AFC Bournemouth sit three points outside of the relegation zone for the first time this season, going into the international break.
This comes after The Cherries achieved their second win of the term in emphatic and dominant fashion against injury stricken Newcastle United.
Two goals from Dominic Solanke meant the striker levelled his goal tally to last year already and helped his team gain a crucial three points before the International fixtures.
Andoni Iraola said: “It’s always better to win going into the break” which is something Bournemouth failed to do last time round.
He further stated: “We must continue to train the way we did this week” and that “we need more wins and need more points”.
Bournemouth have found themselves in a difficult position just 12 games into this year’s campaign and are in 17th with just 9 points.
This win could be the turning point for The Reds but Iraola has said the team “cannot lose 1% of effort”.
He added: “He’s happy because the players needed to feel the atmosphere” the fans created with their support and appreciation for the good performance.”
Iraola wasn’t displeased with his sides cutting edge in the first half claiming “you prefer to have the chances”.
Newcastle have been hit with a wave of injuries and their performance looked “unrecognisable” as described by Eddie Howe.
The Magpies boss also stated the “team didn’t look like themselves” and that “the International period “has come at a good time”.
Despite the poor performance he didn’t feel “let down or angry” by the team and says the “players are honest and have given me so much.”
Defender Kieran Trippier confronted a fan at the full time whistle showing his concern for the lack of players available, to which the fan later apologised over Twitter.
Howe confirmed striker Callum Wilson will not travel with the England squad, after being one of the eleven unavailable first team players for Newcastle.
Newcastle released a statement regarding the injuries of Alexander Isak and Harvey Barnes, who are both expected to return after the international break after “progressing well”.
