Tottenham play hosts to Southampton at White Hart Lane in the Premier League early kick-off on Sunday, as the home side look to finish the campaign as runners-up in the top-flight.

Tottenham’s dreams of winning the Premier League title ended on Monday night, as they drew 2-2 at reigning champions Chelsea. Mauricio Pochettino’s side took a two goal first half lead through goals from Harry Kane and Heung-Min Son.

Chelsea hit back in the second half courtesy of Gary Cahill and Eden Hazard. The draw meant that the north London side can no longer catch leaders Leicester City at the top of the Premier League table.

Spurs are now just three points clear of arch-rivals Arsenal, who are third in the table, so Pochettino’s side will be desperate to cement second place in this clash.

Tottenham striker Kane has now scored 25 Premier League goals this season and will be hoping to add to that tally in the race for the Premier League golden boot.

Southampton recorded a 4-2 victory over Manchester City last time out, with Senegalese international Sadio Mane scoring a hat-trick and Republic of Ireland star Shane Long also getting on the scoresheet. Young striker Kelechi Iheanacho scored both of City’s goals.

The result leaves Ronald Koeman’s team in seventh place and well in touch of a possible top-six finish this season.

Facts And Figures

These two teams have met 33 times in the Premier League, with Tottenham recording 17 victories, while Southampton have won ten times and six games have been drawn.

Tottenham have dominated the 16 Premier League meetings at White Hart Lane, winning 12 times, while two games have been drawn and Southampton have won twice.

Southampton have won just two of the last ten meetings against Spurs in all competitions, with the north London side winning six of the last seven meetings against the Saints.

Tottenham are unbeaten in eight Premier League games, but four of those games have resulted in draws. Spurs have also lost just twice at White Hart Lane this season in the top-flight.

Southampton have lost just one of their last eight Premier League games.

Team Selection And News

The home side will head into this game without suspended midfielder Dele Alli, while full-back Danny Rose, centre-back Toby Alderweireld and midfielder Nabil Bentaleb are also doubts for the clash. Kevin Wimmer could replace Alderweireld, while Ben Davies may start in Rose’s stead.

Southampton finally have a fully-fit squad to choose from, but Dutch boss Koeman is likely to name an unchanged starting line-up to last time out.

Possible Tottenham Team Selection

Lloris, Walker, Wimmer, Vertonghen, Davies, Dier, Dembele, Son, Eriksen, Lamela, Kane

Possible Southampton Team Selection

Forster, Martina, Fonte, Van Dijk, Bertrand, Clasie, Wanyama, Mane, Davis Tadic, Long

Match Prediction

Southampton have been in decent form of late and Spurs will be hurting from not recording the win they needed against Chelsea. However, Spurs will be determined not to let Arsenal overtake them in the table and should have enough to win this game.
