Bournemouth vs Tottenham LIVE!

Ange Postecoglou takes his Spurs side to the south coast today as he looks to maintain what has been a highly promising start to life in the Tottenham dugout. Last week’s win over Manchester United injected some serious momentum into Spurs ahead of this tricky trip.

Tottenham came from two goals down to win at the Vitality Stadium last season before suffering a last-minute defeat to the Cherries at home, in one of many nadirs of their disastrous finish to the campaign. Postecoglou will be keen to show that things are different, if no less frenetic, this time around.

Andoni Iraola has enjoyed a decent start to life at Bournemouth and is still looking for his first Premier League win on a tough opening run of fixtures. Follow Bournemouth vs Tottenham LIVE via Standard Sport’s matchday blog, featuring expert analysis from Dom Smith at the ground!

14:11 , Giuseppe Muro

14:05 , Giuseppe Muro

72 mins: Maddison is given an huge ovation by the away fans as he heads off and is replaced by Skipp. Lo Celso is also coming on for Bissouma.

14:00 , Giuseppe Muro

70 mins: That should be game over. Maddison goes clean through but drags a shot wide when he should have done better.

Dom Smith at the Vitality Stadium

13:57 , Giuseppe Muro

Excellent work from Udogie for that assists. A lovely give-and-go with Son, before Udogie reached the by-line and fired across for Kulusevski’s cute finish. Brilliant from the Italian, and brilliant from Spurs.

GOAL! Bournemouth 0-2 Tottenham | Dejan Kulusevski 63’

13:54 , Giuseppe Muro

Spurs have been on the back foot for most of the second half but Destiny Udogie crosses for Dejan Kulusevski to double their lead.

13:50 , Giuseppe Muro

59 mins: Hojbjerg for Sarr and Perisic for Richarlison.

13:49 , Giuseppe Muro

58 mins: Which Spurs clear. But here’s a double change for Spurs

13:48 , Giuseppe Muro

58 mins: Bournemouth come forward again and win a corner…

13:48 , Giuseppe Muro

56 mins: Spurs are hanging on now! Semenyo bends a brilliant shot from distance into the side-netting.

13:47 , Giuseppe Muro

54 mins: Bournemouth are looking really threatening here. Solanke spins off Van de Ven and drills the ball across the face of goal… but there is no one there to turn it in and Spurs clear.

Dom Smith at the Vitality Stadium

13:46 , Giuseppe Muro

Not Richarlison’s finest moment, that. He falls on the ball, and then stupidly slides in on Illia Zabarnyi while lying on the floor and as the Bournemouth defender is running away with the ball. He will have felt he needed to recover from the error, but a tackle from behind helps no one. Yellow card, and a deserved one too.

13:44 , Giuseppe Muro

54 mins: And now Richarlison is booked for a petulant kick out.

13:44 , Giuseppe Muro

53 mins: Booking for Bissouma as he gives away another free-kick. Spurs are on the back foot here.

13:41 , Giuseppe Muro

50 mins: The free-kick comes to nothing.

13:40 , Giuseppe Muro

49 mins: Bournemouth win a free-kick in a crossing position on the left. They’ve stared the second half brightly...

13:40 , Giuseppe Muro

48 mins: A bit more intensity about Bournemouth at the start of the second half but Christie puts a bit too much on a ball forward to Philip and a promising move comes to nothing.

13:36 , Giuseppe Muro

46 mins: Back underway at the Vitality! A change for the home side at the break, Cook is on for Rothwell in midfield.

13:32 , Giuseppe Muro

Another really positive 45 minutes from Spurs...

Dom Smith at the Vitality Stadium

13:23 , Giuseppe Muro

Could not have been closer from Philip. Was winding up that shot for an age. It crept wide, JUST. Final kick of a first half in which Spurs have been well on top. They are good value for their one-goal lead, but that final chance reminds them of the importance of finding a second goal.

HT: Bournemouth 0-1 Tottenham

13:23 , Giuseppe Muro

Spurs lead at the break.

13:22 , Giuseppe Muro

45+5 mins: Huge chance for Bournemouth at the end of the half! Philip whips a shot just wide!

13:15 , Giuseppe Muro

44 mins: More brilliant play from Maddison. He turns in midfield and tries to thread a ball through to Porro, but there is just too much on it.

13:12 , Giuseppe Muro

41 mins: Bournemouth come down the other end and Christie forces Vicario into a decent save with a powerful effort from range.

13:11 , Giuseppe Muro

40 mins: Another chance for Richarlison. Maddison whips a free-kick to back post and Richarlison heads into the side-netting. That was not easy in fairness.

13:09 , Giuseppe Muro

36 mins: Huge chance for Spurs! Oh Richarlison should score! Romero wins the ball on the edge of the area and Spurs break at pace. Maddison plays a though ball to Richarlison but he can’t get a shot away and Bournemouth scramble clear.

