Tottenham Hotspur disappointingly bowed out of the Champions League to Juventus last week, but they managed to bounce back in the Premier League on Sunday afternoon.
Indeed, a 4-1 success at Bournemouth ensured that Tottenham would move into third position in the Premier League table – four points off second-placed Manchester United.
It is shaping up to be a very interesting battle for the top four this season, with Tottenham, Liverpool and Chelsea seemingly vying for the two spots behind Manchester City and United.
Tottenham’s win against Bournemouth was extremely important, and it was yet another brilliant afternoon for Mousa Dembele, who has been in terrific form for the capital club this term.
The 30-year-old, who is believed to collect £80,000 a week at Tottenham, needs to add goals to his game to be known as one of the best midfielders in the world, but there is no question that his performance levels this season have reached a new high.
The Tottenham fans were once again delighted with Dembele at the weekend, and a number have taken to social media to hail the Belgium international.
A selection of the Twitter reaction can be seen below:

Great to see you playing so many consecutive games and especially in that second half you was a beast in that midfield alongside Victor, wrap yourself in cotton-wall until next Saturday. 👏🏻

Quality again, Mousa. Now onto Swansea and hopefully the semis thereafter. You’re the boss. COYS.
