Southampton vs. Tottenham Match Analysis and Prediction

Two teams who started their 2020-21 season campaign with a loss will be looking to amend their form this weekend. Southampton plays host to side Tottenham this Sunday at the St. Mary’s Stadium with kickoff at 2 pm.

Mourinho received his first defeat through his lustrous career on an opening fixture of the Premier League. The side fell victim to a 1-0 loss to Everton. The lacklustre performance by the side left a bitter taste in the Chosen One’s mouth, who was quick to call out his squad for an ill display.

Tottenham fans are currently on a wave following rumours of the imminent return of Gareth Bale to the club. Bale remains frozen out of the Real Madrid squad after a falling off with Zinedine Zidane.  A return to Tottenham might be the spark the Wale’s international needs to revive his fainting career.

Another interesting rumour is with the arrival of Real Madrid’s left-back Reguilon, who has been on loan at Sevilla. Mourinho snatched the left-back from Manchester United, who were on the verge of signing the young sensation but contested over the buyback clause.

The Saints held an impressive 2019-20 campaign that saw the side led an eight-game unbeaten streak post-lockdown. It remains an uphill task for Ralph Hassenhult to replicate the performance after starting with a 1-0 loss to Crystal Palace.
