Bournemouth manager Eddie Howe insists their victory against Chelsea could provide them a much needed leverage in their battle against the top six.
Until the last match, Bournemouth’s record against the top six had been worse. The Cherries had failed to register a single victory but their 4-0 win over Maurizio Sarri’s side could be a breakthrough in this campaign.
Bournemouth made a pretty good start to the ongoing season but their inconsistent performance has taken a toll on their position in the Premier League table.
The victory has lifted them to 10th place and with a number of tough fixtures piling up ahead Howe would be fancying is chances as the Cherries are scheduled to face Liverpool, Arsenal and Manchester City in the next few games.
Howe said, “Tough games on the horizon but I think they always are in the Premier League.
“I never see an easy schedule. The win against Chelsea will hopefully launch us into a new feeling that we can beat and compete against the top six.
“I think we have done that in terms of performances, the results haven’t matched that. Hopefully the Chelsea game will be a turning point where the results start to match how we have played against them.
“But first and foremost it is Cardiff and that has to be the only thought in our heads and trying to win.”
