Southampton will be traveling to North London to take on Tottenham Hotspur, as the English Premier League 2021-22 resumes after the international break.
While the Spurs lost their last Premier League game by 2-0 against Chelsea, they did manage to get back to winning ways, thrashing their fellow top-flight team Brighton 3-1 in the 4th round of the FA Cup. Tottenham has seen two of its Premier League games, against Arsenal and Brighton getting postponed due to COVID outbreaks. This means that the team has played only 20 games so far, and is in 7th place with 36 points.
It trails 4th placed Manchester United, who has played two games extra, by two points, and 5th placed West Ham, who have played 3 games extra, by just 1 point. At this stage of the tournament, Antonio Conte will be feeling pretty confident about finishing in the top 4.
The Saints on the other hand have lacked consistency in this season, and are suffering in 12th place with just 26 points from 22 games. Ralph Hasenhuttl will be happy from the fact that his boys managed to hold the current Champions and table-toppers Manchester City to a draw in the last Premier League game, and also managed to beat Coventry to secure a place in the 5th round of FA Cup. A win in this game will help Southampton break into the top 10, overtaking Leicester City.
Match prediction and betting tips for Tottenham Hotspur F. C. vs Southampton F. C. Premier League 2021-22. The match is going to be played at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium, London, on 9th February 2022.
The Spurs tasted their first defeat under Conte, playing the North West London derby against Chelsea. But with a championship spot now at stake, the Spurs cannot afford any more slip-ups. The team has been leaking goals, and will need to shore up its defense should they want to win this one. Heung-min Son remains unavailable for this game, and Oliver Skipp as well as Japhet Tanganga too are injured. New acquisitions Kulusevski and Bentacur are likely to make their debuts in this game.
Southampton has conceded at least one goal in its last 11 Premier League games and has been struggling to keep the opponents out of its penalty box. In this game too, we expect them to concede at least a couple of goals. Alex McCarthy and Will Smallbone are unavailable for this game due to injuries.
Bet on Tottenham to win.
Southampton has conceded a goal in its previous 11 matches and we have seen Tottenham struggle with its defense as well. There are likely to be plenty of goals in this match and both teams could quite easily got on the scoresheet by the final whistle.
