Cape Town - Christian Eriksen ensured Tottenham Hotspur ended their Wembley hoodoo with a 1-0 win over Bournemouth on Saturday, after three Premier League games at their temporary home without a victory.

Tottenham were not at their best and rode their luck at times, but for manager Maurico Pochettino the victory will come as a welcome relief, while Bournemouth continue to struggle at the wrong end of the table.

Spurs face a daunting Champions League trip to holders Real Madrid on Tuesday and know they will need to up their game if they are to not return from Spain empty-handed. 

The build-up to Tottenham's first game back after the international break had been dominated by Pochettino's pre-match attack on Pep Guardiola. 

The Spurs boss accused his Manchester City counterpart of showing a lack of respect for claiming the north Londoners are a one-man team.

Guardiola cited Kane as that man. But with 13 goals for club and country in September, it was hard to disagree.
