Dimitar Berbatov is backing Tottenham Hotspur to ease to a straightforward win against Bournemouth at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium on Saturday.

Spurs manager Jose Mourinho will be eager to extend his winning start his reign after the Portuguese head coach was appointed as Mauricio Pochettino’s successor earlier this month.

Tottenham started their new era under the former Chelsea FC and Manchester United manager with a win last weekend following a 3-2 victory over West Ham United at the London Stadium.

The Lilywhites came from 2-0 down to rescue a 4-2 victory over Greek side Olympiakos on Tuesday night to keep their hopes of securing a last-16 spot alive.

Bournemouth have only managed to win one of their last six league games, losing three times and drawing twice.

Former Spurs striker Berbatov is backing Tottenham to secure a 2-1 win against Bournemouth on Saturday afternoon.

“Bournemouth aren’t doing bad, despite their past couple of results they are still 11th in the Premier League but Spurs need to start looking up the table,” Berbatov told Betfair.

“The players will be high on adrenaline, motivation and coming from two wins they will be full of confidence, so I expect them to win this one. I just hope that they perform right the way through the game and don’t have any lapses in concentration.”

Tottenham have won all four of their Premier League home games against Bournemouth, scoring 13 goals in the process without reply.

Spurs are looking to secure back-to-back Premier League victories for the first time this season when they host the Cherries on Saturday.

Bournemouth, meanwhile, are looking to avoid losing three Premier League games in a row for the first time in nearly 12 months.

Spurs are in tenth position and nine points behind Chelsea FC in fourth.
