Bournemouth vs Tottenham teams: Spurs make three changes as Mauricio Pochettino names strong XI

The trio replace Jan Vertonghen, Victor Wanyama, and Fernando Llorente at the Vitality Stadium as manager Mauricio Pochettino aims to tie up a top four spot today.

A win will give them Champions League qualification and allow them to go all out on Wednesday in Amsterdam, knowing their last match of the season, against Everton, won’t have anything riding on it.

Bournemouth, meanwhile, have opted to star Mark Travers in goal, while Jordon Ibe also makes a first-team return.

Ex-Spurs right-back Adam Smith is fit enough to start too.

 

AFC Bournemouth: Travers, Clyne, Steve Cook, Simpson, Smith, Ibe, Lerma, Ake, Fraser, King, Wilson.

Subs: Boruc, Mousset, Hyndman, Taylor, Mepham, Surridge, Ofoborh.
Tottenham Hotspur: Lloris, Trippier, Sanchez, Alderweireld, Rose, Dier, Sissoko, Alli, Eriksen, Son, Lucas Moura.

Subs: Janssen, Wanyama, Llorente, Foyth, Gazzaniga, Davies, Skipp.

Referee: Craig Pawson (South Yorkshire)
