The hosts have seen their results dip in the recent past and with that their position in the points tally.

Things aren’t any great at home either, as Southampton are winless in their last four home matches (D2, L2). Overall, this Premier League season, the Saints have won just three at home in 12 matches (W3, D4, L5). Can they make it count in this Southampton vs Tottenham Hotspur game?
