Tottenham vs Southampton – Spurs have been extremely busy this summer, making several key additions that have led many to label them as serious title contenders. Spurs have strengthened in crucial areas by strategically signing Antonio Conte-approved players.
Richarlison will give Harry Kane and Heung-Min Son a reliable backup up front, Yves Bissouma and Clement Lenglet should strengthen the team’s defensive showing, while Ivan Perisic and Djed Spence will be wonderful additions to Conte’s wing-back positions.
Spurs’ success this season is hardly a surprise, given their well-rounded roster. Remember that Conte has won six league crowns with different clubs. Will this be the year when he leads Spurs to victory and a championship?
On Matchday 1, the Lilywhites will host Southampton, who are currently in last place in the league. This is a fantastic opportunity for the team to get off to a winning start.
The opponents had a bad season last year and haven’t made many personnel changes. Ralph Hasenhuttl and the Rangers have added only Joe Aribo. Armando Broja left the Saints for Chelsea this summer.
