Tottenham Hotspur vs Bournemouth

Tottenham Hotspur Stadium is the venue as Tottenham Hotspur and Bournemouth go head-to-head in their final Premier League game of 2023.

Tottenham delivered a nightmarish defensive showing in midweek Premier League action, falling 4-0 down before a late consolation double softened the blow in a dismal 4-2 defeat at Brighton. After relinquishing a three-game winning league run and failing to keep a clean sheet for the ninth time in their last ten matches, ‘Spurs’ return home, seeking amends for a missed opportunity to leapfrog Manchester City into fourth. Ange Postecoglou’s men have rebuilt their home fortress in the wake of three consecutive league defeats, winning back-to-back fixtures at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium. Both those victories saw them lead 2-0 at halftime, which is in line with their proclivities for scoring early goals. ‘Spurs’ have, indeed, opened the scoring in a league-high 79% of their Premier League outings this season (15/19).

In the meantime, Bournemouth’s unprecedented rise continued in midweek as a 3-0 demolition of Fulham extended their formidable unbeaten run in the Premier League to seven matches (W6, D1). Even though it took them ten rounds into the new campaign to get into the win column, the ‘Cherries’ are three points away from recording their best-ever 19-game start to a new top-flight season, highlighting Andoni Iraola’s sterling job in Boscombe. Despite losing three straight league games on the road against sides from the upper half of the table before a 3-0 romping of Manchester United in December, Bournemouth won’t let Tottenham’s stature faze them. The visitors come into proceedings on the back of four successive league wins away from home, all of which saw them score multiple goals.
