AFC Bournemouth vs. Tottenham Hotspur - Football Match Report

May JohnsonMay 05, 2019

Tottenham lost 1-0 to Bournemouth as Spurs' Champions League qualification hopes take a hit, while Cardiff City and Liverpool face must-wins later in the day.

Bournemouth struggled to make their numerical advantage count until Nathan Ake climbed highest to meet a corner and head a dramatic victor in the 90th minute.

Spurs had two red cards as Son Heung-min and Juan Foyth were sent off in the matter of a six-minute span.

The Cherries are still on course for their record Premier League points tally after beating nine-man Tottenham on Saturday, but Howe said after full-time he felt the pressure to make sure next season went one step further.

Pochettino wrung the changes at half-time as he withdrew Dier and Toby Alderweireld for Victor Wanyama and Foyth - only to see the Argentina worldwide dismissed two minutes and 13 seconds into the second half for a reckless tackle.

For all intents and purposes, though the game was decided through the Spurs' indiscipline.

And they put in a good display in the first half at the Vitality Stadium.

Travers quickly found his feet with a string of superb saves, turning away a powerful drive and a testing header from Dele Alli, as well as twice denying Lucas Moura as he exploited space behind a haphazard Bournemouth back line.

Travers was almost beaten by a shot unleashed by Lucas Moura from the half-way line as he was caught off his line in the opening exchanges, before his started to show his class with a series of saves to deny Tottenham.

Travers became the first teenage Premier League goalkeeper to start a match since Joe Hart in October 2006 and he soon showed why he was deserving of such faith. "Huge potential, we think this is an ideal game for him to show what he is capable of".

Yet there was no escape for Son on 43 minutes when he was sent off for striking Jefferson Lerma in the face following a tussle with the Colombia global.

It was a moment of madness and his red card was deserved.

Bournemouth's Wilson glanced a header wide, Nathaniel Clyne came close and Lloris had to make saves from distance as the home side failed to carve out too many clear-cut opportunities, with Fraser's late corner causing mayhem but somehow Spurs cleared.
