Commentary

Spurs haven't been entirely convincing under Mourinho yet but they're winning. We'll have to see how they fare when they make a midweek trip to Man Utd. That's all for now. Goodbye!
Spurs climb to fifth in the Premier League table thanks to their first back-to-back league wins of the season. Crisis? What crisis? Bournemouth are 12th with three losses in a row now. If they get a result soon it should keep them out of trouble.
Spurs win with the odd goal in five in an end-to-end game. Spurs took the lead through Alli in the first half and looked home and dry after the England man and Sissoko made it 3-0. Spurs switched off late on for a second league game running though, allowing Harry Wilson to score twice. Bournemouth almost punished them at the death. 
90' + 7' FULL TIME: TOTTENHAM 3-2 BOURNEMOUTH
90' + 7' Bournemouth almost equalise! Callum Wilson gets through on goal and only Vertonghen is there to stop him. Spurs nearly snatched a draw from the jaws of comfortable victory there.
H. Wilson
Goal
90' + 6' GOAL! 3-2 BOURNEMOUTH! Hello! What's this? Harry Wilson gets his second goal of the game, skidding a shot into the net from the penalty spot. VAR checks it and it stands. Spurs still haven't resolved their defensive issues.
H. Winks
D. Alli
90' + 4' Alli gets a standing ovation as he leaves the pitch. He's been magnificent. Winks replaces him for the final few minutes.
90' + 2' Gosling nods a header into the side netting from a Bournemouth corner. That might have made the last few minutes interesting.
90' + 1' There will be six minutes of added time to end the game, almost all of them due to Bournemouth's rough treatment of Gazzaniga. 
J. Lerma
Yellow Card
90' Tempers flare as Lerma leaves a cynical leg on Alli, causing Spurs' other players to wade in. Lerma is booked for causing the ruckus.
G. Lo Celso
Son Heung-Min
88' Son gets a deserved rest for the last few minutes. Lo Celso comes on for Spurs.
87' The Cherries leave their mark on Spurs' back-up goalkeeper again. Bournemouth win a corner off Sanchez. Gosling has a shot blocked. Gazzaniga rises high to claim the second cross, taking a minor whack in the process.
86' Spurs are consistently threatening on the counter-attack now. Alli tries to slip in a team-mate but can't get the pass right.
84' Maybe not! Solanke twists and turns in the box to get a shot away. The Englishman drags his left-footed shot across goal. Gosling is almost there to tap in but Gazzaniga bravely claims it. Spurs free-kick.
83' Rico shakes his head after his ball in from the left sails out of play. Bournemouth's mini-spell of pressure may die down now.
81' The corner falls to Alderweireld who puts it out for another Bournemouth corner. This time Spurs clear Lerma's ball in.
80' Bournemouth still believe they can score again. They get a corner as Harry Wilson tries again from range and it deflects out off Dier.
78' Seconds later, Spurs are at it again! This time Alli has a go from mid-range but it's straight down Ramsdale's throat. This team look so much more like their old selves again.
77' There are few more exciting sights in English football at the moment than this Spurs side breaking at speed. First, Son bursts down the left and has his cross blocked by Steve Cook at the last. It's a Spurs corner which Bournemouth defend well. 
76' Bournemouth have taken heart from that goal, their first ever away to Spurs in the Premier League. Groeneveld's cross from the left causes a few problems before Spurs manage to get rid.
D. Gosling
L. Cook
74' Bournemouth also make a change. Gosling comes on for Lewis Cook.
Lucas Moura
T. Ndombèlé
74' Spurs substitution. Ndombele makes way for Lucas.
H. Wilson
Goal
73' GOAL! 3-1 BOURNEMOUTH! Ndombele fouls Cook at the base of Spurs' midfield. Harry Wilson steps up to curl a left-footed free-kick past Gazzaniga which kisses the crossbar as it goes in. It surely can't be more than a consolation, but a good goal nonetheless.
72' That Sissoko goal is his first in the Premier League since he netted against Huddersfield in September 2017, 69 games ago. Miracles do happen.
71' This game's surely over as a contest now but Bournemouth could still grab a goal. Gazzaniga concedes a corner as he stops Cook's effort from range. Spurs deal with the corner comfortably as Harry Wilson's shot is blocked.
Son Heung-Min
Assist
69' That's two assists for Son now. Spurs are purring again under Mourinho.
M. Sissoko
Goal
69' GOAL! 3-0 SPURS! Spurs go from 0-10 in seconds as Kane slides Son down the left. Son hangs the ball up for Sissoko, who acrobatically volleys into the net from a tight angle! A lovely goal.
68' Spurs seem comfortable now we're entering the final quarter of the game. They're passing the ball around at the back without a care.
Diego Rico
Yellow Card
67' Rico gets the first yellow card of the game for checking Aurier's run. It's been quite a clean game overall.
