The Spurs continued their league campaign with another promising victory.

Tottenham defeated Bournemouth 2-0 in their Premier League game on Saturday. Ange Postecoglou’s men built on their victory over Manchester United to claim another well-deserved win.

Ange-ball on full display!

Tottenham started pushing for the opener right from the start, with Neto denying James Maddison with a brilliant save in the 14th minute.

The former Leicester City star, however, needed only three more minutes to break the deadlock at the Vitality Stadium. Following a brilliant through pass from Pape Matar Sarr, Maddison nodded to ball past Neto to register his maiden Spurs goal.

Bournemouth bounced back to create a few serious chances before the break. But Tottenham held on to their lead, finally scoring their second goal of the afternoon in the 63rd minute.

After completing a fantastic one-two down the left-hand side of the box, Destiny Udogie provided a precise cutback for Dejan Kulusevski. The former Juventus star then poked the ball past Neto to double the visitors’ lead.

Tottenham had a few more chances to increase their lead but settled for the 2-0 win. Another balanced display from the Spurs sends them to the top of the Premier League table with seven points.

Bournemouth vs Tottenham: Man of the Match

James Maddison deserves the Man of the Match title after another fantastic display in the middle of the park. In addition to his commanding presence in the midfield, Maddison scored his side’s opening goal with a well-timed run past Bournemouth’s backline.
