Bournemouth manager Eddie Howe caught his chewing gum without looking after it fell from his mouth during Wednesday’s 5-1 defeat at Arsenal.

Barking out his instructions from the side of the Emirates pitch, Cherries boss Howe accidentally lets a piece of gum slip.


Without missing a beat, he scoops it up in his hand with all the panache of someone who’s well practised at it.

Indeed, he keeps his eyes trained on the action the whole time, not casting so much as a glance at the wayward confectionery.

Skillful gum-catching is something that’s previously been showcased by Mesut Özil, who was among the scorers for the Gunners on this occasion.

Henrikh Mkhitaryan, Laurent Koscielny, Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang and Alexandre Lacazette were also on the mark, with Lys Mousset scoring for Bournemouth.
