FW Predictions for Southampton vs Tottenham

Premier League predictions for Tottenham's trip to bottom-of-the-table Southampton. Champions League hopefuls Tottenham are away at struggling Southampton this weekend where both teams need the 3pts but for very different reasons.

Tottenham to Win

Our first Southampton vs Tottenham prediction is for an away win. Tottenham have won four of their last six meetings with Southampton in all competitions and haven't lost any of their last three trips to St Mary's. The hosts have lost three of their last five matches in league and cup, going down 2-0 at home to Brentford in midweek, while Spurs have won three of their last four outings in the Premier League and head into this game as the bookmaker's pick to win.

Under 2.5 Goals

Our second Southampton vs Tottenham prediction concerns the under/over 2.5 goals market. We're not convinced that there will be a lot of goals in this game and have backed under 2.5 to be scored during the 90-minutes. Five of Southampton's and five of Tottenham's last six outings in all competitions have featured under 2.5 goals, adding plenty of weight to our prediction.

Let's take a look at the latest markets and odds ahead of Southampton vs Tottenham.

Southampton odds: 15/4 (4.75) – 21.1%

Draw odds: 14/5 (3.80) – 26.3%

Tottenham odds: 17/20 (1.85) – 54.1%

*all odds provided are the best price at the time of publication and come from various bookmakers and therefore the probabilities won't always add up to 100%.

Tottenham are the big favourite to win this weekend despite being the away side but if you want some more football betting tips then check out the First Goalscorer market.  As you might expect, Harry Kane is the favourite to score first at St Mary's and is priced at 16/5 (4.20) which has a probability of 23.8%, while teammates Heung-Min Son and Arnaut Danjuma have odds of 13/2 (7.50) and that carries a probability of 13.3%. If you want to back a Southampton player to score the first goal then look no further than Che Adams at 10/1 (11.00) but that only has a probability of 9.1%.

Southampton vs Tottenham Lineups

Southampton

Southampton fans will have been left worried by their midweek defeat at home to Brentford, especially after they had beaten Chelsea and picked up a point at Old Trafford previously. Goals from Toney in the first half and Wissa in second-half stoppage-time proved more than enough for the Bees to get the job done. The Saints really need to put in a much-improved performance at home to Spurs this weekend or risk being cut adrift at the bottom of the table.

Ainsley Maitland-Niles is hoping to be fit in time to face Tottenham this weekend but longterm absentees Juan Larios and Valentino Livramento are both expected to miss out once again.

Predicted Lineup – Bazunu (GK), Bednarek, Perraud, Walker-Peters, Bella-Kotchap, Elyounoussi, Ward-Prowse, Diallo, Alcaraz, Sulemana & Adams

Tottenham

Spurs were in great form at home to Nottingham Forest last weekend and probably could have won the game by more than a 2-goal margin. Kane netted twice in the first half and Son added a third goal just after the hour mark to put Tottenham 3-0 up. Forest managed to pull a goal back 9-minutes from time and missed a spot-kick in stoppage-time which could have made the scoreline a lot closer but in truth, the hosts more than deserved to win this game.

Yves Bissouma, Hugo Lloris, Ryan Sessegnon and Rodrigo Bentancur look set to miss the trip to the south coast this weekend through injury but Emerson could make his return to the squad.

Predicted Lineup – Forster (GK), Davies, Lenglet, Dier, Romero, Porro, Højbjerg, Skipp, Son, Kane & Richarlison

Player to Watch: Son Heung-Min

Tottenham's 30-year-old forward has started to come to life in recent weeks and that can only be a bad thing for Southampton this weekend.

The South Korean star has formed a fantastic partnership with Harry Kane and while he might not have been firing on all cylinders this season due to injury and the World Cup, Son has shown great improvements in recent weeks and has also been gelling with Richarlison who setup Son's goal against Nottingham Forest last time out.

We're backing Son to have another big game on Saturday against a low-on-confidence Southampton side.
