Spurs v Bournemouth: (match preview)
Venue: Vitality stadium
Date: Saturday 22nd October 12:30pm
Live: Sky Sports 1 and Sky Sports Mix
Referee: Craig Pawson
Head2Heads: 3-0 Spurs, 5-1 Spurs.
Later today Spurs face Bournemouth at the Vitality stadium as Mauricio Pochettino’s side look to return to winning ways after having drawn their last two matches. Spurs face a tough test on the south coast as Eddie Howe’s attacking side have a potent attack with the likes of Callum Wilson, Josh King and Jordan Ibe all on the cherries books. We defeated Bournemouth 5-1 in this fixture last season but today’s game will be a trickier contest, Howe’s team are now an established premier league side and the Lillywhites are missing two of their most important players through injury. However, I do believe that we will defeat the Cherries fairly comfortably as I reckon our attacking prowess will prove too much for Howe’s side. COYS
Team news: Harry Kane and Toby Alderweireld both remain sidelined through injury whilst fullback Danny Rose is a doubt after picking up a foot injury in Leverkusen on Tuesday.
My predicted lineup: (4-2-3-1) Lloris, Walker, Wimmer, Vertonghen, Davies, Dembele, Wanyama, Eriksen, Alli, Son, Janssen.
My predicted scoreline: 3-0 to Spurs courtesy of goals from Son x2 and Christian Eriksen.
One to watch: Bournemouths prolific striker Callum Wilson.
