English Premier League 2019/20 is in full swing and Tottenham will face Southampton at home on September 28th. 22Bet, one of the new bet companies in Kenya, offers a closer look and a prediction for the game on Saturday.
After their great Champions League season, Tottenham is experiencing a disappointing trend. They have won just once in the past six games, failing to secure their lead. This might change this weekend, however, as they meet Southampton on their turf.
Pocchettino’s team has suffered another loss when they met with Leicester City. Despite Harry Kane’s effort and a goal in the first half, they had conceded in the second half and lost 2-1.
Southampton wasn’t so lucky either, considering their 1-3 defeat at home in a game with Bournemouth, with the only goal coming from James Ward-Prose’s penalty.
Mauricio Pocchettino’s main issue might be Hugo Lloris’ absence, as his potential replacements in the form of Paul Gazzaniga, Christian Eriksen or Delle Alli are rather unconvincing. Nevertheless, the teams’ flexible formations and an expected aggressive playing style with talented midfielders will likely influence the game for the better.
The best chance for Ralph Hassenhutl’s team is to employ defensive 4-5-1 or 5-4-1 formations and then swiftly move to counter-attack, with which Newcastle has previously defeated the Spurs.
Tottenham vs Southampton Prediction
Tottenham is desperately looking for a victory after losing in the last two games and the audience at home should certainly help them in that. Therefore, we can expect a solid victory from Tottenham on Saturday, with 2 or 3 goals scored from their players.
