Bournemouth vs Tottenham: Rodrigo Bentancur scored a stoppage time goal to complete Tottenham’s comeback against Bournemouth in the Premier League as they fell from two goals down to win 3-2.
Bournemouth Keiffer Moored scored a 22 minute header. The striker was also on target with another goal in the 49th minute of the second half of the match.
When Antonio Conte was in the mood to make a substitution, Ryan Sessegnon scored a beautiful goal in the 57th minute.
In the 73rd minute, another corner came for Tottenham and Ben Davies’s header leveled the match with 17 minutes left to play.
Heung Min Son, Harry Kane and Louca Moura were close to scoring, but the Bournemouth goalkeeper, Tavaries, made some intelligent saves in the match.
In the 92nd minute, the 19th corner was whipped into the Bournemoth 18 yard box. Bentancur made an initial attempt on goal, which was pushed away by the goalkeeper, and the second attempt went past the opponent’s goalkeeper.
Tottenham had the majority of the possession with 69% to 31% for Bournemouth. The North London side also received two yellow cards.
The Tottenham win has made them stay in third position with 26 points and are three points from the top of the Premier League table, while Bournemouth suffered their third defeat in a row.
Bournemouth are currently in 14th position, while Tottenham have recorded their first win in four matches.
This is a resounding reply from Tottenham, who played a 1-1 draw against Sporting Lisbon in the Champions League on October 26.
However, Conte’s style of play has been criticized countless times. He constantly makes use of the 3-5-2 formation, which makes it difficult for the players to explore.
The team has been tipped not to finish in the top six of the Premier League because they lack the ability to create chances and are all living in their former shadows. Kane and Son are lacking belief, and the manager needs to work on them.
What Next For Tottenham And Bournemouth
Tottenham have found themselves in a must-win situation when they face Olympic Marseille in the Champions League for the last group stage match on November 1, 2022.
The North London team will travel to France and a defeat will push them into the Europa League, where the fans would not want them to be.
Tottenham is currently on top of Group D of the Champions League with eight points. Conte will have to bring in his best play, make the formation very flexible and make sure his players do not commit any mistakes in the course of play.
Bournemouth, on the other hand, will travel to face Leeds United on November 5, 2022, at 4:00 pm. Leeds United will surely be looking for a win because they are currently in 17th position, a spot away from relegation.
