Photo by Julian Finney/ Tottenham Hotspur are absolutely flying against Bournemouth today. After Dele Alli scored the first two goals, Moussa Sissoko found the back of the net for the first time in over two years with a sensational goal. A perfect counter-attack led to the Dele Ali-Son Heung-Min combination working magic once again: Wow, Tottenham.

Mourinho leaves Son hanging over handshake in hilarious video from Spurs’ win over Olympiakos after ballboy high-five

JOSE MOURINHO was spotted blanking Son Heung-Min as the Korean desperately hounded his boss for a high-five.

Mourinho hails Tottenham players in win after “very difficult week”

Photo by Craig Mercer/MB Media/ The scoreline flattered West Ham a bit, but Spurs looked dominant for much of the match in a 3-2 win. The scoreline may not have shown it, but Tottenham Hotspur put in a pretty dominant performance in their 3-2 win over West Ham today at the London Stadium. Spurs got goals from Son Heung-Min, Lucas Moura, and Harry Kane before conceding two late West Ham goals in the waning minutes of the match. After his first match in charge, Tottenham head coach Jose Mourinho (and yes, it still feels weird typing that) praised the effort and performance of his players...

West Ham flop Roberto branded ‘worst goalkeeper in Premier League history’ after ANOTHER howler against Spurs

WATCH: Dele Alli created a goal from his butt

He’s back! This sport is all about making grandiose claims with very little evidence. 45 minutes into the Jose Mourinho era and I’m ready to proclaim that DELE ALLI IS BACK, BAYBAY! The England assisted on Son Heung-Min’s first goal and while he won’t officially get an assist on Lucas Moura’s second, he made the goal happen from his dang butt. That’s right, he’s not only looking bright for the first time in a while, he’s creating goals while on his booty.

Photo by Stephen Pond/ Another first for Sonny. The answer to yet another trivia question is Son Heung-Min. The Tottenham star scored the first-ever goal at the club’s new stadium and now he’s become the first player to find the back of the net under new manager Jose Mourinho. Spurs have been much better than a struggling West Ham in the debut match of the artist formerly known as The Special One.

The FA panel that rescinded Son Heung-Min’s red card wasn’t unanimous

Photo by Robbie Jay Barratt - AMA/ And apparently that’s unusual! Son Heung-Min’s red card and suspension for his tackle that led to the injury of Everton midfielder Andre Gomes was rescinded by the FA’s Independent Regulatory Commission, on appeal. That’s the good news. Now, we’re getting more information about the appeal decision itself, thanks to Sky Sports, and it won’t do much to make the decision any less controversial, at least to Everton fans. Sonny was sent off after the Tottenham Hotspur forward attempted a tackle on Gomes from behind, a tactical foul that...
