101 Great Goals’ prediction: Southampton 0-3 Tottenham
Tottenham have been in scintillating form in front of goal of late, with both Harry Kane and Heung-min Son forming a lethal duo.
Meanwhile, Mauricio Pellegrino finds himself under immense pressure following his sides’ dismal run of form, so a visit from a red-hot Spurs is far from ideal.
The Saints right now are in a very vulnerable position and with Kane looking to add his 100th Premier League goal, this could prove to be a long afternoon for the St Mary’s faithful.

Southampton vs Tottenham preview
It’s been a really tricky spell for Mauricio Pellegrino and his Saints side recently, as they are without a win in 10 and have slipped to within just one point of the bottom three.
The Argentine is now teetering on the point of losing his job, as he faces a tough task of turning Southampton’s fortunes around.
Tottenham, meanwhile, have been improving gradually as a disappointing draw with West Ham was followed up with an emphatic 4-0 win over Everton.
A man, along with Harry Kane, finally and rightfully getting the plaudits for Spurs is Heung-min Son who has managed a combined total of six goals and assists in just his last four appearances.
The last time these two sides met on Boxing Day, Kane ran riot netting a hat-trick and ending 2017 with a record 39 Premier League goals in a 5-2 win.
Southampton: Pellegrino pressure
The Saints enter Sunday’s clash just one point above the bottom three, having gone 10 Premier league games without a win.
For a club like Southampton, this is far from what they expect and subsequently, Pellegrino’s future is on the line.
The Argentine is likely to be given more games, after Spurs, to sort out this unstable position, but another defeat on Sunday could spell real trouble for the 46-year-old.Claim a £100 bet on Southampton vs Tottenham with Royal Panda
Tottenham: Kane 100 club
Another Premier League milestone is up for grabs on Sunday for Kane, as the Spurs talisman goes in search of his 100th goal.
Kane has his eyes firmly fixed on Alan Sherer’s record of 260 Premier League goals, having taken his calendar year record last time out against Southampton.
Unfortunately, for Pellegrino and Southampton, Tottenham’s number 10 appears to be incredibly motivated by breaking records and reaching landmarks, with another in his sights on Sunday.
