Southampton v Tottenham Hotspur Preview, Premiership, 28th December 2016

Southampton head into this game having had a good season so far and well within reach of securing a place in Europe next season if they can keep the good results going over the next couple of months.

The hosts are currently in 7th position in the league table on 24pts having secured 6 wins, 6 draws and 5 defeats from their 17 matches played and a victory in this game on Wednesday night could see them close the gap on both Manchester United and Tottenham Hotspur above them, depending on how other results go on Boxing Day.

Tottenham Hotspur head into the game having also had a good season so far, however there will be some dissapointment in the dressing room having lost to both Chelsea and Manchester United in recent weeks as those results have now seen the club begin to lose touch with a bit in the race for the title and makes this game extremely important to win if they are to keep any title bid hopes alive.

The visitors are currently in 5th position in the league table on 33pts having secured 9 wins, 6 draws and 2 defeats of their 17 matches played and a victory in this game against Southampton could see them potentialy move up into 3rd place of the league table if other results go their way.

Southampton Team News :

The hosts will be without the services of Jordy Clasie who is out with a groin injury but other than that Southampton have a full squad available for this game.

Tottenam Hotspur Team News :

The visitors welcome back Alderwireld, Janssen and Demble to the squad after all three players passed late fitness tests and this has come as a huge boost to the club in what looks a tricky away match.

Southampton v Tottenham Hotspur Head to Head Statistics:

Wednesday night’s game from St Marys Stadium will become the 79th meeting between the two clubs over the years, of which Southampton have won 24 times overall with 16 of those victories having came with home advantage.

Tottenham Hotspur have managed to secure 36 victories overall with 11 of those having came away from home and with the club having a good record away from home this season, the players and fans will certainly believe Spurs can return home to North London with maximum points from this game.

As we can see from our head to head to head statistics table shown below, the last five recent meetings shows Tottenham Hotspur with a clear advantage, having won three times, compared to Southampton having won one and the remaining match having finished all square.

233 Goals have been scored in the previous 78 meetings between the two clubs and this provides us with an overall average goals per game statistic of 2.99.

97 of those Goals have came in the 39 previous matches played at St Marys Stadium and this generates us an average goal scoring statistic of 2.49.

Based on both sets of data shown above it does seem to suggest that we should see at least a couple of goals scored in this game and betting markets like Both Teams to Score YES and Total Goals 2 or 3 both looking good options on the goals markets for this match.

Southampton v Tottenham Hotpsur Match Predictions, Banker Tips & First Goal Scorer Bets

Southampton have not faired that well in recent seasons when going up against Tottenham Hotspur, but they did manage to win their last meeting, which took place at White Hart Lane 2-1 and that result will no doubt provide both the players and fans with plenty of confidence head into this game.

Tottenham Hotspur have been pretty much foot perfect for four months of the new season in the league having remained unbeaten, but with the club having suffered two defeats in the space of four weeks that does put me off slightly of their chances of winning this one.

However, as their manager will probably make fully aware to his players in the dressing room before this game, a victory is of the upmost priority if they are to keep their title bid in tact and with Christian Eriksen having eventually found his scoring boots, I do think the visitors will just nick this one by the odd goal or two.

Onto some predictions then and my Banker Free Tip for this game is going to be for Tottenham Hotspur to win as with a good record at St Marys Stadium over recent seasons and having a very good overall season up until now, I do feel the Spurs side will just prove that little bit stronger of the 90mins to win this one.

My First Goalscorer Free Tip for this game will be for Tottenham Hotspur Striker Harry Kane to Score the 1st Goal of the Game as with the England International having gone three games now with a goal, he will be eager to get his name down on the score-sheet in this one.
