Tottenham Hotspur will clash heads with Southampton at St. Mary’s Stadium on Tuesday night as they look to continue their excellent form in the Premier League. Spurs managed to pick up an impressive 3-0 win over Crystal Palace in the London derby last weekend which will keep them in high spirits ahead of this game.

Antonio Conte will once again opt for a 3-4-2-1 formation and could keep changes to a minimum in midweek. Hence, we can expect to see Harry Kane spearhead the Tottenham attack while both Heung-min Son and Lucas Moura offer support to him in the Saints half.

3-4-2-1 Tottenham Hotspur Predicted Lineup To Face Southampton

Defence

Hugo Lloris will feature in between the sticks for Spurs after securing a clean sheet in his last league appearance. Conte will probably stick with the same back three of Davinson Sanchez, Eric Dier and Japhet Tanganga. Their main focus would be to stop the Southampton attackers from scoring in midweek.

Joe Rodon will provide cover for the centre-back positions on the Tottenham bench.

Midfield

Pierre-Emile Højbjerg and Oliver Skipp will function as the holding midfielders as they focus on breaking the opposition attacks down at the centre of the park.

Sergio Reguilon will operate as the left wing-back while Emerson Royal looks to catch the eye on the right flank.

As mentioned earlier, Heung-min Son and Lucas Moura will be given the freedom to express themselves in the final third as they look to prove their value just behind Harry Kane as Conte’s attacking midfielders.

Steven Bergwijn will have to be content with a place on the bench. He would have to wait for his chance to shine in the latter stages of the game if required.

Attack

Kane will lead the charge for Spurs up top. The English striker has scored in back-to-back games and would be hungry to find the back of the net once again when he laces up to face off against the Saints in midweek.

Dane Scarlett is out of action due to illness and might not be ready in time for this clash, so Conte won’t have any centre-forwards on his bench.
