15:02 EAT 24/12/2018
Tottenham
Spurs boast an excellent record in this fixture and we are backing another frustrating Premier League trip to north London for Eddie Howe's Cherries

Sunday saw Tottenham involved in the highest scoring match of the Premier League season so far as they triumphed 6-2 at Goodison Park against Everton.

Mauricio Pochettino's side have won as many league games as Manchester City as the north Londoners will be aiming to keep up their outside chances of the title by beating Bournemouth at Wembley on Boxing Day.

Latest odds

The Cherries head to the capital on a run of three successive away defeats and William Hill price them at 17/2 (9.50) to end that sequence with a victory on Wednesday.

Spurs have won six of their eight home league games this term, with their two defeats coming against the only two sides above them in the table (Liverpool and Manchester City). A home win is offered at 32/100 (1.32) with the draw priced at 17/4 (5.25).

Team news

Dele Alli was withdrawn at half time during the win over Everton but should be available. Spurs remain without Mousa Dembele, Victor Wanyama and Eric Dier, whilst the game may come too soon for centre-back Davinson Sanchez.

For Bournemouth, Lewis Cook, Adam Smith and Dan Gosling are all missing. 

Preview

Bournemouth's away record this term has seen them win three and lose five matches on the road and whilst they have found the back consistently - netting in seven of their last ten away encounters - against Spurs they have historically struggled.

Since promotion to the top flight, Bournemouth have picked up just one point from the six league games that have played against the north Londoners and in the three away matches they have contested, they have lost without scoring. 

Tips and predictions

Tottenham to win to nil is offered at 13/10 (2.30) and has paid out in eight of their last 15 home league matches. Opposing goals at both ends also looks like a good option at evens (2.00), while Spurs to keep a clean sheet is priced at 11/10 (2.10)

Tottenham to win to nil at 13/10 (2.30) for a 1.5pt stake with William Hill
