On Saturday night, St. Mary’s will be the host for a tough clash as Spurs visit The Saints on Matchday 28.

A loss against high-flying Brentford in the midweek by 2-0 sees The Saints succumb to their 17th defeat of the season. Stranded at the bottom of the table, Southampton picked up a precious point away at Old Trafford in their recent away venture. With much to look forward ahead in the relegation battle, things look ominous in this fixture as Southampton have picked up two wins out of their 10 Premier League home against Spurs (D3, L5) since their return to the Premier League back in 2012.

Tottenham Hotspur were back to winning ways against Nottingham Forest after a torrid set of fixtures. Getting knocked out against a resurgent AC Milan in the UEFA Champions League, a shocking exit against Sheffield United in the FA Cup has gloom in the dressing room with pressure creeping up on Conte. Though they still claim the 4th spot in the table, Newcastle United are breathing down their necks. But Spurs can go into this fixture with renewed hope as they have won 8 of their last 10 Premier League games at 3 pm on Saturday, losing the others against Leicester and Wolves this season.

Player to watch

Southampton: James Ward Prowse

Ward-Prowse is a technically gifted player with a vast passing range, vision, and the ability to play high-quality final balls to attackers. His incredible passing range has allowed him to develop a quarterback style. A great master of set pieces, he can turn a game on its head anytime.

Tottenham Hotspur: Son-Heung Min

His style of play is probably one of the most direct styles to have been ever seen. He likes to play simple passes and move towards the box and finish/cross it. He has scored 10 goals and has 3 assists in his name this season.

Match facts

  • Southampton have scored at least once in each of their last 14 Premier League against Spurs.
  • Tottenham are looking to complete the Premier League double over Southampton for the seventh time, something they have only done as against Manchester City (9), Aston Villa (7), and Everton (7).

Injury and team news

Ainsley Maitland Niles will be missing out on this fixture until a late fitness test might see him through to the game. Livramento will be missing out due to a muscular injury and his return date is unknown. El-Younoussi, Sulemana and Che Adams will be leading the front line with Ward Prowse and Diallo taking control of the midfield.

Rodrigo Bentancur is out for the season with a knee injury while Emerson was given a rest after the game against Milan. He is under scrutiny and it looks like Conte won’t be risking him. Hugo Lloris has been out for a while as Forster is going to take his place in the goal.

Tottenham Hotspur predicted lineup (3-4-2-1):

Forster; Romero, Dier, Lenglet; Porro, Skipp, Hojbjerg, Davies; Richarlison, Son; Kane


Tottenham Hotspur are certainly a better outfit when it comes to the class in their ranks but we can never count out a team who are striving hard to survive relegation.
