Tottenham - Southampton Preview: No clean sheet for Spurs in nine matches

Though the award-winning Gareth Bale has scored a league-high number of goals from outside the area, Andre Villas-Boas's men are struggling to keep it tight at the back

  PROBABLE LINEUPS

TOTTENHAM

Lloris
Walker, Dawson, Vertonghen, Assou-Ekotto 
Dembele, Parker
Lennon, Holtby, Bale
 
Defoe
SOUTHAMPTON

Boruc
Clyne, Yoshida, Hooiveld, Shaw
Davis, Schneiderlin, Cork
Lallana, Lambert, Rodriguez

Tottenham manager Andre Villas-Boas has a few first-team members missing for the visit of Southampton on Saturday but has no new injury concerns.

Brazilian midfielder Sandro (knee) is not expected to play again this season, while Younes Kaboul (also knee) and William Gallas (calf) are still doubtful.

Southampton boss Mauricio Pochettino does not have many fitness issues with which to contend but two red cards last time out against West Brom have ensued selection problems.

Left-back Danny Fox and Gaston Ramirez were both sent off in the defeat to Steve Clarke's team, meaning that neither will be available at White Hart Lane.

The Saints' only injury worry is Richard Chaplow (back) but he could make an appearance on the bench.
