Commentary By

Full time...

We've been beaten 1-0 but it's very very tight.

By no means outclassed, some positives to take into the Stoke game next week.

Thank you for following, we'll see you for a big game against Stoke City next weekend.

90: Begovic booked...

It's FIVE on ONE in Spurs' favour and they work it well to get into a really good position, Nkoudou the sub looks set to score but Begovic somes out to foul him right on the edge.

He gets a foot on the ball first from the looks of a replay.

90: Chance for Spurs on the break...

We pile men forward and Sissoko nicks it, he crosses a perfect centre for Alli who somehow nods wide.

Think Franno did enough.

88: What a block from Cook!

Trippier cut it back to Dier who backheels and then has the whole goal to aim for, but Cook again throws himself at it to make a sensational block to deny a certain goal.


73,502. We took 3,000 of that - and some good support behind the goal too!

84: Booking...

Vertonghen with a clear bookable foul on Ibe.

Ibe skinned him and the Belgian pulled him back.

83: Final sub...

Mousset is coming on for Lewis Cook.

Go on Lys!

81: Save!

Big stop from Begovic!

Eriksen smashed a left footed effort from the edge and Begovic was at full stretch to tip it away.

Top save.

Keep going lads!

77: SAVE!

Instant impact from Ibe and JD!

Ibe slips in the striker and his low effort at the near which is well saved by Lloris!

That is close!

72: A double sub for us...

Jermain Defoe and Jordon Ibe are coming on.

They'll replace Adam Smith and Junior Stanislas. 

Jermain gets a huge ovation from the Spurs crowd.

68: Decent opening!

Stanislas picks up a clever flick from Gosling and manages to get into the area, and he is about to shoot but is really well challenged!

Unlucky - a really good opening that!

62: Two massive chances for Spurs...

First, Harry Kane went in on goal and saw a tame effort saved by Begovic.

On the rebound, Alli picked out Kane again and he looked certain to score, but Begovic got down quickly to deny th striker again.

57: Goal ruled out for offside...

A great decision from the linesman as it's really tight.

A cross came in which Kane headed in from the penalty spot, but the linesman was quick to flag the England frontman.

The Cherries are still digging in despite falling a goal behind...

49: Save.

Winks get to the right side and swings in a cross which could sail over Begovic, but the stopper gets a good hand to it to palm it away from danger.

That cross could've gone anywhere.

47: Goal for Spurs.

Christian Eriksen scores.

The Dane gets it on the edge, Francis slides in but the midfielder manages to find a finish into the bottom corner.

In all fairness, an excellent strike.

Cherries a goal down.

46: We're back underway...

Son kicks us off and the game restarts.

The boys are back out...

We'll be attacking our end this half.

Those Cherries fans behind the goal will help our cause.

Come on lads!

Half time...

A really good half for us.

We've defended stoutly.

One chance for Spurs that Harry Kane could've scored, but Hugo Lloris has made a great save to stop Toby Alderweireld scoring an own goal.


45: One minute of added time...

As the title suggests, one minute to end the half.

38: Smith booked...

Everyone seems a bit perplexed.

He slid in on Vertonghen, didn't touch the man, but is booked by Robert Madeley.

Smithy gets stuck in...

33: Chance

Alderweireld nods the resulting corner over the bar when well placed in the box.

Decent opening that. Two good chances for Spurs in the space of a minute.

32: Save!

A ball over the top from Eriksen is met by Kane in the box.

The striker looks certain to score, but it's a tame effort but still a really good stop from Begovic.

Lloris' crucial early save...

26: Booking for Cook...

Our first of the game, Steve Cook.

He made a late challenge on Kane in a wide area. No malice, probably a fair yellow.

Go on Kingy!

19: Big save!

A corner gets whip in by Junior, it comes off Aldeweireld and Lloris makes an excellent save down low!

The rebound creates a scramble as we try and force it in, then Lewis Cook smashes a shot which whizzes narrowly over!

A big double chance, unlucky!

18: Huge chance!!!

Smith pulls the ball back for Stanislas just inside the area and he curls a lovely effort which is surely going in...

But for Davinson Sanchez to block it! So so close to 1-0!

15: Great block!

Alli managed to get a yard of space on the edge of the box and he lets an effort fly, but for Cook to chuck himself at it to make a really impressive block.

Spurs upping the ante here.

