Tottenham fightback for vital win at Bournemouth

Tottenham manager Antonio Conte says fighting back to beat Bournemouth was “vital” for his side before the crucial Champions League trip to Marseille. The visitors showed hunger and resolve to recover from two goals down, clinching victory when second-half substitute Rodrigo Bentancur pounced quickest in the second minute of stoppage time.

Wales international Kieffer Moore swept Bournemouth ahead following a flowing counter attack. His second was more about guts than guile as he outmuscled Emerson Royal to meet Adam Smith’s cross with a powerful header which went in off the bar.

Spurs rarely threatened before Ryan Sessegnon narrowed the gap with a cool finish into the bottom corner.

That sparked a shift of momentum and Spurs levelled when home keeper Mark Travers made an unconvincing attempt at claiming a corner, allowing Ben Davies to head in from Ivan Perisic’s delivery.

Spurs continued to press and were rewarded when Bentancur reacted quickest to sweep in from another set-piece.
