This season, Davies has been excellent at left wing back and has yet again showed how Mauricio Pochettino improves players, especially full backs.

It was a change that paid off nearly instantly as Christian Eriksen fired in the only goal of the game two minutes into the second half. It was hard to find the space.

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

"We tweaked the system to stop them getting the ball in to Harry Kane".

He said: "It is important to feel Wembley is our home".

Seven killed in Kenya's Turkana county
At least five students and a security guard have been shot and killed in a dawn attack at a secondary school in northern Kenya. The student was only identified as Abraham and, according to Mr Matata, is from the Toposa tribe of South Sudan.

"I remember more than three years ago, when we arrived I think it was hard to adapt our game to White Hart Lane, there was a little bit of a problem about the size of the pitch and then we started to feel that we can win and be almost invincible last season".

As Pochettino pointed out, despite Spurs dominating possession, Bournemouth were hard to break down - and Spurs found themselves having to survive a couple of first-half scares.

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.

Further forward, Son Heung-min may well have to make do with a place on the bench, especially as Alli is suspended for the trip to Madrid, with the South Korean surely set to take his place at the Bernabeu.

They looked to be in danger of dropping more points at home with the score locked at 0-0 at half-time but Eriksen's goal was enough to seal a valuable three points that keeps Spurs third in the table.
