With the Premier League season still settling down, manager Eddie Howe insists that the Cherries are still acrimatising to life in the top division.
Speaking in the Bournemouth Evening Echo, Howe is quoted as saying: "We certainly believed in the group we had. There was no question of us ripping apart the squad and starting again, it wouldn’t fit with how we work or with our players being in tune with each other. Too many changes can be detrimental. It is early days to be making big assessments. Whether we have acclimatised or the players are established as Premier League players is still to be proved and I think that will be an ongoing battle we’re going to have for the remainder of the season. Nothing is final until we achieve our objective".
