Bournemouth down Southampton at the saint marys

AFC Bournemouth climbed to third put in the Premier League with their first since forever away triumph at Southampton.

Nathan Ake's transcending header put them on their way to a 3-1 win after just 10 minutes of a first half Eddie Howe's side ruled.

On 35 minutes Harry Wilson completed off a general move including Josh King and Philip Billing to twofold AFC Bournemouth's lead.

Southampton revitalized eight minutes after the break when James Ward-Prowse diminished the unpaid debts from the punishment spot following a foul on Che Adams by Steve Cook.

Ward-Prowse went close once more, and Sofiane Boufal brought a fine spare from Aaron Ramsdale, before a guarded mistake somewhere down in stoppage time permitted Callum Wilson the opportunity to seal the focuses.

The success takes AFC Bournemouth third on 10, while Southampton are three and seven places back.
