He said: ‘I know how it sounds but we should have won this game if we did little things better, so now we have to find out.

‘In one of 4 games we didn’t perform – Fulham. We did other good stuff [in the rest] and now it is Bournemouth, I don’t take anything for granted.
‘I want to be the one team no-one wants to play against again. That’s the plan for tomorrow.’