13: Good defending!

Alli flicks it to Eriksen who is able to stride into the box and looks to get a shot away.

Some excellent defending from the skipper though, reading the situation, clears any danger.

10: An uneventful start...

Neither side has created a clear cut chance.

Spurs have probably had more of the ball, but we're by no means being outclassed.

Not a bad start from us.

We are underway!

Another big game in the Premier League, Gosling gets us underway here.

Come on boys!

The teams are out...

Led out by Franno, the two sides are on the pitch!

Fans behind the goal creating plenty of noise - come on lads!

The warm ups...

Are complete! The lads helped support Kick It Out in the warm up today, and both teams are now in the dressing rooms. We're almost at kick-off!

Spurs' Wembley record...

Well, they're there to be got at for sure.

Spurs are yet to win at Wembley in the league this season.

They've beaten Borussia Dortmund in the Champions League, but have drawn to Burnley, Swansea and lost to Chelsea here in the league.

Is that a good sign for us?

Live commentary...

Just following our text updates?

Why don't you sign in and get some free live audio commentary from Wembley courtesy of BBC Radio Solent!

Just log in and click 'listen' and you'll hear the dulcet tones of Kris Temple and Cherries legend John Williams.

Just under 30 minutes 'til kick-off...

The Cherries faithful are beginning to crowd behind the goal and in the bottom corner.

We'll have 3000 supporters here today, a top effort and a full allocation.

Hopefully, a day to remember!

The squad...

Are out for the warm up!

Spurs players aren't out yet, leaving it a bit late maybe!

Eddie has his say...

Much like Charlie Daniels earlier, the manager has to complete a pre-match interview.

Here's what he had to say: "The league table doesn't show that our performances have improved.

"But we will have to be at our very best today to get something."

A big day for this man...

After a man of the match display in our last game, Lewis Cook retains his place for the Wembley clash.

The youngster has certainly looked a lot more accomplished this campaign and it's another stage for him to impress today!

We have arrived...

One to watch...

For all of Spurs' attacking talents, one to watch today could be new signing Davinson Sanchez.

The Lilywhites forked out a fee in the region of Β£42m in the summer,  the previous record was Β£30m which Spurs paid Newcastle for Moussa Sissoko.

A cultured centre-back, he caught the eye with an accomplished performance against Borussia Dortmund in the Champions League.

Two changes...

The two changes, Steve Cook and Dan Gosling in for Marc Pugh and Jermain Defoe, seem to bring with them a change of shape.

We'll play five at the back, and it looks like a diamond in midfield.

We think it will be Stanislas at the top of the diamond, but we'll have to wait and see!

Team news is in!

No Jermain Defoe for the Cherries today, he's on the bench.

Lewis Cook retains his place as we go with three centre-backs this afternoon.

Cherries XI: Begovic; A Smith, Francis, S Cook, Ake, Daniels; Surman, L Cook, Gosling, Stanislas; King.

Subs: Boruc, Arter, Pugh, Ibe, Mousset, Afobe, Defoe.

Did you know...

Today will be just the fifth time the two sides have met in league football.

It hasn't been too good for us, we've won one of those five and taken just one point in the Premier League.

But records are there to be broken! There's a confident mood in the camp.

Pre-match interview...

Premier League regulations mean we have to put a player forward for a pre-match interview.

Charlie Daniels is the man this week, and he said: "Spurs are a force to be reckoned with.

"We will have to be on top of our game, we need to put in a dominant performance."

As for us...

The international break came at a bad time again for the Cherries.

After a dominant display against Leicester that should have yielded three points, Eddie Howe believes the side are getting back to their best.

Ryan Fraser and Joshua King are doubts for the game, while Brad Smith suffered a 'nasty' hip injury according to the boss.

Harry Kane...

Is the talk of the country with his excellent form.

Last month alone he netted 13 times for club and country.

Cherries fans may be fearing the worst but he is yet to score a league goal at Wembley this campaign.

Team news...

As always, team news will be with us at 2pm and you'll be the first to see it here on the live blog.

Will Eddie change the system for an in-form Spurs? Who will he select?

Stay tuned and we'll be the first to bring you our side.


To Wembley!

It's our first visit to the home of football since 1998, and it's another big game against Tottenham Hotspur.

We're looking for our first win on the road... What a place this would be to get it!
