Harry Redknapp predicts Tottenham v Bournemouth
Harry Redknapp looks ahead to Tottenham's home clash with Bournemouth on Saturday afternoon
Harry Redknapp is backing Tottenham Hotspur to claim a home victory against Bournemouth in their Premier League clash at home on Saturday.
The Lilywhites are currently getting used to life under their new manager after Jose Mourinho was brought in as Mauricio Pochettino’s successor at the north London club last week.
Tottenham currently find themselves down in 10th place in the Premier League table but they have made a winning start under their new boss with victories over West Ham United and Olympiakos.
They will now be hoping to make it back to back wins in the Premier League as Mourinho looks to steer Spurs up the Premier League table as the hectic festive period in the Premier League approaches.
Former Spurs boss Redknapp has been impressed by what he has seen from Tottenham under Mourinho in recent days and he is tipping the Lilywhites to claim all three points this weekend.
Writing in his column for BetVictor, Redknapp said: “Jose Mourinho is back in management and overseeing his opening games as the new Tottenham gaffer has certainly lifted spirits in North London.
“Spurs ran out cosy 3-2 winners over capital rivals West Ham last weekend and a rousing 4-2 success, after trailing 2-0, against Olympiakos on home soil in the Champions League on Tuesday saw them progress to the next round.
“Tottenham look to be playing with a freedom and creating plenty of chances, so fans can look forward to an exciting second half of the season.
“They have a good chance of completing a quick hat trick of victories when Bournemouth are the visitors this Saturday.”
The Cherries may only be a point and place below but have suffered back to back PL defeats and are finding goals difficult to come by, having bagged just three times in their last six appearances.
Tottenham will feel they are very much back in the hunt for a top-four place and can win this and close the gap even further.
Spurs will return to Premier League action on Wednesday night when they take on Mourinho’s old club Manchester United in the Premier League next week at Old Trafford.
Mourinho’s main target this season will be to steer Spurs back into contention for a top-four finish and Champions League qualification.
