Unlikely Tottenham player in European Team of the Week after Bournemouth victory

Spurs XI

Junior Stanislas opened the scoring for Eddie Howe's men 17 minutes into the encounter at the Vitality Stadium before the Cote d'Ivoire global provided an assist for Dele Alli's equaliser in 35th minute.

"It was a really high-speed game, a lot of energy from both teams", he told Sky Sports.

Chiellini didn't hold back in his post-match interview with BT Sport, stating Juve always knew they would get chances to score and how it was in Tottenham's history to "miss something to arrive at the end".

"But we showed against Bournemouth with guys like "Sonny", Erik Lamela, Christian (Eriksen) - who I think had an unbelievable game - and so many others I've forgotten to mention, they stepped up and that's what we need to do as a team".

"We started the second half really well, we tried to be on the front foot as best as we could".

After scoring 22 goals in all competitions last season, Dele Alli has scored a measly five during this campaign. We caused them problems in behind with the physicality of our two strikers. We were disappointed with how we conceded the first goal.

Tottenham midfielder Eric Dier is a doubt for Sunday's Premier League game at Bournemouth.

Mauricio Pochettino's men were a goal down at the time, after Stanislas gave the hosts the lead in the 7th minute.

As stated previously, Spurs are not wholly reliant on Kane to power them to glory, and that was proved no more so than on Sunday afternoon; as with the Englishman off the pitch, Son was on hand to produce a scintillating display.

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. I'm proud of our players' effort today.
