Tottenham vs. Southampton: Premier League – Match Preview

Tottenham will look to continue their good form at home to Southampton on Sunday in the Premier League.

Spurs thrashed Millwall 6-0 in the FA Cup Quarter-Final last time out, however Harry Kane sustained another ligament injury in the victory.

Heung Min Son scored a superb hat-trick for the hosts, with Vincent Janssen scoring his first from open play.

Southampton’s last fixture was a fortnight ago, a 4-3 thriller away at Watford in the Premier League.

Manolo Gabbiadini continued his excellent start to his Saints career with a sixth goal in his fourth game.
