Harry Winks will also face a late fitness test for Tottenham, owing to concerns over a groin problem. Kieran Trippier, who also missed out against Borussia Dortmund on Tuesday, is expected to be absent because of strained gluteals.

Opta stats
Since their return to the Premier League in 2012, Southampton are winless in their six home league games against Spurs (D2 L4). They'd won their previous five against them before that run.
Tottenham have lost just one of their last 13 Premier League meetings with Southampton (W10 D2), scoring at least once in all 13 games.
Southampton have won three of their seven Premier League home games under manager Ralph Hasenhüttl (D1 L3), as many as they had in their previous 24 combined at St Mary's under Mauricio Pellegrino and Mark Hughes (W3 D11 L10).

Tottenham have lost their last two away league games, the same number they'd lost in their previous 13 on the road (W11 D0 L2). They've only lost three in a row on the road under Mauricio Pochettino once before (November 2017).

Southampton have lost more points from winning positions than any other side in the Premier League this season (20).

Mauricio Pochettino has never lost away at former club Southampton in the Premier League (W2 D2) - only Harry Redknapp (five games against West Ham) has had a longer unbeaten away run against a specific side he's formerly managed in the competition.
Spurs striker Harry Kane has scored in each of his last four Premier League meetings with Southampton, netting six goals in total. He's also scored in each of his last three against them at St Mary's Stadium.
