Tottenham squashed the Cherries

Yesterday saw a great result for Tottenham, but a frustration as Leicester continue to notch the points up as the season comes to an end.

Bournemouth came to White Hart Lane as they have with each game, looking to surprise and shock, but even looking at the Tottenham lineup you would have never thought Bournemouth would pull off a shock.

As the fans were settling down (and some still arriving) it was a complete shock to see Kyle Walker bomb down the right hand side and whip in an early ball for Kane to cooly slot past Boruc with just 44 seconds on the clock.

So knowing that Walker and Rose average position was pretty much on the half way line would be expected. The 2 worked exceptionally hard getting forward and in all honesty did not have much to do getting back. The pair were a great outlet, but Walker certainly stands out as the better wing back in the side.

Our second goal was a great peice of play from Wimmer (more about him to follow in another article in the week). A great ball forward, disecting the oppositions midfield and allowed Alli to turn and slide a ball into Kane. The lightest of touches were needed and Kane clipped the ball past the advancing Boruc and tucked the ball neatly into the corner.

Toby then put a delightful ball over the top which Eriksen failed to connect with.

The first half was full of intensity and saw a dominate Spurs keep the game fully in their control. Bournemouth struggled to get into any sort of flow at all.

Rose was unfortunate to score from inside the box and Alli had a goal disallowed for offside, athough Bournemouth managed to create a chance from a Gradel freekick, only for Cook to head over.

2 substitues at the beginning of he first half saw Bournemouth mix the game up, but 7 minutes in and Spurs scored their third and final goal of the day. Eriksen slotting in a rebound from Kane's attempt. I kind of felt sorry for Boruc as Kane's shot was far too difficult to hold and no one was arround to assist as Chrisy calmed slotted in the rebound with a gapping goal in front of him.

Wimmer, Toby and Dier were on hand throughout to clear up any potential opportunities and Dembele was there to throw himself about and build up each opportunity as Spurs collect from each failed Bournemouth attack.

There were little efforts to talk about for Bournemouth, but the clock ticked on as the game looked to loose it's intensity.

At the later stages of the game Eriksen looked to have opened the Cherries back up spinning past 2 defenders, opened up the defence and past onto Dele, only for him to shoot wide. 

Kane finished Man of the Match, top goal scorer in the league and has surpassed his tally for last year (making him one of few Englishmen to score over 20 goals for 2 consecutive Premier League seasons).

Although selfishly as a Spurs fan I hope they have a great rest, the likihood is that many of the Spurs team will be heading to the Euro's this summer!
