Bournemouth have been on a fantastic run of form over the past month and they can continue on their upward trajectory when taking on Spurs at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium on Sunday.

Tottenham continue to be hampered by injuries and suspension, with no less than 10 players missing for this fixture, and visitors Bournemouth will be hoping to take advantage of their fatigued hosts.

Team News

Tottenham are without the injured James Maddison, Micky van de Ven, Manor Solomon, Ivan Perisic, Ryan Sessegnon, Alfie Whiteman, Rodrigo Bentancur and Cristian Romero for this clash.

Spurs are also missing the suspended pair of Dejan Kulusevski and Yves Bissouma, although Oliver Skipp is expected to return to the squad after recovering from a minor knock.

Bournemouth confirmed Hamed Traore has been out of action for the last month with malaria and will subsequently miss the African Cup of Nations as he continues his recovery.

The Cherries are also without the injured quartet of Milos Kerkez, Lloyd Kelly, Tyler Adams and Ryan Fredericks, but Lewis Cook is pushing to make his return from an adductor issue.

Match Odds

Tottenham are the 8/11 favourites to bounce back to winning ways on home soil, with the draw priced at 16/5 and the Cherries 3/1 to claim the spoils.

Both teams to score has landed in 14 of Tottenham's 19 league fixtures this season and it is 2/5 for this to happen again, while it is 7/4 that this doesn't come off.

Bournemouth to win @ 3/1

It was not an easy start to life as Bournemouth manager for Andoni Iraola, who failed to win any of his first nine league matches in charge and was beginning to face calls for the sack.

Fast-forward a couple of months and the 41-year-old Spanish tactician currently has the Cherries on a seven-game unbeaten streak of which they have won six and drawn one.

The confidence is flowing at both ends of the pitch with the Cherries scoring 18 goals during this seven-match unbeaten run and keeping four clean sheets, and they look like a great price at 3/1 to chalk up another victory.

The south-coast outfit have also won their last four outings, notably triumphing 3-0 at Manchester United, and the club are now looking up the table rather than over their shoulders.

Spurs are walking wounded and they looked like a tired side in the 4-2 defeat at Brighton on Thursday, with Ange Postecoglou presented with few options to change things up.

Tottenham may have won their last two home games, but they lost three on the bounce before that and they may struggle to contain a Bournemouth side now thriving under Iraola.

Dominic Solanke to score anytime @ 13/8

One player who has gone up a level since Iraola took charge is Dominic Solanke, who continues to be linked with a January transfer away from the club due to his superb form.

The 26-year-old has scored eight goals in his last seven appearances, taking his overall tally to 12 goals to leave him just two behind Golden Boot leader Erling Haaland of Manchester City.

Solanke's last away fixture ended with him bagging a hat-trick in the 3-2 win at Forest and it would be no surprise to see him find the back of the net again.
