Bournemouth host Tottenham Hotspur in key game for both sides at both ends of the Premier League table.

The Cherries are desperate for points as time runs out on their time in the top tier after five successive defeats in the league.

While Spurs are still in the hunt to qualify for Europe next season, with the north London derby against Arsenal also in the thoughts of Jose Mourinho.

A top four finish is still a possibility for Mourinho too, with victory here enough to close the gap to six points on Leicester City in fourth.

Here are the predicted line-ups for the game at the Vitality Stadium.

Prediction

It wasn’t pretty last time out as Spurs edged past Everton, but Jose Mourinho’s side know results are all that matters at this stage of the season. While Bournemouth will hope to cause an upset to bring to life their bid to beat the drop, their form has shown no signs of changing, while Spurs have enough quality to cope here, despite the importance of Arsenal this weekend. We’ll opt for a 2-0 away win as Spurs heap more misery on the Cherries.
