Tottenham News and Form – Can Spurs find winning touch against Southampton?

These are not easy times for Spurs. It is a W2 D2 L2 record that they have taken in the Premier League for this campaign. They suffered a 2-1 loss against Leicester last weekend, despite having taken a first-half lead through Harry Kane at the King Power. Before that, they had blown a 2-0 lead at Olympiacos in the Champions League to draw 2-2. Then on Tuesday, they were dumped out of the EFL Cup by Colchester via a penalty shootout.

Total Goals Exact 4


So naturally, boss Mauricio Pochettino has been frustrated. It has come across that way ever since the summer really when he said that he shouldn’t be called “manager” any more. Spurs have taken a w2 L1 record at home this season in the EPL. The two wins were over Aston Villa and Crystal Palace and Tottenham scored three and four goals respectively against those opponents. Tottenham have managed one clean sheet only in this season’s top flight. All but one of their games have gone over 2.5 goals. The Lilywhites have opened the scoring in half of their six games. Can they restore some confidence?

Southampton News and Form – Can Saints take advantage of Spurs’ slump?

It was a good three-match unbeaten streak of form that Southampton were on, which included a good point against Manchester United. But their undefeated run was snapped last weekend in a home defeat against Bournemouth. So that is what the Saints have to respond to. One thing in their favour is their away form. The two wins that Southampton have recorded this season have both been away from St Mary’s. It is a W2 L1 that the Saints have on the board.

Three of Southampton’s last four league games have gone under 2.5 goals and they have banked back-to-back clean sheets on their travels. That was in their victories at Brighton and Sheffield United. Southampton are on a five match scoring streak in the Premier League. All of their league goals this season, home and away, have been put on the scoreboard in the second half of games. Southampton have conceded the opening goal in four of their six games so have had to do a lot of chasing in fixtures.

Both teams to score YES at 4/5

Tottenham v Southampton Predictions

Tottenham to win: There is a temptation to back a spirited performance from Southampton to get the three points. But the betting head says to stick with the one form as Spurs have had two big home wins this season. The Saints will probably give them a good game, so it’s Tottenham to win by a one-goal margin.
