The Welsh international broke the deadlock in the 22nd minute with a curling shot low past the outstretched arms of Hugo Lloris.

And he then thwarted ruling Emerson Royal in a header just after the break to send Bournemouth fans into delirium.

Antonio Conte got the response he wanted as Ryan Sessegnon pulled a goal back in the 57th minute.

Ben Davies then popped up with an equalizer after finding himself at the end of Ivan Perisic’s corner in the 73rd minute.

And after intense pressure, the visitors finally got their reward in stoppage time with Spurs scoring from another corner.

The ball dropped to replace Bentancur inside the box, who sent the ball back into the roof of the net.


Spurs’ victory ends a run of two Premier League defeats against Manchester United and Newcastle.
