King Power Stadium will be packed to capacity on Saturday 28th September 2019 when Tottenham hosts Southampton in what is expected to be an entertaining match of this weekend. Spurs were more than unfortunate last weekend when their goal was ruled out giving Leicester City an opportunity to sail through and score 2 goals to make it 2-1. Therefore, Tottenham is hoping to return on the winning ways on Saturday. This match is scheduled to start at 15:00GMT.
Tottenham had to endure a 2-1 loss to Leicester despite their early lead. They had managed a double from their Korean attacker, Son in the 65th minute. However, the goal was ruled-out due to off-side. Things turned ugly for them when Leicester City scored a double in the remaining minutes thus denying them 3 points. This Saturday offers them the chance to revenge on their loss in order to remain in the title race.
Southampton, on the other hand, had all sorts of problems with their defense last week in their 3-1 home loss to Bournemouth in front of their home fans. However, they rose beyond their defeat to win against Portsmouth 0-4 in the Carabao Cup on Tuesday night.
The capital club is keen to return to the winning ways after last week’s setback. Seeing that Southampton showed signs of a porous defense, Harry Kane and company are prepared to wave through to record 3 crucial points on Saturday. In their last meeting in London, Tottenham won 3-1.
