Tottenham v Bournemouth Preview and Predictions
Spurs were impressive last time out time, beating Everton 6-2 at Goodison Park, extending their unbeaten run to six games in all competitions, and eight in league action.
They face a crucial run of games over the festive period, with the visit of Bournemouth followed by a home game against Wolves and a trip to Cardiff.
Bournemouth returned to winning ways with a 2-0 victory over Brighton in their last game, following back to back defeats to Liverpool and Wolves.
The Cherries have been poor on the road this season, winning just three times on the road so far in 2018-19, and that could be crucial in his meeting
Spurs have an excellent record against Bournemouth, are in a good run of form and will be boosted by the form shown at Goodison Park - all signs point to a home win, priced at 4/11.
Alongside their convincing win over Marco Silva's Everton, Spurs have been firing on all cylinders in recent weeks, scoring six in their three Premier League games.
With that in mind, a Spurs win and a over 1.5 total goals scored comes in at 1/2.
Tottenham to win 2-0 at 7/1
Spurs are on a roll at the moment, and if they can continue this form they look a very strong option to secure a Champions League spot before the end of the season. They will need to navigate a tricky run of games between now and the end of 2018, and that will decide their fate.
Heung-Son Min to score anytime at 5/4
South Korean international Son is bang in form, scoring three goals in his last four Premier League starts for Tottennham, and he is vital in their tactical approach. Even with Harry Kane and Alli in the side, Son is the man to watch for the Bournemouth defence on Boxing Day.
