English Premier League

Bournemouth 2 – 3 Tottenham Hotspur

Tottenham showed their hunger and resolve to fight back from two goals down against Bournemouth, earning a much-needed victory going into what is an important week for Antonio Conte and his side.

Before a pivotal Champions League trip to Marseille on Tuesday, Spurs were flat as Bournemouth looked set to end a run of successive defeats.

Wales international Kieffer Moore, making a rare start, swept the Cherries ahead following a flowing counter attack.

His second was more about guts than guile as he outmuscled Emerson Royal to meet Adam Smith’s cross with a powerful header which went in off the bar.

Spurs rarely threatened before Ryan Sessegnon narrowed the gap with a cool finish into the bottom corner.

That sparked a shift of momentum and Spurs levelled when home keeper Mark Travers made an unconvincing attempt at claiming a corner, allowing Ben Davies to head in from Ivan Perisic’s delivery.

Spurs continued to press and were rewarded when Rodrigo Bentancur reacted quickest to sweep in from another set-piece.
