AFC Bournemouth vs. Tottenham Hotspur - Football Match Report

Tottenham Pochettino Vertonghen

Tottenham Pochettino Vertonghen

They played nearly half of yesterday's defeat with nine men, and, just as they thought they had gouged a point out of a sapping, wild ordeal, they lost to a stoppage-time Bournemouth goal.

Spurs' final game of the season sees them host Everton and if they win that, they will finish in the top four.

Either side of those saves, Son should have scored after he waltzed through the defence but he fired over.

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.

Tottenham was forced to play the final 42 minutes of Saturday's match with nine men. 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.

Things went from bad to nightmare territory for Spurs two minutes after the break, when Foyth - who had just entered at the start of the second half - cut down home defender Jack Simpson with a high boot.

What does it mean?

Looking to cement a spot in the Champions League potentially with a win, Spurs lost 1-0 at Bournemouth and now could find themselves out of the top four.

Five minutes of madness might just cost Tottenham Hotspur a place in next year's UEFA Champions League.

Lucas Moura almost gave teenage goalkeeper Travers a Premier League debut to forget, but his shot from the halfway line flew just wide, while the Brazilian also headed over.

A show of indiscipline either side of half-time cost Spurs.

Lerma's initial challenge seemed innocuous but Son pushed the Cherries midfielder to the floor and was shown a straight red by Pawson. Foyth's subsequent inability to keep himself on the pitch longer than three minutes beggared belief.
