After their strong performance away from home in their last Premier League match, Southampton will be looking to put in another solid performance when they host Tottenham at St. Mary’s Stadium in the 18th round of the English top flight.
The hosts have been in a really good form in recent weeks. Southampton managed to lose only one game in their last 5 fixtures in the Premier League. They have collected 10 points from a possible 15 in that same period. Their last game was against Bournemouth away from home in a game that finished 3-1 to the visitors.
Southampton are sitting in 8th place in the Premier League table with 24 points from 6 wins, 6 draws and 5 losses. They have scored 17 goals and conceded 16 since the start of the season.
Florin Gardos is still some way short of match fitness and is ruled out here, while Alex McCarthy is a doubt. Jose Fonte and Steven Davis could come into the side that secured a 3-1 win at Bournemouth on Sunday.
Tottenham have been relatively in trouble in recent weeks. The well known solid Spurs side have seemed a bit shaky in recent games as the side have dropped a valuable 6 points in their last 5 league games. Their last game was against Burnley at home where they collected all three points with a 2-1 victory.
Spurs are sitting in 5th place in the league table with 33 points from 9 wins, 6 draws and 5 losses. They have scored 29 goals and conceded 12 since the start of the campaign.
Mauricio Pochettino could name a similar looking XI to the one that overcame Burnley at the weekend, though Moussa Sissoko, Heung-min Son and Eric Dier are all pushing for starts.
