Eddie Howe's Bournemouth came from behind at home to earn a much welcomed three points against Paul Lambert's Stoke City on Saturday.

In doing so, the Cherries extended their run of games without a loss to seven, having won four and drawn three. After struggling in the earlier stages of the season, Bournemouth's turnaround has been mightily impressive from Howe, who was beginning to come under some pressure following a tough run of results. 

Bournemouth's run of seven games unbeaten is their longest in the Premier League and the South Coast club currently sit comfortably in ninth place, four points behind Leicester City.

According to the BBC, speaking to the media following their 2-1 victory over Stoke, Howe said, "A few weeks ago it was tough for us so it shows how quickly things can change.

"We need to use this momentum we've got and try to keep it going."

A certain former Liverpool player has been right at the heart of the shift in momentum for Bournemouth. Jordan Ibe, 22, arrived from Anfield with much promise. However he initially struggled to hit the heights that were expected of him. 

In his last five Premier League games Ibe has had a hand in four goals, with one strike and three assists. This betters the three assists registered in his previous 44 appearances for the Cherries.

Performances from the likes of Ibe in recent weeks are a perfect representation of the feel-good factor being back at the Vitality Stadium. That said, Howe was quick to stay grounded and not get carried away with the run. After all, it was only recently that his side had gone weeks without a victory. 

"After going four or five without a win, we've shown character to come back in the manner we have but there's a lot of the season to go," the manager added. 

The Cherries now have a magnificent chance to extend their unbeaten run to eight as they make the trip to second bottom Huddersfield on Sunday.
