In the first two rounds, coach Ange Postecoglou’s team drew 2-2 at Brentford Stadium and then won against Man Utd.

The previous two times took place in the 2009-2010 season (won Liverpool 2-1, Hull City 5-1, West Ham 2-1) and the 2018-2019 season (won Newcastle 2-1, Fulham 3-1, Man Utd 3-

Tottenham defensive midfielder Yann Bissouma blocked Ryan Christie’s dribble for Bournemouth in the match on August 26.

After the chaotic 2022-2023 season with three coach changes, 8th place overall and the departure of icon Harry Kane last summer, the current start, although not too impressive, still creates confidence for the players.

Tottenham’s play at Vitality Stadium also brings rays of hope.

Without Kane, Tottenham still attacks powerfully with rookie James Maddison integrating well into Postecoglou’s system.

This play was executed smoothly, giving Tottenham the opening goal in the 17th minute. Bissouma received the ball in the home half and coordinated with Pape Matar Sarr to let the Senegalese midfielder poke the ball into the penalty area.

This is Maddison’s first goal for Tottenham after being bought from Leicester City for $51 million in the summer.

Bournemouth rallied at the end of the first half and the beginning of the second half, creating a number of good opportunities, but Christie, Billing, and Semenyo were all squandered.

Left back Udogie rose high, moved into the middle, bounced off the wall with Son, then went down to the bottom of the line, passing back into the penalty area.
