New signing Tyler Adams joins a host of injured players on the Cherries’ treatment table, as fellow new arrival Alex Scott (knee), Marcus Tavernier (unspecified), Dango Ouattara (ankle), Ryan Fredericks (calf) and Emiliano Marcondes (foot) are also unavailable for the visit of Spurs.

As for the visitors, James Maddison was seen on crutches after the victory over Manchester United, so the former Leicester City midfielder could be a doubt for this clash.

Bryan Gil (groin), Rodrigo Bentancur (knee), Ryan Sessegnon (hamstring) and Alfie Whiteman (ankle) all remain absent as they are still recovering from operations.

Spurs to win and both teams to score @ 11/5

Tottenham showed plenty of promise in their 2-0 victory over United last weekend, despite the Red Devils’ slow start to the new campaign.

Life post-Harry Kane used to be a bleak thought for Spurs fans, but Ante Postecoglou will hope that the performance was just the start of a successful season and they will travel to the South Coast with a spring in their step.

While the hosts should be more competitive under new coach Andoni Iraola, the Cherries have only won one of their past six in the Premier League at home.

Even without Kane, Spurs will feel that they can trouble Bournemouth’s backline here, as the Cherries have already conceded four goals this season.

Dominic Solanke to score anytime @ 5/2

Solanke’s efforts could prove pivotal in Bournemouth’s chances of surviving this season, and he’s already made a decent start, finding the back of the net against West Ham United.

The former Liverpool forward only scored six times last season, which is a return that he will want to improve upon.

Spurs’ defence has looked vulnerable at times, especially in the win against United, so Solanke will feel he can get at Postecoglou’s backline here.
