The Cherries had taken the lead against Spurs through Matt Ritchie, only to ship five goals as Harry Kane bagged a hat-trick for the visitors.

Goalkeeper Artur Boruc was at fault for at least three of the Tottenham goals as Mauricio Pochettino's side dominated the second-half to wrap up a 5-1 win.

Towards the end of the game, the PA microphone appeared to be accidentally switched on and the whole ground heard a conversation between two men.

In summing up their views on the game, one claimed "it's f****** unbelievable, men against boys" - to the amusement of most of the crowd.

Both sets of supporters sang "You're getting sacked in the morning" and, after the match, a Bournemouth spokesman confirmed to Press Association Sport that the incident will be investigated.

Eddie Howe was asked about the situation in his post-match media duties but claimed he could not discern what was being discussed.

"I just heard noise, I didn't really hear any words said," he said.
