Well, it’s certainly turned into a couple of interesting weeks for Tottenham Hotspur and today’s clash against Bournemouth at White Hart Lane was no different.

With Pochettino slipping into the rearview for some fans, Jose Mourinho has certainly had an impact on our current form and many would argue in helping to revitalise Dele Alli in particular who helped himself to a brace in today’s Premier League clash.

With a rare and mildly shocking goal coming from Moussa Sissoko as well, we looked pretty comfortable at 3-0 but defensive issues came to the fore again and the visitors made it a nervy ending as they hit back twice.

They couldn’t find the leveller though, so it was three wins on the trot for our new gaffer and our first back to back top flight victories of the year. The win moves us up into fifth place and plenty of fans will be breathing easier tonight.

Speaking to the BBC following the game, Mourinho rightly praised Alli again, as he now has three in three.

“He plays in a position where he feels happy and comfortable. We also give him space for his creativity which he always has. I think he played three phenomenal matches since I arrived. For me Dele is not a midfield player, he is a player to play like he is playing, close to Harry. I think this is the best position for him. He’s the best thing that can happen to a coach because everybody speaks about him, you, the fans speak about him for the right reasons. He’s playing really, really, really well and I could not ask any more from him.”

  • Following on ES post it’s now Monday and we’re still 5th. Now comes one of our bogie teams on Wednesday. If we don’t pepper the goal with shots which DeGea will save with everything including his teeth, chin and hair. Remember last year. Then we’ll go 1-0 down to a dodgy penalty or og. If we get this millstone off our backs then top 4 is well within grasp. Even signed up to Amazon to watch it. But there is something about Man U….

  • Am now on “Avast browser” got one post on page 2 and Niall D on page 3, loads missing, what is going on.

    If this prints am up for a nice win on Wednesday at OT. COYS

  • So we have a page 3, still looks to be working in Chrome for me – I’m getting 22 posts on page 2 – but no dice yet on other browsers. Last post was Frank for my own memory here. I know it’s being looked at folks, I’ll give an update when I can.

  • Good result overall but still plagued by the same illnesses.

    Sissoko scored a good goal but his headed back pass in the last minute was diabolical. He also got beaten by his man for Bournemouth’s 2nd.

    We just seem to switch off at times defensively, which is worrying. But a win is a win, at there is no arguing with results at the moment.

  • Looks like this is playing up again. Can’t get everyone’s posts again on this thread. Sometimes I get page 1 and two or 3 pages but can’t open page 2. This is a test I have written something similar earlier.
    Aaaarrrggghhh.
