What is it?

Why, it's only the Premier League lunch-time kick off between Tottenham Hotspur and Bournemouth at White Hart Lane.

When is it?

Saturday April 15, 2017. 

What time is kick-off?

Referee Michael Oliver will get the match under way in north London with three sharp peeps of his whistle at 12.30pm (BST).

What TV channel is it on?

Sky Sports 1 will be broadcasting the match from 12.30pm following an hour-long preamble of lovely build-up. If, though, you have better things to do with your Easter Saturday than tuning in to the gogglebox, then why don't you follow all the news and action right here on whatever suitable electronic device takes your fancy?

What is the team news?

Harry Kane is expected to make his first start in almost five weeks on Saturday. Kane came off the bench against Watford last weekend and is pushing for a starting berth, while Victor Wanyama is expected to return after missing two matches with a back complaint.

Danny Rose (knee), Erik Lamela (hip) and Harry Winks (ankle) are all out. Goalkeeper Michel Vorm is struggling with a knee problem.

Provisional squad: Lloris, Vorm, Lopez, Davies, Alderweireld, Vertonghen, Dier, Carter-Vickers, Wimmer, Walker, Trippier, Wanyama, Dembele, Eriksen, Alli, Sissoko, Onomah, Son, Janssen, Kane.

Pick your Tottenham starting XI to face Bournemouth

Bournemouth midfielder Dan Gosling remains doubtful for the trip to White Hart Lane after suffering a setback to his recovery from a knee problem.

Defender Tyrone Mings is available again after serving out his five-match suspension for a stamp on Manchester United forward Zlatan Ibrahimovic, while winger Junior Stanislas could feature having been sidelined by a groin strain.

Midfielder Andrew Surman, though, may well be sidelined for the remainder of the campaign with a knee problem, while forward Callum Wilson, goalkeeper Adam Federici and defender Rhoys Wiggins all continue their recoveries from their own knee injuries.

Provisional squad: Boruc, A Smith, S Cook, Daniels, Francis, Pugh, Wilshere, Arter, Fraser, Afobe, King, Allsop, Ibe, Mousset, Gradel, B Smith, L Cook, Cargill, Mings, Stanislas, Gosling.

What are they saying?

"It's important for us to get the three points more than to put pressure on Chelsea. (We have) to keep our level, to win games for ourselves."
Tottenham Hotspur manager Mauricio Pochettino

 

"They have quality players, Harry Kane included. You want to play against their best players and see if you can deal with them."
Bournemouth manager Eddie Howe

What are the odds?

Tottenham Hotspur to win: 1/4
Draw: 5/1
Bournemouth to win: 11/1

What's Jonathan Liew's prediction?

A dangerous fixture for Tottenham, for all their scorching recent form. Bournemouth have avoided defeat at Old Trafford and Anfield in recent weeks, and are good at forcing errors with their aggressive press. Tottenham should have too much, but it could get jittery: anything less than victory, and the title is probably gone.
Score: 2-1.

Who do you think will win?
