The Spurs must be feeling frustrated. Despite the loss-less record (they have 5 wins, 3 draws) they’re still one point away from first place in the Premier League. Manchester City and Arsenal are currently in front of the Spurs, so a high scoring game against 11th place Bournemouth could catapult Tottenham to the top.
“It’s a big motivation for us to finish the game and take the three points to be top of the table,” Dele Alli, 20, of Tottenham said ahead of the game, per Yahoo Sports. “Better motivation is impossible. The motivation has been very good on the training ground. Our players are very focused and it’s a good opportunity to see us at the top of the table.”
Tottenham is coming off a pair of middling draws, as they held Bayer Leverkusen to a scoreless draw in the Champions League. Before that, they played West Brom to a 1-1 standstill. Yet, with both teams earning seven points over their last three league games, according to BBC’s Steve Wilson, this “should be a closer game than the Spurs’ 5-1 win [last year.]”
Uh-oh. That means Tottenham better not sleep on Bournemouth. If they think third place is too far from the top of the table, suffering a loss will make them fall even further down.
Will history repeat, HollywoodLifers? Will Tottenham trounce the Cherries or will Bournemouth battle back to beat the Spurs? Will these teams find themselves evenly match and play to another draw?
