After exiting the Europa League to Borussia Dortmund on Thursday, Spurs now host Bournemouth at White Hart Lane in the league, their only remaining chance of silverware this season.

When the sides met in late October, the Lilywhites ran out emphatic 5-1 winners with Harry Kane scoring a hat-trick against an abysmal Artur Boruc.

Since then, the Polish keeper’s form has dramatically improved along with the team’s results, and the Cherries now find themselves more or less safe from relegation with eight games remaining.

Nevertheless, Eddie Howe’s men will be coming to White Hart Lane still hoping to put a dent in the North Londoner’s title hopes and with Bournemouth unbeaten away from home in 2016, Spurs will have to be on good form to secure all three points.

The game takes on even more significance for Mauricio Pochettino’s side with upcoming games against Liverpool, Manchester United and Chelsea so a victory on Sunday could be pivotal come the end of the season.

With this mind, here is a predicted XI for the game.
