Tottenham see off Bournemouth
Jose Mourinho took charge of his third game as Tottenham boss on Saturday.
Spurs would play host to Bournemouth, as they looked to secure their 3rd successive win in all competitions.
The north London outfit hit the ground running on Saturday, with Dele Alli firing them in front with 21 minutes on the clock.
Alli would double his and Tottenham’s tally for the day 50 minutes in.
Moussa Sissoko then made it 3-0 to Spurs with 69 minutes played.
The Cherries did look as though they could earn something from the tie, with Harry Wilson bagging himself a brace late on, but it proved too little, too late.
Highlights: Tottenham 3-Bournemouth 2
Alli impresses for Spurs
Spurs have now won three out of three under Mourinho’s guidance.
But the one man that seems to be benefiting the most from the arrival of the former Chelsea and Manchester United boss is Dele Alli.
The Englishman put in a stellar display in Mourinho’s debut game vs West Ham, providing an assist.
Alli then scored one vs Olympiacos and, as mentioned above, bagged himself two on Saturday.
And Squawka has since showcased all the key stats behind Alli’s standout display vs Bournemouth.
When facing Eddie Howe’s side, Alli would record the most take-ons (8), the most recoveries (8), the most shots (5), the most shots on target (3), and the most goals (2).
Alli’s eight take-ons vs Bournemouth were also the most by a Spurs player in a Premier League game in over three years.
Dele Alli completed eight take-ons against Bournemouth, the most by a Spurs player in a Premier League game in over three years (Son Heung-Min vs. Boro in Sep 2016, 9).
