The victory was a small comfort following the north Londoners' Champions League exit on Wednesday, but for Bournemouth, the possibility of relegation still seems very real, and Eddie Howe's outfit's showdown with West Bromwich Albion next week is now crucial.

Toby Alderweireld remains out for Spurs due to a hamstring injury.

Son Heung-Min made it 2-1 for Spurs in the 62nd minute, before ramming a finish high into the net three minutes to stoppage time to bag a brace.

Mousa Dembele battled back to fitness to play against the Italian giants but could be replaced by Victor Wanyama in midfield, while Lucas Moura is long overdue a start in the Premier League - he could replace Dele Alli.

A win over Bournemouth would move the Lilywhites into third place in the Premier League after Liverpool's defeat at Manchester United on Saturday, whilst they visit Swansea City for an FA Cup quarter-final next weekend.

Marc Pugh has a calf strain, while Tyrone Mings is on the long-term injury list due to a back problem.

"Spurs still have much to play for this season and I expect them to maintain their challenge for a top four spot at the Vitality Stadium against a Bournemouth side who have only kept one clean sheet in their last 16 league games".

Howe has now led the Cherries into a run which has seen the club lose just one of their last 10 league matches, having won four and drawn five.

Tottenham are unbeaten in their six Premier League games and have won their last three top-flight games to hoist themselves above Chelsea FC. The way we want to play is that we want to show what we are here for, and we believe it is the right way.
