If someone had told the Saints in the run up to the 2019/20 season that they were only one point behind the Champions League finalist Tottenham Hotspur after the sixth matchday and would have won as many as the Lilywhites, everyone involved would have bought it blind. That for the team of Ralph Hasenhüttl namely only for a yield of seven points and 13th place in the table, finally, nobody would have suspected in this context.
Tottenham vs Southampton Today’s Betting Odds and Predictions
In fact, the Spurs of these days are experiencing the worst season opener in the entire era of Mauricio Pochettino. Only a single victory under the last seven competitive matches is currently for the Londoners to book.
Despite this, Tottenham is the biggest favorite against Southampton in bookmaker odds, which is quite a notable rating. Finally, in the last one and a half weeks alone, there were three thoroughly sobering results.
A 1: 2 defeat in the league at Leicester City, a 2-2 draw in the premier class underdog Olympiakos Piraeus as well as the Out in the League Cup by penalty shootout at fourth division Colchester, which is definitely a factor in Tottenham against Southampton for the prediction.
Thus, the mood in the environment of the Lilywhites, who would have even missed the entry into international football after the current standings, could hardly be more tense. Accordingly, we believe Tottenham Hotspur Stadium may well have something to offer for the Saints, and tend to face Tottenham vs Southampton tip for a double chance X2.
Tottenham – Statistics & Current Form
That the Lilywhites have slipped so much into the crisis right now, is not really explainable. After all, for the first time in a few years, the well-rehearsed and closed team has started a veritable offensive on the transfer market. If in the past years only one or two new players were added to it – mostly supplementary players – in this summer the responsible persons spent about 115 million Euros on transfer fees alone.
Olympique Lyon’s Tanguy Ndombélé, Ryan Sessegnon of Fulham FC, Giovani Lo Celso of Betis Sevilla and Jack Clarke of Leeds United. All players with a lot of development potential, while only the departure of Kieran Trippier can be described as painful. Actors such as the 34-year-old Fernando Llorente finally had just as much a reserve role as, for example, Vincent Janssen, who had never been happy in London.
“We need time to rebuild the sense of togetherness needed to keep up with this level. […] We are in a difficult phase, but we are working on a solution. All we need is time. ” – Mauricio Pochettino at wionews.com
The starting positions of the Spurs are currently only marginally different from what was offered in the preseason, as the journey in the Champions League ended only in the final and in the Premier League at the end of a solid fourth place was booked. All the more mysterious is that the Lilywhites have evidently gotten out of hand.
Although coach Mauricio Pochettino emphasized in the interview that it was all a question of time, but in the context of the traditional London club rather the question arises, how much time the Argentine coach is still granted.
Although he has led the Spurs continuously into the premier class and has established in the top four England, Tottenham waits in the now more than five years of his term, still on another title.
All the more remarkable is that Tottenham against Southampton, according to odds of bookmakers in this match so much in the role of favorites. After all, an unprecedented coaching debate is booming these days and with Massimiliano Allegri out of work there seems to be a potential successor should the club bosses choose to prematurely terminate Pochettino’s contract until 2023.
For this discussion to disappear, only victories count. For example, Liverpool FC are already ten points behind at the top of the standings, with at least one starting point for the Champions League currently “only” three points away – also because teams like Arsenal FC in fourth place also have seven points in their first six games let lie.
Still, with only one win from their last seven competitive matches, the crisis at the Lilywhites is getting worse, which mentally is anything but easy for this home game against the Saints. The fact that keeper Lloris was missing last time with a thigh injury does not make the task easier.

Southampton – Statistics & Current Form
Also Southampton FC got a little lower than usual this summer in the purse. Converted about 60 million euros, the Saints invested in new players. A good third of it alone in Liverpool striker Danny Ings, for the Reds in the high-profile attack series was no more space.
In the Saints, however, the 26-year-old blooms through and through, marked his first goal of the season in the close 1: 2 home defeat to LFC and stung twice during the week in the explosive South Coast derby against arch-rivals Portsmouth FC, who crashed into third division in the 4-0 away win.
“We’ve seen how we can keep up and who’s capable of delivering a good game. That was also an important experience for me. I think it was a fantastic performance of all of Ingsy. ” – Ralph Hasenhüttl on the website of the association
Southampton FC are only 13th in the league table and have lost three league games, but they have lost only one defeat in their last six games of the season: a 3-1 defeat by Bournemouth last Friday.
After rollout with two defeats at the start, the Saints have recovered early, but are now facing the seminal phase in the season, in which it decides whether the trip is more likely to go up or down.
The gap is still in fourth place with only four points, while the lead on a relegation place is the other way around three points. It can still go in both directions, with a clear upward trend in terms of performance data. The Saints have also been defensively without conceding four goals in their last six competitive games, which makes them even more confident in the difficult away game in London.
In the end, of course, the current crisis of the Lilywhites plays a decisive role. But because betting odds are so attractive, at Tottenham Vs. Southampton in the tip to double the chance to find X2 most value.
