Jose Mourinho will be conscious of the north London derby this weekend with Mikel Arteta’s rebuild at Arsenal seemingly further down the road than the Portuguese’s own.
Here is how you can watch the game on television or on a live stream.

The match will begin at 6pm on Thursday 9 July at the Vitality Stadium.
How can I watch it online and on TV?

What is the team news?
Charlie Daniels, Simon Francis and Jack Stacey are all out, while Chris Mepham (knee), Steve Cook (hamstring) and Jack Simpson (calf) are doubtful for the Cherries too. Callum Wilson returns from a two-match ban.
Giovani Lo Celso could be rested after completing the 90 minutes in three successive games. Eric Dier has been handed a four-game ban, while Juan Foyth and Japhet Tanganga remain out.

What are the odds?
It wasn’t pretty last time out as Spurs edged past Everton, but Jose Mourinho’s side know results are all that matters at this stage of the season. While Bournemouth will hope to cause an upset to bring to life their bid to beat the drop, their form has shown no signs of changing, while Spurs have enough quality to cope here, despite the importance of Arsenal this weekend. We’ll opt for a 2-0 away win as Spurs heap more misery on the Cherries.
