Tottenham managed to pull off a really important victory against a hapless Bournemouth side and kept the pressure on table-toppers Chelsea, who face Manchester United on Sunday. The gap is now down to 4 points and if Chelsea lose to Manchester United, then it could be game on in the Premier League title race. Spurs are looking brilliant with every passing week and it would be really difficult for Chelsea if they lose points as Tottenham would surely capitalise on anything that would be available to them.
They beat the Cherries by a 4-0 margin, as Son Heung-min, Mousa Dembele, Harry Kane and Vincent Janssen were all on target for Spurs. While Janssen would be happy that he got his first open play goal this season in the Premier League, the talk after the game was all about Harry Kane, who doesn’t seem to know how to stop scoring goals.
He made his return against Watford in the previous game after making a quick recovery from his injury and has now scored in his first start since injuring himself against Millwall in the FA Cup a few weeks back. Tottenham fans expressed their joy on Twitter, as Harry Kane set an insane record of scoring 20+ Premier League goals in 3 consecutive seasons. Only Alan Shearer, Thierry Henry and Ruud Van Nistelrooy had done it before.
While Ruud Van Nistelrooy did it for 3 seasons, Shearer did it for 4 consecutive seasons. Arsenal Legend Thierry Henry holds the record with 5 consecutive seasons and Tottenham’s own Harry Kane might just be able to achieve the same. In what is looking like a stellar career in the making, Kane is simply scoring goals for fun.
We managed to gather few tweets about Harry Kane and boy we have to say that the Spurs faithful are delighted about Harry’s performances.
Harry Kane is a goal scoring machine. ⚽️

Tottenham interested in signing 22-year-old Serie A ace as possible replacement for Toby Alderweireld
The 22-year-old Sampdoria defender has eight Serie A appearances this season and has helped the side to fifth place in the table.
The report claims that Alderweireld has been linked with moves to Barcelona and Manchester United. The Dane joined the Serie A side from FC Twente last season for a fee of €4million (h/t Calciomercato).
The report adds that Juventus and Inter Milan are interested in the 22-year-old, and the Milan club has a history of signing players from Sampdoria.
Milan Skriniar joined Inter from Sampdoria in 2017 and has become one of the best defenders in the league. The report further claims that Sampdoria president Massimo Ferrero wants at least €30million for the defender.
Tottenham have a problem with Alderweireld as the report claims his contract is up in 2019 and could leave for free if terms are not agreed on a new deal.
The Belgian is one of the best defenders in the Premier League and losing him would be a big blow. Spurs have a great partnership between Jan Vertonghen and Alderweireld and we must look to keep the pair for as long as possible.
Andersen could be a decent option for Spurs should we sign him on the cheap. Tottenham have Davinson Sanchez as the other defender fighting for a starting spot in the heart of the defence currently and Andersen would be a good choice.
“No, of course not” – Young Tottenham star ready to play for England U21 despite featuring for senior side
Harry Winks is ready to play for the England U21 side and follow the footsteps of Harry Kane. The U21 side have qualified for the Euros and the midfielder was asked if he had any issues playing for the U21s.
The Englishman was quoted by the Evening Standard as saying:
“No, of course not.
“The more games I play the better. I have missed a lot of football with my ankle injury and I’ve had a lot of problems with it still to this day.
“I have to manage it at times, but playing for your country is an honour, regardless of the level; under 21s, under 19s, under 18s, under 17s.
Kane played for the U21s in the 2015 European Championship despite playing for the senior side a couple of months earlier, as per the report.
The Tottenham midfielder played the entire 90 minutes for the Three Lions in their 3-2 win over Spain and put up a good performance.
The 21-year-old had an injury-plagued 2017/18 season but seems to have put those concerns behind him in the current campaign.
Winks has a couple of Premier League starts to his name and should have a big role to play as we look to win silverware under Mauricio Pochettino. He is such a great talent and we’d benefit a lot if he fulfills his potential at Tottenham.
Tottenham interested in January move for £15m West Brom attacker
Tottenham are interested in West Bromwich Albion winger Oliver Burke, according to the Sun (h/t Express). The Scot has a goal from two Carabao Cup appearances for the Baggies this season but hasn’t made a start in the Championship.
The report adds that Tottenham and Newcastle scouts watched the 21-year-old against Blackpool last week. The 21-year-old was a rising star for Nottingham Forest and joined RB Leipzig in the 2016/17 season.
Burke failed to make an impression for the Baggies as they were relegated from the Premier League. The youngster failed to score a goal for the team, and the report adds that the player will not come on the cheap.
Tottenham did not sign a single player in the summer, and it will be interesting to see how we deal with the January transfer window.
Burke hasn’t been great in the past two years but working under Mauricio Pochettino could be the right move for the youngster.
Our manager has done extremely well with young talent at Tottenham such as Dele Alli, Harry Winks and Harry Kane and it remains to be seen if he can work his magic again.
