Christian Eriksen earns Tottenham Hotspur first home win of Premier League season

Tottenham's Harry Kane has become England's leading star ahead of next year's World Cup

England striker Kane had hit 11 goals in his last six club appearances, but it was Christian Eriksen who chipped in with the only goal on Saturday as Tottenham won a league game at Wembley for the first time.

Christian Eriksen's strike early in the second half was enough for a Spurs side who have struggled to translate their stunning form at White Hart Lane last season to their temporary new home.

This result ensures third-placed Tottenham stay within five points of table-topping City, while Bournemouth remain in the bottom three after one win from eight matches.

Goalkeeper Lloris denied plucky Bournemouth with crucial saves in each half, while Eriksen, outstanding throughout, struck moments after the interval to give his side a Wembley lift-off with their first victory in four attempts.

"In the second half we found better positions and moved the ball quickly, it was much better".

Some of the starting XI picks itself, with Hugo Lloris, Toby Alderweireld, Jan Vertonghen, Ben Davies, Davinson Sanchez, Eric Dier, Christian Eriksen, Dele Alli and Harry Kane all nearly sure to start against the Cherries.

Eriksen's stinging drive also forced Begovic into acrobatic action but Bournemouth were always in the hunt and Defoe, given a rousing reception when he came on, went close to equalising when his low shot was kept out by Lloris.

Lloris is one of the best goalkeepers in the Premier League and in the world, and the performance of the France worldwide goalkeeper was very good.

Mauricio Pochettino admits it is important not to be over-reliant on Harry Kane for goals following Tottenham's 1-0 Premier League victory against Bournemouth. "They only got in once and they scored".
