Eddie Howe is aiming for a ‘complete performance’ as Bournemouth look to get back to winning ways at Crystal Palace on Tuesday evening.

The Cherries have won just one of their past eight league games, a 1-0 victory over Manchester United last month, leaving them 12th in the table and just four points off the bottom three.

However the Bournemouth boss feels his side have shown enough in recent games to believe a win is just around the corner.

“I think we just have to look at our last three performances and see the results could have been a lot different,” Howe said.

“I don’t think there’s a lot wrong with the team, we’re in pretty good shape but I think we just need to be a bit more consistent throughout the games.

“Even within those games there’s been slight inconsistencies that have ended up costing us so we need to put a complete performance together, starting tomorrow [at Crystal Palace].”

Howe, who also reiterated he is solely focused on Bournemouth amid interest from Everton, also refuted claims his side have never been in a relegation scrap before.

“The reality is it has always been tight but we’ve just managed to get a big result whenever we’ve needed it,” Howe added.

“We have always been in a relegation battle in the four seasons we’ve been in the Premier League.

“But we’ve always stuck together through the difficult periods and this season is going to be no different.”
