EDDIE Howe knows Cherries must do their talking on the pitch against Everton on Sunday.

The Dorset club have lost 10 of their past 13 games in all competitions ahead of the trip to Goodison Park.

Howe told the Daily Echo: “Whenever we don’t win, I’m concerned. Whenever we don’t perform as we can, I’m concerned.

“It doesn’t matter to me whether we’ve been on a winning run or a losing run, I want to see a united team performing in the manner I would expect.

“And if I don’t see that then it’s a massive concern and I need to know why.

“We have huge expectations internally and I know the players feel the same way. There’s only one way to answer that and that’s on the pitch.”

Everton have also been through a difficult run of late, winning just one of their past eight Premier League games.

Howe said: “They are quite similar to us in how they play. They are a very good team with good individuals and a nice style of football.

“They have adapted very well to their new manager. I see good times ahead for them.”
