SKY PUNDIT AND former Liverpool defender Jamie Carragher has singled out Harry Arter for praise.

Writing in his latest column, Carragher says he was impressed by the Ireland international after he returned to action for Bournemouth against Liverpool during the week.

Naming Arter as his ‘man of the week,’ Carragher wrote:

“The return of Arter after a long-term ankle injury was a big plus and he did well in midfield, never afraid to put in a tackle or use the ball intelligently. He showed at Anfield in the 71 minutes he was on the pitch why he has been missed this season.

“Fitness issues have caused Bournemouth so many problems since they got promoted, with Callum Wilson, Max Gradel and Tyrone Mings all suffering anterior cruciate ligament damage, the first named being the club’s best goalscorer, the others being Bournemouth’s biggest ever signings.

“But seeing Arter in midfield will have reassured Howe, as having a midfield axis of the 25-year-old and Andrew Surman is good enough to compete in the Barclays Premier League.”

Arter was a key part of Bournemouth’s Championship-winning campaign last year, contributing nine goals and three assists, while the midfielder made his Ireland debut against England during the summer.
