Alli double sends Mourinho's Tottenham up to fifth

Alli double sends Mourinho's Tottenham up to fifth”

When Son set up Sissoko to volley home his first English Premier League goal since 2017 in the 69th minute, the points looked in the bag but Harry Wilson's pin-point free-kick gave Bournemouth a lifeline.

Wilson struck again deep into stoppage time to set up a grandstand finish and Jan Vertonghen needed to make a last-ditch challenge to deny Callum Wilson an equaliser with the final attack of the game.

After being consistently impressed in his first three years at the Spurs, Alli appeared to remain stagnant last season and started the 2019-20 campaign disappointingly.

It was the second week running that Tottenham conceded two late goals after going 3-0 up - mirroring last week's 3-2 win at West Ham United - while in midweek they were 2-0 down against Olympiakos in the Champions League before winning 4-2. "We scored seven goals in four days".

The Portuguese coach made recovering Alli's form of old one of his top priorities when taking over from Mauricio Pochettino last week and it is already paying dividends as the England worldwide has now scored three times in three games under Mourinho.

Mourinho told Alli to "play like Dele" after an underwhelming spell under predecessor Mauricio Pochettino, and the midfielder has responded in style over the past week.

Mourinho added on the display of his side against Bournemouth: "I think it was in our best period when we scored the third goal, we were close to score the fourth and then when they scored the first one it was a different game. He needs to be playing where he is, right behind Harry Kane", he said.

Bournemouth defender Stacey should have done far more to prevent Alli scoring a second goal, having also dropped off to play Son onside in the build-up to the hosts' opener. "He plays great, he scores, he helps, he works - fantastic".

"The fans love the club", Mourinho was quoted as saying by the BBC. Win that and talk of a top-four finish will resume. "I knew the qualities of the players and that's the direction I went in".

Against the Cherries on Saturday the 23-year-old was again at the heart of much of Spurs' good work, and his first goal arrived on 21 minutes as Son Heung-min brilliantly directed a long ball into his path for him to tap in.
