However, Sunday's hosts did walk away with all three points in their Premier League away outing two years ago at White Hart Lane.

Spurs enter the match in top form, unbeaten in five straight league games (4-0-1) since a 4-1 thrashing at the hands of Manchester City.

Mauricio Pochettino's side now sit fifth in the Premier League, three points off fourth-placed Liverpool, who take on Swansea away on Monday night.

Southampton need to win a game sooner rather than later.

"Maybe today if all is okay with him [Alderweireld] then tomorrow he can integrate himself in some exercise with the group and gradually build his fitness to be available again", Pochettino said.

Coutinho has left Liverpool, will Kane leave Spurs?

Southampton's primary source for goals, in a campaign that's seen them few and far between, is injured as Charlie Austin was ruled out of action for at least two months by Mauricio Pellegrino at the end of last month.

What's the Montreal Cognitive Assessment test Trump took?
The person believes the discrepancy may be why some Republican senators are denying having heard the president say "shithouse". Trump was said to have uttered "s-thole" during last Thursday's conversation in the Oval Office, a version backed up by Sen.

Kane nearly had the last word in stoppage time but his angled shot fired just wide of the far post and agonizingly out of reach of the leaping Lamela.

Southampton are winless in 10 league games are a point and a place above the relegation zone while Tottenham are fifth.

Spurs will be confident of victory on Sunday against Mauricio Pellegrino's struggling Saints side. The Argentine global found the ball at his feet five yards from goal, but he couldn't quite scoop his shot high enough over the sliding Stephens, who managed to block the shot right at the last second. Southampton are a mess at the moment, but they're a unsafe, wounded animal. He had only Vorm to beat from eight meters (yards) but skewed wide.

What's more, the Spurs hitman has enjoyed playing Southampton in recent seasons, bagging a hat-trick against the Saints on Boxing Day, as well as notching in his last two trips to St Mary's. Despite a number of quality crosses however, Gabbiadini often looked isolated up top, and this looks like a side crying out for a reliable and experience goal scorer.

Hugo Lloris and Christian Eriksen are absent through illness.

Even so, Tottenham can't afford to drop any points.

A horrid run of results has dragged Southampton into the bottom three but they came out fighting with a point to prove to their former boss.
