Reason For Southampton vs Tottenham Hotspur Predictions

  • Both teams scored in 10 of the last 11 meetings between Southampton and Tottenham.
  • Southampton were unbeaten in each of their last four home meetings with Spurs.
  • Danny Ings scored three times in his last four appearances against Spurs
  • Tottenham played away in Bulgaria on Thursday evening in a UEL qualifier.

Saints’ frustrating start

Southampton hoped to use their strong end to the 2019/20 campaign and eventual 11th place Premier League finish as a platform to build on in the new season, however, in a repeat of last year’s slow start, the Saints have come limping out of the blocks.

A disappointing opening day 1-0 reverse at an injury-hit Crystal Palace was followed up by an embarrassing Carabao Cup exit at the hands of Brentford, albeit with a weakened team, however, successive defeats to nil have left Southampton frustrated.

Ralph Hasenhüttl will feel however, that his team deserved a share of the spoils at Selhurst Park last weekend after the Saints created and spurned several big opportunities against the Eagles, and if Southampton can sharpen up their finishing skills against Spurs on Sunday, points could be on offer.

Spurs look unconvincing

Tottenham Hotspur meanwhile, looking worryingly flat in their first Premier League outing of the season at home to Everton last weekend.

Spurs played second fiddle for the majority of the contest in North London, and in truth, their 1-0 defeat to the Toffees could have been worse had the impressive visitors been a little more clinical.

In response to their drab display, Jose Mourinho, somewhat surprisingly, fielded a virtually fully strength team in Tottenham’s Europa League qualification tussle in Bulgaria against minnows Lokomotiv Plovdiv on Thursday evening, though it took goals inside the last 10 minutes from Harry Kane and Tanguy Ndombele to see of the nine-man hosts in what proved an arduous test.

Goals at both ends likely

Encounters between Southampton and Tottenham have routinely been keenly contested tussles, and we expect their latest skirmish on Sunday to follow along the same lines.

The clubs have already locked horns three times in 2020 in one Premier League and two FA Cup duels, after which, Spurs and Southampton finished with a victory each and a draw.

Interestingly, both teams found the net in two of those games, and it’s worth noting that goals were plundered by both the Saints and Tottenham in 10 of their last 11 meetings since 2015.

With a strong BTTS pattern established in fixtures between Southampton and Spurs, the evidence suggests that backing both teams to register again on Sunday looks worthwhile at the prices quoted, though our correct score prediction tips the Saints to carve out a 2-1 victory on the south coast.

Rattled by their tough mid-week continental endeavours, fatigue could have a major effect on Tottenham’s performance on Sunday, and Southampton – who were unbeaten in each of their last four meetings with Spurs at St. Mary’s Stadium – can take advantage.

With three goals in his last four appearances against them, Saints’ leading marksman from last season, Danny Ings, could be the difference maker again, and the prolific 28-year-old, who Tottenham tried to sign this month, is worth backing to notch his first effort of the new campaign.
