Eddie Howe is delighted with Bournemouth's "excellent" 2-1 win over West Ham United in Saturday's Premier League encounter at the London Stadium.

Eddie Howe has hailed Bournemouth's "excellent" 2-1 win over West Ham United in Saturday's Premier League encounter at the London Stadium.

The Cherries fell behind on 33 minutes when Marko Arnautovic converted a penalty after Javier Hernandez had been clipped by Nathan Ake.

Callum Wilson, however, equalised on the hour with a fine individual goal as he ran with the ball from near the halfway line and slotted past Lukasz Fabianski.

Steve Cook headed the winner shortly afterwards when he outmuscled Angelo Ogbonna to nod Ryan Fraser's free kick into the back of the net.

As well as lauding his team as a whole, Howe singled Wilson out for praise and tipped his player to kick on from the timely confidence booster.

"Excellent win, excellent performance, especially the second half," Howe told BBC Sport. "1-0 down, to come back there's a lot of work to do so credit to the players.

"Every team is reliant on their creative players, all those for us functioned well in the second half. How we haven't scored more we have look back, but it is a good sign.

"We really needed [Wilson's strike], a really good goal. He is outnumbered and showed his pace and it was a really good finish. Hopefully the start he needs to believe he can have a good season we know he is capable."

Wilson has scored in three successive league games for the first time since April 2015, when the Cherries were in the Championship.
