Wanyama's Tottenham hammer Bournemouth to go third on the EPL standings

Pochettino may rotate somewhat following Spurs' exertions in midweek, with Serge Aurier and Danny Rose likely to return at full-back.

Speaking to Sky Sports News after the match, Bournemouth boss Howe admitted that the margin of the 4-1 defeat is particularly hard to accept.

Mauricio Pochettino's team were one goal down at the time, but Dele Alli equalised soon after before a brace from Heung-min Son put the Lilywhites in control.

Tottenham must bounce back from European heartache if they are to continue to stake their claim for a second-place finish in the Premier League.

That undefeated record over the same period has only been bettered by Spurs, who are unbeaten in their last 11. I was very pleased with the players and I thought we played with a little bit of naivety in the end chasing the match.

"Barcelona did it, and so many others, in the way we want to play".

The signing , which is a one-year, $2.25 million deal, cannot become official until the new league year begins on Wednesday. He played just five games last season, the first time he's ever missed fewer than 12 games in his 12-year career.


Meanwhile, Spurs are undefeated in the Premier League since the middle of December and head into today's fixture having won four of their five league meetings with Howe's men.

That result means that Howe's men have been unable to pick up a win from their last three games in the league, leaving the Cherries slightly looking over their collective shoulder at those scrapping to avoid relegation.

"Hopefully we will get another chance to show that to the world".

"They are obviously a great team but not in the style that we want to play".

Jordon Ibe is a major doubt to face Spurs due to a hamstring injury that has seen him miss Bournemouth's last two Premier League games, against Newcastle United and Leicester City.

Despite the disappointment of a Champions League exit earlier this week, Tottenham still have much to play for going into the final stretch.
