players have been there a few seasons and have seen most things,” Howe told the Bournemouth Echo.

“They’ve experienced most highs and lows and that’s starting to pay dividends for us in certain situations because a game can change very quickly.”

Bournemouth next host Everton on Saturday.
