Bournemouth vs Tottenham | EPL 22-23 | Matchday 14
The Premier League has started with a bang as teams fight tooth and nail to grab a top spot on the ladder and ultimately win the championship. As such, the level of competition this season is enormous, and any club that wants to stand a chance must give everything they’ve got to hold on to a worthy place. So with that said, let’s look at the upcoming Bournemouth vs Tottenham showdown.
On one side of this match-up, we have a club that’s just made a return to the top flight. And on the other, we have a Premier League regular. Neither team should be underestimated, with each taking the necessary steps to grab a place for itself. So now the big question is: who will win?
Bournemouth to Host a Determined Tottenham at Home
Getting Back in the Top Flight Has Been Easy for Bournemouth
The Cherries have been out of the Premier League for the last two seasons after their 2020 relegation. And, while they are league veterans, their return has been no piece of cake
In their first match, they took all three points against Aston Villa, showing signs of a team that had been built to succeed. However, this would seem like more of a lucky stroke compared to what came next.
First, they suffered two big defeats at the hands of table-topping teams. And things only got worse when they met Liverpool, who, despite not having their best start of the season, scored a crushing 9 goals without batting an eyelid. Basically, the Cherry Trees were beaten down by a killer team that knew how to take advantage of their weakness.
After this embarrassing episode, their Technical Director was dismissed, and Gary O’Neil took his place.
Now, this club is in a do-or-die position where it must take home the three points that are up for grabs in the Bournemouth vs Tottenham match. And to do so, they must take advantage of anything that will work in their favor, like the home game advantage they’ll have when they kick off at Vitality Stadium.
Tottenham Are Pretty Confident About What They Can Achieve this Season
Coming up to this Bournemouth vs Tottenham, the Spurs are going from strength to strength. They have played some excellent matches where their quality football and depth of talent have been on full display. In fact, as of its seventh matchday, the club is still undefeated this season.
However, while their win record is unquestionable, not all victories have come easy. Indeed, several have come down to the wire, finishing with the smallest of goal differences. Nonetheless, they have still managed to score at least three goals in most of their matches.
What’s more, they also seem to be getting stronger and more confident as the competition progresses. Their seventh Premiership game saw them snatch six goals from a Leicester side that left them little room to falter, where a brilliant Son Heung-Min would score the last three goals to seal the game.
And just as their motto states, “to dare is to make,” they will go into the away leg to take home three points from Bournemouth vs Tottenham.
