The Bournemouth manager is worried about the team’s English Premier League run so far in the league, as they lost eight of their last 11 EPL matches.
Bournemouth FC is sitting in 12th place of the English Premier League.
The team has won eight matches, drawing three and losing ten. They have 27 points, tied with Everton.
And Bournemouth boss Eddie Howe is anxious to see his team get out of this crisis.
“It’s another massive game for us,” said Howe at his pre-match conference against Everton according to BT Sport.
“We’re very keen to show a response to the recent run that we’ve been on.”
“The fixture list we had was incredibly tough, the injuries we suffered were difficult for us to handle, and I think confidence just took a little knock on the back of those two things,” he added.
“Confidence is such an important factor in any professional team, we need to make sure that we don’t doubt ourselves in any way and we go to Everton full of confidence.”
“I’d like to think it doesn’t affect the mentality of the players, it certainly doesn’t affect me,” said Howe.
“We’ve always believed that when we haven’t done something it’s a huge incentive to try and do it.”
