Jose Mourinho takes his Tottenham Hotspur to struggling Bournemouth in a game that will have a huge impact at both ends of the table.

Spurs are still in the hunt for a place in Europe, but will have an eye on the north London derby this weekend against Arsenal.

While the Cherries are desperate at this stage to accumulate points – with five successive defeats in the Premier League and four straight losses since the restart.

Eddie Howe’s side came up short at Tottenham Hotspur Stadium earlier this season, with Dele Alli’s double inspiring Spurs to a 3-2 win.

It wasn’t pretty last time out as Spurs edged past Everton, but Jose Mourinho’s side know results are all that matters at this stage of the season. While Bournemouth will hope to cause an upset to bring to life their bid to beat the drop, their form has shown no signs of changing, while Spurs have enough quality to cope here, despite the importance of Arsenal this weekend. We’ll opt for a 2-0 away win as Spurs heap more misery on the Cherries.
