Eddie Howe is happy with Bournemouth's resilience after his side came from two goals down to draw 2-2 with Everton at the Vitality Stadium on Saturday.

Eddie Howe has hailed Bournemouth's resilience in coming back from two goals down to draw 2-2 with Everton at the Vitality Stadium on Saturday.

The hosts appeared to be heading for their first defeat of the season after quick-fire second-half goals from Theo Walcott and Michael Keane put Everton two up.

However, with both sides down to 10 men after the dismissals of Richarlison and Adam Smith, Bournemouth hit back with two goals in the final quarter of an hour on the south coast.

As a result, the Cherries have now taken 20 points from losing positions in 2018, and Howe was delighted with another gutsy display from his side.

"Another comeback and we're delighted to achieve it," the 40-year-old told Sky Sports News.

"Certainly at 2-0 down and 10 against 10 it looked very difficult just from the mental perspective of how the game had gone for us to that point.

"The players went again and once we got the goal to go 2-1, the whole game changed, the momentum of the game changed and we were the stronger team at the end."

Bournemouth will now switch their focus onto the EFL Cup as they host MK Dons on Tuesday night.
