Nine-man Tottenham squanders chance to clinch top-four Premier League finish

Posted May 05, 2019

Mauricio Pochettino's team held the Cherries off for all of it, only to see Bournemouth's Nathan Ake score a stoppage-time victor.

Bournemouth struggled to make their numerical advantage count until Nathan Ake climbed highest to meet a corner and head a dramatic victor in the 90th minute.

Son Heung-min was sent off just before the break, having returned from the suspension that kept him out of the midweek European semi-final first-leg defeat to Ajax, and Juan Foyth - introduced as a half-time replacement - was also trudging down the tunnel just two minutes and 13 seconds after the restart.

For all the talk coming into the game on how Nurse wanted Gasol to be the third option, he still finished with only six attempts. Shooting 25 per cent on wide-open shots from beyond the arc for three quarters is how you end up scoring 89 points in a game.

The Cherries are still on course for their record Premier League points tally after beating nine-man Tottenham on Saturday, but Howe said after full-time he felt the pressure to make sure next season went one step further.

Lerma certainly did not do himself any favours with his theatrics, but he has handed his side a huge advantage in ensuring that his side could play the full duration of the second half without the threat of the visitors' most unsafe attacker.

The game started evenly but nearly saw Spurs go ahead in stunning fashion.

It looked like rookie Bournemouth goalkeeper Mark Travers, who was in the Republic of Ireland squads for the Euro qualifiers against Gibraltar and Georgia, was going to be the story of the game as he produced several fine saves on his Premier League debut as Spurs should have had the game wrapped up before their indiscipline.

Bournemouth had plenty of the ball but they struggled to make their two-man advantage count as they rarely troubled Hugo Lloris. The match starts at 19:30 on 4 May 2019. "Huge potential, we think this is an ideal game for him to show what he is capable of".

Referee Craig Pawson had earlier turned down a pair of Bournemouth penalty appeals and generously opted against showing Eric Dier a second yellow card, but Son was dismissed as he shoved Jefferson Lerma to the floor.

Mind you, he didn't have the best receivers to work with, who dropped 38 passes this year alone. Asked if the plan for Manning was one more season, Gettleman said, "Absolutely not".

And Spurs were made to pay for not scoring the opener as they were reduced to 10 men just before the half time whistle.
