"For me Dele is not a midfield player, he is a player to play like he is playing, close to Harry. I think this is the best position for him," added Mourinho.
"He's the best thing that can happen to a coach because everybody speaks about him, you [media], the fans speak about him for the right reasons. He's playing really, really, really well and I could not ask any more from him."
"The disappointing thing is to concede two goals from long balls. That killed us," said manager Eddie Howe.
"We should have dealt with them better. These are not the type of goals you expect to concede coming here."
