Tottenham vs. Southampton Team and Injury News:

Southampton visit Tottenham today in what will be their first visit to the new Tottenham Hotspur Stadium opened late last season.

Fresh off thrashing South Coast neighbours Portsmouth 0-4 IN THEIR OWN BACK YARD, Saints are on a bit of a high following a disappointing 3-1 home loss to AFC Bournemouth days before.

Meanwhile, Mauricio Pochettino’s Tottenham are in a bit of a state of disarray at the moment, getting beat by Leicester City and then dumped out of the League Cup by League Two side Colchester City midweek.

Saints boss Ralph Hasenhuttl will be missing speedy winger Moussa Djenepo due to a leg injury, while goalkeeper Alex McCarthy is a doubt after picking up a muscle problem against Portsmouth in the week.

Spurs are still without new signings Giovani Lo Celso and Ryan Sessegnon with injury.

Pochettino rested the likes of Harry Kane, Hugo Lloris and Jan Verthongen in the Carabao Cup on Tuesday, so it’s likely they are all set to return.
