Eddie Howe hailed Bournemouth's 3-0 win against Chelsea as "our best result and performance" as they extended their unbeaten Premier League run.
The Cherries registered their joint-biggest away win in the Premier League with the result, having done it previously against Swansea in December 2016.
Howe, whose side are now unbeaten in six league matches, was full of praise for his players following the game, and said it could be their best ever win since he has been at the club.
"Right now, I think it feels the best. I think it is our best result and performance," he said.
"I think if you get the performance but not the result, there's always a bit of a gloss taken off for me but today, I think we got both and that's even more satisfying.
"I think we've produced what we wanted to produce [against Chelsea]. It was a really good performance, a hard-working, disciplined display from the players with a lot of quality as well.
"The goals we scored were excellent and a fitting reward for all the effort the players have put in.
"I was pleased with our first-half performance. To keep their attacking players quiet is very difficult, they've got very good individuals so I thought we did that very well in the first half, then we got our goals and our reward in the second. I thought it was a performance built on hard work and discipline."
Callum Wilson, Nathan Ake and Junior Stanislas were all on the scoresheet at Stamford Bridge, and Howe saved special praised for forward Wilson and former Chelsea man Ake.
"Callum was excellent tonight, he was a real handful. I think the hallmark for him was the effort and work rate he put in and his reward was that one moment with the goal. I'm really pleased for him," said Howe.
"It was a great moment for him [Ake]. I said before the game, he had nothing to prove to anyone at Chelsea. I thought today he was excellent, put in a good performance and capped it with a goal."
