The Line: Bournemouth Draw Tottenham Hotspur
Sky Sports; ESPN; Fox Sports
While the Manchester Derby will take most of the attention on Sunday at 14.05, Bournemouth will be taking on Tottenham Hotpsur in a must win game for both teams. Tottenham come into this game off the back of a loss to Anderlecht in the Europa League, the team performed extremely poorly on the night after a great start to the game. Manuel Pochettino's team is looking to move up the table and start competeing for Champions League football. This is a huge game for Tottenham and Harry Kane , Cristian Erickson and Son will be the key men for Spurs as they look to win a gameagais, Spurs havent won a game in four as they have drawn three and won one of their last four. Tottenham have struggled on the road with only one win in their last five, can they get a result here against the newly promoted team?
Bournemouth have been struggling of late losing three of their last five Premier League games, the newly promoted side have struggled on the road but at home they have picked up five of their eight points and only lost one game at home which was one of their first of the season. Eddie Howe's side are struglling for consistancy and partially due to the huge amount of injuries they have had. Injury has robbed them of Calum Wilson, Gradel and Mings. Bouremouth need to pick up points at home if they are going to survive in this league but this is a tough ask against one of the best teams in the league.
This one is so tough to call, I think that Bournemouth will be tough to beat tomorrow but Tottenham really are the ones under pressure to produce a performance. For me though this is not a clear enough pick and I think that the draw here looks the value. Bournemouth have proven to be tough to beat at home and I think Tottenham will struggle to break them down on Sunday.
