The match is over.
Spurs have not had it all their own way so far this season and will be hoping that with a home crowd behind them they can pick up the three points to climb the league.
Southampton have only managed six goals so far this season and the Tottenham defence will be thinking that they can keep a misfiring Saints forward line at bay.
Tottenham fans will feel that this game is there for the taking. Southampton have not done badly so far this season but are not scoring many – Spurs could take advantage here.
Spurs should be able to control this match from the kick off – and it would be something of a surprise if Southampton were able to take the lead away from home .
Head to Head
This fixture has seen some high scores in the last few years – and Tottenham managed a 3-1 win at home last season. The last time Southampton won in north London was in the 2015/16 season.
Spurs to win
Southampton boosted their forward line in the summer but Che Adams is yet to get off the mark for his new team. He would love to score against Spurs – but there is more likelihood of action down the other end of the pitch in this one.
