SOU vs TOT Team News:

SOU:

  • With Maya Yoshida ruled out, Jack Stephens should continue at the heart of the defence alongside Wesley Hoedt.
  • Charlie Austin is also sidelined for the hosts, though Mauricio Pellegrino has no further injury issues ahead of the welcome of Tottenham.
  • The Saints boss may revert to a 4-3-3 formation to bulk out the midfield, with Mario Lemina potentially coming into the fold.

 

TOT:

  • Toby Alderweireld is back in training, but is some way from a first team return for Tottenham.
  • Danny Rose and Harry Winks are sidelined for the visitors with respective knee and ankle knocks.
  • Head coach Mauricio Pochettino could name the same XI that started the 4-0 win over Everton, though Hugo Lloris is a doubt through illness for the away side.

 

 

SOU vs TOT Probable XI:

SOU:

McCarthy (GK), Bertrand, Hoedt, Stephens, Soares, Lemina, Romeu, Hojberg, Tadic, Long, Ward-Prowse

TOT:

Lloris(GK), Aurier, Sanchez, Vertonghen, Davies, Dembele, Dier, Heung Min, Alli, Eriksen, Kane

 

Key players:

Kane (TOT)

Eriksen (TOT)

Vertonghen (TOT)

Heung-Min (TOT)

Long (SOU)

Ward-Prowse (SOU)

 

Expected Winner:

The away team is most likely to win this match because statistically they are the better team and the form Harry Kane is in lately, it is believed that he will take his team over the line in the end. If we go by history, Tottenham has won 9 out of 11 matches they have encountered Southampton in all competitions. Moreover the home team has failed to register a single win in their last ten matches in all competitons.
