Tottenham Hotspur vs Bournemouth match preview
Can Tottenham Hotspur keep pace with the Champions League places ahead of a crucial week?
Last Saturday, Spurs somehow beat Brighton 2-1, thanks in no small part to some baffling refereeing decisions that went their way.
The Seagulls had two goals disallowed and were denied two clear penalties, with Son Heung-min curling home a trademark opener, before Harry Kane fired in the winner.
That made it five successive home wins for Cristian Stellini’s side, form that is keeping their Champions League hopes alive.
After this, Tottenham’s next three games are Newcastle (A), Manchester United (H) and Liverpool (A), all taking place in the space of eight days.
This’ll be a season-defining week for Spurs, who start this weekend fifth, three points below both Newcastle and Man United.
Given what’s to come, this is simply must win.
AFC Bournemouth meanwhile, despite having been written off by most all season, are edging towards survival.
The Cherries beat relegation rivals Leicester City at the King Power a week ago, with Philip Billing the afternoon’s only scorer.
As a result, Gary O’Neil’s side have won three of their last five, climbing up to 15th, three points clear of danger.
Another couple of wins from their remaining eight games could be enough to see the Cherries survive against the odds.
Bournemouth have lost all five away matches they’ve ever played against Spurs, conceding 16 goals and scoring just two.
This trend is set to continue at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium.
Tottenham Hotspur team news
Richarlison is fit again, but he’s set to remain on the bench after Son Heung-min bagged his 11th goal of the season last weekend.
At wing-back, with Ben Davies and Emerson sidelined, Pedro Porro and Ivan Perišić can expect extended runs in the team.
Back in October, Spurs came from 2-0 down to win 3-2 at Dean Court but the match-winner that day, Rodrigo Bentancur, is also out long-term.
Predicted XI (5-2-3): Lloris; Porro, Romero, Dier, Lenlet, Perišić; Højbjerg, Skipp; Kuluševski, Son Heung-min, Kane.
Bournemouth team news
Philip Billing’s excellent goal-scoring form continued at Leicester, taking his tally to seven for the campaign.
In defence, it’ll be Jack Stephens and Chris Mepham again with Marcos Senesi a doubt.
Right-back Adam Smith is one yellow card away from a two-match ban.
Predicted XI (4-5-1): Neto; Smith, Stephens, Mepham, Kelly; Rothwell, Lerma, Billing, Christie, Ouattara; Solanke.
