Harry Kane heads Spurs in front of Southampton

Dele Alli has the arrogance of a young Steven Gerrard and is worth more than £50 million- Redknapp

Former Southampton loanee Toby Alderweireld is back for Tottenham after missing their impressive win over Burnley with a back injury, while Mousa Dembele is also expected to return.

'Yes why not? It's true the Premier League is very tough now, and all the big clubs, the sides are fighting at the top, ' Pochettino said.

Claude Puel wants Southampton's fans to focus on backing the team rather than berating former boss Mauricio Pochettino. However, that did not happen.

The Argentinian could not have enjoyed the way his players were being put under constant pressure and there were a number of nervy moments as they attempted to stem the tide of Saints attacks. Tottenham is now placed at the fifth spot ahead of Manchester United in the sixth spot in the table only difference lying in the goal difference.

The have been inconsistent on-the-road, which could be a thing for the Saints' chances, but the Spurs are winless in their last six consecutive away games and are due for a victory. Also, a win in this match will see the home side getting ahead of Everton to the seventh spot.

In truth, a trip to St Mary's is a far from obvious opportunity to snap that sequence as Southampton have lost just one Premier League game at home this season. We tried 10 against 11 and I praise the spirit of my players because they tried to find a solution'.

Danny Rose has recovered from a thigh complaint and Vincent Janssen is fit again, but Erik Lamela remains out. However, The Saints continue to be without star striker Charlie Austin and Jordy Clasie is not fit enough to mark his return to the club.

The teams last played in May and Southampton won the game 1 - 2.

"It will always be a special place for me and a lot of people I still have a relationship with".

Southampton vs Spurs is set to begin at 7.45pm GMT (2.45pm ET, 1.15am IST).
