Tottenham Hotspur will lock horns with Bournemouth on Boxing Day after demolishing Everton at Goodison Park on Sunday.

The Lilywhites thumped Marco Silva’s Everton 6-2 to go third in the table, six points off league leaders, Liverpool. So Mauricio Pochettino’s Tottenham Hotspur side will be keen to pick up all three points on Wednesday in order to keep the five-point gap between themselves and London rivals – Chelsea and Arsenal.

Bournemouth, meanwhile, head into the game placed eighth in the league table.

Dele Alli was taken off at half-time at Everton after he felt a little bit tired. However, he should start this game. Moussa Sissoko sustained a knock at Goodison Park but he should recover in time.

Meanwhile, the likes of Eric Dier, Jan Vertonghen, Mousa Dembele, Victor Wanyama and Vincent Janssen remain out.
