Southampton vs Tottenham: Prediction, kick off time, TV, live stream, team news, results h2h, odds – preview
Antonio Conte’s side hold a one-point lead over Newcastle after Eddie Howe’s side picked up a late winner against Nottingham Forest on Friday.
It was Forest who gave Spurs the perfect platform to secure a much-needed victory last week. So poor for most of the first half, Spurs recovered from a difficult week to breathe new life into their Champions League challenge.
The Saints, meanwhile, are fighting for their lives at the bottom of the division. Although it’s been a dreadful season, they have at least collected some points against Chelsea and Manchester United lately which should serve as a warning to their visitors.

Southampton vs Tottenham Team News
Saints boss Ruben Selles has confirmed that former Spurs defender Kyle Walker-Peters needs a fitness test after picking up a knock in their loss to Brentford. Ainsley Maitland-Niles is also believed not to be fully fit, meaning James Bree looks most likely to start at right-back.
For Spurs, few changes are expected. Ivan Perisic could replace Ben Davies and Emerson Royal is back in light training, although Conte is unlikely to tinker too much.
Southampton vs Tottenham Prediction
Spurs have to win this. The Saints may tend to improve their game when playing against the biggest teams in the division, but anything other than three points would be a disaster for Conte.
Tottenham won 2-1.
