Troy Deeney & Ryan Fraser's eventful interview after Bournemouth 3-3 Watford

Bournemouth and Watford put on one of the most entertaining first-halfs in Premier League history last night.

In the space of six minutes, the score went from a 2-0 lead for Watford to 3-3, with Ryan Fraser completing Bournemouth's comeback on 40 minutes.

Troy Deeney had put the visitors in front with a well-taken brace, before Nathan Ake pulled a goal back with his second in as many matches.

Callum Wilson then notched his ninth Premier League goal of the season, before winger Ken Sema put the Hornets back in the lead.

Fraser's reply for the Cherries was instant, but the goals dried up in the second-half.

However, there were still a number of incidents following the interval and Deeney was quick to raise them in his post-match interview.

You can watch the rather bizarre footage below.


It's not often you see players from both teams do an interview together in the Premier League. Fraser's face throughout is just priceless.

Deeney claims Bournemouth's Dan Gosling was deserving of a red card for a tackle on Tom Cleverly, while also claiming the referee 'bottled' a late handball claim for a penalty by Watford.

Bournemouth boss Eddie Howe opted to defend Gosling following Deeney's explosive interview.

"I don't think it was dangerous, Dan's tackle; for me it's not a red card," said Howe, per Independent.

"I know Dan inside and out, he's not that type of player. Yes he's mistimed the tackle. But in terms of those words (from Deeney), that's not in Dan's make-up."

Howe then added that he thought Abdoulaye Doucoure should have been given his marching orders for his tackle on Fraser in the first-half.

"Yeah I do I think it was a straight red card," the Bournemouth boss added.

"Ryan was very fortunate not to pick up a serious injury, it's a very dangerous tackle and one you don't want to see at any level of football."
