Our football match prediction:
Tottenham Hotspur play host to Bournemouth at Wembley Stadium on day 8 of the new Premier League campaign. Spurs have been struggling at home ground this season and it has to be noted that they are after their first win at Wembley Stadium. Harry Kane was struggling to find his best form in August, but he has been scoring goals for fun in the English elite division of late and the opposition defenders are likely to have their work cut out for them when facing the English striker. Tottenham aim to retain their spot in top four and we predict that they will go all guns blazing at Bournemouth. The Cherries, on the other hand, are after their second win of the season, but seeing that they suffered a loss in each of their previous three away games in the league, Eddie Howe’s troops are unlikely to claim a major scalp on Matchday 8.
Highlighted Player (Hugo Lloris):
Hugo Lloris is regarded as one of the best goalkeepers in the world of football. The French international was born on 26 December, 1986 and he began his senior career at Nice in 2002. After spending six years with les Aiglons, Hugo Lloris signed a contract with fellow Ligue 1 side Lyon in 2008. The 29-year-old goalkeeper made 146 appearances for the French giants, but in 2012 he moved to London. Tottenham Hotspur completed the deal for the impressive shot-stopper on 31 August, 2012 for a fee of €10 million and €5 million variable and, no doubt, he made a right decision when he decided to join the White Hart Lane outfit. Speaking of his individual awards, Hugo Lloris was named Ligue 1 Goalkeeper of the Year on three occasions (2008/2009, 2009/2010 and 2011/2012). The 188-cm-tall goalkeeper earned his 82nd cap for the French national team in the Euro 2016 final against Portugal. However, Eder’s goal spoiled the party of les Tricolores at Stade de France.
Highlighted Team (Bournemouth):
Bournemouth are a professional football club that was formed back in 1890. The Cherries secured promotion to the Premier League in the 2015/2016 season, with the team making it to the English top flight for the first time ever. Bournemouth play their home games at Dean Court and the capacity of the stadium is 11,469. The Cherries enjoyed a very successful season on their Premier League debut, with the team beating the likes of Chelsea and Manchester United in the national championship. Glenn Murray scored the winner for Bournemouth in the 1-0 win over the capital club at Stamford Bridge and that is probably the greatest victory in the club’s history. Bournemouth have been participating in the FA Cup since 1913, but they have yet to win the trophy in the prestigious competition. It has to be noted that the club’s original name Boscombe Athletic Football Club was changed to Bournemouth back in 1923 as the club owners wanted the Cherries to be more representative of the district.
