Cleverley's appeals were waved away by referee Roger East before Bournemouth had their first big chance of the game moments later. Defender Nathan Ake, in a £20million deal, and veteran goalkeeper Asmir Begovic were signed from Chelsea while England striker Jermain Defoe secured lucrative personal terms following his free transfer from Sunderland.

With midfielder Junior Stanislas continuing his rehabilitation on a groin problem and forward Callum Wilson recovering from a serious knee injury, the Bournemouth manager accepts his squad is looking a bit threadbare.

'Our plan was always to get our business done early.

Watford boss Marco Silva reveals his satisfaction after goals from Richarlison and Etienne Capoue hand the club victory over Bournemouth in the Premier League.

Howe said: "Even when we didn't play well past year, we created a number of chances in most games, so West Brom was an uncharacteristic, dormant display from us in an attacking sense".

'We wanted to get up and running and get the momentum early on, so we're disappointed by that.

"Watford are a physical and strong side so we need to be ready for that but they have quality in different ways, too".

Eddie Howe has been impressed with the methods of Marco Silva as he prepares to do battle with the Watford head coach again at the Vitality Stadium tomorrow. It was a very good game between two teams who played to win the match.

"I am very satisfied".

"It doesn't surprise me that he is still in the league with a job".
