Last weekend, Tottenham beat Brighton 3:1 at home and qualified for the FA Cup last 16.
Southampton also impressed us by reaching the last 16 of the FA Cup. The team met with Coventry City from the Champion's League. This meeting was quite tricky for the Saints, who scored the decisive goal only in extra time - 2:1. The club's last opponent in the EPL was Manchester City. For the second time in the current campaign, Ralf Hasenhüttl's squad earned points from the leader - a 1:1 draw. With 25 points, Southampton is in 12th place in the standings.

Expert Betting Tips
Tottenham has good statistics in recent home games against Southampton. In addition, the Saints themselves still can't improve the game in the away game. Here is an interesting statistic: Tottenham is the only team in the current EPL campaign, which had not lost a single point at home (six wins) when considered the clear favorites, according to bookmakers. I believe that Antonio Conte's charges will extend this streak. Tottenham still has a great chance to compete with Liverpool and Chelsea for second place. Southampton will once again fail to score in the capital.
