“Wow wow wow”, “Real title contenders”: Some Tottenham fans on cloud nine after brilliant 5-0 win + Match report

Tottenham 5-0 Bournemouth: Son Heung-min brace fires Spurs to 2nd spot

Tottenham Hotspur continued their fine run in the Premier League with an emphatic 5-0 drubbing of Bournemouth at Wembley on Boxing Day.

The victory took Mauricio Pochettino’s men to 2nd place in the standings, with Manchester City suffering a 2-1 defeat away from home against Leicester City.

Bournemouth started the game the brighter of the two teams and had a couple of good chances to open the scoring. Jefferson Lerma’s lobbed pass found David Brooks in a one-on-one situation with Hugo Lloris but the star of the last game failed to chip it over the goalkeeper.

However, Tottenham drew first blood much against the run of play, with Christian Eriksen putting the hosts in the driver’s seat with a deflected shot past Asmir Begovic. The Lilywhites soon found the second, with Kyle Walker-Peters laying it off for Son Heung-Min, who found the net with a clinical finish.

The Cherries faded away from the game as Spurs stamped their authority with some free-flowing attacking football. Walker-Peters was once again in the thick of things and the youngster found Lucas Moura with an accurate cross from the right who slotted the ball past Begovic to make it 3-0. Bournemouth had a chance to pull one back through Charlie Daniels but his header was kept out by Hugo Lloris.

With the game already dead and buried, Tottenham pushed forward in numbers to turn a victory into a whitewash. Christian Eriksen proved his worth as a playmaker, finding Harry Kane’s run with an exquisite lobbed through ball for the talisman to net the fourth of the evening. Son Heung-Min added a fifth in the 70th minute to cap off another rampant display by the north Londoners.
