Tottenham vs Southampton betting tips: Premier League match preview & predictions

Tottenham vs Southampton 101 Great Goals’ prediction: Tottenham 2-1 Southampton

Mauricio Pochettino suffered one of the lowest moments of his five-year spell at Tottenham during the week, as his side were eliminated from the Carabao Cup at the hands of League Two Colchester United.

The defeat continued Spurs’ poor start to the season, which includes them twice surrendering two-goal leads and defeats against both Leicester and Newcastle.

Pochettino must now discover a way to refocus his players who look short of motivation and togetherness.

Southampton’s good start to the new campaign was halted last Friday as they suffered a 3-1 defeat against their south coast rivals Bournemouth.

However, Ralph Hasenhuttl side were quick to put the disappointment behind them, with a morale boosting win over fierce rivals Portsmouth.

The Saints will be confident heading to north London given Tottenham’s poor form, but Pochettino will be hopeful his side’s individual quality will prove decisive.

Premier League preview: Tottenham vs Southampton

Tottenham’s terrible away form continued on Tuesday as they suffered a shock defeat to Colchester from the fourth-tier.

Spurs have lost more Premier League away games than any other side in 2019 with 10.

But their form away from home is just one of the worrying signs Pochettino’s side have shown over the past few months.

Tottenham’s current group peaked two or three seasons back, despite their Champions League heroics, and their reluctance to refresh the squad has finally caught up with them.

The futures of many Spurs players are very uncertain and appear to be causing real issues behind the scenes.

Past Pochettino Tottenham sides would function so effectively because of cohesion amongst coaching staff and players, but that has quickly disappeared.

The Argentine manager spoke about solving the issue in the January transfer window, but he must look to find a quick fix to salvage Tottenham’s season.

Southampton looking to get back on track

After two defeats to start the season, the pressure was on for Hassenhuttl, but the German manager rose to the challenge with his side showing signs of real promise.

A convincing win over Brighton and Hove Albion was followed up with a hard-fought point against Manchester United.

The Saints then went away to Sheffield United and secured another three points, but Eddie Howe’s Bournemouth were quick to put to an end their promising run.

However, Hassenhuttl will be hopeful his team will have been lifted by their momentous win at Fratton Park.

It was the first South Coast derby in seven years and was Southampton’s first win at Pompey since 1984.
