Southampton

Last updated: Sat 25 January 2020 08:38
In Brief

League form great for some time – (W5 D1 L1). Valery and 2 others sidelined. Bednarek and Cedric also ruled out.

Looking Back

Southampton moved in top half of table after achieving 5 wins and just 1 defeat in last 7 rounds. The latest success impressive 2:0 away victory vs. Crystal Palace on Tuesday in which Redmond was the star of the show with goal and assist.

Saints started 2020 with 1:0 home league win vs. Tottenham and they are now unbeaten in last 3 home matches vs. Lilywhites (W2 D1).

Looking Ahead

Coach Hasenhuttl used mostly kids in previous FA Cup round, but now he is likely to select much stronger squad. Fact that top scorer Ings was rested on Tuesday suggests that he will lead attack from the off.

Valery still missing sick, while Cedric, Vestergaard and Long sustained injuries in midweek and siting out. Bednarek failed late fitness test.

Tottenham Hotspur

In Brief

FA Cup last realistic chance to win trophy this season. Form not good post-Christmas. Kane and 3 others sidelined. Eriksen close to leaving. Winks doubtful.

Looking Back

Stopped 4-game winless run in league (D2 L2) on Wednesday with extremely fortunate 2:1 home win vs. bottom-dwellers Norwich. Spurs outplayed in this match and once again link between lines was poor.

In FA Cup also unconvincing and lucky to go past lower league team of Middlesbrough after replay and narrow 2:1 home win.

Looking Ahead

Coach Mourinho saw Winks hurting his ankle in midweek and this likely to see him sit out this one. Eriksen also could be missing as he edges closer to move to Italy.

Top scorer Kane, Sissoko and Davies remain sidelined, but Ndombele ready to return from injury.

Recently signed Gedson could make his full debut in this game.
