Tottenham vs. Southampton Team News:

Following Mark Hughes’ sacking on Monday morning, former Saints goalkeeper Kelvin Davis will take interim charge of Southampton on Wednesday night’s away trip to play Tottenham.

There are other problems with Saints in what is certain to be a tough fixture.

Davis’ Southampton squad will miss Mario Lemina through suspension, while the likes of Michael Obafemi, Ryan Bertrand, Matt Targett and Danny Ings are all big injury doubts.

Former Saints manager Mauricio Pochettino’s Spurs are without defender Jan Vertonghen, who is banned following his red card against Arsenal on Sunday.

Vertonghen’s Belgian compatriot Toby Alderweireld, a former Southampton player, is likely to feature in his place.
