Premier League

Sunday’s Premier League action concludes at the Vitality Stadium where Bournemouth take on Tottenham Hotspur.

The hosts are without a win in three, but have lost just one of their last six and began the weekend in twelfth place, a point shy of tenth place Brighton and Hove Albion.

Back-to-back draws have seen them move six points clear of the bottom three and while Eddie Howe will not be resting on his laurels, he will surely believe his side have enough to not be dragged into the mire.

Jordan Ibe, Ryan Fraser and Marc Pugh all have question marks over their fitness with all three set to be assessed ahead of kick-off and Tyrone Mings is definitely out while Jermaine Defoe could be set to be recalled to the starting line-up.

Callum Wilson is 8.5 (15/2) to open the scoring with some firms with Josh King a 10.5 (19/2) chance with Unibet.

The home win is 6.4 (27/5) with Unibet, who have the draw at 4.65 (62/17). The visitors are favourites at 1.53 (8/15) with a number of firms.

Having not lost in any competition since before Christmas Mauricio Pochettino’s men were beaten by Tottenham Hotspur on Wednesday evening in a result that saw them eliminated from the Champions League.

However, their fine league form has left them in a strong position to qualify for Europe’s premiere competition next season and victory here will at least maintain a five point advantage over fifth place Chelsea.

Toby Alderweireld is back in training but is unlikely to feature here though Eric Dier could be involved and Serge Aurier is available after serving a European suspension midweek.

Harry Kane is favourite to open the scoring at 3.5 (5/2) with most firms with Son Heung-Min, who has five in his last three appearances widely available at 6.0 (5/1).

Christian Eriksen got the only goal of the game in the reverse fixture at Wembley back in October – the fourth straight game where Spurs have kept a clean sheet against Howe’s men.

With that in mind you may be tempted to back the away win to nil at a price of 2.8 (9/5).
