In the midst of what is a stacked schedule over the next month, Tottenham will turn their attention back to Premier League duties when they travel to an empty St. Mary’s on Sunday lunchtime.

While Spurs might have just about managed to avoid what would have been a stunning European upset away at Bulgarian outfit Lokomotiv Plovdiv in midweek, they opened the New Year with a 1-0 defeat at home against Everton and their form has left allot to the imagination.

On the flip side, crashing out of the EFL Cup at the hands of Championship outfit Brentford on home soil earlier in the week, Southampton are a side who have also missed the chance to lay down an early marker.

Opening the 2020/2021 campaign with a sluggish 1-0 defeat away at Crystal Palace last weekend, you might be interested to know that the Saints and Spurs have a reputation for producing lively encounters.

With nine of the last 10 matchups between the two sides ending with both teams finding the net, a similar outcome on Sunday lunchtime can be found priced at 3/4 with William Hill.

Betting Tip: Under 2.5 goals – 10/11 @ Ladbrokes

Saints smelling an upset?

While Southampton might have gained a string of admirers after what was an eye-catching end to the extended 2019/2020 campaign, few would have expected what has been a worrying start for the Saints this time around.

Despite fielding arguably their strongest XI against Championship outfit Brentford on Wednesday, they could only slump to a 2-0 defeat on home soil and have opened the New Year with back-to-back losses.

Although Head Coach Ralph Hasenhüttl might be demanding his side re-find their clinical edge in the final third, the South Coast outfit should be boosted by their eye-catching record against Spurs while at St. Mary’s.

Collecting seven points over the last three times they have hosted Tottenham on home soil while on Premier League duties, the former RB Leipzig boss knows that his side are unbeaten in each of their previous four showdowns against Sunday’s guests at St. Mary’s.

You might be interested to know that a Southampton draw no bet this weekend can be found priced at 6/5 with Coral.

Tottenham limp on

Having to come from behind to snatch a last-gasp 2-1 victory away at a nine-man Lokomotiv Plovdiv on Thursday evening, Tottenham have really failed to find their feet since making a return to action.

With what is an extremely testing schedule over the next month that could see them play nine games in the space of 21 days, Jose Mourinho’s side could only open their Premier League campaign with a shock 1-0 defeat at home against a new-look Everton.

Although Harry Kane might have managed to convert from the spot out in Bulgaria earlier in the week, Spurs do have a reputation for their issues in front of goal and many have been vocal about Mourinho’s defensive approach.

Remarkably, despite just about managing to scrape a sixth-place finish at the final hour last season, Tottenham could only muster a pair of victories in their final 10 Premier League contests outside of North London.

You might be interested to know, with Spurs failing to bag more than a single strike in five of their last six top-flight matchups on the road, they can be found priced at 8/13 with Unibet to once again land under 1.5 goals this weekend.
