Tottenham vs Southampton
Tottenham will host Southampton in the 15th round of England Premier League.
Tottenham are 5th in the table and still they stay close to Chelsea and Arsenal which teams are infront of them. In this round they have to face an opponent which is in the relegation zone(18th place) and also which changed the coach- Mark Hughes was replaced with Ralph Hasenhuttl. Maybe the change will reflect positively on the club and mostly on the players, we will see, but one thing is sure that the players have to give their best to prove themselves to the manager they deserve their place amongst the starting line-up.
Tottenham will miss for this game Jan Vertonghen, who is suspended and that's a big blow for their defensive strenght, while players like Lamela, Wanyama, Davinson Sanchez, Dembele and Janssen are all out because of injuries. Still they have good starting line-up, but the miss of Vertonghen will have an influence. It's expected Juan Foyth to start on his place.
Southampton will miss the suspended Mario Lemina, while Shane Long is injured. Ings, Targett, Bertrand and Obafemi are doubtful for the Saints.Stuart Armstrong is their top player in the recent weeks and he is the one to watch in the visitors team.
H2H these two teams very often make matches with goals in both nets. Last three home games of Tottenham against the Saints finished 1:2/2:1/5:2. We all know Tottenham are strong offensively, but have a tendency to receive also in their net. Without Vertonghen it would be even harder to keep a clean sheet. The visitors enter this game in positive mood after they made 2:2 draw against Mancheter United, but still the home factor and the quality difference have to influence on this game. Home win+ BTTS is my pick here, maybe 3:1 as a correct score.
