Eddie Howe says Bournemouth will stick to their philosophy to avoid crisis talks

Bournemouth boss Eddie Howe says clubs are always "just one game away from a crisis" in the Premier League but believes rewards will come if you stick to your philosophy.
Bournemouth travel to Swansea this weekend, where they will again be without Junior Stanislas and Jermain Defoe, looking for a third consecutive away win and a fifth win in their last six matches.
Premier League questions
Can David Moyes win his first West Ham game? Will Mo Salah haunt Chelsea? We take a look at this weekend's Premier League questions.
Meanwhile, Swansea boss Paul Clement is under the spotlight after five straight defeats and Howe has sympathy for his counterpart at the Liberty Stadium.
He said: "We've stuck to our principles of what we do, had some good training and the lads stuck together in working as a team.
"I think we're all under pressure. When you're managing in the Premier League, you're often one result away from a crisis."
"If you keep doing the right things, the luck changes and I'm a firm believer in doing the right things."
Confidence is high in the Cherries' camp after last week's 4-0 win over Huddersfield but Howe is expecting a tough test in south Wales.
He said: "It's difficult in this league. It's difficult to be tight, it's difficult to score because you're playing against organised teams.
"Swansea are a good team. They're very very organised, you can see that when they play. I think they've got a very good squad and a very good manager.
"I think when you're going into any game, it's about how you prepare. We've trained well and mentally the squad is in a good place.
"Junior Stanislas will miss out again and his injury is lasting a little longer than we first hoped and Jermain Defoe will still be out with his calf problem."
