Tottenham vs Southampton
English Premier League
Date: Wednesday, 5 December 2018
Kick-Off at 20:00 UK
Venue: Tottenham Hotspur Stadium (London).
Tottenham have seen their six-game winning streak ended by fierce rivals Arsenal on Sunday despite taking the lead in the first half, as they conceded four goals and dropped important points at Emirates.
The Spurs now sit fifth-placed after 14 games played and will be desperate to bounce back quickly, with a rather convincing show of power across competitions beforehand.
Southampton, on the other end, come into the match on the back of a thriller 2-2 draw seen over the weekend and they will now want to hold off another big gun, despite seeing a very disappointing League Cup loss at Leicester (on penalties after a goalless draw) just days beforehand.
Saints sit in the Premier League relegation zone with just nine points earned so far and causing an upset in London does feel like a longshot, despite Spurs in need of time to recuperate after the weekend loss. Mauricio Pochettino has high hopes Southampton will be a good chance to do so and it surely does feel like it ahead of the contest.
