Bournemouth and Tottenham fail to produce a goal in high-tempo clash

Unfortunately, that's all we've got time for today! I've been Oliver Emmerson, taking you through Bournemouth's 0-0 draw with Tottenham. I'll be back later for Liverpool - West Brom, but for now - onto the 3PM games!

It's all over, no goals today between the two teams. An impressive performane from Bournemouth, who were on top for much of the game, and Eddie Howe will be wondering how his side didn't claim a shock win. Tottenham remain unbeaten, but that's about all you can say as they relied on their defence to take anything away from this one. 

Full-time: AFC Bournemouth 0-0 Tottenham Hotspur

90: Bournemouth pushing late on here, Francis with a cross that's nodded just over by Afobe. Three minutes of added time. 

89: Gradel pinches the ball on the halfway line and breaks away, but some terrific defending from Dembele pushes the ball out for a corner as Jack Wilshere was emerging free in the box. 

87: Josh King limps off for Bournemouth, replaced by young Ryan Fraser. 

83: Two huge penalty appeals as Bournemouth attack the Spurs area, firstly Wanyama on Wilshere and then Vertonghen on Gradel. The former looked riskier, but in truth neither looked like a penalty. 

81: Callum Wilson replaced by Benik Afobe. 

79: Tempers boiling over here. Sissoko perhaps looking to advocate some revenge on Arter for his challenge on Wanyama, throws an elbow as the midfielder looks to pick up the ball. Arter's extremely angry with it, but Pawson gives nothing. One that might be looked at after the game? 

76: Half a chance for Rose as the ball comes to him on the left hand side of the area, however his right-footed effort is a weak one, easily saved. 

72: Dele Alli off for Moussa Sissoko. 

71: Victor Wanyama's down and in some pain after a strong follow through from Harry Arter. He looks like he'll carry on, shaking his head about Arter's tackle, which looked fair. 

69: Bournemouth look to break after it takes three defenders to stop Dele Alli, but Max Gradel's eventual pass through to Charlie Daniels is overhit and travels out for a goal kick.

62: Anything you can do, I can do better... Pochettino making a change now, Janssen on for Son. Can the Dutchman get his first Premier League goal?

60: First substitution of the game, Max Gradel coming on for Jordon Ibe. Will his pace cause further problems for Spurs?

52: Wanyama through to Lamela, who does get to shoot this time, sending it over from a tight angle. 

51: Fantastic first touch from Eriksen, flicking the ball to send Lamela clear, but the Argentine doesn't have enough pace to burst away from the Bournemouth defence and is dispossesed before he can shoot. 

49: Oooh, good cross from King towards Wilson, Dier forced to head it out for a corner. 

47: Dele Alli with a long range, central effort, pushed firmly away by Boruc. 

45: Back underway, will we see a better performance from Tottenham in the second half?

Although we go into half-time level, you'd have to say that it's definitely been Bournemouth's day so far. On top from the start, Daniels hit the bar early on and there were further chances later in the half. Erik Lamela did strike the woodwork in one of few efforts for Spurs, who are in danger of going down to 10 men in the second half as they've already had four booked. 

Half-time: AFC Bournemouth 0-0 Tottenham Hotspur

45+2: Ibe gives Walker the run-around with a change of pace, playing a low ball across for Wilson, who stabs his shot wide of the post. 

45: Bournemouth attacking as we enter two minute of stoppage time, Wilshere crosses for Wilson after a good Arter challenge, but the striker's too far away from goal for his header to really trouble Lloris.

43: Danny Rose in from behind on Jordon Ibe, and that's yellow card number four for Spurs.

40: Ooooh, Erik Lamela with a late challenge and there's huge shouts of 'off off' around the ground, but Craig Pawson doesn't give him a yellow. 

39: Muffled penalty shouts as Ibe nutmegs Dembele and is blocked, but not enough in it for the whistle to be blown. Dan Gosling booked for a late one on Walker. 

37: Dele Alli the next Spurs player into the book, bundling Adam Smith over. 

35: Vertonghen booked, hauling down Wilson as the striker tried to turn him near the halfway line.

34: Lamela into the area, but bodies are around him quickly and his shot is blocked.

