Mauricio Pochettino's men will hope to bounce back against the Cherries after a heartbreaking defeat to Juventus in the Champions League

Tottenham must bounce back from European heartache if they are to continue to stake their claim for a second-place finish in the Premier League.

Spurs lost 2-1 to Juventus in midweek, confirming their exit from the Champions League at the last-16 stage, following a 2-2 draw in Turin.

Mauricio Pochettino's men have, however, been on a fine run in the Premier League, and have not lost since a 4-1 thrashing at the hands of champions-elect Manchester City in December.


Tottenham injuries


Toby Alderweireld remains out for Spurs due to a hamstring injury.

The Belgium international missed the midweek encounter with Juve, and faces a late fitness test to ascertain whether he will be fit for Sunday's clash.

Other than Alderweireld, Pochettino has a fully fit squad at his disposal.


Tottenham suspensions


Spurs have no suspended players.


Tottenham team news


Pochettino may rotate somewhat following Spurs' exertions in midweek, with Serge Aurier and Danny Rose likely to return at full-back.

Aurier was suspended against Juve, while Ben Davies was preferred over Rose at left-back.

Mousa Dembele battled back to fitness to play against the Italian giants but could be replaced by Victor Wanyama in midfield, while Lucas Moura is long overdue a start in the Premier League - he could replace Dele Alli.

Harry Kane is sure to start up front, while Hugo Lloris will play in goal.
