Bet of the Day: Tottenham to blunt sorry Southampton at St Mary’s
Nick Murphy | 21 January 2018
Visitors are in good form
Tottenham Hotspur face Southampton this afternoon as they look to extend their six-match unbeaten run.
Spurs have lost just once since the start of December.
That sequence has seen them move to within touching distance of the Champions League spots and into the fourth round of the FA Cup.
Their impressive form has been built on a solid defensive line. Mauricio Pochettino’s side have kept three clean sheets in their last four matches.
Against a Saints team who struggle in front of goal, the Coral News Team are expecting the visitors to claim the spoils with ruthless efficiency.
Kane at the double
Harry Kane loves playing against Southampton. The England ace hit a hat-trick against the Saints on Boxing Day to extend his good run against the South Coast club.
The 24-year-old has now hit five goals in four matches against Mauricio Pellegrino’s men.
Spurs will strike early
Tottenham tend to strike early against the Saints. They’ve taken the lead inside 30 minutes in three of their last four fixtures against today’s opponents.
Pochettino’s men have also had the lead at the half-hour mark in four of their last five matches. It’s 2/1 they continue that run this afternoon.
