Let's make it celebration time Spurs!

It was celebration time when we last played Bournemouth. Firstly, it was Christmas as we played our home game at Wembley on Boxing Day. Secondly, we won 5-0, with Son heung-min scoring twice. Thirdly, the win took us to second place in the Premier League and would you believe above title favourites Man City, who lost their third league game in four at Leicester.

Since then, City have lost only two games in 29 played. One was a Premier League game at Newcastle. The other was to Spurs, but in the Champions League quarter-final first leg. Son scored that goal too!

Spurs are now 22 points behind City, and we've lost 12 of the 26 games we have played since Boxing Day, 8 of which were in the league. That Bournemouth game came on the back of a massive 6-2 win at Goodison Park, which itself followed a 2-0 EFL quarter-final win away to Arsenal. Spurs were certainly in fine form then!

With our remaining Premier League games against Bournemouth then Everton, we could do with finding such form again. Despite our recent run, we are in the fortunate position of needing one win from these two games to ensure our Champions League qualification for a fourth consecutive season. Let's make it a celebration time on the South coast tomorrow!

"Sonny" will return for Tottenham, but we will once again be weakened by the absence of familiar names (Kane, Winks, Aurier, Llamela) and now also Jan Vertonghen. It has been confirmed that "Super" Jan was not concussed following his head injury on Tuesday, but a short period of rehabilitation has been recommended, and will be taken. Jan will hopefully be fit and fine for next Wednesday night's crunch game in Amsterdam.

With that Champions League game in mind, team selection might be a problem, but "Poch" surely has to go for his strongest available side tomorrow. That has to mean Sissoko and Son being included. If we get the win under our belt we will all be able to relax for the week to come, won't we?

Bournemouth can already relax, of course, as their fifth Premier League season was assured when they beat Brighton 5-0 a couple of weeks ago. The "Cherries" have surely been the most inconsistent side of the season. Between October and March they lost every away game they played. One of those wins was a 4-0 at Watford on 6th October. Eddie Howe's team astounded Chelsea in January when they beat them 4-0 at The Vitality Stadium. That was Bournemouth's last home win.

An entertaining game is in prospect with Bournemouth's top scorer Callum Wilson hoping to be fed chances by busy wingman Ryan Fraser and skilled 21 year old midfielder David Brooks. Spurs will be hoping to take advantage of Bournemoith's obvious frailties at the back. I'm going for a 2-0 away win, and hoping that Spurs can wrap up that Champions League place for next season. Those attending will need to wrap up, as cool weather is forecast, even on the South coast!

Match referee Craig Pawson has been in charge of four Spurs games this season. All four have been away (Man utd, Huddersfield, Leicester, Fulham), and all have been won! Number five would be most welcome ref!

"It was Twenty Years ago today!" - On May 5th 1999, Spurs lost at home to Arsenal.
