Tottenham had a chance to jump to at least the head of the class with a win over Bournemouth. Instead Spurs eked a nil-nil draw to pull them to 19 points.
This Tottenham’s second straight tie. Match summary from EPL website: “Spurs hit the woodwork also in the first half when Erik Lamela‘s shot grazed the woodwork after neat play from Dele Alli in the 17th minute.

Middlesbrough put up a gallant fight against Arsenal to hold my Gunners to nil-nil draw.
We had our chances however the guys couldn’t push the rock past the keeper Victor Valdes. Arsenal what looked like a for sure goal in the dying embers of the match the 90th minute plus three. Mesut Ozil thought poked home the rock. But wait a minute. Upon further review the goal was ruled offside and that was that.
Arsenal, looking to celebrate Arsene Wenger’s 67th birthday with a seventh successive Premier League win, dominated possession but Middlesbrough created the better opportunities with Petr Cech pulling off a series of saves to salvage a point.
Arsenal thought they had snatched all three points in stoppage time when Mesut Ozil turned in Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain’s cross-shot only to see the goal ruled out for offside as Wenger’s men had to settle for a draw, moving them temporarily top of the Premier League, with Liverpool and Manchester City still to play.”