13:05 , Giuseppe Muro

34 mins: Udogie gives away a cheap free-kick in a crossing position on the right. Bournemouth send a high cross into the box but a header from Philip is comfortably saved by Vicario.

Dom Smith at the Vitality Stadium

13:03 , Giuseppe Muro

A Bournemouth fan has just stood up and shouted “Cheat, You’re a cheat” at James Maddison while he took a drink during a stoppage in play. Maddison simply smiled, winked, and pointed to the scoreboard which reads Bournemouth 0-1 Tottenham...

13:00 , Giuseppe Muro

28 mins: Spurs have taken control since the goal but Bournemouth threaten as they work it well down the left and have a shot well blocked by a Spurs defender.

Dom Smith at the Vitality Stadium

12:58 , Giuseppe Muro

Richarlison has just opened play up with a really smart knock-on header, allowing Kulusevski to go on and advance up the pitch. It didn’t come to anything, but there is a microcosm of how the Brazilian can be an effective centre-forward for Tottenham. I’ve always felt his aerial prowess has been underestimated.

12:58 , Giuseppe Muro

Here’s the Spurs goal...

12:56 , Giuseppe Muro

25 mins: Spurs are well on top now. Bournemouth clear a corner straight Son on the edge of the area and he volleys just wide.

12:53 , Giuseppe Muro

22 mins: More great play from Spurs. Maddison releases Son, he holds the ball up, plays in back to Sarr and he should do better as he scuffs a weak shot straight at Neto. There’s real confidence about Spurs here.

Dom Smith at the Vitality Stadium

12:51 , Giuseppe Muro

It didn’t feel as though anyone else on this pitch was going to score the opener here other than Maddison. He has been involved in everything Spurs have done right in the opening 18 minutes, and slips Sarr’s beautiful through-ball passed Neto and in. Lovely goal.

GOAL! Bournemouth 0-1 Tottenham | James Maddison 17’

12:47 , Giuseppe Muro

Maddison is up and running in a Spurs shirt! Bissouma and Sarr link up on the edge of the area, Sarr wights a brilliant through ball to split the Bournemouth defence and Maddison guides the ball past Neto.

12:45 , Giuseppe Muro

14 mins: Big chance for Spurs! Neto gives the ball straight to Maddison, he plays a one-two win Son, is clean through on goal but shoots straight at Neto.

12:43 , Giuseppe Muro

12 mins: Bournemouth win a corner on the left but Spurs deal with it

Dom Smith at the Vitality Stadium

12:41 , Giuseppe Muro

Really physical start to this game. A couple of robust challenges have gone in on Yves Bissouma, one by Philip Billing on Richarlison, and then a clip on James Maddison that referee Tim Robinson gave a foul for. No lack of bite in the early stages here.

12:41 , Giuseppe Muro

10 mins: This is good from Spurs. Udogie wins a corner on the left, which is cleared.

12:40 , Giuseppe Muro

9 mins: Spurs work it well, Maddison is heavily involved, the ball falls to Maddison inside the area but he scuffs a shot on the turn and Bournemouth clear.

12:39 , Giuseppe Muro

8 mins: The game has settled down a bit now. Maddison gets a whack but is quickly back on his feet.

12:37 , Giuseppe Muro

5 mins: There is a new energy to Spurs under Postecoglou. Maddison is seeing a lot of the ball early on.

12:34 , Giuseppe Muro

3 mins: Bournemouth have made a positive start but Spurs come forward, Son drives into the area but his cross is cut out. A fast start to the game.

12:32 , Giuseppe Muro

1 mins: Spurs get it wrong trying to play out from the back and Bournemouth win an early corner, which is cleared. Risky from Spurs early on.


12:30 , Giuseppe Muro

We’re underway on the south coast!

12:26 , Giuseppe Muro

Here come the two teams! Spurs led by captain Heung-min Son

The rain has started cascading down here at one of the Premier League’s most open-air stadiums. It bodes well for the entertainment. Less so for my laptop…

12:13 , Giuseppe Muro

Asked about naming an unchanged side and what he was looking for from his team today, Postecoglou said: “More than anything, a little bit of cohesion.

“We are still very early on and you see the players are still developing relationships. With the way the lads finished the game off, I thought a bit of fluency would help us. Looking forward to today. Another good test for us.”

Postecoglou: Hopefully we can produce some magic

12:06 , Giuseppe Muro

Ange Postecoglou has been speaking to TNT Sport ahead of kick-off.

“When you come in as a manager you come in because things have not been going well,” he said. “It is about trying to cut the chords to any baggage in the room. It is a cliché but it is a fresh start for everyone.

“I have got the energy to try and build something and you try to relay that to the players and get them to open their eyes and feel good about playing for a fantastic football club, and hopefully we produce some magic with them.”

