Southampton vs Tottenham Kick Off Time
NAME: Southampton – Tottenham Hotspur
DATE: 18 Mar 2023
TIME: 15:00 UTC
VENUE: St. Mary’s Stadium, Southampton, England
Two sides striving for three points for entirely different reasons meet at St Mary’s on Saturday afternoon, as Southampton host Tottenham Hotspur in the Premier League.
Ruben Selles’s basement-dwellers were put to the sword 2-0 by Brentford in midweek, while the Lilywhites most recently cruised past Nottingham Forest 3-1 last weekend.
Tottenham Hotspur manager Antonio Conte should receive an injury boost with Emerson Royal for Saturday’s Premier League meeting with Southampton at St Mary’s.
A knock kept the right-back out of last weekend’s comfortable win over Nottingham Forest, but he will likely shake off the problem in time to make himself available for the trip south.
Yves Bissouma, Hugo Lloris, Ryan Sessegnon and Rodrigo Bentancur, on the other hand, remain absent, and proving his fitness may not be enough for Emerson to regain his spot in the XI.
The Brazilian noticeably raised his level after Pedro Porro’s arrival, but the latter has seemingly cemented his spot in the team and should feel confident of bombing down the flank from the first whistle.
With Conte surely seeing no need to alter a winning formula, Ben Davies could keep Ivan Perisic at bay on the other side, as Oliver Skipp and Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg link arms in the midfield.
Cristian Romero, Eric Dier and Clement Lenglet should also form an unchanged defensive barrier in front of Fraser Forster, who was largely at fault for Joe Worrall’s consolation last weekend before saving a last-minute Andre Ayew penalty.
Harry Kane’s brace last weekend saw the England captain bring up 20 Premier League goals in a single season for the sixth time, and the striker ought to be supported by Son Heung-min and Richarlison once more.
A solitary goal for Son this weekend would mark his 100th in the Premier League – a feat yet to be achieved by an Asian player – while Richarlison remains without a top-flight goal for Spurs but has netted a personal high five goals against Southampton in the division.
