Well, we were so so close to getting a point there in the end with that late late chance!!


We thought we were out of it at 3-0 down but Harry Wilson's brace gave us hope!

We showed glimpses of our best there and on another day, maybe take a point.

But at full-time, Spurs squeeze past us.

Thanks so much for following today, hopefully we can do one better at Palace in midweek.

See you then, thank you for following!








Superb from Danjuma!!

He drives down the left-hand side and his cut back is so well finished by Harry Wilson!!

Superb stuff, can we get another!? There's about a minute left!!







A superb delivery from Rico is met by Gosling at the near post!

It hit the side netting but it looked in - with our fans cheering!

So so close, an inch away!


SIX minutes of added time...

Well, if we can get one early, you never know!!


Yellow card for Jefferson Lerma...

It looked as though he trod on Dele Alli's toe before a mass brawl ensued.

As ever, it was more argy bargy than anything else but nearly all the players were involved, with our players more trying to restrain the angry Spurs men.


HUGE chance for Gosling!

We work it really well again and Solanke beats Vertonghen on the right! He drills in a superb cut-back which the Spurs defence can't deal with, and the ball reaches Gosling in the penalty area unmarked!

He hits a low one which is blocked well, but with the position he was in, that was a huge chance.

Everyone in the press box gasped as it reached him - close!!


Blocked by Dier!

Harry Wilson denied!

Another good move sees Gosling sweep the ball wide for Wilson on the right.

He cuts inside and drives towards the middle of the goal and he hits a sweet effort which is goalbound!

But Dier was there and makes a brilliant block to stop the strike which looked very dangerous...


We're still giving it everything...


Save by Ramsdale...

Denies Alli his hat-trick.

Alli picked the ball up on the left-hand side and drifted infield towards the D.

He picked out a ferocious effort, but Ramsdale was on hand to tip it away superbly.

Ramsdale is having a superb season.


Huge chance for Son...

He gets in behind the backline at great speed and looks set to - at the very least - test Ramsdale.

He's slightly towards the left but Steve Cook does just enough, although if Son shoots he probably scores being how close he was to the net.


Another decent opening!

Danjuma gets one-on-one with the full-back Aurier and drives towards goal from the left-hand side.

He gets into the area and puts an excellent cross-shot into the mixer and Gazzaniga thinks about punching it but has to pull out at the last minute.



Subs for both sides...

Lewis Cook makes way for Dan Gosling and Lucas Moura comes on for Tanguy Ndombele.

Hopefully Gosling can give us something extra with some fresh legs in the middle of the pitch.


Well, back in it!!

An absolutely magical free-kick from Harry Wilson!

25-yards out and he curls it off the bar and in. That is absolutely sublime, hopefully it can help us gather some momentum now as we head into the final 15 minutes!






Good stop by Gazzaniga!

Lewis Cook gets the ball in space 25-yards out and takes a great touch out of his feet.

He doesn't go for power and curls one low towards the bottom corner, but the goalkeeper is there to tip it away.

From the resulting corner, there's an absolute melee but none of our players can turn it into the net!


Well, it looks like it's over now...

Unfortunately for us because we were so so bright in that first half.

Son crossed to the back post after a lightning counter and Sissoko is free at the back-post to volley it into the corner.

As I say, a real shame considering the first-half display but we've not been able to produce the same in the second so far.


3-0 Spurs.

Moussa Sissoko scores.


Rico is shown a yellow card...

Clear yellow card unfortunately.

Aurier was looking to run beyond him and Rico just shoved him, stopping him latching onto the pass.

Professional foul and a booking, he'll have to be careful as Aurier has been lively in this second-half.



Good play!

Some clever football on the edge of the box sees Lewis Cook play a superb reverse pass to Harry Wilson in the box.

He cuts onto his left-foot and curls one towards the top corner, but it flies over.

Better from us though! Wilson has made an immediate impact here.


Harry Wilson is on now...

He comes on for Ryan Fraser.

So it's Danjuma on the left now, with Harry Wilson now occupying the right touchline.

Hopefully a little shuffle around can have an impact, as Spurs have been on top for the entire half - must contrasting to the first.


Nearly 3-0...

A superb piece of defending from Steve Cook!

Aurier got into space on the right-hand side and drilled in a superb low cross.

There were Spurs players queuing at the back post for it, but somehow Steve Cook gets a leg to it with a superb slide tackle to hoist it away.

Really, really good defending.


We're going to change it up...

Harry Wilson is ready on the sidelines to come on.

He's just receiving final instructions from Jason Tindall in the dugout.

I'm not sure exactly who he'll come on for, but I predict it will be Danjuma.


