Southampton vs Tottenham 19 Dec 2015: EPL Preview and Predictions
19 December 2015/ 1000ET
We head to St Mary’s stadium this weekend as Southampton will play host to Tottenham in what is going to be an amazing match. Both teams will be desperate to get three points here and I think that will allow this game to be exciting and entertaining.
Tottenham lost to Newcastle last weekend in what was an embarrassing outing for Spurs. This Spurs team had only lost one game in the Premier League prior to that defeat and this shock loss would have dented the confidence. That being said, I think that Tottenham are a good side and that loss was nothing but a speed bump that they will get over. They are going to be away from which is not ideal but they are playing against a team that is out of form and they will fancy their chances of getting three points here.
Southampton are out of form and this was shown in the match against Crystal Palace last week where they played well but still managed to lose. Nothing is going right for the saints and they are quickly falling down the Premier League ladder. This is going to be a tough game for Southampton and they will be heavily dependent of their home ground to give the side a confidence boost. That being said, this team has plenty of talent and if they play to their best they can beat most opposition. Three points is in deep need for Southampton since they are out of form and they will want to do everything in their power to turn it around.
Overall I think this will be a good game and I believe that Tottenham will be too good here. Southampton are a good side and they have the home crowd behind them but I think that Spurs have too much quality up front, at the back and in the centre of the park. Surprisingly Tottenham are slight underdogs here which I think is a result of their loss to Newcastle. I think that loss was a one off and I am truly confident that they can bounce back and get the three points here. My money will be on Tottenham and at the price we are getting I think it should be a big bet.
