Jude Bellingham responds to Tottenham win at Bournemouth with two-word message


Tottenham Hotspur continued their superb start to the season with a 2-0 win at AFC Bournemouth on Saturday.

James Maddison and Dejan Kulusevski scored either side of half-time to hand Ange Postecoglou's side a second consecutive 2-0 win after beating Manchester United last weekend. Spurs opened their season with a creditable 2-2 draw at Brentford and have gone from strength to strength under Postecoglou and key to their brilliant start has been Maddison.

The £40 million summer signing from Leicester City has one goal and two assists to his name so far this season and has settled into life at Spurs quickly. He is clearly loving life at the club, taking to social media after the Bournemouth game to send a message to Spurs fans.

Amid a raft of posts to his Instagram story from the match, he uploaded a picture to the picture-sharing platform of him celebrating his goal in his trademark style, replicating a darts player's action. "Happy Saturdays from me and the old boy in Row E," he wrote, accompanied with a picture of a Bournemouth fan gesticulating at Maddison.

The post got plenty of responses, including from Spurs team-mates Micky Van de Ven, Pedro Porro and Dane Scarlett. But a couple of names stood out in Maddison's England team-mates Jordan Henderson and Jude Bellingham.

Bellingham wrote 'a joy' while Henderson commented with clapping and fire emojis. Maddison said after the game he is thriving on the responsibility of being a driving force at Spurs after the departure of Harry Kane for Bayern Munich earlier this month.

"The type of person I am, I'm at my best when I have responsibility on my shoulders and that's when I thrive," he said. "I am a player who loves to be on the ball and that fits with how the manager wants his players to play.

"This was a good day for all that. "We've got the bit between our teeth.

"We have some momentum, so long may that continue and hopefully we can still implement the final steps the gaffer wants to see, which is attacking football."
