Our prediction for this Premier League match:
Bournemouth will be looking to make amends for a heavy 5-2 loss to Man Utd when they face Tottenham at their Vitality Stadium. The Cherries are one point behind the safe zone, meaning that Thursday’s football match is of big importance for the relegation strugglers. Eddie Howe’s troops are on a five-game losing run in the Premier League, but they are surely capable of matching Spurs, who have been having their ups and downs after the coronavirus football break.
Jose Mourinho’s men are eager to represent England in European competitions next season, but beating Bournemouth at Vitality Stadium is easier said than done. Considering that Spurs experienced all sorts of problems at the back in a 3-1 loss at Sheffield United, we are tempted to put our money on the relegation strugglers. The good news for the hosts is that attacker Callum Wilson returns from suspension.

Tottenham’s bitter rivals are Arsenal, but Chelsea and West Ham United are regarded as the team’s fierce opponents as well. Spurs have won eight FA Cup trophies, with the team also lifting the 1962/1963 UEFA Cup Winners’ Cup title.
