With London derby disappointment ringing in the ears of plenty following the frustrating 4-2 loss to Arsenal at the Emirates Stadium on Sunday afternoon, Tottenham Hotspur face a quick turnaround in the fixture list and this Wednesday we welcome Southampton to Wembley Stadium for the next clash.

With such a poor performance at the weekend, manager Mauricio Pochettino will be looking for far better once again especially as Southampton are a side significantly struggling themselves in the campaign of 2018/19 and even despite the Arsenal defeat, form is on our side (as long as there isn’t a hangover from the loss) and there will be questions asked if we can’t bounce back here.

We head into the game now in fifth place in the Premier League table joint on points with Arsenal, and third place is only a point away, so as long as we get back to winning ways the last match won’t define our season.

That’s what everyone will be hoping to see us do.

Erik Lamela and Kieran Trippier could be back in contention for this one as well.

  • Lets hope Siggy aint in anyone thoughts, been there, tried that, he hardly pulling trees at Everton, just like he didnt at Spurs..

    Seems like we will never lose that Spursy tag….

  • Ossie….I think a number of fans revel in the teams misfortunes, just look at the number of posts differences between losing or winning lol! got my hard hat on haha! COYS

    • PY, sorry mate, but I disagree to an extent and no need for the hard hat!

      There were already 3 pages of posts BEFORE even Sunday and now for tonight we are already on 3rd page, so have we lost the game already?! At times we only get about a dozen posts before the game.

      However, when we do lose and lose like we did on Sunday, especially after an overwhelming performance v Chelsea, it’s inevitable the inquest will go on much longer until there are signs of recovery and learning from mistakes. I’ll have a lot to say if Poch chooses to use the bench at 80 mins again and Hugo throws a few howlers along the way!

  • Frank – time to adjust to the Prem and being HK10’s back up and time to get fully fit. Hopefully he’s fit for January and can be given a chance for the rest of the season – Llorente ain’t the answer and I doubt we’ll be signing anyone else so we’ll have to go with Janssen. Lamela has done superbly this season and Sissoko is there or thereabout’s – so it just shows how things can turn around for players. Janssen looked talented and amazing all be it in a 2nd rate league and needs to discover that form again to see if he can make the step up or not. One’s hoping he could put in some shift’s in training and get going – let’s see what happens.

  • Ossie, etc we should be looking to players like Sessegnon and Cook to increase our contingency of England’s best young talent. Winks and Cook could be the England CM for year’s to come with Dier and Alli in there aswell. Zaha is another who should merit our attention even though plays for Ivory Coast – still considered home-grown. Wonder if we’ll try and sign anyone in January or wait until the summer……..!

  • El Jefe, I’d have a fit Jannsen over Llorente any day, seeing we don’t have any alternative. We don’t play route one football, so can’t fathom out why he was signed in the 1st place. Jannsen for me had always put a shift in and imo, he deserved just as much, if not more, time than Sissoko.

  • Wow PY!, Bang on the nose with your predicted line-up. Hope your score prediction comes true. Then you can PM me with the lottery numbers!

  • We need a better central midfield that Dier and Winks. Dier is an accident waiting to happen and Winks is too nervous. Hopefully we actually buy a decent player in January. And what the he’ll has happened to Dele, haven’t seen a player go that far backwards for quite some time.

  • Their goal looked offside but we still shouldn’t have conceeded as it doesn’t help our inferior goal difference. On that point, if were weren’t going to try to improve it (which looked like the case after going three up) then surely we should have given Kane a rest at 60 minutes or so.
