Spurs - DWDDW --------- Bournemouth - WLWL

For the second time in the space of two gameweeks, we welcome a team from the South Coast to North London, as Bournemoth lie in wait for Saturday afternoon's Premier League contest. We somehow scraped past Brighton & Hove Albion in a chaotic 2-1 win last weekend, while Bournemouth came away from the King Power with a 1-0 triumph over Leicester City.

An early fracas between Stellini and De Zerbi - apparently for something that the former said during apress conference - set the tone for our clash with fellow European hopefuls Brighton, and on-field tensions soon spilled over onto both benches during an all-out melee.

A few seconds after De Zerbi had been banished from the touchline, Stellini - who completely ignored the skirmishes going on around him - cut an aghast figure as he was also given a red card, with both teams seeing out the remainder of the match without their managers barking instructions from their technical areas.

Even our most ardent fans can acknowledge the good fortune our side were blessed with against Brighton, as Son and Kane's strikes either side of a Dunk’s header propelled us to a gritty win, but the Seagulls had two goals disallowed and have received an apology from the PGMOL after Hojbjergs's stamp on Mitoma inside the area went unpunished.

With just eight games left to go this season, though, an ugly win is far more preferable to a valiant defeat, and we remain just three points worse off than Newcastle United and Manchester United, although our northerly counterparts still boast a game in hand.

Seeking to stretch our unbeaten run across all competitions to six matches, we have also claimed five victories from our last five Premier League home contests - no side has earned more points on their own patch since the start of February - but recent defensive frailties are waiting to be exposed by an attack-minded Bournemouth

Putting money on Maddison to set up a goal in Leicester's clash with Bournemouth could have been a worthwhile bet for many punters, but unfortunately for the England international, his assist last weekend came at the wrong end of the field.

Maddison's shoddy backpass handed Billing his seventh goal of the season on a plate, and how Bournemouth only scored once at the King Power is anybody's guess, with Leicester's beleaguered defence coming under wave after wave of Cherries attacks.

While admitting that his side need to display a more ruthless streak in front of goal, O'Neil was overwhelmingly satisfied with a third win from five Premier League games, which keeps Bournemouth three points clear of the dotted line in 15th place.

Such is the volatile nature of the relegation battle that Bournemouth could be dragged back into the bottom three with a dissatisfactory result this weekend, and not since the 2018-19 campaign have the Cherries won back-to-back Premier League showdowns on the road.

During the short-lived Conte era, we came from 2-0 down to beat Bournemouth 3-2 in a South Coast classic back in October - winning in strikingly similar fashion to Arsenal's last-gasp Emirates win over the Cherries - and all five of our previous Premier League home games versus Bournemouth have ended in victory.


Our first game we had against Brentford was on Saturday 7th January 1922 where we beat them 2-0 at their ground.

We have since played each other 19 times where we have won 11, they won 2 and 6 drawn games

League: We have won 4, they won 1 and 4 drawn games

FA Cup: We have won 1, they have won 1 and 1 drawn game
