We are on a roll, Southampton are languishing closer to the bottom three then the top six, which for them is a bit of disaster given how they’ve played in recent seasons. Their manager is under huge pressure and he’ll set up to try and grab a point, what they won’t do is turn up and try and play us man for man, system for system.
As always, we can’t take anything for granted, but I can’t see anything else but a Spurs win.
We are now beginning to look a bit like our old selfs and have accumulated 13 points from our last five Premier League games to claw our way back up to fifth place in the table; not where we wanted to be this time of the this season, but momentum appears to be building, our performance against Burnley aside from the missed chances was as comprehensive as win since our Liverpool win.
With Harry scoring his 35th Premier League goal in 2017 to make him one goal short of Shearer’s record tally for a calendar year , I think this will be the game that brings him home the record. Poch is happy, the diatribe coming from Rose has ended and may never be heard again in a Spurs shirt.
Poch will rotate and rightly so, but no matter what permutation I come up with all I can see is a tough game but one we get over the line with.
Southampton will like every other lower Premier league club who will raise their game for Wembley, but as long as we’ve avoided Turkey and all the trimmings, the only team I can see getting stuffed are Southampton.
4-0 win or 1-0 depending on whether we have re-found our clinical boots.
Hope by the time you read this you’ve all had a great xmas and are ready for the proper enjoyment – a boxing day feast of football.
