Southampton face a very important fixture on Wednesday, they want to climb towards the top five and they meet fifth-placed Tottenham at St Mary's Stadium. Last season's league meetings between these two sides produced two away wins, 2-1 for Southampton in London and 2-0 for Tottenham at St Mary's. However, Tottenham have won four of the last six direct meetings, while the Saints only managed to win once.
Southampton are currently eighth in the league table, nine points behind Tottenham, so victory in this fixture could get them a lot closer to the top five. They are unbeaten in their last three league matches, with two wins and a draw recorded. Last time out they secured a solid 3-1 victory at Bournemouth, not an easy away match for any team in the league. Jeremy Pied, Matt Targett, Jake Hesketh and Charlie Austin are injured, while central defender Florin Gardos is not yet ready to come back into the first team after a lengthy injury lay-off.
Tottenham need to keep the pace of their rivals, and all of them secured victories on Boxing Day. The Spurs have won three of their last five league matches, including the last two, but they lost when they faced big teams: 1-0 at Manchester United and 2-1 at Chelsea. Manager Mauricio Pochettino has a few injury doubts ahead of this match, including Erik Lamela, Vincent Janssen, Danny Rose and Toby Alderweireld.
Southampton: Forster - Soares, Fonte, Van Dijk, Bertrand - Clasie, Romeu, Davis - Redmond, Rodriguez, Boufal
Tottenham: Lloris - Walker, Alderweireld, Vertonghen, Rose - Wanyama, Winks - Eriksen, Dembele, Alli - Kane
My prediction: 2-2 draw.
Here are the odds for the match at Bet365:
Southampton win - 2.90
Draw - 3.30
Tottenham win - 2.63
