AFC Bournemouth have picked up two wins and a draw since going down 4-0 to league leaders Manchester City last month. Eddie Howe’s men gave out a footballing lesson of their own to Hull City last time out, thrashing the East Yorkshire club 6-1 on Saturday, and confidence will be high this weekend, despite the daunting opposition.
Tottenham Hotspur sit third in the table with four wins from their last five games, although a disappointing draw with West Brom at the weekend shows they sometimes lack a killer instinct. They boast the division’s meanest defence, having let in just four goals all season, but they are also a little light up front without the injured Harry Kane.
This should be an intriguing game, but visitors to the Vitality Stadium should reign in their expectations if they are hoping for another seven-goal thriller like last week. Bournemouth have won their last three Premier League home games and will fight hard for the points, but the Spurs defence has proved sturdy this year.
A lot depends on whether Tottenham’s misfiring Vincent Janssen can break his Premier League duck, or if manager Mauricio Pochettino favours the energetic Heung-Min Son to lead his line. A single goal either way could decide it, but a draw seems likely and, at 11/4 with Betfred, it’s very good value.
