Bournemouth 2-0 Newcastle: What Iraola said

Bournemouth manager Andoni Iraola speaking to BBC MOTD: "Yes, I'm obviously happy because we needed these three points but even happier with the performance. The players deserve it. We kept pushing and we deserved it.

"It was key for us to make them feel like it won't be an easy game for them and make them feel uncomfortable under pressure. They play quite open and in transitional games, but that is a style that suits us.

"I think the substitutes gave us this energy and we had spaces for the counter-attack. It was becoming dangerous. We had chances to close the game - score a third one and finish it - but luckily we kept our clean sheet and could win the game.

"Dominic Solanke has been very good for us since the beginning of the season. He not only gives us goals, he gives us a lot of work, he is always a threat in the space and is good covering the ball. It is a pleasure to have him in the team."