12:02 , Giuseppe Muro

More from James Maddison on how he is settling in at Spurs.

Speaking to TNT Sports, he said: “It is a massive club. You get that feel from the get-go. You get that feel when you are around the club, the stadium and the training facilities.

“We have had an OK start and we are looking to push on. The manager was a big pull for me. He had got a way about him. He is an honest, straight-down-the-line man and when he talks you believe what he is saying. The way he wants to play is non-negotiable. That football suits me. It is attacking football and freedom, everything I believe in.”

11:57 , Giuseppe Muro

11:43 , Giuseppe Muro

No Eric Dier in the Spurs squad for the third game in a row. A look inside the away dressing room...

11:37 , Giuseppe Muro

Naming the same XI that beat Manchester United so deservedly last weekend feels like the sensible decision from Ange Postecoglou.

Spurs are such a young team but Postecoglou seems to see that as the route to sustainable success.

A big boost for Spurs to have Maddison fit.

11:35 , Giuseppe Muro

So James Maddison starts and Spurs are unchanged from the team that beat Manchester United last weekend.

Two changes for Bournemouth, including a first start for Justin Kluivert.

Team news: Maddison starts for Spurs

11:33 , Giuseppe Muro

Bournemouth XI: Neto, Aarons, Zabarnyi, Kelly, Kerkez, Christie, Rothwell, Semenyo, Billing, Kluivert, Solanke

Subs: Radu, Cook, Mepham, Brooks, Moore, Traore, Hill, Senesi, Anthony

Tottenham XI: Vicario, Porro, Romero, Van de Ven, Udogie, Sarr, Bissouma, Kulusevski, Maddison, Son, Richarlison

Subs: Forster, Skipp, Hojbjerg, Sanchez, Emerson, Perisic, Lo Celso, Solomon, Davies

11:28 , Giuseppe Muro

Spurs are here! Team news coming up...

11:19 , Giuseppe Muro

James Maddison has confirmed he is fit to start for Tottenham.

Speaking to TNT Sport before the game, Maddison said: “I have recovered well. I took a little bit of a knock but nothing major and I am good to go.”

Full team news to come in 10 minutes…!

11:13 , Giuseppe Muro

Ange Postecoglou has not ruled out adding further new signings to his squad before next week’s transfer deadline, but reiterated the focus remains outgoings for now.

“These kind of things are pretty fluid; they can happen pretty quickly. At the moment you can see by doing the maths we have got too many players in terms of when we submit our final list.

“There will be guys here who won’t be on that list if nothing changes so I am pretty sure that will change. From now until the end of the window I am sure there will be some movement.”


11:06 , Giuseppe Muro

Ange Postecoglou has said forming a new leadership group at Tottenham was key to bringing success back to the club - and defended his decision to not include Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg.

“You can’t keep doing everything the same and expect a different outcome. It’s pretty obvious. I’ve always done that wherever I’ve done.

“Unless I change things, personnel or staff, or manner of playing, then what am I doing? I’m definitely not that arrogant to think that just me walking in is going to give us success.”

10:59 , Giuseppe Muro

Tottenham's encouraging and, perhaps, unexpected win over Manchester United last weekend left many fans brimming with optimism about the potential of Ange Postecoglou's side - and the club's new vice-captain Cristian Romero is no different.

"I'm someone who thinks nothing is impossible, so if we keep up this level let's see [what we can achieve]," Romero told Standard Sport this week. "All I ask from people is to trust us.

"All the players are going to give everything, along with the staff, to take Tottenham as high as possible and try to win trophies. Things take time, but if we're together, I believe we can achieve great things."

New signing Tyler Adams will have to wait for his debut after arriving from Leeds with a long-standing hamstring issue.

Midfielder Lewis Cook is close to recovering from a groin problem, while Dango Outtara, Alex Scott and Marcus Tavernier are still sidelined.

Tottenham team news

10:17 , Giuseppe Muro

Tottenham head coach Ange Postecoglou has confirmed James Maddison is available.

The midfielder left the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium in a protective boot following last week’s 2-0 win against Manchester United but is fit for the trip to the Vitality Stadium.

Postecoglou said on Friday: “He trained fully, unrestricted, and we’ll see how he is after training and make a final call tomorrow, but good to see him get through training and at this point, it looks like he’ll be available.

“I think it was the incident when Romero got brought down, he had a shot, and it was a block tackle. His ankle was a bit sore after that. The medical team looked after him. People would have seen him in a moon boot and thin it’s more serious, but it was more precautionary.

“We’ve been pretty careful with him. There was no real push to have him available, we left it up to him. He has felt good and probably could have trained yesterday, but the medical team wanted to make sure he’s okay. Again, it just depends how he pulls up, but obviously nothing serious.”
