It is a busy week of football action and the Premier League grind rolls on Wednesday night with a great looking clash of Southampton v Tottenham. While the two clubs have had an extended Christmas break, it is down to business on the south coast on Wednesday when the two meet.
Tottenham saw Manchester United draw level on points with them on Boxing Day, so fifth placed Spurs need to land a win to put some daylight between themselves and the Red Devils again.
As for Southampton, they will be going into the game sat in eighth in the Premier League and a distant nine points behind 5th placed Spurs. So a big three points is up for grabs for the home side to try and claw them way just a little bit closer to the top six. This is not an easy game for them though. This is of course, a return to St Mary’s for Tottenham boss Mauricio Pochettino, who left the the south coast side to take over at White Hart Lane. Will he be able to get one over on his former club?
Spurs have won four of their last six league matches now, two of the last three coming with a clean sheet in tow. They know that they will get a tough game at St Mary’s, as Southampton are a tough home side to crack. However, Tottenham are actually unbeaten in their last four trips to the south coast to take on the Saints, winning three of those four games, so they have the current head to head form running in this fixture.
It may be a test of patience for the Lilywhites, as Southampton have not conceded a league goal at home for five hours and five minutes of action, but Spurs are only one of two sides in the top flight this season to have produced over 1000 shots on target in this season’s campaign. Will the LIlywhites be able to call on their exciting craft to open up the tough Southampton defence and land themselves and important three points?
