Tottenham and Southampton set for a cracker in the capital

Tottenham and Southampton lock horns at White Hart Lane on Sunday afternoon in what promises to be an entertaining encounter. Spurs head into the weekend 2nd in the Premier League, but with both Man City and Liverpool only one point behind, and Arsenal a further five points adrift, Mauricio Pochettino will be looking for his troops to strengthen their position in the top-4, although things are unlikely to be straightforward against a rejuvenated Southampton side.

  • Tottenham have collected a league high 38 points on home soil (W12 D2).
  • Spurs have won 7 of the last 9 clashes with Saints.
  • Southampton have scored 4 goals in each of their last two away games.
  • There’s been 25 goals in the last 7 meetings between the teams.

Home comforts for Tottenham

Tottenham have been superb on home soil this season, bagging 38 points from a possible 42 in front of their own fans. On Sunday Spurs will be gunning to record their 10th successive league win at White Hart Lane, as they bid to put daylight between themselves and their top-4 rivals.

Tottenham can bank on a decent record against the Saints, having been victorious in seven of the last nine clashes - losing only once - and they are a best-priced 8/11 (Bet365) to grab another victory this weekend, while their opponents are out at 9/2, with a draw available at 3/1.

Spurs may be hindered by the absence of star man Harry Kane, the league’s top-scorer with 19 goals, however Son Heung-Min, who has found the back of the net in his last two appearances against the Saints, bagged a hat-trick in Spurs’ 6-0 hammering off Millwall, and can be backed at 13/8 to score against the Saints, and 9/2 to break the deadlock (both Sky Bet).

Under/Over Goals Market

Free-scoring Saints ready to roll

Southampton’s problems in-front of goal were plain for all to see in January when they failed to score in four of their five matches in all competitions. However, the now sizzling Saints have since found the back of the net in each of their last six games, bagging 10 in their last three alone, including 4 in both of their last outings on the road.

A major reason for this sudden transformation is Manolo Gabbiadini who has enjoyed a stunning start to life in England, scoring in each of his four games to date (six goals in total), including a brace in two matches, and the Italian striker will no doubt be a popular bet at 7/1 (Bet Victor) to score first, 13/5 to net anytime, and even 16/1 to bag two or more.

Southampton have only won one of the last nine clashes between the teams, although that did come in their last visit to the Lane - a 2-1 victory back in May. A repeat 2-1 scoreline can be found at 15/2, while the Saints are out at 45/1 (Coral) to score 4+ goals for the third away game in a row, although it’s worth noting that Spurs have only conceded 7 at home all season!

Tottenham tipped to edge high-scoring clash

There hasn’t been a goalless draw in 18 clashes dating back 16 years, and you can bank on a few goals on Sunday afternoon. Four of the last seven encounters have gone over 3.5 goals, including this season’s meeting (1-4 Tottenham), and we’re backing this particular outcome once again at 40/17 (UniBet), whereas a home win and over 3.5 goals is tempting at 4/1 (Paddy Power).

Kane is unquestionably a big loss for the hosts, but their superb home form combined with their impressive record against Southampton, means they are very difficult to look past, and in terms of a correct score Tottenham look tempting at 28/1 (Sky Bet) to concur Saints 3-2 for the third time in eight meetings, while they are priced at 13/5 to win by a one goal margin (13/5).
