[Arsenal 2-0 Bournemouth] We were well in the game. We started brightly but once we conceded we wobbled. At 1-0 there was always a chance we could get into the game but the second goal was of huge quality and ended it. We are developing all the time as a side. We still have some way to go but if we make the same improvement again we will be a good side. We took the game to Arsenal in the first half but unfortunately the quality of their players told in the end

[Bournemouth 0-2 Arsenal] We were slow out the blocks today, which is unlike us. If you give a team like Arsenal time on the ball they will punish you

We were much-improved in the second half without getting that goal to put them under pressure. We kept going, kept fighting, and if we had got that goal back with say 20 minutes to go, it would have made for an interesting finish. We got into some really good positions without the cutting edge we have had in recent weeks

[Arter was part of a midfield overrun and outclassed as City excelled to move up to second in the Premier League table, but Bournemouth manager Eddie Howe was nonetheless pleased with how his side performed] We needed a positive response to the Everton game, and we got that. The attitude and motivation to the team was very good. Looking to the future, those are important characteristics to the team. We need to get our bounce back, and that will only come from a win, but that was a positive step forward.

I thought City were very good, a very controlled performance as the away team. Our lads gave everything they could, worked incredibly hard, and I can’t ask for anything more. I just felt they were better than us

[Bournemouth’s fitness problems continued, as both Jack Wilshere and Simon Francis were forced off with injuries] Jack is just feeling his ankle. I don’t think there’s a major injury there. He just felt he couldn’t move as freely as he wanted to and had a pain in his ankle, so we took him off. Simon is feeling his hamstring again. Any injuries we get to established first-team players are going to be difficult to manage

[During their 2-0 defeat on Saturday, Arter stopped his Watford counterpart from taking a shot by appearing to shout ‘Jack’s!’ behind him, causing Chalobah to leave the ball] It depends where you’re sitting I think. It’s very rare that it comes up. We have a word that we use for leaving the ball. I haven’t spoken to Harry about the incident so it’s hard for me taking things second hand. Until I speak to him I’ll probably swerve it.

[Bournemouth manager Eddie Howe didn’t feel his side were at their best either] Huddersfield were very good. It was nice to go 2-0 up but they had nothing to lose and played well. We defended well. Huddersfield do a lot of things well. You could say we were slightly fortunate but we deserve that. We scored two good goals and you think you can go on and put it to bed but it swung. I wasn’t happy with the period from 2-0 until half-time. But second half we were more secure

[Arsenal 5-1 Bournemouth] Arsenal did have individuals who played well and they were too good for us. But that mindset takes away ownership of what we delivered with our own team. They may have played well but our perspective is clear that we can do so much better and are capable of much more than that. We will not kid ourselves and our analysis has to be that it was not acceptable

Maybe I need to readdress that. We have spoke at length with the players, it is nothing we haven’t discussed, but we have to put that into action. We’re always looking over shoulder because we need points and we need results. Whether we are safe or not we need to pride ourselves on being our best and we were way short of that today

[Eddie Howe praises tireless Lewis Cook] He was hugely impressive. He’s missed a lot of football but he has done everything right in his recovery. He has put the yards in. I’ve never seen a player run as much as he has. He has had two behind closed doors game and looked really good in those. That’s why I selected him.

[Eddie Howe stated he’d never seen a player run as much as Cook did during his rehab] He is very much the modern type of centre midfield player and we are just pleased to get him back now. We hope he stays fit and available for us and gets back to the levels he was consistently before because he was a huge part of our team.’

You don’t want to go too long without winning at home. We’ve been unfortunate in previous home games. We knew the importance today and it’s a great win against a good team

[Alireza Jahanbakhsh and Aaron Mooy on target as Brighton beat Bournemouth 2-0] No complaints about the result. I thought we took time to settle into the game. We were not at our best, we conceded an early goal. The second half was tough… We were slow out of the traps, we conceded a goal which gave us a mountain to climb, but we recovered and should have scored
