Wales On Sunday - - SPORT ON SUNDAY -

TOT­TEN­HAM again pro­duced a gritty per­for­mance away from home, with Juan Foyth’s 66th-minute goal the dif­fer­ence in a 1-0 vic­tory.

Af­ter the game, Dele Alli praised team-mate Foyth, who scored the win­ning goal at Sel­hurst Park af­ter giv­ing away two penal­ties against Wolves last week­end.

“He de­serves plenty of credit, not only did he play well but he got the goal as well,” Alli told Sky Sports Pre­mier League.

“He showed great char­ac­ter to bounce back af­ter last week af­ter giv­ing away two penal­ties but it’s a learn­ing ex­pe­ri­ence and he’s done well.

“It wasn’t pretty to watch at times, but this is a very dif­fi­cult place to come and get a re­sult. We showed char­ac­ter.”

High-fly­ing Bournemouth were beaten 2-1 by New­cas­tle at St James’ Park and lost Adam Smith to a se­ri­ous-look­ing knee in­jury.

Smith re­ceived oxy­gen on the pitch af­ter go­ing down as he pre­pared to take a free-kick. New­cas­tle were al­ready ahead thanks to Salomon Ron­don’s first Pre­mier League goal of the sea­son in the sev­enth minute, and he dou­bled the lead in the 40th minute.

Jef­fer­son Lerma pulled one back in eight min­utes of first-half stop­page time but New­cas­tle hung on to climb out of the bot­tom three.

Ref­eree Si­mon Hooper was cen­tre stage in Southamp­ton’s 1-1 draw with Wat­ford.

Manolo Gab­bia­dini’s first goal of the cam­paign gave Saints the lead in the 20th minute and Hooper’s first con­tentious de­ci­sion came when he de­nied Wat­ford a penalty af­ter Ryan Ber­trand ap­peared to take out Nathaniel Chalobah.

Less than 10 min­utes later, Char­lie Austin thought he had dou­bled Southamp­ton’s ad­van­tage only for Hooper to rule it out, and Jose Hole­bas equalised eight min­utes from time.

There was plenty of emo­tion on show but no goals at the King Power Sta­dium as Leices­ter paid trib­ute to late owner Vichai Sri­vad­dhanaprabha ahead of a 0-0 draw with Burn­ley.

It was a point apiece, too, at Hud­der­s­field, where the Ter­ri­ers were de­nied a sec­ond vic­tory of the week by Felipe An­der­son’s equaliser for West Ham.

Alex Pritchard gave Hud­der­s­field, who claimed their first win of the sea­son against Ful­ham on Mon­day, the lead in only the sixth minute but An­der­son con­tin­ued his hot streak to make it 1-1 16 min­utes from time.

Pep Guardi­ola has warned his Manch­ester City team to be ready - be­cause Manch­ester United will have their mo­ments in to­day’s derby (4.30pm).

City have thrashed Southamp­ton and Shakhtar Donetsk 6-1 and 6-0 re­spec­tively in the past week but Guardi­ola is ex­pect­ing some­thing much dif­fer­ent as the Pre­mier League lead­ers face im­prov­ing United at the Eti­had Sta­dium.

The City boss said: “Against the top teams like United, Chelsea, Tot­ten­ham, Liver­pool – you can­not imag­ine for 90 min­utes we are go­ing to play amaz­ingly and not give them a chance.

“When they have the ball and the peo­ple in front - wow - they can create some­thing.

“They have an in­cred­i­ble amount of tal­ent up front and in the mid­dle as well. That is why we have to de­fend deep and strong, de­fend the crosses and avoid set-pieces as they are huge and far bet­ter than us.”

In other matches to­day, Liver­pool face Ful­ham at An­field (noon), Chelsea en­ter­tain Ever­ton (2.15pm) and Arse­nal are home to Wolves (4.30pm).
