Eddie Howe reacts to Newcastle United’s draw with Bournemouth - and another winless weekend

Newcastle United dropped two more home points against recently promoted AFC Bournemouth.

Newcastle United had to come from behind to rescue a home point against Eddie Howe’s former side AFC Bournemouth.

Philip Billing opened the scoring for the Cherries before an Alexander Isak penalty ensured honours remained even on another disappointing home outing for the Magpies.

And here’s how head coach Howe reacted to the result.

“Very disappointed today. I thought that was a performance below the levels that we’ve set ourselves. Probably for the first time this season, we dipped.

“It’s difficult to know why at this moment. I felt we played in front of them too much, they obviously defended very deep. It was our responsibility of us to break through that and I just felt we were off a little in every aspect of their game.

“It was probably epitomised by the last 20 minutes. When we scored, you thought the game was set up for us to win and our decision-making and patience left us.

“It was a difficult watch that end part of the game. We needed to set ourselves and re-energise ourselves. We could have won the game but obviously it slipped away from us.”
