EXCLUSIVE - Bournemouth ace Harry Arter in confident mood ahead of Tottenham trip

Harry Arter in action for Bournemouth

Thursday, October 12, 2017

Harry Arter insist Bournemouth’s fortunes will soon change.

The Cherries have endured a difficult start to the Premier League season, winning just one of their opening seven games.

But they were beginning to show some positive signs in their three games before the international break – beating Brighton, narrowly losing to Everton and drawing with Leicester City – and Arter is confident his 19th-placed side will move up the table.

Speaking to the Alan Brazil Sports Breakfast ahead of Saturday’s trip to Tottenham, the midfield ace said: “Up until the last couple of games we haven’t really performed great but looking at Everton and Leicester at home we fully deserved three points from both of them games.

“It was disappointing [not to win them] but you can take confidence from both of them games and, if you perform like that over 38 games, the points will start picking up.

“We had periods like this last year. It is such a tough league, especially for the bottom-half clubs. If you don’t get a result against a side that you expect yourself to then you know you are up against it when you are playing against the top sides.

“We have experienced this before and we all know how we are going to get out of it. The last two performances there have been good signs.”

Arter, fresh from helping the Republic of Ireland beat Wales to book a World Cup play-off spot, insists Bournemouth won’t be making any special plans to stop Harry Kane this weekend and is hopeful his side’s resurgence starts at Wembley.

“I don’t think you can focus on one Tottenham player,” he insisted. “Harry Kane is in great form at the minute but he has got ten players behind him feeding him the ball.

“We have had some good games against Tottenham since we have been in the Premier League. We got a result against them at home last year and performed really well.

“We know how we can stop them, we just have to make sure we are all at it.”
