THE TEAM NEWS

SOUTHAMPTON

  • Southampton are enjoying a fine run of form over the Christmas period having taken seven points from their last three matches in the league.
  • Ralph Hasenhuttl will be tempted to rotate but given the form of his team, he may keep faith with the vast majority of his in-form team.
  • Armstrong may come back into the starting line-up on the right, while it would be no surprise if Romeu or Obafemi came in to add fresh legs.

Predicted line-up (4-4-2): McCarthy; Cedric, Bednarek, Stephens, Bertrand; Armstrong, Ward-Prowse, Hojbjerg, Redmond; Ings, Adams

Unavailable: Valery (Injured), Long (Injured)

Doubtful:

TOTTENHAM

  • Tottenham grabbed a late equaliser at Norwich on Saturday to draw 2-2 and remain within touching distance of Chelsea in fourth place.
  • Jose Mourinho was not overly happy with the performance of his team in that game and may be tempted to make a handful of changes here.
  • Sissoko and Winks are back from a ban and the former should at least return, while Sanchez and Lucas Moura could also return to the side.

Predicted line-up (3-4-2-1): Gazzaniga; Sanchez, Alderweireld, Vertonghen; Aurier, Eriksen, Sissoko, Sessegnon; Lucas Moura, Alli; Kane

Unavailable: Lloris (Injured), Rose (Injured), Davies (Injured), Son (Suspended)

Doubtful:

THE PREDICTION

Tottenham continue to be wildly inconsistent under Jose Mourinho but their matches have been extremely entertaining. They are conceding goals at an alarming rate and with Southampton far from secure at the back but enjoying Danny Ings' rich vein of form, goals are highly likely at St. Mary's.
