Our prediction for this Premier League match:
Tottenham will be looking to cement their spot in the Champions League when they take on Bournemouth at Vitality Stadium on Saturday afternoon. Spurs suffered a shocking 1-0 defeat to West Ham in the local derby at the weekend, but they are definitely capable of grabbing something from the Bournemouth clash. Harry Kane has yet to overcome his injury and in his absence a man to watch in the away team will be Korea international Son. The Cherries head into Saturday’s game following a thrilling 3-3 draw with Southampton.
Bournemouth’s Premier League status is not in danger in the season finale, which is probably the main reason why we are tempted to put our money on Eddie Howe’s troops. In their last meeting at Vitality Stadium in the English top flight Tottenham crushed Bournemouth 4-1 and given the importance of the upcoming clash for the visitors, we are tempted to put our money on Mauro Pochettino’s charges.
Highlighted Player (Joshua King):
Joshua King is a Norway international who plays for Premier League side Bournemouth as a striker. King was born in Oslo on January 15, 1992 and he started his career at the youth team of Romsas. In 2006 the Norwegian footballer moved to Valerenga and two years later he joined Premier League giants Manchester United. Nonetheless, he did not see any game action at Old Trafford as he was immediately sent on loan to Preston.
Joshua King played for the likes of Borussia M’gladbach, Hull City and Blackburn Rovers on loan as well before signing a permanent deal with the Riversiders in January, 2013. The pacey attacker scored only three goals in 56 appearances in the league for Blackburn Rovers, but in 2015 Bournemouth chiefs decided to bring him to Vitality Stadium.
Joshua King impressed in the 2016/2017 Premier League campaign, with the Norwegian striker scoring 16 goals in 36 appearances for the Cherries. King provided two assists for his teammates in the process as well.

Tottenham won the Premier League (First Division) trophy in 1950/1951 and 1960/1961 and despite producing terrific displays in the 2015/2016 campaign Mauro Pochettino’s team eventually finished the season in third place in the standings.
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.
