It must have been a very difficult decision for Harry Arter to make just to even play in Bournemouth's victory. The grief he must felt after his daughter was lost at birth during the week. It's not something that many people can relate to, and it would have been very understandable for Arter to have skipped the game to be with his partner at this tough time.
Not only did Arter play, but his fantastic 86 minute display was a big reason why Bournemouth were able to grind out the victory - and he was deservedly given man of the match. Speaking to his club's website after the game, Arter thanked everyone at Bournemouth for their support, and gave an insight into why he wanted to play.
I just felt coming in and trying to take my mind off things would make it a bit easier. My family would want me to play. While people maybe grieve in their own way, I found it easier to come in and play and try and do everyone proud.
Arter was embraced by his manager Eddie Howe at the final whistle, and Howe praised him for how Arter has handled himself this week. For his part, Arter had some great words of praise for the Bournemouth community, and he dedicated the win to his family:
I said before the game that one reason I wanted to play was to dedicate the game to everyone associated with my family - my family that are here and not here.
The support of everyone at the club is why I felt like I wanted to play as well. They have been unbelievable for me this week and made things a tad easier. I am sure my partner at home will be really proud too. It's a game that we can look back on with a lot of pride.
