Tottenham Hotspur will be looking to maintain their slim chance of finishing in the top four of the Premier League this season with victory over Southampton away from home this afternoon.

Meanwhile, Southampton find themselves seventh in the league standings with 56 points from 33 games and are in the running for a Europa League spot.

Ronald Koeman’s side will be looking to return to winning ways this afternoon, having lost 2-1 to Stoke City away from home at the Britannia Stadium last weekend.

It promises to be an exciting game at St. Mary’s Stadium, and this is how Southampton and Tottenham will line up:
