The hosts are out of form while the visitors boast a strong defensive record on the road and we are backing a low-scoring clash in North London

Tottenham host Southampton in the Premier League this weekend with Mauricio Pochettino's men hoping to get back to winning ways after after a difficult period in the last couple of weeks.

Spurs let a 2-0 lead slip to draw 2-2 in their Champions League opener with Olympiacos before being beaten 2-1 against Leicester City last weekend. Midweek also saw the North Londoners knocked out of the Carabao Cup by third-tier Colchester meaning Saturday's game with Southampton takes on added significance. 

Latest odds

Southampton have won both of their last two away games in the Premier League while the Saints also enjoyed a 4-0 derby win at Portsmouth in the Carabao Cup this week. Ralph Hasenhuttl's side are offered at 7.50 with Sportsbet to claim three points, while Spurs can be backed at 1.40 and the draw at 4.50.

Tottenham vs Southampton Team News

Giovanni Lo Celso remains sidelined for Spurs although his compatriot Juan Foyth is pushing for a return from the ankle problem that has kept him out so far this season. Ryan Sessegnon also is unavailable for Pochettino. The visitors have winger Mousa Djenepo missing.

Tottenham vs Southampton Preview

Spurs' last home game saw them convincingly beat Crystal Palace 4-0 but we should not expect such a straight-forward game this weekend. It is a busy period for Pochettino's men, who are in the middle of a run of seven games in 21 days with Bayern Munich visiting north London on Wednesday in the Champions League. The visit of Southampton will be about just trying to churn out a result rather than turn on the style and the Saints will no doubt make life tough for the hosts. The side from the south coast have kept four consecutive clean sheets on the road in all competitions and they could make it a frustrating afternoon for Tottenham.

Tips and predictions

The price of 2.26 for under 2.5 goals looks too good to turn down and seems a logical selection for what should be an evenly matched game.
