Team News
Ex-Tottenham right-back Kyle Walker-Peters came off with a kick to the hamstring last time out, but he has seemingly recovered and will likely strut his stuff against his former employers.

Fellow full-back Valentino Livramento remains out of contention alongside Juan Larios, while Arsenal loanee Ainsley Maitland-Niles is still nursing a knock and will also need a once-over, potentially limiting Selles's right-back options further.

Further forward, neither Mohamed Elyounoussi nor Kamaldeen Sulemana cut the mustard in midweek, so Theo Walcott - hardly a favourite of Tottenham fans - ought to be in contention for a recall.
Southampton possible starting lineup:
Bazunu; Walker-Peters, Bednarek, Bella-Kotchap, Perraud; Ward-Prowse, Lavia; Walcott, Alcaraz, Sulemana; Onuachu

As for Spurs, the long-term quartet of Hugo Lloris, Yves Bissouma, Rodrigo Bentancur and Ryan Sessegnon all remain absent, while there is also a question mark hanging over the head of Emerson Royal, who has been battling a knock.

The Brazilian should have a strong chance of coming back here, but Pedro Porro has seemingly cemented his place in the XI since Emerson's purple patch came to an end, while Richarlison should certainly hold the fort up front again, having improved his self-confessed "s***" fortunes with a stellar showing against Forest.

The stage is seemingly set for Richarlison to finally break his Premier League duck for Spurs, as the Brazilian has five goals against the Saints in the Premier League - a personal high - while Son Heung-min is one away from bringing up a century of English top-flight goals.
Tottenham Hotspur possible starting lineup:
Forster; Romero, Dier, Lenglet; Porro, Hojbjerg, Skipp, Davies; Richarlison, Kane, Son
Prediction: Southampton 0-1 Tottenham Hotspur
