Former Tottenham Hotspur defender Graham Roberts has sent a message of support to some of the players ahead of tomorrow’s match against Bournemouth.

Roberts took to Twitter to say “Let’s get the job done tomorrow” to Christian Eriksen, Dele Alli, Victor Wanyma, Eric Dier, Moussa Sissoko, Kieran Trippier, Davinson Sanchez, Toby Alderweireld, Fernando Llorente and Lucas Moura.

Victory for Mauricio Pochettino’s side would guarantee themselves a place in the top four and also qualification for next season’s Champions League, which would be the shot in the arm they need ahead of Wednesday night’s second leg against Ajax.

Heung-min Son is expected to return to the starting line up following his one-match European suspension, but Spurs will be without Serge Aurier, Harry Kane, Erik Lamela and Harry Winks due to injury.

It remains to be seen what side Pochettino will select against the Cherries with one away on the match against Ajax where his side must overturn a 1-0 loss from the first leg to book their place in the final.

Here’s what Roberts had to say on Twitter.


Have something to tell us about this article?


  1. As I have said previously this is a massive, massive game for Tottenham. It is a very winnable fixture and we could seal our champions league spot next season and really focus in on Ajax Wednesday. Even a draw in my opinion would be invaluable leaving us to only need a draw next week to finish the job (although a win would be ideal). Most important I believe is that we score some goals. We have been in a drought since the 8 combine goals against Hud and Man city over a fortnight ago. I feel like it is beginning to become a mental issue as we sprayed balls everywhere against Ajax as well as West Ham and Brighton. We are getting opportunities but have failed to convert them. This is a very favorable matchup for spurs and we need to show up for this game tomorrow.
