Tottenham Hotspur forward Dele Alli in training before the match.  Sprinkle dust around him. If Tottenham Hotspur are going to keep the pressure on Premier League leaders Chelsea, they cannot afford to drop any more points.

Next on their list is Bournemouth, a side who need one more win to ensure Premier League football for another season.

Eddie Howe's side know that the odds are not in their favor for this game; The Cherries haven't beaten Spurs since their promotion to the Premier League in 2015 and are coming off a comprehensive loss against Chelsea last weekend.

Speaking of Chelsea, Tottenham will have the chance to narrow the gap with a win as The Blue's game against Manchester United isn't until Sunday afternoon.

The North London side are 1/4 favorites to get the win. Bournemouth are 10/1 to win away from home in the Premier League for the first time since New Year's Eve.

The only great away result for the Cherries in the Premier League this year was their 2-2 draw with Liverpool a couple of games ago. If you fancy them to take a point from this encounter, you can back it at a price of 5/1.

Spurs' talisman, Harry Kane, will return to the starting to the line-up for the game on Saturday. He is priced at 5/2 to score the first-goal and after his impressive cameo against Watford last weekend, we certainly wouldn't back against it.

Dele Alli is another player who just can't stop scoring lately. He added to his already impressive haul in Spurs' last game with an excellent strike. He is 4/1 to get the opener against Bournemouth.

Son Heung-Min got a brace in that game against The Hornets and is also 4/1 to get the opener.

Joshua King is Bournemouth's in-form player, having netted 13 times already this season. If you think he will score first, you can back him at a price of 11/1 - which is a great price if you consider that he has scored against both Chelsea and Liverpool lately.

Last season, this fixture finished 3-0 to Spurs and if you envisage the same result on Saturday, you can back it at a price of 7-1.

Before throwing your money down, you may want to consider the fact that Howe's side have already drawn with Tottenham this year.

They held the title chasers to a goalless draw in October of last year. If you fancy another scoreless game, you can back it at a price of around 20/1.

That game wasn't at White Hart Lane and we can't see Spurs dropping vital points against a side that's so poor away from home, so our money is on Tottenham to win by more than two goals. This is priced at 9/5.
