Southampton faces Tottenham Hotspur on Sunday, September 20th at St. Mary's Stadium for an English Premier League match.
Southampton is coming off a 1-0 loss to Crystal Palace on Saturday, September 12th. It was Southampton's first match of the new Premier League season, and it did not go according to plan. Despite owning 71% of the possession and holding the shot advantage, Southampton was held scoreless in the match. Crystal Palace's Wilfried Zaha scored the only goal in the match in the 13th minute. Southampton was also upset by Brentford on September 16th in the English Carabao Cup by the final score of 2-0. Southampton is having major problems on offense, as even though the club is doing well with possessing the ball, the goals are not following. Southampton's fate in the Premier League could be decided by how the club addresses this lack of scoring.
Tottenham suffered a shock loss to Everton in its first match of the season. Everton took down Tottenham by the final score of 1-0, as a goal by Dominic Calvert-Lewin in the 55th minute was all that was needed for Everton. Tottenham rarely plays as poorly at home as it did against Everton in that match, but Hotspur will look to rebound on the road against a feasible Southampton team. Tottenham will look to none other than Harry Kane to kickstart the offense in Premier League play, as he is the catalyst for this Hotspur offense.
The last time Southampton and Tottenham met was on February 5th of 2020. In that match, Tottenham took down Southampton in an offensive showdown by the final score of 3-2. That match was also featured in the English FA Cup. Each club has won two matches against the other in the last five meetings between Tottenham and Southampton.
Although Tottenham's weak first match of the season worries me surely, I still believe that this club is destined for big things in the Premier League. I like Tottenham to bounce back and win a hard fought match on the road against a frustrated Southampton club. I will take Tottenham on the money line.
