Tottenham looks to keep pace with the table’s top clubs as they travel to Vitality Stadium for a matchup with Bournemouth at 10:05 a.m. ET live online at NBC Sports Live Extra.
Spurs can leap Crystal Palace into 6th with a win today, while Bournemouth will be looking to distance themselves from the relegation zone, sitting just two points above currently with Newcastle and Sunderland hot on their heels.
Harry Kane was rested by Spurs manager Mauricio Pochettino midweek in Europa League play, coming off the bench for just 30 minutes in the loss to Anderlecht. He starts today supported by the in-form Erik Lamela and Christian Eriksen. Son Heung-min, Federico Fazio, Nabil Bentaleb and Nacer Chadli are all injured and miss out. Ryan Mason has recovered enough from a knee injury for a spot on the bench.
For Bournemouth, Artur Boruc surprisingly has recovered from a groin injury in time to start, having only suffered the injury in the warmups before last weekend’s loss to Manchester City. Andrew Surman and Marc Pugh are both available as well, good news for a club that has been struck by a string of long-term injuries to important players.
Bournemouth: Boruc, Francis, Cook, Distin, Daniels, Ritchie, Gosling, Surman, Pugh, King, Murray.
Subs: Federici, Smith, Bennett, O’Kane, Stanislas, Kermorgant, Rantie.
Tottenham: Lloris, Walker, Alderweireld, Vertonghen, Rose; Alli, Dier; Dembele, Eriksen, Lamela; Kane.
Subs: Vorm, Trippier, Wimmer, Mason, Onomah, Townsend, Clinton
