Michael Owen has predicted on Betvictor that Tottenham Hotspur will win against Bournemouth on Thursday evening.
The former Liverpool and Manchester United striker has backed Spurs to pick up all three points from the Premier League game at the Vitality Stadium.
Owen believes that everyone at the club will be delighted to see the back of the season, and he has also pointed out that one bright spot for Spurs is the return to full fitness and action of star striker Harry Kane.
Owen wrote on Betvictor: “Tottenham continue their inconsistent form and I can’t help but feel everyone at the club will be delighted to see the back of this season.
“Jose Mourinho will be looking to re-group and hopefully for his team to start next season in a more positive manner than they are finishing this one. One bright spot for Tottenham fans is that Harry Kane is back fit and scoring goals again.
“As much as I am hesitant to back Spurs given their inconsistencies, I would prefer to take another chance on them rather than back the Cherries who are extremely consistent albeit by getting beat every week at the moment.”
According to WhoScored, Kane has scored 13 goals and provided two assists in 24 Premier League games for Tottenham so far this season.
During the 2018-19 campaign, the 26-year-old England international striker scored 17 goals and provided four assists in 28 league matches for Spurs, according to WhoScored.
With Bournemouth second from bottom in the Premier League table at the moment, Spurs will head into the match against the Cherries as favourites and should be able to pick up all three points from the encounter.
Spurs still have a slim chance of making it into the top four of the Premier League table this season.
