Southampton team news & predicted line-up vs Tottenham

Saints remain bottom of the Premier League table after a loss against Brentford last weekend but very much remain in with a chance of avoiding relegation despite the difficult home tie against Spurs on Saturday

Southampton Team News

  • Out: Juan Larios, Tino Livramento
  • Doubt: Ainsley Maitland-Niles, Kyle Walker-Peters

Rubén Sellés will remain without both Tino Livramento and Juan Larios as the pair continue to miss out for Saints on account of long-term injuries, and Sellés will now be made to sweat over Ainsley Maitland-Niles as well as former Spurs academy graduate Kyle Walker-Peters. Both versatile defenders face late assessments to gauge their availability this weekend.

Former Luton Town defender James Bree may be forced to come into the team and deputize should Walker-Peters not prove his fitness in what is a considerable downgrade on the right flank of the back four. Key pair Theo Walcott and Romeo Lavia should be in for a return to the XI.
