EDDIE HOWE: Swansea first offside and second not a penalty

By -

It’s been a long time coming but Josh King got his first Permier League strike for the Cherries as he slid home from a Stanislas cross.

Dan Gosling added a second quarter of an hour later, but the visitors could only hold on to the lead for two minutes as a Andre Ayew backheel brought the deficit back to a single goal. With five minutes to go until half-time Simon Francis conceded a (very dubious) which Jonjo Shelvey duly converted. The Cherries could  have been further in front but Stanislas had a goal ruled out for offside.

The mighty AFC Bournemouth dominated for long periods of the game having more possession (58%) and shots on goal (16)
