STRIKER Kieffer Moore took something away from the 4-0 defeat at Manchester City on Saturday, sharing that he was “always learning”.

Moore played 90 minutes at the Etihad before coming off as a precaution in injury time.

When asked if he gained any insight after sharing a pitch with Erling Haaland and Kevin De Bruyne, the Welshman told the Daily Echo: “Definitely – you’re always learning, all the time, no matter who you're against, even in training, you’re always picking up stuff and learning positions and everything."

With Cherries not seeing much of the ball, Moore toiled tirelessly up top with little reward. However, the 30-year-old stated the he was keen to work hard for the side.

He restarted: “Yeah, definitely hard, but I felt like I had to do it to the team. We weren't successful in what we wanted from today, but Man City it's always a tough game.

"It's always tough. I think that's part and parcel of being a lone striker.

"You have to work hard for the team. You have to always be on the move, and sniff out positions to score goals.

"It was difficult today. The conditions didn't help, with it being so hot and whatnot.

"It's a tough game. I felt Manchester City dictated a lot of the ball, so it was hard to get into positions to score as a team, and for us to progress up the pitch."