Dele Alli should have a hat-trick...

It's a sitter really.

We lose it and Serge Aurier drives forward down the right-hand side.

The full-back gets a cross into Alli at the back-post and the England midfielder brings it down and looks set to score, but he blazes it over when very well placed.




Over from Wilson!

We keep the second phase of play alive from a corner and Fraser is able to dink in a delicate cross.

Wilson runs to the near, and similar to David Brooks' header against Brighton last season, he glances it onto the top of the net.

We're still fighting.


Another long ball from Alderweireld...

He zings a great pass from 50-yards over the top for Alli and again, he's running in behind to take it past Ramsdale and find the corner from inside the penalty area.

It's 2-0, and that could be a crucial time to concede that one.


GOAL for Spurs.

Alli scores again.


Early sighter for Spurs...

Sissoko hangs a high cross to the back-post from the right-hand side.

In fairness, it's a superb ball and looks set for Kane to meet it at the back-post, but Steve Cook does enough to just ease him away from the ball to stop that crucial touch.

We just need to keep it at 1-0 early doors in the half and we will get chances. Stay in the game!


Back underway...

A big half ahead!

Come on lads! No changes by either team at half-time as we resume play. 

We'll attack towards our travelling fans this half, hopefully we can give them something to shout about.



Well, Dele Alli's goal separates us but we have done more than enough to be level or ahead.

An encouraging first-half display, hopefully more to come in the second!

See you back here in 15 minutes, just going to get into the warm!


We're still on the front foot...

We are keeping the ball so well and are causing Spurs problems.

The latest sweeping move results in Danjuma getting to the edge of the box and curling a shot which was straight at Gazzaniga.

Genuinely, I'm not being bias here we're doing well, just that final decision in the final third perhaps needs to be sharper.

But a good performance so far!


Side netting from Son...

And again, it's because they counter on us.

Lerma almost slips Solanke in at the other end, but then the move gets intercepted and Spurs attack in numbers.

Kane slipped in Son and the South Korean got a good touch in the area, but the angle was tight and he volleyed it into the side netting.

A slight let off for us there...


A fine display from this man so far!


Another chance!

This time for Wilson!

He does really well 35-yards out, beating two players with a piece of skill.

He then drives towards goal and the space just opens up for him! 25-yards out, he smashes one at goal and it's wide, but if he slipped it to Danjuma on the right-hand side then he's in!

A big opening!



A great take!!!

So so unlucky! Lerma pings a ball to the right and Stacey is high in the penalty area. 

He checks inside onto his left with a lovely piece of skill, and curls a brilliant effort an inch past the post.

You can tell he used to be a winger, that was superb and we're unlucky not to be level.


Better from us!

We're still playing some lovely football!

First, Fraser and Rico combine well on the left and Rico's cross just can't reach Solanke.

Then the same passage of play sees Fraser get in a dangerous area on the left but his cross is smashed out of play.

It might not sound like much on the text, but it was threatening and we do look calmer after the goal.



Spurs have a goal disallowed, and it's the set play from Kane's shot which results in it.

The corner got swung in before Sissoko hit a powerful effort on the edge of the box. It took a deflection and went through a number of bodies before Sanchez hammered it in.

I personally didn't see anything wrong with it in the stands, but the replay shows a handball by Sanchez, he used his arm to control it before hitting it.

VAR has done well there...!


Top save by Ramsdale...

Almost 2-0.

Son and Kane combine to devastating effect, unfortunately for us.

They play a one-two and Kane gets in on his left-foot.

The angle is very tight, but he absolutely smashes it and Ramsdale saved with his legs! Top top stop!


Our bright start is undone...

It's a long-ball over the top from Toby Alderweireld that causes havoc.

He picks the ball up from centre-half and drifts one right into the heart of our defence.

Alli and Son are running in behind and it's a superb pass that finds Alli who scores into the corner.

Not what we deserved but we have to remain calm and keep doing what we've been doing this first 20 minutes.


GOAL for Spurs.

Dele Alli scores.


First real chance for Spurs...

And it's a lightning counter attack as we steam forward again.

After a move of ours breaks down, Kane gets the ball on the half-way line and pings a pass out wide to Son who is racing in behind down the left-wing.

He's got Steve Cook for company but he gets into the penalty area and fires a low effort with his left-foot wide of Ramsdale's post.

It had the Spurs fans on their feet for the first time in what's been a frustrating start to the game for them.


A good start from us!


Great tackle!

Steve Cook to the rescue.

Harry Kane drove into the penalty after picking the ball up from deep, as he tends to do with a real purpose.

