Bournemouth 1 Spurs 4

The team produced a tremendous response to the early setbacks of conceding to Junior Stanislas and losing Harry Kane to injury to blow away Bournemouth on the south coast.

Questions were asked of us when, coming off of a midweek defeat to Juventus in the Champions League, we were floored by Bournemouth’s whirlwind start which saw Stanislas hit the bar before giving his side the lead inside seven minutes.


And there was more consternation when top scorer Harry Kane limped off with an ankle injury on the half-hour mark – exactly a year ago to the weekend since he suffered a similar problem against Millwall in the FA Cup.

But the character shown by the team soon allayed any fears. With Christian Eriksen magnificent in the middle of the park, Dele Alli swept home the equaliser 10 minutes prior to half-time, before turning provider for Heung-Min Son to volley into the ground and past goalkeeper Asmir Begovic for 2-1 shortly beyond the hour mark.


It was one-way traffic in the second period as we dominated the game, with Son bagging a deserved second when Eriksen won the ball and played him clean through on goal from inside our own half, before Serge Aurier headed home in stoppage time to complete a 4-1 victory.

Sunday afternoon’s result at the Vitality Stadium sees us move up into third place in the Premier League table ahead of next Saturday’s FA Cup quarter-final at Swansea City.
