Southampton is all set to host Tottenham Hotspurs for its home game at the St. Mary’s Stadium. This will be Southampton’s 19th game of the ongoing Premier League season, and the last one for the current calendar year.
Southampton has had a poor season so far, and is currently in the bottom half of the table, at 14th spot with just 20 points in 18 games. It has registered just one win in the last 5 games when it won against West Ham United. A win in this game can however help it move into the top 10, overtaking 4 teams in the process.
On the other hand, Antonio Conte has done well to change the fortunes of Tottenham since he took over the reins from Nuno Espirito Santo, winning 4 out of the 6 games, and drawing 2. The Spurs enter this contest on a high, having beaten their nemesis in the early part of the season, Crystal Palace, 3-0.
Match prediction and betting tips for Southampton vs Tottenham Hotspurs Premier League 2021-22. The match is going to be played at the St. Mary’s Stadium, Southampton, on the 28th of December 2021.
This will be the 200th game that both the sides will play against each other, across competitions. In the 199 games played so far, the Hotspurs have a slight upper hand, with 85 wins, while the Saints have won on 64 occasions. This game seems no different, with most betting sites predicting the result to go in favour of Tottenham.
Southampton has had a triple blow, with Jack Stephens, Lyanco, and Nathan Tella testing positive for COVID 19. Along with them, we expect Alex McCarthy to be out of action with a thigh injury. However, coach Hasenhuttl will be able to avail the services of Che Adams, Adam Armstrong, and Diallo.
As for the Lilywhites, Conte could start with Steven Bergwijn or Bryan Gil. Harry Kane is also almost certain to start. The team will however continue to miss Romero and Sessegnon.
While the Saints have held their fort at St. Mary’s so far this season, the fresh energy that Conte has brought into the Spurs team may prove just enough for the Lilywhites to scrape through. The game will most certainly be a high-scoring one.
Bet on Tottenham Hotspurs win.
Both teams have scored in the previous four matches that Southampton has played against Tottenham. Southampton has also conceded goals in four out of its previous five matches and is one of the weakest defenses around. We don't think it is going to be an issue to see Tottenham score and so SOuthampton scoring is the real risk you want to factor in. Still worth a punt, though.
