Both sides are keen to extend their good run in the Premier League when they face off on Wednesday Evening.
Southampton come into this game having defeated Bournemouth 3-1 away from home in their previous fixture, extending their unbeaten run to three games. This was only their second win away from home this season and their first win away from home in 6 games. Their home form however is significantly better than their home form with them picking up 4 wins at home in their last 6. In the 2 they didn’t win, only 1 was a loss, this came at the hands of Chelsea in a 2-0 defeat, the other was a draw which came at the hands of Liverpool in a 0-0 draw.
Tottenham on the other hand come into this match off of a 2 game winning streak with both wins coming at their home of White Hart Lane. However their away form is quite the opposite of their form of home, they lost their last 2 games away from home and they are without a win in their last 5 away from home. However their last two defeats away from home did come against the likes of Manchester United and Chelsea.
Spurs currently find themselves at 5th place in the Premier League table with 33 points to their name after 17 games and Southampton find themselves trailing behind Spurs in 8th place with 24 points to their name.
Genuinely when it comes to the matches between Spurs and Southampton it culminates in a Spurs victory with Spurs winning 6 out of their last 7 matches against the Saints. However in the previous time these two teams met Southampton came out winners with a 2-1 victory. The last time Spurs travelled to Southampton they beat them 2-0 at St Mary’s.
Prediction: I think that Spurs should come away with a victory from this fixture, with Southampton fighting back to show that they too mean business in the match. This fixture should be a multiple goal clash between the two sides providing a great deal of entertainment for the two fans. 3-1 Spurs.
