Tottenham Hotspur Starting XI Prediction vs AFC Bournemouth

Share

The arrival of Jose Mourinho has brought new life to what had been a moribund domestic season at White Hart Lane. Tottenham Hotspur have lofty goals and realistic ambitions again this season, as the Special One has injected new life into the squad. Up next for Spurs is a Saturday home clash against AFC Bournemouth.

Mourinho will have a decently fit squad to select from, but he will be without the services of a few key players. Midfielder/winger Erik Lamela (thigh), back-up goalkeeper Michele Vorm (calf), team captain, number one Hugo Lloris (elbow) and right back Ben Davies (ankle) are out of action in this one.

That all said, let’s take a look at who Mourinho might pick for his first team here.

Tottenham Hotspur vs AFC Bournemouth FYIs

Kickoff: Nov. 30, 3pm Tottenham Hotspur Stadium

Odds: Tottenham 4-11 Bournemouth 15-2 Draw 9-2

Prediction: Tottenham Hotspur 2, Bournemouth 1

This should be a match that the north London side should not have any issues controlling. They have superior talent to the Cherries, and with Mourinho’s tactics, as less than exciting as they may be to some, should work effectively against Bournemouth this weekend.
