Bournemouth boss Gary O'Neil was delighted to see his side virtually secure safety against Leeds but admitted there would be no lavish celebrations in his household. Leeds' relegation fears increased after Jefferson Lerma's double helped Bournemouth secure a vital 4-1 home win. The Cherries moved level with Chelsea on 39 points and 10 clear of the bottom three after Lerma's brace was backed up by second-half strikes from Dominic Solanke and Antoine Semenyo. It all but confirms Bournemouth will be a Premier League club next season and continues O'Neil's excellent debut campaign in the managerial hotseat. "Yeah, 39 points from 34 games is a big effort," the Cherries' rookie manager said. "Today is relief that we put in a big performance and achieved what I think is Premier League safety, so I will enjoy this evening with the family. "I was in A&E last night with my youngest daughter. She had an accident, nothing serious, so get home and see how she is. "Probably spend the evening in the lounge with maybe a beer, a tea, some chocolate. There are some Easter eggs left. "Yeah, I will just enjoy it with them. I want to spend some time with the people who have supported me. They've seen some dark evenings in the O'Neil house, so let's enjoy this one with them."
