ANDONI Iraola says goalkeeper Neto “knows he has made a mistake” which allowed Everton to equalise at Vitality Stadium, but added: “Luckily for him and for all, it hasn’t cost us points.”

With Cherries leading 1-0 thanks to a Dominic Solanke header, captain Neto failed to claim a high cross from Dwight McNeil.

After spilling the ball, Everton substitute Beto was on hand to turn in and equalise with three minutes of normal time to play.

But there was to be another twist, Seamus Coleman turning into his own net in stoppage time as Cherries won 2-1 to move 16 points clear of the relegation zone.

Asked if Neto had any words for his teammates in the dressing room after the game, head coach Iraola said: “No, he knows he has made a mistake.

“Luckily for him and for all, it hasn’t cost us points, because let’s say they equalised the mistake at the end and we could finish with the win.

“The most normal would probably be to win this game 1-0. Okay, it has been different, but we still have the three points.”

Reflecting on the victory, Iraola added: "For us it was a very important win.

"We have arrived to 38 points, which is a good mark for us.

"We still have nine more chances to continue getting points.

"We had to play this kind of game today, because against Everton they are very consistent with the way they play.

"They will put you under pressure, even with long balls from (Jordan) Pickford and set-pieces. They are really physical and I think we dealt quite well during the game.

"We had our chances. It is not easy to score against them.

"They concede very few chances. I think we played the game we had to."

Cherries return to action on Tuesday night, welcoming Crystal Palace to Vitality Stadium (7.45pm).
