Securing their spot in the knockout stage of this year’s Champions League on a dramatic night in North London, Tottenham will turn their attention back to Premier League duties when Bournemouth travel to town on Saturday afternoon.
Eventually picking up a 4-2 win over Olympiakos in midweek, new Spurs boss Jose Mourinho has seen his side land back-to-back victories since opening his tenure and the Lilywhites are now enjoying a five-match unbeaten run across all competitions.
On the flip side, while Tottenham might be looking to extend on their winning run, Bournemouth are a side desperately searching for some stability.
Watching Wolves pick up a 2-1 win on the South Coast last time out, the Cherries have now recorded just a single Premier League victory in their last seven attempts and they have since lost their top half status.
However, with Saturday’s guests picking up an upset 1-0 win when the two sides met at the Vitality back in May, you might be interested to know that Bournemouth can be found priced as high as 13/2 with Bet365 to clinch back-to-back shock victories this weekend.
Although they may have gone about it the hard way after coming from two goals behind to snatch three points off Olympiakos in midweek, new boss Jose Mourinho will be glad to see his side land back-to-back victories since taking over last week.
However, despite picking up a 3-2 win away at London rivals West Ham last weekend, the former Chelsea and Manchester United manager will be desperate for his side to find some much-needed defensive resolve.
Shipping a pair of goals in back-to-back appearances, Spurs have now failed to record a clean sheet in any of their last 16 Premier League matches on the bounce.
Saturday’s hosts can be found at 3/5 with Coral to have their defence breached once again on Saturday.
Although Spurs might be dealing with some glaring defensive issues, Saturday’s hosts do have one leading marksman who has continued to shine under ‘The Special One’.
Bagging a brace on Tuesday night and becoming the fastest player to score 20 Champions League goals, Harry Kane has now recorded three goals in his two matches under Mourinho.
Also already recording 23 strikes for club and country since opening the new campaign, you might be interested to know that the 26-year-old can be found at 7/10 with Ladbrokes to extend on his stellar purple patch this weekend.
Bournemouth – The away day strugglers
Suffering a nightmare first half against Wolves at the Vitality and watching the Oranges pick up a 2-1 victory, Eddie Howe’s men have now been hit with back-to-back defeats and they have recorded just a single victory since the 20th of September.
Also throwing away a one-goal lead at Newcastle earlier in the month, the Cherries have a growing reputation for their struggles outside of the South Coast.
The one-time Burnley boss has seen his side win just a pair of their last eight Premier League matches away from the Vitality and they have also won just four matches on their travels since October 2018.
A huge part of Bournemouth’s continued issues of late, particularly on the road, has been some very toothless displays in the final third.
With leading marksman Callum Wilson now failing to find the net in each of his last six Premier League appearances, the Cherries have recorded just one goal in their last four matches away from the Vitality.
Drawing a blank against the likes of Watford and League One outfit Burton Albion back in September, you might be interested to know that Saturday’s guests can be found at 5/4 with William Hill to draw another blank on the road this weekend.
