Spurs might have lost to Anderlecht in the Europa League in midweek, but they are unbeaten in their last eight Premier League games.

That run is expected to be extended against a Bournemouth side that has been decimated by injuries to key players. That said, it’s unlikely to be an easy afternoon’s work against Eddie Howe’s extremely hard-working team.

The back four should see the return of Kyle Walker and Danny Rose alongside Toby Alderweireld and Jan Vertonghen.

Midfield is a bigger conundrum with Mauricio Pochettino beginning to have more options in the centre of the park. Eric Dier returns after suspension, while Ryan Mason is back from injury. Rather than risk Mason, we’d start him on the bench and with Dele Alli alongside Dier in the middle.

Further forward Pochettino can choose between Mousa Dembele, Christian Eriksen, Erik Lamela, Clinton Njie and Andros Townsend for the three positions behind Harry Kane. With Townsend having failed to impress in midweek, we’d push Dembele further forward with Eriksen and Lamela either side of him.

Here’s our Spurs team to face Bournemouth. What’s yours?
