With relegation now a credible threat, Bournemouth's manager, Eddie Howe, insists that it's not a point of contention (or even a talking point) between him and the club's owner, the Russian Maxim Demin, despite the pair being in regular contact with each other.

"It's a relationship that's very positive and very healthy. He's given me all the support I need," Howe said, according to the Bournemouth Daily Echo.

"I don't think I've ever heard him talk negatively about a situation. It's always about the future and finding a solution."
