The 22- year-old had actually gone 38 top-flight appearances without finding the net prior to his double against Leicester.
Dominic Solanke hopes to fire Bournemouth to a Premier League great escape after selecting an appropriate minute to end his prolonged goal dry spell.
Striker Solanke struck a vital second-half brace as the relegation-threatened Cherries fought back to whip Champions League-chasing Leicester 4-1 and breathe fresh life into their survival quote.
The 22- year-old had actually gone 38 top-flight appearances without finding the net given that a reported ₤19 million transfer from Liverpool in January 2019.
Solanke, topped as soon as by England in 2017, confesses his extended duration without scoring was an undesirable experience and aspires to add to his tally and help Eddie Howe’s men defy the odds.
“It was probably the best time for them to come,” stated Solanke.
” The first one was to take the lead so that was a big feeling. To go on and get the second one was a pleasure for me.
” I think the position we remain in at the minute isn’t great however the past couple of games we have actually been developing.
” If you take a look at the history of the club, we have actually beaten the odds a great deal of times and ideally we can do it again.
” It’s been rather challenging for us just recently however (Sunday) was a big increase.
“It hasn’t been nice (personally) but it’s good to get the goals. Hopefully I can take that confidence and get a few more.”
Bournemouth moved to within 3 points of safety by sensational the Foxes, although they have an even worse goal distinction than transfer competitors Watford and West Ham.
The Cherries travel to Premier League runners-up Manchester City on Wednesday prior to a home game against south-coast competitors Southampton and a journey to Everton on the final day of the season.
“We know it’s not going to be easy, especially with a team like Man City next but we need every point we can get at the moment,” stated Solanke, whose previous Premier League goal came when Liverpool beat Brighton 4-0 in May 2018.
” Undoubtedly the fans can’t be here to witness it at the minute however they can watch at home on TELEVISION.
“Hopefully they watched, were happy with the result and in the last few games we can kick on and stay in the Premier League.”
