Tottenham Hotspur will lock horns with Bournemouth at the Vitality Stadium this Saturday afternoon as they hope to secure maximum points on the road in the Premier League. The North London club secured an impressive 2-0 win over Manchester United recently which will keep them in high spirits going into this league clash away from home.
Angelos Postecoglu will set his men up in a 4-2-3-1 formation and is expected to make one change to his first XI for this game. Manor Solomon will get a chance to play from the start as James Maddison is struggling to recover in time from a knee injury.
4-2-3-1 Tottenham Hotspur Predicted Lineup To Face Bournemouth
Guglielmo Vicario will operate in between the sticks for the London club after earning a clean sheet versus Man United earlier this month. Micky van de Ven will function alongside Cristian Romero at the centre of Tottenham’s backline as they focus on keeping the Bournemouth attackers frustrated throughout the 90 minutes.
Pedro Porro will fill in as the right-back while Destiny Udogie looks to give a good account of himself as the left-back. Both of them will need to keep things solid at the back and limit the chances the opposition create on the counter.
Ben Davies will provide cover for the defensive positions on the bench.
Yves Bissouma and Pape Matar Sarr will anchor the midfield for Spurs as they try to make life tough for the opposition at the centre of the park.
The gifted trio of Heung-min Son, Manor Solomon and Dejan Kulusevski will play just ahead of them as part of Postecoglu’s attack. All three of them need to be at their best if they are to engineer enough chances for Tottenham to win this Premier League contest.
Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg and Ivan Perisic will be available for selection on the bench as they await their opportunity to influence the game in the second 45 minutes if needed.
James Maddison is unlikely to recover in time for this game.
Richarlison will spearhead Postecoglu’s attack in the final third. He failed to find the back of the net versus Man United recently, so the Brazilian talent would be eager to get his name on the scoresheet at the Vitality Stadium this weekend.
