25-year-old must be axed: Three things learned about Tottenham in win v Bournemouth
COMMENT by Russell Edge
Tottenham secured their first home league victory at Wembley as they nicked a 1-0 win over a struggling Bournemouth side.
Christian Eriksen’s second half strike, coming just minutes after the break, was enough to see off the Cherries, who were resolute at the back but struggled to threaten Hugo Lloris in the Tottenham goal.
It could, and probably should, have been more for Spurs, but Harry Kane was uncharacteristically wasteful in front of goal, with Asmir Begovic pulling off several saves to deny the England striker.
The result means Spurs remain third in the table, five points behind league leaders Manchester City, while now just three points behind second placed Manchester United.
So what can Spurs fans take away from their side’s victory over a side placed 19th in the league?
