Tottenham vs Bournemouth last five H2Hs: Spurs looking to rectify last season’s horror show

Tottenham vs Bournemouth last five H2Hs have been edged by the home side, although there was an unlikely win for the Cherries on the road last season which was a sign of how far Spurs had fallen during the 2022/23 campaign.

These two sides have only played each other 14 times throughout history with the very first encounter coming back in 1957 when Spurs lost to Bournemouth and Boscombe Athletic 3-1 in the FA Cup, but it wouldn't be until 2019 when the Cherries recorded their next victory over Tottenham.

Tottenham vs Bournemouth H2H record

Spurs have faced Bournemouth 13 times over the years, with just one of them coming outside of the Premier League and the Cherries have only scored 15 times across all of those matches, compared to Tottenham's impressive 33.

Tottenham wins: 9

Draws: 2

Bournemouth wins: 3

After their first-ever meeting which Bournemouth won, Spurs went seven games unbeaten against the Cherries, but since then it's not been so easy for Tottenham. The North London club have won three of the last six meetings, losing another two and drawing once.

Tottenham 3-2 Bournemouth – 30th November 2019

Back in 2019, Tottenham looked to be cruising to a comfortable 3-0 victory at home to Bournemouth. This was thanks to a brace from Dele Alli before Moussa Sissoko added a third just over 20 minutes from full-time. However, substitute Harry Wilson entered the pitch and netted a brace which set up a very nervy finish, but Spurs were able to hang on and pick up a huge three points on the road.

Bournemouth 0-0 Tottenham – 9th July 2020

Despite achieving such a big result in front of no fans, Bournemouth were able to breathe easier in the Premier League having halted a run of six defeats in a row. On the other hand, Spurs stuttered to another draw that left fans disappointed as they extended a poor run of away form to just three wins in their last 23 fixtures on the road.

Bournemouth 2-3 – 29th October 2022

In their first meeting back in the top flight following Bournemouth's relegation to the Championship in the previous campaign, the Cherries looked to be on course to cause a major upset. Kieffer Moore netted a famous brace before the 50th minute to send the Vitality Stadium rocking.

While Spurs looked down and out they rallied and showed mental toughness to flip the game on its head. Spurs netted three goals from the 57th minute onwards with Ryan Sessegnon kicking things off before late goals from Ben Davies and Rodrigo Bentancur rocked the Bournemouth fanbase.

Tottenham 2-3 Bournemouth – 15th April 2023

Last season was a very poor one for Spurs as they finished with no European football and this game was one of their lowest points. Despite former Bournemouth man, Arnaut Danjuma, scoring a late equaliser it was his former club who'd have the last laugh. Bournemouth silenced the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium when substitute Dango Ouattara scored a 95th-minute winner, which piled pressure on Cristian Stellini.

Bournemouth 0-2 Tottenham – 26th August 2023

This was a very comfortable victory for Ange Postecoglou who failed to win his opening away match at Brentford in the first game of his Spurs tenure, but a solid 2-0 victory was enough. Summer signing James Maddison got on the scoresheet for the first time, while Dejan Kulusevski put the game beyond doubt with a strike just past the hour mark.

Potential MVP – Dominic Solanke

Dominic Solanke has been one of the in-form strikers this campaign with 13 goals to his name already, a figure that surpasses his total for the whole of last season. The England international is now being linked with a move away from the Vitality Stadium, but not before he's faced Spurs.

Solanke has scored one and assisted twice in his four appearances against Tottenham, coupled with his electric form, the Englishman will be the one to watch for Spurs, who are coming off the back of a humbling 4-2 defeat against Brighton.

Key trend

These two sides have scored 66 goals in the Premier League between them this season, and three of the last five matches – three out of four in front of fans – have resulted in both teams scoring.

Therefore, this fixture looks set to be a goal-fest with Spurs only knowing one way of playing under Postecoglou, while the Cherries are flying and have the best striker in the league at the moment, in the form of Solanke.
