MARCUS Tavernier admitted he felt “a bit angry” not to have found the net to record an even more emphatic victory against Newcastle United.

A brace from Dominic Solanke was more than enough for Cherries to seal a 2-0 win over Eddie Howe's Magpies.

The visitors had goalkeeper Nick Pope to thank for keeping the score down, while the likes of Tavernier, Luis Sinisterra and Antoine Semenyo all went close to netting as Cherries registered 19 shots, 10 of which were on target.

Put to him a three or four-goal winning margin would not have flattered Cherries, winger Tavernier said: “If I’m being critical, I’m a bit angry that I didn’t score and a couple of other chances we missed.

"If we’re being really critical, we’ve got to put those chances away, because you know in some games you might only get two of them.

“We’ve really got to start finishing these chances, because we haven’t scored enough goals this season and we know they don’t come easy in this division.”

Cherries have now scored 11 times in the Premier League this season, putting them ahead of Fulham, Sheffield United, Luton Town (all 10) and Burnley (9) in the goals for column.

There was no sign of Cherries sitting back and protecting their 2-0 lead in the closing stages against Newcastle, with a host of chances falling late on as Andoni Iraola’s men continued to fly forwards in numbers.

“That’s what we’ve talked about in previous weeks, not sitting off and letting teams get back into the game,” said Tavernier.

“I feel like when we carried on pressing and winning the ball high up, we should’ve scored more goals.

“We’ve got to be critical in that sense and put the ball in the back of the net to make it an even bigger scoreline.”

Discussing the late missed opportunities, Iraola said: “I prefer to have the chances. It is true we are not matching the number of goals we should have scored.

“But I think we have quality up front. We are pretty confident that if we keep the offensive volume, goals will arrive.”
