Tottenham Hotspur vs Southampton – Prediction, Odds and Betting Tips
After three crucial games in a row, Tottenham can now somehow relax and face a much weaker opponent, Southampton, Wednesday, on Wembley. However, the Saints have scored four goals in their last two Premier League games and could represent a problem if Pochettino’s men enter the pitch too relaxed. Last season, the Spurs won 5-2 at home and got a draw on the road, 1-1. Therefore, we must admit that we fancy the hosts for this one.
The Spurs have had some tough 10 days, playing Chelsea, Inter and then Arsenal. The first two opponents were defeated by Pochettino’s men, but when Tottenham went to Emirates to play the Gunners, it was obvious that the team is out of steam.
Aubameyang opened the score for the hosts from the penalty spot after just 10 minutes, but Tottenham had five dream minutes, taking control over the game. First, Dier brought the equalizer in the 30th minute, and afterward, Kane made it 2-1 from another penalty awarded by Mike Dean.
The visitors dominated the first 10 minutes of the second half, but it was Arsenal the one to hit first. Aubameyang caught a sensational shot from outside the box and it was 2-2. Lacazette and Torreira scored in the 74th and 77th minute and it became clear that Arsenal is going to win this north-London derby. Vertonghen received a second yellow card in the 85th minute and was eliminated.
With Sanchez injured and Vertonghen suspended, Alderweireld will recover his spot in the starting line-up. Dembele, Wanyama and Trippier and out injured. However, the last one has some decent chances to recover before the duel with Southampton.
Line-up Tottenham Hotspur
- Goalkeeper: Hugo Lloris
- Backfield: Ben Davies, Juan Foyth, Toby Alderweireld, Kieran Trippier
- Midfield: Dele Alli, Eric Dier, Christian Eriksen, Lucas Moura, Moussa Sissoko
- Forwards: Harry Kane
The Saints stand 18th in the Premier League rankings, with 9 points, 12-26 aggregate. At least Southampton got rid of the “one of the most boring teams” status. After a 2-3 defeat at Fulham, came another game last weekend where the Saints scored two goals. A home draw against Manchester United, 2-2, but it felt like Hughes’ men could have gone for a much better result.
After just 13 minutes, Armstrong his third consecutive goal for Southampton, and Cedric Soares didn’t wait too long to make it 2-0, just seven minutes later. But United proved its class and got back on the scoreboard before the halftime whistle. First, Lukaku scored from a Rashford assist in the 33rd minute, while in the 39th minute it was Herrera’s turn to find the net. Southampton played better in the second half, but neither side managed to score the winning goal.
On the road, the Saints have conceded 16 goals in 7 matches (six were at Manchester City).
Ings, Bertrand, and Long are injured, while Lemina is once again suspended.
- Goalkeeper: McCarthy
- Backfield: Yann Valery, Jannik Vestergaard, Jack Stephens, Wesley Hoedt, Cedric Soares
- Midfield: Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg, Steven Davis, Stuart Armstrong
- Forwards: Nathan Redmond, Manolo Gabbiadini
