Southampton vs Tottenham Prediction

Southampton vs Tottenham PredictionSouthampton vs Tottenham Prediction

The Sunday action from the Premier League (PL) will finish off with a match between two teams that going into this round of games are indifferent, but equally precarious positions just outside the relegation and the Champions League spots, respectively.
This season is turning out to be a nightmare for many of the Southampton faithful. The club finally gave in to ‘bigger money’ and let their best defender leave for Liverpool (Virgil van Dijk), and find themselves lacking on several fronts on the pitch: the team has not won once in their last ten PL games!
Tottenham is, together with Liverpool, the league’s in-form outfit and have gained points on Chelsea and Manchester United in recent weeks as well as pulling five points clear of their eternal enemies Arsenal. If they are to further climb, they will need all three points here.
Son Heung-min has one explanation as to why the team is in great form – they’re striving to be like Harry Kane! He recently said: “I want more, like Harry Kane. He beats every record and I want to beat every record as well. I want to try to be a top player”.
Players to watch: Hurricane Kane needs no introduction. With 20 PL goals to his name already, Kane is aiming for yet another top scorer title.
With Charlie Austin still out injured, Southampton fans will hope that Shane Long can rediscover his goalscoring form – and fast. Besides Austin, no Southampton player has more than three goals this season!
Stat attack: Since 2012, Tottenham have won four out of five games at St. Mary’s, scoring two goals or more on each of the five (one draw). In total, Southampton has only won one of the last ten head to head matches.
1-2? Tottenham average precisely 2.0 goals scored per game this season, Southampton precisely 1.0.

Our Prediction Tottenham to win 2-0
