Spurs’showed a little bit of everything’ to defeat Bournemouth.

Rodrigo Bentancur latched on to Neto’s nonchalant pass out from the back, and the ball broke for Sarr, who hammered it into the far corner.

Spurs, still smarting after a 4-2 loss to Brighton in midweek, watched as Bournemouth created plenty of chances and appeared likely to equalize.

However, the visitors lacked a precise edge in the final third, as Son Heung-min extended his team’s advantage with a brilliant left-footed effort that deflected off a post before Richarlison raced home to secure the points for Ange Postecoglou’s side.

Alex Scott scored a consolation goal, but the Cherries will be left wondering how they let the score slip away from them and leave London empty-handed.

Andoni Iraola’s team suffered their first defeat in eight games, as Dominic Solanke’s three-match scoring streak came to a stop.

Spurs are still fifth in the table, three points behind the leaders and one behind Arsenal in fourth.
