Tottenham vs Southampton Preview

Coming on the back of an imperious 2-0 victory over Premier League champions Manchester City, the home side will be buzzing to secure another win in front of the home crowd. For that, they will need all hands-on deck as they look to see off this resilient Southampton side.

They seemed a totally different side on the last match-day as Jose Mourinho inspired his side to a rather shocking victory over the Citizens. Now, they are just four points shy of fourth-placed Chelsea and Champions League qualification has never looked more realistic for Spurs.

Following a frantic 1-1 encounter at the St. Mary’s Stadium few weeks ago, Tottenham will be looking to get this tie over with once and for all in this replay game, with a comfortable victory over Ralph Hasenhuttl’s charges.

Tottenham vs Southampton Team News

The first leg of this game saw Southampton hold Jose Mourinho’s men to a one-all draw at the St. Mary’s Stadium with the home supporters lauding their side for the impressive result. However, it appears they only succeeded in deferring an inevitable defeat at the hands of Spurs.

With Tottenham heading for victory in the initial fixture, they were pegged back very late in the game via an 87th minute well-taken goal from the hosts. Davinson Sanchez and co. will be kicking themselves for allowing that one creep into the back of the net.

Now, the Lilywhites have been forced into an unwanted replay game just before the winter break. Given these cluster of players will not be returning to Premier League action in more than a week, both sides are likely to give their all, in a bid to clinch the win.

It was pretty abysmal for the Tottenham board to lay off Mauricio Pochettino – a manager who led them to the Champions League final few months ago. His axing just proved once again that football can be a really unfair game.

Newly-appointed manager Jose Mourinho bringing some sort of balance to this side, the Tottenham Hotspur board couldn’t care less about the sack to their former Argentine gaffer. In fact, they will believe they made the right choice in laying him off.

Southampton, on the other hand, have steadied the ship following a disastrous start to their Premier League campaign. A team once dubbed the worst team in the competition, the Saints are currently spotting an impressive run of form since their dismal December.

Ralph Hasenhuttl deserves lots of plaudits for his proper handling of the team despite coming in for some serious scrutiny earlier in the campaign.

As at now, both teams are on song and have found no difficulty in consistently scoring goals. Goals have been so easy for both sides to come by recently. As such, we might be in for a goal-fest in this crunch FA Cup clash at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium.
