Bournemouth manager Andoni Iraola has praised the performance of Ghana international Antoine Semenyo in the first two games of the season.
The 23-year-old has featured in the first two games of the Premier League season, starting one and coming off the bench in the other.
Semenyo was a substitute in the 1-1 draw against West Ham United where he made an instant impact in the build-up to the equaliser at the Vitality Stadium.
On Saturday, he was given a start against Liverpool and scored the opening goal of the game before his side went on to suffer a 3-1 defeat.
But his performances in the early stages of the season delight the Spaniard.
“Antoine [Semenyo] was very good last week [vs. West Ham]. The minutes he played he gave good energy to the team,” Iraola said.

“[Against Liverpool] also, he pushed a lot. He really finished very tired.

“But I think what we expect from our forward players is to give everything they have. A player comes and we are in a good position.”
Having joined the Cherries in January, Semenyo started two games and made nine substitute appearances scoring once.