66' Alli's full of confidence now. Aurier floats in a magnificent cross from the right that Alli tries to backheel into the net. He just misses. Ramsdale is furious at his defenders.
64' Harry Wilson gets involved with the game quickly. Bournemouth move the ball around outside Spurs' area before feeding Wilson down the right channel. Wilson pops inside onto his left foot and blooters over.
H. Wilson
R. Fraser
63' Here's that expected Bournemouth change - Harry Wilson comes on. It's Fraser who'll make way for him.
61' Aurier flashes a cross across goal but Cook is there again to hook it away. The defender's been decent today.
59' Spurs are well and truly in control of this game now. Bournemouth are preparing Harry Wilson to come on.
57' This is the first time that Alli's scored two goals in a Premier League game since April of last year. Mourinho's given him his mojo back.
56' Alli's very close to a hat-trick! Spurs pour men forward after another Bournemouth attack breaks down. Alli receives Sissoko's cut-back on the edge of the box but flashes his shot over the crossbar. 
54' Uh-oh. Gazzaniga stays down injured after he takes a bang in the face from Wilson as he claims a rogue pass. It's a Spurs free-kick. Will Spurs have to bring on their young goalkeeper Whiteman? Thankfully for them, no - he looks fine to continue.
52' Solanke gets fouled by Aurier on Bournemouth's left flank. Vertonghen heads the free-kick out for a Bournemouth corner. Wilson heads over from Fraser's cross on the second attempt.
T. Alderweireld
Assist
50' That's twice now that Bournemouth have come undone due to Alderweireld's direct deliveries. You'd have thought they'd have learnt their lesson the first time. They have their work cut out for them now. 
D. Alli
Goal
50' GOAL! 2-0 SPURS! Alli doubles his tally, and again it's another Alderweireld long ball! The midfielder chests the ball down in the box, skips past Stacey and Cook and slots it home. 
48' Sissoko whips a high cross from the right into Bournemouth's six yard box. Cook manages to put Kane off enough that the Spurs striker can't reach it.
47' Lerma wrestles Ndombele to the ground. Spurs free-kick.
45' Spurs get the second half going. No changes at half-time.
Bournemouth may be behind but their best chance of getting a goal back may be through a set-piece. Exactly half of Bournemouth's 16 Premier League goals this season have come from set-piece situations, the highest ratio in the league. Will Spurs take charge of this now, or can Bournemouth recover?
Spurs lead at the break through Alli's goal, then, but they haven't had it all their own way so far. Bournemouth look lively and haven't capitulated as easily as in their previous recent visits. This is still nicely poised for the second half.
45' + 1' HALF-TIME: TOTTENHAM 1-0 BOURNEMOUTH
45' There'll be one added minute. Alli tries to dance past Bournemouth's defence but they manage to successfully crowd him out. That'll be that for now.
44' Meanwhile, Groeneveld keeps Gazzaniga awake with a snap-shot from range. Bournemouth are still very much in this if they can limit their mistakes.
42' A word on Son - the South Korean's now been involved with 70 Premier League goals, 30 more than the next nearest Asian player, his compatriot Park Ji-sung. What a player he is for Spurs. 
41' Spurs have been in the ascendancy for the past few minutes but haven't managed to make it count yet. Fraser wins a free-kick down the left after he's brought down by Aurier. Spurs get the delivery away.
40' Bournemouth have Cook to thank as the centre-back slides in to block Alli's cross from the left of the box. There are cries for handball. It isn't.
38' Alli picks up the ball in midfield and feeds Kane, who holds it up in the box. Son nearly scores a wonderful effort after nodding down Kane's chipped pass but hits the side netting.
37' Kane does a stepover and fires over after Bournemouth sloppily lose the ball deep in midfield again. They need to cut that out, as that's when Spurs look most dangerous.
35' Spurs win a corner down their left and it's headed out for another on the opposite side. This time the visitors win a throw.
33' Bournemouth are getting their shot count up. Wilson blasts an effort wide. Spurs and Bournemouth have had seven shots each so far. It's been quite even, barring Spurs' goal.
32' Seconds after Lerma tries a similar shot, Stacey picks up the ball outside the box and skids a right-footed effort wide of the left-hand post. It briefly seemed like it might just creep in! Spurs are leading but they need to be careful.
30' Sissoko commits two fouls in quick succession on Lerma and Ake as Bournemouth get a reprieve for now. The visitors will be grateful that there's still only one goal in this.
28' NO GOAL! Sissoko's shot hit Sanchez's hand first then fell back into his path. Even though he was onside, it has to be ruled out. Fair enough.
27' GOAL! 2-0 SPURS! Bournemouth can't fully clear the corner. Son holds the ball up in the box and cuts back to Sissoko, whose shot is blocked. It deflects kindly to Sanchez, who fires past Ramsdale. Wait, it's being checked by VAR...
25' Kane drops into the left-hand channel and plays a nice one-two with Son to get sight of goal. Ramsdale makes the save with his feet at his near post. Spurs corner.
