Can Spurs bounce back from last weekend’s North London derby defeat?
Where: White Hart Lane
Live Stream: NOW TV Sky Sports Day Pass
Spurs need to win today against Pochettino’s impressive Southampton outfit if they are to have any chance at all of a top four finish.
Realistically though, it probably won’t happen after last weekend’s defeat to Arsenal saw them fall nine behind both Liverpool and the Gunners, who both a game in hand.
Boss Tim Sherwood is likely to recall Emmanuel Adebayor, Younes Kaboul and Mousa Dembele, who all sat out the Europa League tie with Benfica on Thursday evening.
Jan Vertonghen should similarly return to the side, although he was suspended midweek.
The visitors are without Jack Cork and Vincent Wanyama, so will be desperate for midfield battler Morgan Schneiderlin to pass a late fitness test.
If the Saints win, they’ll move to within five points of Spurs with seven league matches to play.
The match will be live on Sky Sports with coverage starting at 1pm. If you don’t have a Sky subscription why not grab yourself a NOW TV Sky Sports Day Pass – Pay As You Go access to all 6 Sky Sports channels for the first time ever!
