Saints could face a Spurs backlash...
<div><div><div><div id=":ra"><div id=":ps"><div dir="ltr"><h2>Tottenham vs Southampton</h2><p><a href="" rel="nofollow" target="_blank"><strong>Saturday, September 28, at Tottenham Hotspur Stadium</strong></a></p><p>Spurs suffered a 2-1 defeat away at Leicester last time out and that saw them slide down to seventh in the table. They looked tired after a midweek trip to Greece, which saw them surrender a two-goal lead to draw 2-2 with Olympiakos. Now they have had a full week to recover and prepare for the visit of Southampton, and they should give a much better account of themselves. The Saints lost 3-1 at home to Bournemouth at the weekend, ending a three-game unbeaten streak, and they could be on the end of a Tottenham backlash in this game.</p><h2>Team News</h2><p>Dele Alli was rested for the game against Leicester and Christian Eriksen was left on the bench, but they could both return to the starting 11 on Saturday. Hugo Lloris also missed the trip to the Midlands as his wife was due to give birth, but he could also come back into the side for this one. Giovani Lo Celso, Ryan Sessegnon and Juan Foyth are long-term absentees, but otherwise Mauricio Pochettino has no further injury concerns.</p><p>Southampton's Moussa Djenepo is facing an extended spell on the sidelines after manager Ralph Hasenhuttl confirmed the winger’s leg injury is worse than first thought. Djenepo, who has two goals in four appearances this season, had a recurrence of a previous muscle condition. Danny Ings and Shane Long were both kept on the bench as Ralph Hassenhuttl opted to play Che Adams alongside the returning Nathan Redmond up front in Southampton’s defeat to Bournemouth. Kevin Danso came back into the side following a suspension, and saw the Saints return to their favoured back four.</p><h2>Betting Analysis</h2><p>Tottenham have won their last three home games against Southampton and they should be able to extend that record on Saturday. The last nine meetings between these teams have seen over 1.5 goals, so backing Tottenham to win and over 1.5 goals at 1.67 with Coral looks appealing. Tottenham beat Crystal Palace 4-0 in their last home game, despite the Eagles boasting a strong defensive record, and they could do a similar number on the Saints, so giving the home team a handicap might appeal.</p><p><strong>Tips: Tot<a href=";a=acd6b93a-905e-45af-90ef-7eb1df661829&amp;f=1" rel="nofollow" target="_blank" title="Coral">tenham to win and over 1.5 goals at 1.67 with Coral</a>; <a href=";a=bf7f64f4-cd67-4904-9b00-6ded1d41fd18&amp;f=1" rel="nofollow" target="_blank" title="Bet365">Tottenham -1.25 Asian handicap at 1.97 (97/100) with Bet365</a></strong></p></div></div></div></div></div></div>
