  14. Howe wants to break 40-point mark this weekend

    BBC Sport

    Bournemouth boss Eddie Howe isn't taking anything for granted despite his side being seven points clear of the drop on 38 points, while Sunderland are stranded 12 points from safety.

    Eddie Howe
    Quote Message: I won't accept we're safe until it's mathematically done. We'd love to get over the 40 point barrier this weekend though. Any away game in the Premier League is difficult. While there's hope for Sunderland they'll keep going, it will be tough. We've been slightly more inconsistent than we'd have liked, but I see progression in the team and we're going the right way. from Eddie Howe
