Tottenham Hotspur, managed by former Southampton boss Mauricio Pochettino, may have dropped off the title pace of late, but they remain a tricky side.

Southampton have only been beaten by one team at St. Mary's in 2016 thus far—Chelsea. But, Saints have only recorded one win against Spurs since earning promotion back to the Premier League in 2012—a 2-1 away win at White Hart Lane last season.

Claude Puel is likely to welcome Oriol Romeu back into his Saints side today. Though, he will be missing Jordy Clasie alongside long-term absentees Charlie Austin and Matt Targett.

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.

In addition, Danny Rose and Vincent Janssen are also expected to be fit after recovering from varying niggles.


Stats Zone:

As alluded to above, Spurs are unbeaten in their last four visits to St Mary's, with three wins and a draw.

Southampton have lost once in the last six games, winning three and drawing two.

Saints have not conceded in four of the last six league fixtures, including three successive clean sheets at home.

Claude Puel's side have only scored eight goals at home in the league this season - the lowest tally of any team.

Tottenham have lost back-to-back away games - their only two defeats all season.

If Spurs win at Southampton they will have claimed 71 points in 2016, a new club record in the Premier League (surpassing their haul of 70 in 2013).

Tottenham could remain winless in six consecutive away games in the league for the first time since a run of eight matches without a victory in April 2012.
