With Tottenham Hotspur fans hopefully enjoying a good Christmas Day, it was a Boxing Day to savour as we comfortably (albeit not perfectly) put Crystal Palace to the sword with a 3-0 victory at White Hart Lane thanks to efforts from Harry Kane, Lucas Moura and Son Heung-Min.
With a crammed fixture list, we are back in action on Tuesday afternoon as we make the trip to St Mary’s Stadium to face Ralph Hassenhuttl’s Southampton side. The Saints are in mixed form really, only one win and one loss with three draws in their five matches, but again, as long as we are firing on all cylinders this should be another semi-decent three points for Antonio Conte.
That, of course, does depend on what kind of squad Conte can put out. Cristian Romero and Ryan Sessegnon remain out and Giovani Lo Celso is rated as doubtful, but with the current Covid state of affairs and games already postponed, we’ll have to wait for the morning tests to see who (and how many) are cleared to play.
