The home side got off to a quick start after Junior Stanislas put them 1-0 up in the seventh minute, moments after hitting the post.
After going a goal behind, a collision with Asmir Begovic saw the visitors lose their talismanic striker, Kane, as things went from bad to worse.
However, Dele Alli brightened Spurs day when he equalised soon after as both sides were level at the break.
After the restart, Son netted twice to turn the game in favour of Spurs, who were totally different and dominant in the second half.
Serge Aurier’s header in stoppage time wrapped up proceedings for Mauricio Pochettino’s men, who leapfrog Liverpool to third, while Bournemouth remain 12th on the table.
Historic Day For Cech As Arsenal Return To Winning Ways
North London side, Arsenal are back to winning ways after a comfortable 3-0 defeat of Watford at the Emirates.
Petr Cech was the star man, as he saved a penalty, enroute to his 200th clean sheet in the PL.
Shkodran Mustafi gave the Gunners the lead at half time, after heading in a Mesut Ozil freekick in the 8th minute.
Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang added a second after the break, latching on to a through pass from Henrikh Mkhitaryan before rounding the goalkeeper, Orestis Karnezis to score the second.
The Hornets were given a great chance from the spot to pull one back, but Cech ensured his historic day won’t be dented as he brilliantly saved Troy Deeney’s kick.
Mkhitaryan sealed all three points for Arsene Wenger’s side, when he added a third 13 minutes from time, his first goal in the PL for the club.
Arsenal remain sixth despite the result, their first win in four PL games, while Watford drop to 10th.
