The Saints have been showing good results in recent weeks. In eight matches in all competitions, they lost only to Wolverhampton (3-1). And in the last home game of the Premier League, the Red-Whites interrupted Manchester City’s long winning streak (1-1). On 5 February, Southampton beat Coventry City in the FA Cup home match with certain difficulties.

Head-to-head matches of recent years are almost always distinguished by the fact that both Tottenham and Southampton score at least one goal. The upcoming game will only support this tradition. The Spurs scored in five home rounds in a row, but they have not kept a clean sheet for a long time. Namely, the Lilywhites have conceded in the last six matches in all competitions. Southampton players exchanged goals with their opponents in their previous eight official fixtures, and their streak of conceded goals has reached 13 games.
