Southampton enjoyed a stellar 2019/20 season, playing some interesting football all through. While at it, there were positive results to show for it, as the Saints amassed a whopping 52 points from 38 games to finish eleventh on the log.

Meanwhile, Tottenham had a campaign to forget last term and will be looking to put their previous woes behind them as soon as possible. Expect a strong showing from Mourinho’s men as they go all out for their first win of the juvenile season.

Southampton vs Tottenham Team News

One of the better sides in the Premier League over the last few years, Southampton are not ones to be treated with a wave of the side. Boasting of a couple of brilliant players in their ranks, Soton are very capable of mounting a top-half challenge this season.

Having enjoyed a pretty decent campaign last term, the Saints will be encouraged to go for greater successes this time around. Sadly, they are currently not on the right path as they have begun the new campaign in mediocre fashion.

Taking on Crystal Palace in their opening fixture, Southampton were touted by the bookmakers as favorites to nick home the victory. Unfortunately, Hasenhuttl’s men capitulated at the hands of the Eagles, losing by the narrowest of margins.

Even though they were the better side throughout the game, Soton struggled to find a route through the opposition’s defense. Ultimately, they were punished for their profligacy – Palace’s Wilfred Zaha putting the ball in the net to secure all three points.

Looking to move on from the shocking loss, the Saints played host to Brentford in an EFL second round fixture, but were yet dealt another major blow. The visitors hit two unanswered goals past McCarthy in goal, to send Southampton crashing from the competition.

As young as the season is, Southampton are already creeping into crisis mode. With a game against Tottenham beckoning, Hasenhuttl’s charges will be desperate to get some positive result on board. Staging an upset against this Spurs side will be difficult.

But if Everton can manage to do it, why not Southampton? Tottenham began their new campaign with a home game against Everton on the last matchday. To be honest, Spurs were totally out-of-sorts, struggling to get into their rhythm.

With no real cutting-edge in attack, watching Spurs play was difficult. Mourinho has managed to turn the Lilywhites into a defensive outfit in less than a year! A moment of brilliance from the Toffees’ Calvert-Lewin was all it took to send Tottenham sinking on the day.

Still yet to score their first points of season, Mourinho’s charges will be gunning for nothing but victory in this fixture. Spurs will need the likes of Son and Kane in tip-top form to help salvage those much-needed three points here.

Southampton vs Tottenham Predictions

Tottenham were in action a few days ago in the Europa League, managing to squeeze out a narrow 2-1 win over Lokomotiv Plovdiv. With Mourinho fielding his strongest XI, he is likely going to have tired legs for this weekend’s fixture. We expect Southampton to take advantage of Spurs’ fatigued team to grind out a result here. A double chance backing the hosts for victory looks in order.