It looks like he's just about to get half-a-yard to shoot ten-yards out, but Cook slides across with an inch-perfect tackle to ensure he can't shoot and the danger is cleared.

Absolutely superb defending from the skipper!



Diego Rico!

He takes a touch out of his feet from 30-yards and you wouldn't expect him to hit it...

But hit it he did and it was a superb effort, hit with real technique and accuracy which fizzed towards goal and it had Gazzaniga scrambling! 

He had to get down low and parry it away, it wasn't convincing but another save by the Spurs keeper!

Keep going lads!


Another decent opening!

Solanke again involved!

Steve Cook wraps a superb pass to Jack Stacey and the full-back gives it to Solanke high up the pitch.

He puts in a superb cross which Wilson nods over. It was a very difficult chance but we are enjoying getting the ball in good areas high up the pitch.

Solanke has started superbly in this game, plenty of selfless work from his so far.



And it's Gazzaniga who's made it!

We've started superbly here, a sweeping move from back to front eventually sees Solanke play the ball infield for Danjuma.

He takes a touch out of his feet onto his left-foot 20-yards out and it's curling and swerving and heading towards the bottom corner, but for Gazzaniga's parry!

We've looked very good to start this game... keep it up!


We are underway!

The Cherries get us started at Tottenham Hotspur Stadium and the away fans are in good voice to our left!

Good luck lads!


Our head to head record against Spurs...

...doesn't make great reading unfortunately!

Spurs have won all four of their Premier League home games against us by an aggregate score of 13-0.

Not ideal, but in our last meeting with Spurs, we earned our first ever league win against Spurs with Nathan Ake's last minute winner!

We've found it tough against Spurs in recent years but hopefully we can make some history at their new stadium.


Did you know?

Aaron Ramsdale has made 56 saves in the Premier League this season, more than any other goalkeeper.

What a start to the season he has had, but here's hoping he doesn't have too many more to make today!


The set piece kings are in town! ��

It's us of course!

Eight of our 16 league goals this season have come from set-piece situations, and that's not including penalties! That's the highest number and ratio in the whole division.


Just who is Christian Saydee?

He's an exciting striking prospect in the under-18s who has been called into Eddie Howe's first-team squad following an impressive start to 2019/20.

By the end of November, Saydee led the goalscoring charts for the under-18s with 13 and won the club's October goal-of-the-month award for a stunning 35-yard strike in a 4-2 win at Swindon.

He signed for Pro Touch Soccer Academy when he was nine before joining the youth ranks at Reading.

Born in Hillingdon, he spent seven-and-a-half years with the Royals before signing for the Cherries when he was 16.

A clear pathway for our academy players, which is fantastic to see!


Two academy boys!



The headlines from our starting XI are that Jack Stacey, Jefferson Lerma, Arnaut Danjuma and Dominic Solanke are our four changes from last weekend.

Elsewhere, Gavin Kilkenny and Christian Saydee are on the bench, which is great to see!

Go on boys!


Team news...

It's 30 minutes away.

We're without Joshua King which is a big blow, but we're also without Philip Billing and Simon Francis due to suspension.

There's also a late check to be had on Ryan Fraser, who picked up a dead leg against Wolves.

So we could see Arnaut Danjuma start, who looked extremely lively last week when he came on.

As for Spurs, defender Ben Davies will be out for an "extended period" because of the ankle injury he sustained at West Ham last week.

Hugo Lloris, Erik Lamela and Michel Vorm are the long-term absentees who are still out.


A great result!


The awesome stand!

Hopefully they won't be cheering today though!!


Need something to fill the morning?


What can we expect from Spurs?

Well, it's been an interesting few weeks hasn't it!

After the appointment of Jose Mourinho, Spurs are aiming for back-to-back Premier League wins for the first time this season after they beat West Ham United last week.

The Lilywhites seemed to have a spring in their step in their last two games against the Hammers and Olympiakos in the Champions League.

The performances have been probably un-Mourinho like in the sense they have conceded goals, but having scored seven in the past two, their attacking talent seems to be unleashed.

The only managers or head coaches to win their opening two Premier League matches at Spurs were Glenn Hoddle and Mauricio Pochettino, so Mourinho could join an exclusive club.



We've only been here five minutes, but our first reactions are... WOW what a stadium!

Welcome to Tottenham Hotspur Stadium, it's the Cherries' first ever visit here and we'll bring you all the preview and in-game action as we look to secure our second ever Premier League win against Spurs.

We've also got live audio commentary for you, all you have to do is have a valid email address to listen.

Here's hoping for our luck to turn today in the capital!
