Tottenham Hotspur played hosts to Bournemouth at Wembley Stadium earlier this afternoon looking to keep their winning run going in the Premier League. Spurs started the match on the front foot and took the lead in the 16th minute courtesy of Christian Eriksen’s goal. The home team kept the pressure on and scored two more goals before half-time courtesy of Heung-min Son and Lucas Moura.
The North London outfit dominated possession in the second half and scored again through Harry Kane in the 61st minute before Heung-min Son put the icing on the cake with his second strike of the night from close range. The match ended with the final score of 5-0 in favour of Spurs as Mauricio Pochettino’s men climbed to the second place in the Premier League standings.
