What Trueform says for Tottenham vs Southampton
Tottenham were put to the sword by Arsenal on Sunday but should quickly return to winning ways when entertaining Southampton at Wembley.
Spurs had won their three previous Premier League fixtures, as well as two Champions League games and an EFL Cup tie in a six-match hot streak.
Getting back to that form would be good enough to see off struggling Saints, who sacked Mark Hughes on Monday.
We’re snapping up Evens for the hosts to oblige by more than one clear goal for our first Tottenham vs Southampton prediction, as they romped to a 5-2 triumph in this fixture last term.
A Look At Tottenham Hotspur’s Betting Odds
Tottenham seemed on course for a seventh straight win in all competitions when coming from behind to lead 2-1 at half-time against the Gunners at Emirates Stadium.
Eric Dier and Harry Kane overturned Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang’s opener, but Spurs were then blown away after the break, with a late dismissal for Jan Vertonghen rubbing salt into the wounds.
Dier commented: “Second half we just weren’t good enough. It’s hard to say why, but they were better than us and deserved to win.
“But there’s so long to go in this league and we’re very confident in ourselves. We were in the same position last year after we came here.”
Tottenham responded to last November’s derby defeat at the Emirates by beating Borussia Dortmund in Germany three days later, so bouncing back here should be well within their compass.
Kane, Dele Alli and Heung-Min Son all have good records against the Saints, scoring six, five and three times respectively in the last half-a-dozen meetings.
Looking at the Tottenham vs Southampton odds, Alli is the value to break the deadlock this time at 11/2, ahead of Kane on 2/1 and Son at 4/1.
Last Tottenham line-up: Lloris, Vertonghen, Foyth, Aurier, Davies, Dier, Sissoko, Alli, Eriksen, Son, Kane.
A Look At Southampton’s Betting Odds
Southampton have gone 10 Premier League games without a win after drawing 2-2 with Manchester United at St Mary’s Stadium on Saturday.
Early goals from Stuart Armstrong and Cedric Soares gave the Saints a great start, but United were level before the break and then the second period was sadly lacking in quality.
Hughes has since paid the price for a poor run of results, with his exit coming just a month after the departure of vice-chairman of football Les Reed and technical director Martin Hunter.
Saints are now understood to be looking at highly-rated former RB Leipzig manager Ralph Hasenhuttl to re-energise the club, but first-team coach Kelvin Davis will take interim charge for this trip.
One plus point is that the visitors have scored in their last four top-flight matches, so let’s add 21/2 for a 3-1 home win to our Tottenham vs Southampton betting tips.
