Southampton welcomes Tottenham Hotspur in a match from the 30th round of the Premier League.
It’s not an easy situation for Southampton at the moment. The Saints are currently 17th in the league standings with 27 points won, being just 2 points above the 18th Cardiff City and the relegation zone. The team surely needs to be as good as possible until the end of the season in order to guarantee itself survival.
In their last five games in the league Southampton won only once, made one draw and suffered three losses. One of these losses came in the last round against Manchester United. The Saints were close to winning a point, but they suffered a dramatic 2-3 loss at the Old Trafford. Romelu Lukaku scored a late winner for United in the 88th minute. Before this Yann Valery and James Ward-Prowse scored in David de Gea’s net.
Meanwhile Tottenham are 3rd in the Premier League standings with 61 points won so far. Spurs have a record of 20 wins, 1 draw and 8 losses in their games so far. Right now Tottenham have 3 points advantage in front of the 4th Manchester United.
In the previous round Tottenham made their first draw for the season. It happened in the big derby of North London against Arsenal. The game at the Wembley ended with a 1-1 draw. Aaron Ramsey opened the score for the Gunners, but Harry Kane equalised for Spurs from a penalty kick.
During the week Tottenham had a game in the Champions League as well. Spurs managed to beat Borussia Dortmund for a second time, qualifying for the 1/4-finals of the competition.
That’s what we had to say about the Premier League game between Southampton and Tottenham at the St. Mary’s. Good luck!
