Bournemouth’s 3-0 victory against the defending champions Chelsea at Stamford Bridge is their “best result” in the Premier League, according to manager Eddie Howe.
Aside the defeat being humiliating, it also sends the defending champions to the fourth position on the premier league table while still tied on point with Liverpool who now go top on goal difference.
It was Bournemouth’s’ first away win in seven league matches but Chelsea suffered their joint-heaviest loss of the season in the hands of their visitors.
This is Bournemouth’s third top-flight campaign – they beat Chelsea and Manchester United in 2015-16, Liverpool and Leicester in 2016-17 and Arsenal earlier this month.
Howe has been managing the club since October 2012, his second spell in charge after a stint from 2009-2011 during which they were in the third and fourth tiers.
