That left last season's champions marooned in 14th place and 14 points off a top-four place, and Mourinho was highly critical of his players for failing to score against a team that had never before kept a clean sheet away from home in the top flight.The goal was by no means Bournemouth's only opportunity however and fit-again goalkeeper Thibaut Courtois, playing for the first time in three months, made a number of saves.But Mourinho claimed his players had also created enough chances to win, and was disappointed that only Nemanja Matic, who was wearing a protective face mask and headed a clear opportunity over the bar in the second half, made contact in front of goal.The win allowed Bournemouth to climb out of the bottom three and manager Eddie Howe was delighted to add another chapter to the extraordinary story of a small-town club that teetered on the brink of bankruptcy just a few years ago.
