- 1 Bournemouth vs Tottenham Predicted Lineups and News
Bournemouth – Cherries await a second consecutive win over Spurs
Bournemouth’s failure to win the first two matches of the season means that the Cherries have now gone without a victory in the top division for six consecutive games. The team has struggled to convert decent performances into victories when they are playing at the Vitality Stadium. Apart from a victory over struggling Leeds United, there has not been much joy for Bournemouth when it comes to home games since April.
The Cherries need to quickly bounce back or they risk getting into relegation trouble even before things heat up in the Premier League.
Team news: Bournemouth
Bournemouth’s new signing, Tyler Adams, will be on the sidelines, as he has been carrying a hamstring injury. Lewis Cook and Adam Smith will be undergoing a late fitness test in order to decide their participation. A number of other players are also unavailable for the upcoming game. Coach Andoni Iraola has Dango Ouattara, Marcus Tavernier, Ryan Fredericks, Alex Scott, and Emiliano Marcondes are certainly ruled out of the game.
Bournemouth Predicted Lineups (4-2-3-1):
Neto, Max Aarons, Illia Zabarnyi, Marcos Senesi, Milos Kerkez, Philip Billing, Joe Rothwell, Antoine Semenyo, Ryan Christie, Jaidon Anthony, Dominic Solanke
Tottenham – Revenge for Last Season’s Defeat?
Tottenham produced a stellar performance to pick up a first win of the season, as they beat Manchester United with a convincing performance. Crucially, Ange Postecoglou was able to witness some great individual performances – especially in the middle of the park – against the Red Devils. This will provide Spurs with plenty of confidence about being able to tackle the rest of the campaign, although they may lack a finisher following the departure of Harry Kane. Richarlison blew hot and cold in the game against United. The priority from Spurs will be to increase the supply chain for Richarlison, who clearly has a lot of potential and an eye for goal.
Team news: Tottenham
Spurs manager Ange Postecoglou comes into the fixture without a handful of players. The big blow will be the potential absence of James Maddison, who will be undergoing a late fitness test. The former Leicester City midfielder was influential in the game against Manchester United. Bryan Gill, Rodrigo Bentancur, and Ryan Sessegnon are definitely ruled out of the game with injuries. Since there is enough cover in the middle of the park for James Maddison, Spurs should be happy with the preparations for the upcoming league encounter.
Tottenham Predicted Lineups (4-2-3-1):
Guglielmo Vicario, Pedro Porro, Cristian Romero, Micky van de Ven, Iyenoma Udogie, Pape Sarr, Yves Bissouma, Dejan Kulusevski, Giovani Lo Celso, Heung-Min Son, Richarlison
