Tottenham remain seven points adrift of Chelsea at the top of the Premier League, despite an impressive 4-0 win over Watford, but can close the gap to four points, at least temporarily, by beating Bournemouth at White Hart Line on Saturday afternoon. Mauricio Pochettino’s side has won its last six matches in the Premier League and remains unbeaten at home – having failed to collect maximum points just twice in 16 outings at White Hart Lane – this season. The timely return of top scorer Harry Kane, who played for half an hour against the Hornets, is a boost for the Lilywhites, who’ve scored a total of 39 goals at home this season and conceded just eight.
Bournemouth, on the other hand, have picked up just six points from a possible 24 in their last eight away matches, six of which have involved at least three match goals. However, the Cherries have scored in 11 of their 16 away matches, so while they may ultimately succumb to Spurs’ superior firepower, let’s try Tottenham to win 3-1 at 12/1 with bet365.
Selection: Tottenham to win 3-1 (12/1 with bet365)
