Paul Merson on who will come out on top between Tottenham and Bournemouth


Sky Sports football pundit Paul Merson has tipped Tottenham Hotspur to beat Bournemouth on Boxing Day.

Mauricio Pochettino’s side host Bournemouth after great performances against Barcelona, Arsenal and also the 6-2 demolition of Everton at the Goodison Park.

Bournemouth, on the other hand, is having a strong season and sit at the 8th position in the league table having defeated Brighton 2-0 in their last match, which was their first in the last 6 matches.

Merson believes Tottenham will defeat Bournemouth and again shut their doubter’s mouth to show they are in contention to win the Premier League title.

Merson told Sky Sports: “I expect Spurs to win this and if they do, they are still in the title hunt. This is a much easier game than Man City have, in my opinion, and before you know it, they can be challenges.

“So it is funny how it works, but I think Spurs will win this one as Bournemouth are a funny team – they lose six out of seven, then they win on Saturday and they are one of those teams that could now go and win six on the trot…

“Prediction: 3-0.”
