Southampton vs. Tottenham Team News, Injury Update:

Southampton manager Ralph Hasenhuttl confirmed that he will not risk Danny Ings against Tottenham, giving him the next three weeks where Saints do not have a game to recover from his hamstring injury.

Mario Lemina could return for Saints after having abdominal surgery.

Tottenham manager Mauricio Pochettino could welcome Dele Alli back into the side, who has also been suffering from a troublesome hamstring - missing the last seven weeks.

Harry Winks is unlikely to play with a recurring groin problem, but Kieran Trippier could return.

Former Saints boss Pochettino will not be on the touchline at St. Mary’s on Saturday as he serves a touchline ban.
