Team news, key stats and predictions ahead of Tottenham vs Southampton in the Premier League.
Tottenham boss Mauricio Pochettino will recall his big guns for the clash against Southampton. Pochettino made 10 changes as his side were embarrassingly dumped out of the Carabao Cup at League Two Colchester on Tuesday.
Giovani Lo Celso (hip) and Ryan Sessegnon (hamstring) remain injured but there are no fresh selection issues.
Moussa Djenepo will still be missing for Southampton. Djenepo has been sidelined with a muscle injury in his leg and will not be fit for the trip to London.
Goalkeeper Alex McCarthy is a doubt with a muscle problem he sustained midweek at Portsmouth, but he will be assessed.

- Tottenham Hotspur have won seven of their last eight home Premier League matches against Southampton (W7 D0 L1), losing the other 2-1 in May 2016.
- Southampton are looking to win consecutive Premier League matches against Tottenham for the first time since winning three in a row between January 2003 and March 2004.
- Tottenham versus Southampton will become only the second Premier League fixture to be played in five different stadiums (Wembley, White Hart Lane, Tottenham Stadium, St Mary's, The Dell), after Tottenham versus West Ham (Wembley, White Hart Lane, Tottenham Stadium, Boleyn Ground, London Stadium).
- Tottenham have lost 10 of their 24 Premier League games so far in 2019, their most in a single calendar year in the competition since 2014 (12/38). Of ever-present sides over the two seasons, only Brighton (13), Watford (12) and Bournemouth (11) have lost more Premier League games this year than Spurs.
- Southampton are looking to win three consecutive away top-flight games for the first time since February 2015 (a run of four), while the last time they did so without conceding was in April 1992. However, Saints have lost eight of their last 10 league games in London (W1 D1).
- Tottenham's last eight Premier League victories have been in home games - they last had a longer run of wins coming exclusively at home between April 2000-January 2001 (10).
Southampton got a great win at Portsmouth. You may say it's only Portsmouth, but it was a derby and a derby that they needed to win. I have said this and repeated it, but there are issues at Tottenham. Mauricio Pochettino, for the first time in his tenure, is thinking this is an unhappy camp. Tottenham need to win - to get at Southampton and get some service to Harry Kane.
There are lots of negatives around Tottenham but they will win here. I never thought they would be around Manchester City or Liverpool but I expect them to fight for the top four. Che Adams is struggling and Ralph Hasenhuttl will want to play him, but I would leave him out and play Nathan Redmond higher up, flooding the midfield in the process. There will be moaning and groaning but Tottenham will get the result. They could do with a goal in the first 20 minutes to calm things down.
CHARLIE PREDICTS: 2-0 (13/2 with Sky Bet)
Fantasy Football tip
Serge Aurier (£8.1m) has 14 points from his two matches this campaign, grabbing two assists against Crystal Palace and unluckily having a goal ruled out against Leicester, with the added possibility of clean sheet bonus points to take into consideration.
