Southampton vs Tottenham England – Premier League Date: Tuesday, 29 December 2021 Kick-off at 15:00 UK / 16:00 CET Venue: St Mary’s Stadium.
Tottenham have truly returned to winning ways under Antonio Conte. After a set of convincing results, the club will head into St Mary’s Stadium with immense momentum on their side.
Despite managing just a win since the start of November, Southampton has managed to grind out points on a consistent basis, making them a difficult opposition to take all three points from.
The Saints came away with the win in a thrilling five-goal thriller away at London Stadium against West Ham.
The result marked the club’s first win in seven league fixtures. However, the club with just a loss in five previous games has added seven points to their tally from those fixtures.
Consequently, the club is 14th in the league, a comfortable nine points clear of the relegation zone.
The Lilywhites sealed a comfortable win at home against Crystal Palace by a score line of 3-0. They were largely helped by having a 1-man advantage for most of the game due to the sending off of Zaha.
This meant that disregarding their four-goal draw against Liverpool at home, the club has won their previous five fixtures.
Thus through thirteen points from those fixtures, the club is now 5th in the Premier League, six points behind arch-rivals Arsenal who is 4th in the league.
Southampton vs Tottenham Head-to-head
The North Londoners are undefeated in their last four duels.
Both teams got on the score sheet in those four fixtures.
Three or more goals were scored in six of their previous eight clashes.
The visitors have just a win in their last five trips to this venue.
Southampton vs Tottenham Prediction
All of Spurs’ previous five fixtures happened to be at home. Hence, it is easy to get carried away with their impressive performances. However, in away fixtures, the club has lost thrice in their last five fixtures and their only win in away fixtures since August was against Newcastle.
On the other side of things, the hosts are undefeated in five league matches and have lost just once at home this season. Considering these observations, I have backed Southampton with an Asian handicap.
Both clubs have been involved in high scoring fixtures recently, with at least an average of three goals per match in their preceding five fixtures. With forty goals scored between the sides this season, expect at least three goals this Tuesday.
