AFC Bournemouth vs Tottenham Hotspur
England – Premier League
Date: Sunday, 11 March 2018
Kick-Off at 16:00 UK
Venue: VItality Stadium (Bournemouth).
Tottenham Hotspur will be hoping to heal their wounds after a disappointing Champions League elimination to Juventus on Wednesday evening. Mauricio Pochettino’s side will get back to domestic affairs on Sunday when they are set to travel to Vitality Stadium to take on AFC Bournemouth in the 30th round of the competition.
The Argentine manager now has the imperative to secure the top four finish and book his team a place in the elite competition next year. The Spurs have been on pace in accomplishing such objective in the last couple of weeks when they’ve picked up three straight victories in the Premier League. This sees them five points off the fifth-placed Chelsea.
Pochettino has reasons to be satisfied with his team’s defensive performances of late since the Spurs have kept three clean sheets on the trot in the domestic league. Away from home, Tottenham have won three and drawn two of last five games in the Premier League keeping clean sheets in three of five games in the process.
Eddie Howe’s main objective will be stopping league’s top scorer Harry Kane (24 goals so far in the season) as well as in-form Son Heung-Min who has notched a brace in last weekend’s home win over Huddersfield Town.
Given that ASFC Bournemouth have been fairly ease to break down lately (seven goals conceded in last three league matches), we would not be surprised to see both Kane and Son on the scoresheet on Sunday at Vitality Stadium.
