Southampton had 53% of the game’s possession and 18 attempts on goal, four of which were on goal. Manchester United, on the other hand, made 10 efforts at goal, with 4 of them being successful.

Southampton has recently had issues with their forward movement. In their last six games, they have only scored 4 goals total against opponents. Southampton has also had five goals scored against them in those encounters.

Tottenham Hotspur enters this match after defeating Nottingham Forest 3-1 in their previous Premier League contest. Tottenham Hotspur had 56% of the game’s possession and 7 of its 15 attempts on goal were successful.

The following are the results of the survey. Five of Nottingham Forest’s nine goal efforts found the back of the net. The goal for Nottingham Forest came from Joe Worrall (81′).

A noticeably low number of goals have been scored between Tottenham Hotspur and their opponents in 5 of the previous 6 encounters.

The total average goals scored per game within that period comes to a meagre 1.67, with the number of goals averaged by Spurs standing at 1.17. Leaving that aside, we’ll just have to wait to see if this pattern will continue in the upcoming game.

Southampton vs Tottenham – Betting Analysis

Looking at their previous head-to-head matches dating back to February 5, 2020, Southampton has won one and Tottenham Hotspur has won four, with one match being tied. In addition, there were a ton of goals in those games—27 in total, or 4.5 goals per game.

Gavin Bazunu, Kyle Walker-Peters, Jan Bednarek, Armel Bella-Kotchap, Romain Perraud, Carlos Alcaraz, Jamie Ward-Prowse, Roméo Lavia, Kamal-Deen Sulemana, Theo Walcott, and Che Adams are potential players for The Saints in a 4-4-2 formation.

Antonio Conte, the boss of Tottenham Hotspur, is currently concerned about some player fitness. Names that won’t appear on the squad sheet include Yves Bissouma (Ankle Fracture), Hugo Lloris (Knee Injury), Ryan Sessegnon (Hamstring Injury), and Rodrigo Bentancur (Cruciate Ligament Rupture).

We think Spurs will most likely choose a 3-4-2-1 system with the following players as starters: Fraser Forster, Cristian Romero, Eric Dier, Clement Lenglet, Pedro Porro, P. Emil Hjbjerg, Oliver Skipp, Ben Davies, Richarlison, Heung-Min Son, and Harry Kane.

Against this Tottenham Hotspur team, Southampton should have enough opportunities to score in this game, but one goal probably won’t be enough to avoid a loss.
