Dele Alli of Tottenham

Tottenham continued their chase for the Premier League crown with a convincing 4-0 win over Bournemouth at White Hart Lane.

Son Heung-min, Harry Kane, Mousa Dembele and Vincent Janssen got on the score sheet in a dominant display and helped Tottenham register their seventh consecutive win in the Premier League.

The victory was also their 15th win at home and 11th clean sheet of the season. Spurs did close the gap to Chelsea to four points but the Blues have a game in hand on their London rivals.

There were a number of stars for the Lilywhites at the Lane and we share the player ratings from the game.

Hugo Lloris – 8/10

The Tottenham captain didn’t really have a lot to do in the game and had just one notable save to speak off. A decent day at the office for the Frenchman.

Kyle Walker – 7.5/10

The right-back was his normal self as he probed the Bournemouth defence on a number of times. He wasn’t tested all that much by Eddie Howe’s men and will expect tougher challengers in the days to come.

Toby Alderweireld – 7/10

Another player who had an easy day at the office, Alderweireld was great at organising the defence with his countryman beside him.

Jan Vertonghen – 8/10

Vertonghen was excellent with his passing and even though he was another player not tested in defence, the Belgian didn’t put a foot wrong in the game.

Ben Davies – 7.5/10

Davies wasn’t tested all that much by the Bournemouth attack and had a lot of freedom to join the Spurs attack during the game.

Eric Dier – 8/10

Dier was given a chance to shine in midfield and shine he did. He was all over the Bournemouth midfield and helped create the goal for Son by getting the ball off Jack Wilshere, which would have pleased the fans.

Mousa Dembele – 10/10

It’s rare for someone to get a perfect score but Dembele had the best game in a Spurs jersey in a while. He started the scoring from a corner and had a number of chances to extend the lead. Dembele was excellent with his passing as well and didn’t put a foot wrong in the game.      

Christian Eriksen – 7/10

The only reason Eriksen didn’t get a higher rating is due to the fact he couldn’t score a goal. The Dane was brilliant with his passing and movement and only lacked the killer touch to cap off a brilliant game.

Dele Alli – 7/10

The Englishman had a rather quiet game against the Cherries but even though he didn’t score, he had a decent game without making major mistakes.

Son Heung-min – 9/10

The South Korean scored in his fourth consecutive game and was one of the best attackers on the pitch for Spurs.

Harry Kane – 9/10

Kane had a wonderful game for Tottenham as he created the goal for Son and added to the scoring with his own effort. He does seem to be a little rusty at times but surely he is set to be at his best in a week or two.

Substitutes:

Victor Wanyama – 6/10

Wanyama didn’t really have a lot to do in the game with the match already won but he was decent in his defensive role.

Moussa Sissoko – 6/10

Sissoko tried his best but couldn’t match the performances of some of the other players in the game.

Vincent Janssen – 8/10

Janssen might have been on the pitch for a few minutes but he did score his first goal from open play for Tottenham.

Ryan Mason Tottenham

Ryan Mason

Former Tottenham star Ryan Mason’s football career came to a premature end after he picked up a skull fracture while playing for Hull City.

The former Spurs was facing Chelsea and hung his boots in 2018 but is adored by many fans.

Now 27, the midfielder shared a video of him scoring a goal for us four years ago and what a strike it was from the Englishman.

This was Mason’s first goal for Spurs and it came in a League Cup fixture against Nottingham Forest.

The midfielder might not have been the most gifted player ever but he always gave 100% on the pitch and his move to Hull City, unfortunately, did not work out.

Mason played for numerous clubs in the English system, serving stints at Millwall, Yeovil Town and Doncaster Rovers.

The former Spurs star also had one cap for the England national side in 2015 and a number of fans tweeted their love for the player after his post.

“Most entertaining”, “The ending…” – Some Spurs fans love latest advert featuring accommodation partner

Vorm Eriksen Tottenham

Tottenham posted a video of their tie-up with Hotels.com, our official accommodation partner, and it was an interesting video, to say the least.

Spurs players Christian Eriksen, Michel Vorm, Ben Davies and Juan Foyth participated in some “hotel-related” drills in the two-minute long ad.

It was fun to see Eriksen and co carrying luggage around an obstacle course while the Dane also dropped drinks glasses from his tray.

There were a few laughs too as Vorm wasn’t able to fold the quilt in the right manner and some of the fans saw the funny side of the video.

Tottenham haven’t started the season well and were lucky to get all three points against Brighton in our previous game. However, it was nice to see the players having a great time in the fun advert.

The video certainly was done pretty well and the ending is something to behold too.

Jack Grealish

Jack Grealish

Jack Grealish has signed a new five-year deal with Aston Villa that includes a huge release clause, according to the Sun.

The report adds that Tottenham offered £25million for the midfielder in the summer. But to sign him now, we would have to double the amount.

Grealish was one of the stars for the Villans last season but they missed out on promotion to the Premier League.

Villa aren’t doing well in the Championship as they lie 13th with 13 points from nine games. Grealish is yet to score for his boyhood club in the ongoing term.

With his selling price doubled, as per the report, some Tottenham fans weren’t sure about the club making a move for the player while a few blamed Daniel Levy for botching the transfer.
