Bournemouth 1 Tottenham 0: Nine-man Spurs lose to late Ake header




Mauricio Pochettino’s Tottenham slipped to a third consecutive 1-0 defeat in all competitions after a pair of red cards at Bournemouth.

Tottenham still have work to do in the race to finish in the Premier League’s top four after their nine men lost 1-0 late on at Bournemouth on Saturday.

Third-placed Spurs would have secured champions league qualification for next season with victory, but they were brilliantly denied on numerous occasions by 19-year-old debutant Mark Travers in the Cherries goal before spectacularly losing their cool.

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.
