Cherries at Stamford Bridge tomorrow.
Asked how much confidence the win over second-placed Liverpool would give his players ahead of the visit to Stamford Bridge, Howe replied: “Results like that reaffirm the belief that we can beat anybody.
“I know it’s a bit of a cliché but we proved it last season against Chelsea and Manchester United. It is possible but you need everything to go your way. You need the players to perform at their absolute maximum and perhaps you need the team you are playing to play below their best levels. You also need a bit of luck. If you get all those things together, you have a chance to win.”
