Tottenham To Be Too Good For Southampton On Boxing Day

It has been difficult to know what you are going to get from Tottenham Hotspur in the Premier League this season but recent history suggests that they should have too much quality for Southampton on Boxing Day...

  • Dele Alli has scored four goals in three appearances against Southampton
  • Tottenham have lost one of their past ten meetings with Southampton - Won Eight, Drawn One

Home And Away

Mauricio Pochettino's men were supposed to endure something of a hoodoo at Wembley Stadium but they have only lost once in the league at 'home' all season, winning five and drawing three, and Spurs are 1/3 favourites for Tuesday's lunchtime kick-off.

In contrast, Southampton have won only once on the road this term (drawn three, lost four) and they are 15/2 for a rare victory in this Tottenham v Southampton fixture.

Indeed, the Saints have won just once against Spurs since 2005, drawing one and losing eight meetings since.
Match Odds:

Spurs To Shine

Tottenham should be too good and we are going to back them to come out of the blocks quickly, with a half-time and full-time Tottenham win available at 23/20 with Coral.

That looks a decent bet as Saints have struggled against the better teams in the division, losing at Manchester City, Chelsea and Liverpool so far, and Tottenham should secure the three points.

The North London outfit are 11/4 to win with under 2.5 goals in the match (Boylesports) and that is a bet that has paid out in home wins over Brighton, Crystal Palace and Bournemouth so far, albeit Swansea and West Bromwich Albion have managed to nick low scoring draws in that time.

Tottenham tend to enjoy playing Southampton though and the out-of-sorts Dele Alli could return to form, with the midfielder notching in all three of his Premier League appearances against Saints. Alli has scored four goals against the South Coast outfit and he is 11/2 to be first goalscorer (Paddy Power).
