Reason for Southampton vs Tottenham Predictions
Both clubs had good wins on Boxing Day. Southampton’s win at West Ham left them 14th in the Premier League, and they host fifth-placed Tottenham. The win at West Ham was a welcome one for Southampton, as it ended a run of six league games without a victory. They won 3-2 after losing three of their last four away league fixtures. Home form is better with no losses in five, through three have ended in draws. Those results haven’t come against the best in the Premier League, though, with the highest side faced being Leicester City. Alex McCarthy (Thigh Problems), Sam McQueen (Cruciate Ligament Rupture), and Fraser Forster (Unknown Injury) won’t be able to feature for Southampton gaffer Ralph Hasenhüttl. James Ward-Prowse plays well in the middle of the park, and he does not allow the opponent much action. Moussa Djenepo enjoys the pitch, and when he receives the ball and moves towards the goal, the opponent has problems.
Tottenham is fifth but in a good position for a top-four finish. They trail fourth-placed Arsenal by six points but have three games in hand. The visitors were in top form on Boxing Day with a 3-0 home win over Crystal Palace. The worrying sign for other teams in the Premier League is that both Kane and Son scored in that win. Tottenham have won four of their last five league games, the other being a 2-2 home draw with Liverpool. Away form is going to be a key to how high Tottenham can finish this season, as 16 league games have been played, but only six have been away matches. Three away league games have been lost with two wins. This is their first game on the road in the Premier League since November 7th. Tottenham Hotspur manager Antonio Conte has to choose from a squad that has some fitness concerns. Giovani Lo Celso (Knee Injury), Cristian Romero (Hamstring Injury), and Ryan Sessegnon (Muscle Injury) miss out here. Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg plays excellently and does not allow the opponent to play in the middle of the field. Min Son is the engine of this team, his greatest virtue is speed, and he has excellent ball control and can be satisfied with his performance.
It is going to be an exciting clash, as Southampton is not without a chance of remaining undefeated. However, we believe Tottenham should meet the expectations and deliver a win.
The prediction for this match is over 2.5 goals. We hope that football fans will enjoy this match.
