Match ends, Bournemouth 3, MK Dons 0.
Bournemouth maintained their unbeaten start to the season with a comfortable win over League Two MK Dons to reach the third round of the Carabao Cup.
Lys Mousset beat one defender and fired the Premier League side's first goal after a pass by Ryan Fraser.
Fraser, the only survivor from the side that started Saturday's 2-2 draw with Everton, made it 2-0 following a superb break involving Jordon Ibe.
Former Liverpool player Ibe added the third with a fierce strike.
Cherries boss Eddie Howe stated before the game that he believed his side was capable of winning a trophy this season.
They were embarrassed by League One Wigan in last season's FA Cup third round but this was a clinical performance by a much-changed Bournemouth side.
Summer signings Diego Rico and Jefferson Lerma both made their first appearances.
Rico almost scored, striking the bar with a free-kick at 2-0.
MK Dons, second in League Two, were unbeaten in six matches before this game.
Substitute Osman Sow went close to a late consolation goal with a shot on the turn that fizzed just wide.
Bournemouth manager Eddie Howe: "I'm very pleased. There were some great goals, but being picky as I am, I would like to have seen us keep up our levels in the second half.
"We were really intense - good in and out of possession. The game slowed down in the second half but overall we were very good."
MK Dons boss Paul Tisdale: "It was always going to be a tough game. I thought we did well - I'm really proud of the players.
"Yes, we've lost the game and we feel a little bit flat because of that but we've gained a lot. Am I going home distraught? No. I'm actually going home more pleased than unhappy."
