Nathan Ake put in a great performance for Bournemouth but they were held to a 1-1 draw by Wolves.

The Dutch international has been a star in the Cherries defence all season and he barely put a foot wrong on Saturday.

The match against Wolves ended 1-1 with both sides netting a penalty each, but the performance of Ake was a standout.

The centre-back made 14! clearances, four tackles and won four aerial duels as Bournemouth prevented a dangerous Wolves side from netting more than one.

The form of Ake will be encouraging for Ronald Koeman ahead of the Netherlands clashes with Germany and Belarus next month.

Elsewhere, Vincent Janssen was missing as Tottenham lost 2-1 at Burnley. Juninho Bacuna started for Huddersfield in their 2-0 defeat at Newcastle United, but Terence Kongolo remained on the bench.