28: Better from Spurs! Christian Eriksen finds half a yard of space from 20 yards out, and Boruc is forced to push a low shot around his post. 

24: A few nervous touches here and there from the Tottenham players, who are being pressed furiously by Bournemouth. The unbeaten side are yet to really get a grip on the game. 

18: Perhaps frustrated at only hitting the post, Lamela dives in late on Smith and gets the first yellow card of the afternoon. 

17: Off the post! Dele Alli with two nutmeg's in midfield, slippng it to Lamela who cracks a long range effort off the outside of the post. 

16: Callum Wilson in-behind the defence for a moment, before Vertonghen recovers to block his effort out for a corner. Bournemouth have had five already. Hugo Lloris claims the most recent one comfortably. 

14: It's been a good start from the home side, who are playing most of their football in the Tottenham half. Spurs under a little pressure here. 

8: Tottenham play a short corner of their own, but it doesn't cause nearly as much trouble as Bournemouth's. You can't help but notice how short the distance from the advertising hoardings to the corner flags are at this ground. Something to do with the lack of high corners?

5: Off the bar! Bournemouth play a corner short and work it well across the goal, Charlie Daniels alive in the area, stabbing his effort with Lloris pushing it up and off the woodwork. Close to an opener for Eddie Howe's men!

2: Jack Wilshere, against the rivals of his parent club Arsenal, looks to drive at the defence early on, but can't quite slip the ball into Wilson. At the other end, Son has a shot saved, but he was offside anyway. 

0: Kick-off!

A late change for Bournemouth, Andrew Surman taken ill in the warm up so Dan Gosling is into the starting 11. The two teams are out onto the pitch, almost time to get underway!

Harry Arter is fit enough to make the Bournemouth side, and he lines up in centre-midfield. Despite praising him in the week, Pochettino hasn't started Vincent Janssen, instead opting to play Son as the striker. Danny Rose is fit enough to play. 

Tottenham XI: Lloris; Walker, Dier, Vertonghen, Rose; Wanyama, Dembele; Lamela, Eriksen, Alli; Son.

Bournemouth XI: Boruc; Smith, Francis, Cook, Daniels; Ibe, Arter, Surman, Wilshere; King; Wilson.

We've got the confirmed team news in!

Regarding Bournemouth's team news, Harry Arter has a 50/50 chance of making the squad, whilst Max Gradel could be back in contention. Brad Smith and Lewis Cook will both definitely miss out through injury. 

Tottenham will be without key striker Kane today though, as he continues to come back from an ankle injury, and they're also likely to miss Toby Alderweireld, as the Belgian was stretchered off last week with a knee injury. Eric Dier is likely to partner Jan Vertonghen at the back in the right-footed Belgian's absence. Danny Rose could miss out after sustaining some bruising to his foot against Leverkusen. 

Spurs were convincing victors the last time these two teams met, winning 3-0 at White Hart Lane back in March. Harry Kane scored two early goals, with Christian Eriksen adding to the scoresheet in the second half. It was even easier for Spurs in the away fixture, Kane bagging three in a 5-1 win.

Tottenham remain unbeaten in the league so far this season, and are sitting third in the table, just a point off top spot. Their most impressive result, arguably, of the season so far came just a couple of weeks ago, as Mauricio Pochettino's side became the first team to beat Manchester City under Pep Guardiola's management. However, they slipped up a little last time out, only managing a 1-1 draw away at West Brom, thanks to Dele Alli's last minute equaliser. Spurs drew in the Champions League in midweek, 0-0 away to Bayer Leverkusen

Bournemouth are in a rich vein of form, having only lost one of their last six Premier League games, winning three in that run. They beat Everton at home, before picking up an impressive point away at Watford. However, their most complete performance of the season came last week in a 6-1 demolition of Hull City at the Vitality Stadium. Bournemouth currently sit in 11th, but could move into seventh with all three points today!

It's sure to be an exciting weekend of Premier League action. We start with this game, before moving onto the 3PM kick-off's, and then Liverpool vs West Brom this evening! Tomorrow sees Manchester City take on Southampton before Chelsea and Manchester United face off. For now though, let's focus on the matter at present.
