Dier, Kane and Dembele will be key for Tottenham against Bournemouth

Tottenham Hotspur and Bournemouth go head-to-head this weekend.

Tottenham Hotspur take on Bournemouth in their latest Premier League encounter this weekend and Mauricio Pochettino’s side will be hoping to get a win under their belts after drawing 0-0 with Liverpool last time out.

Here we take a look at three Tottenham players who will be key if the North London club are to come out on top on Sunday:

Mousa Dembele

Belgian international Mousa Dembele shone for Tottenham against Liverpool last week and the match against Bournemouth will go some way to showing if the 28-year-old is playing his way into consistent good form.

Having dominated against the Reds, this is the type of game he should be stamping his authority on, especially with Bournemouth likely to be a tough prospect in their own backyard.

Eric Dier

Eric Dier was suspended for the match against Liverpool but expect the England under-21 international to be back in the starting line-up a week on.

Bournemouth may have suffered injuries to a number of key players already this season but they have a tough core and Dier will have to be at his best to come out on top.

Harry Kane

Bournemouth were hammered 5-1 against Manchester City last time out and this could be the perfect opportunity to get over his goal-scoring woes if the hosts are similarly fragile at the back.

That is unlikely to be the case, with the Cherries likely to have worked on their back-line all week, meaning Kane will be even more important in finding the breakthrough.
