Tottenham made it two wins from their first three Premier League games on Saturday, remaining unbeaten with a 2-0 away win over the Cherries. James Maddison opened his Spurs account before Dejan Kulisevski doubled Tottenham’s lead. Few were optimistic about Tottenham’s chances this season, particularly after Harry Kane’s departure, but Ange Postecoglou’s men have surprised for the better so far.
Spurs defeated Manchester United last week, and they put on a professional display away at Bournemouth to return to the capital with all three points.
Match of the Day preenter Gary Lineker wrote on Twtiter/X: “Big fan of Ange-ball thus far. Feels more like the style of football we expect from @SpursOfficial.” He also pointed out: “Spurs are top of the @premierleague.”
Lineker also issued a verdict on Spurs star Destiny Udogie, who impressed in the win over Bournemouth with his pace and power down the left side. Lineker wrote: “Udogie’s destiny looks very positive.”
Maddison also impressed, and speaking after the game, the goalscorer said: “Really happy with that. This can be a sticky, difficult place to come - I didn’t have the greatest record here with my previous club – but I thought we controlled it brilliantly. I’m really happy with the goal – it was such a great move and I made a nice run, which I’ve been working on because I want to get more goals. I’ve set myself a target for goals and assists but I’m not gonna tell you what it is!
“It’s been very easy to fit in, not just on the pitch. You develop relationships over the course of pre-season and on the training pitch. You pick up what traits your fellow midfielders have; Biss is great at receiving the ball in tight areas and he’s press resistant. When Pape got the ball I made the run because I know he’s got the quality to find me.
“The second goal came at a beautiful time. It gave us a bit of breathing space and I thought we were comfortable after that.”
