Match Preview : Southampton vs Tottenham

Wednesday, December 28th, 2016

A win over Bournemouth at the weekend means Southampton have lost only one of their last six Premier League games. Claude Puel’s side have lost just once on home turf in England’s top tier this term as they look to haul themselves closer to Manchester United.

Victory at Burnley’s expense means Tottenham have won three of their last four as they look to get back on track in the race to secure a top-4 finish.

Spurs have lost just one of their last six league meetings with Saints and haven’t lost at St. Mary’s since the south coast side’s return to the Premier League.

While Spurs’ good record in Southampton is likely to continue, a draw is on the cards.

Southampton – Jeremy Pied, Matt Targett, Jake Hesketh and Charlie Austin are all ruled out for Southampton.
