Tottenham Hotspur faces AFC Bournemouth
Tottenham Hotspur faces AFC Bournemouth at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium in a game from the 14th round of the Premier League. This is a fine moment to discuss this match with you in our English Premier League predictions for today.
Two wins from two matches played – this is Jose Mourinho’s record since his arrival at Spurs. After winning against West Ham in the Premier League, during the week the Special One led his boys to a difficult 4-2 win against Olympiakos in the Champions League. We are saying difficult because until the 45th minute it was 0-2 for the Greeks.
It’s pretty clear that Mourinho will need some time to revive the team which was struggling since the start of the season, but the Portuguese manager can be happy with the way he started his tenure here. In the Premier League Spurs need points, because they are currently 10th in the table with 17 points in their record. They have won just 4 of their 13 games in the Prem so far – a pretty good reason for the sacking of Mauricio Pochettino.
Against Bournemouth Tottenham will be without Tanguy NDombele, Ben Davies, Hugo Lloris and Erik Lamela, who are all injured.
How are AFC Bournemouth doing so far? The Cherries are 11th in the standings with 16 points, just one position and one point behind their next opponent.
Against Spurs Bournemouth will try to stop their run of two consecutive losses in the league. After defeats against Newcastle United and Wolverhampton Wanderers, the Cherries lost their place in the Top 10.
Against Spurs Bournemouth will be without their Norwegian target man Joshua King, who is injured. David Brooks and Junior Stanislas are also unavaliable.
That’s our English Premier League predictions for today for the match between Tottenham Hotspur and Brighton & Hove Albion on Saturday. Will Mourinho make it three from three with Spurs? Most likely.
