Tottenham travel to Bournemouth in the Premier League on Sunday, and Mauricio Pochettino has a number of decisions to make regarding his team selection.

The squad may still be feeling the mental and physical effects of Wednesday night’s Champions League last-16 exit at the hands of Juventus.

Still, Spurs will be hopeful of taking all three points at the Vitality Stadium after beating Bournemouth 1-0 at Wembley earlier in the season.

Toby Alderweireld is still absent with a hamstring injury, although Pochettino provided an update on the Belgian’s fitness in a press conference on Friday.

Eric Dier’s elbow was heavily strapped up during the Juventus game following an injury he suffered in the first half.

He will be assessed before the journey to the south coast. There is a good chance Victor Wanyama, fresh from his Goal of the Month award win, will have to deputise for Dier.

Elsewhere, I wouldn’t be surprised to see Pochettino rotate his full-backs, if only to keep Serge Aurier and Danny Rose content ahead of some important upcoming fixtures.

Here’s our predicted XI to face Bournemouth – what’s yours? Let us know in the comments.


Spurs XI v Bournemouth Away



  1. I agree in the fact that I’d like to see more of Lucas however Dele does bring a lot to the team.

    It has to be Wanyama and Dembele in the middle !

    Aurier is a liability and needs to sort out his final ball.

    Trips and Rose for me.

    We should of gone for a pacey striker in the last to transfer markets , Shane Long, Iennacho , Jermaine. I’m praying Harry can keep it going physically.
