Betting tips for Tottenham vs Southampton 05.12.2018
After the defeat at the North London derby, Tottenham are now looking to return to their winning streak, now focusing on the reception at Southampton on Wednesday night as the two teams play at Wembley in a challenge to be played for the 15th day of the Premier League. Tottenham come here after a defeat at Emirates, and now seeks to return to winning ways. On the other side comes a Southampton who managed to draw against Manchester United, although they have wasted a two-goal lead on the scoreboard.
Tottenham are in 5th place with 30 points, with 10 wins and 4 losses, with 25 goals scored and 15 goals conceded. After three consecutive victories in the English league, at Wolverhampton (2-3) and Crystal Palace (0-1), and at home to Chelsea (3-1), Tottenham were unable to increase the winning record to four games to end up defeated in Arsenal's (4-2) field on Sunday, a game where he still led the score (1-2) but failed to keep it to the end. The derby defeat in the north of London saw the Spurs fall to the top of the table for 5th place in the Europa League, now with the same points as 4th Arsenal and 1 point behind 3rd.
The Lilywhites have only 4 games played at home this season for the Premier League, won 3 and lost the remainder, scoring 8 goals and 4 goals conceded. It is noteworthy that this only home defeat came at the hands of Manchester City (0-1). Pochettino could no longer count on Vincent Janssen, Dembélé, Davinson Sánchez, all injured, and now sees Jan Vertonghen join teammates, this one to fulfill punishment. Already Kieran Trippier and Erik Lamela, who missed the game against Arsenal, hope to be recovered in time for this meeting. This match against the Saints comes in good time, as Tottenham won 6 of the last 7 direct bouts to play as visited.
Southampton are in 18th place with 9 points, with 1 win, 6 draws and 7 losses, with 12 goals scored and 26 goals conceded. Southampton have been in a bad shape this season, having added the only win of the season on Matchday 4 at Southampton (0-2) on 1 September and have since lost 5 of the next 10 games for the Premier League. After the defeat against Fulham (3-2), the Saints almost surprised on the last day with the reception to Manchester United, they were winning 2-0, but conceded two goals in the first half, maintaining the draw for 2-2 from the interval to the end of the game.
However, despite the draw against the Red Devils, the club's management decided to dismiss coach Mark Hughes and it is now up to Kelvin Davis to elect the best eleven here. Shane Long is out for injury, and Mario Lemina is punished, with Matt Targett, Ryan Bertrand, Michael Obafemi and Danny Ings all in doubt. Out of doors, the Saints won only 1 of 7 games for the league, losing 5, scoring 6 goals and 16 goals conceded.
The set led by Mauricio Pochettino presents individualities of great importance, and to play at home the victory will certainly smile to the Spurs, in what will be a difficult debut game for Kelvin Davies at the command of the Saints.