23' Spurs' confidence is growing now. Kane's shot from range is blocked. Fraser looks to counter-attack down the left and is cannily stopped by Sanchez. 
22' That's Alli's second goal in three home games for Spurs now, as many as he managed in his previous 20. The young midfielder's getting back to his best.
Son Heung-Min
Assist
21' Son was well within his rights to shoot himself there, but saw that Alli was better placed and made the right decision. Spurs haven't been entirely convincing yet, but they lead!
D. Alli
Goal
21' GOAL! 1-0 SPURS! Son latches onto Alderweireld's long ball over the top and selflessly squares it for Alli to tap in. That was far too easy.
20' Bournemouth over-commit upfield and almost get punished! Kane spots Son racing forward down the left and feeds him in. The South Korean gets into the box and flashes his low shot just wide of the far post. The visitors won't want to let that happen again.
18' Spurs keep the ball at the back for a bit. Two passes later, Sissoko crosses low from the right-hand channel but no one is there for the home side. Up the other end, Stacey's cross for Wilson doesn't find its target.
16' Both sides are defending well so far. Now it's Sanchez's turn to make a timely intervention, blocking Solanke's shot as he latches onto Cook's ball over the top. Not much comes of the corner.
14' Kane and Alli combine to send the former racing into the box. Cook slides in excellently to stop Spurs' captain shooting though, and Ndombele is well wide on the follow-up.
12' There are ironic cheers from the crowd as Aurier fails to keep a rogue pass in play for the second time so far. That base of Spurs' midfield isn't the silkiest.
10' Bournemouth look the better side at the moment. Rico finds himself in space outside the box and powers an effort towards goal. Gazzaniga again drops to his right to keep it out.
8' Groeneveld races down the right and pops a pass inside to Solanke. Solanke hangs the ball up for the arriving Wilson, who powers a header over the bar.
6' Spurs haven't fully settled yet with a few passes deep in midfield going awry. Bournemouth look well-organised in these opening minutes.
4' Bournemouth are looking bright! Groeneveld cuts in and fires a daisy cutter towards goal from range that Gazzaniga dives low to stop. Spurs can't fully clear the corner but Fraser's follow-up cross lands straight into the arms of the Argentine keeper.
3' Lerma dinks a pass wide to Stacey, who wins a throw off Son down the right. Bournemouth take it quickly but a stray Groeneveld pass leads the attack to break down.
2' Lerma sloppily hands over possession in midfield and Son races forward on the counter. Bournemouth's defence recovers quickly, though, and the South Korean opts to pass the ball back for Spurs to keep for now. Good start by the home side.
1' Bournemouth get this game underway! 
The two sides are out on Tottenham Hotspur Stadium's pitch! Kane and Cook do the honours as today's captains and we're seconds from kick-off...
Tottenham are on the hunt for their first back-to-back Premier League wins this season, and look likely to get them - no permanent Spurs manager has lost their first home game in charge since Martin Jol's side lost 3-2 to Charlton in 2004. However, Mourinho still has work to do on Spurs' defence. They've still kept only the one clean sheet this campaign, fewer than any other side. Can Bournemouth profit from Spurs' recent shakiness at the back?
Mourinho makes three changes from Tottenham's 4-2 home win over Olympiacos midweek in the Champions League. Vertonghen, Ndombele and Sissoko come in, while Rose, Winks and Lucas drop to the bench. Bournemouth revert to a back four with two players suspended after their 2-1 defeat to Wolves last week. There are four changes to their starting line-up as Stacey, Lerma, Groeneveld and Solanke start.
SUBS: Artur Boruc, Gavin Kilkenny, Chris Mepham, Dan Gosling, Jack Simpson, Christian Saydee, Harry Wilson.
BOURNEMOUTH (4-4-2): Aaron Ramsdale; Jack Stacey, Nathan Ake, Steve Cook (c), Diego Rico; Ryan Fraser, Jefferson Lerma, Lewis Cook, Arnaut Danjuma Groeneveld; Callum Wilson, Dominic Solanke.
SUBS: Christian Eriksen, Lucas Moura, Kyle Walker-Peters, Giovani Lo Celso, Harry Winks, Danny Rose, Alfie Whiteman.
TOTTENHAM (4-2-3-1): Paulo Gazzaniga; Serge Aurier, Davinson Sanchez, Toby Alderweireld, Jan Vertonghen; Eric Dier, Tanguy Ndombele; Moussa Sissoko, Dele Alli, Son Heung-Min; Harry Kane (c).
Spurs' opponents today are Bournemouth, who aren't in great form. The visitors have won just one of their last seven league games and have lost all four Premier League games they've played away to Spurs by an aggregate score of 13-0. Ouch.
Tottenham have won two games in two since Jose Mourinho's arrival as their new boss. Spurs will be looking for another win to lift them up the Premier League table as Mourinho takes charge of his first home league match for the club.
