Tottenham Hotspur team news: Predicted XI v Southampton in Premier League clash

8 May

Listen to Tottenham against Southampton live on talkSPORT, from 13:30(BST) on Sunday, May 8.

Tottenham were no angels against Chelsea on Monday, chalking up nine bookings, and they will now be without Mousa Dembele for their clash with the Saints after his eye-gouging antics.

The Belgian midfielder – like most of Mauricio Pochettino’s squad – lost his cool and, as a result, Spurs could only draw 2-2 with the Blues after Eden Hazard’s late equaliser.

This put the Premier League title in Leicester City’s hands and also leaves Tottenham sweating on a second-placed finish.

A point would guarantee them Champions League group stage spot, but a victory would, barring a big goal difference swing, confirm them as runners-up.

So who will Pochettino turn to for the all-important clash, with Dembele and Dele Alli out (suspended) and Nabil Bentaleb still absent with a knee problem?
