Wayne Rooney then doubled the visitors’ advantage after half-time, before Zlatan Ibrahimovic fired home in the 64th minute to net his first Premier League goal on his debut in the English top flight.
Adam Smith then pulled a goal back for Eddie Howe’s side when he smashed the ball into the top corner from 14 yards out.
