Spurs should win but beware old boy Defoe

Bournemouth striker Jermain Defoe
1 of 1

Premier League
Kick-off 3pm Saturday

Tottenham are set to finally get the Wembley monkey off their backs but might not have everything their own way against a Bournemouth side showing signs of improvement and spearheaded by ex-Lilywhite Jermain Defoe.

It would not be a huge surprise if Defoe found the target against his old side but the Cherries may struggle defensively against Spurs, who will have gained confidence from their 4-0 success away to Huddersfield.

Harry Kane has netted 11 goals in his last six Spurs games and is as short at 2-7 to score again.

Recommendation
Tottenham win and both teams to score
