(Reuters) – TOTTENHAM HOTSPUR 1 BOURNEMOUTH 0 Tottenham Hotspur claimed a long-overdue first Premier League victory at their temporary Wembley Stadium home as Christian Eriksen’s goal sealed an unconvincing 1-0 win over Bournemouth on Saturday. Tottenham were in danger of becoming the only club in English Football League history to win their first four away league games without tasting victory in any of their opening four at home. They were flat in a drab first half in which struggling Bournemouth had the better chances but Eriksen finally broke the deadlock two minutes after the break with a calm finish. Tottenham’s Harry Kane wasted a good chance and had a goal disallowed but the hosts never looked at ease and keeper Hugo Lloris had to make a fine save to keep out former Spurs striker Jermain Defoe. Victory kept Tottenham in third place with 17 points from eight games while Bournemouth remained second from bottom.
