On January 1st, as a part of the English Premier League, Southampton will welcome the visit of Tottenham Hotspur.
Spurs are finally recovering after home defeat from Chelsea on December 23. On the 26th of December they had a home victory over Brighton and Hove Albion (2:1) and an away draw with Norwich City (2:2) three days later. It is worth mentioning that in recent matches Tottenham scored twice in the second half. Just some interesting stats to keep in mind. Despite quite decent games lately, Spurs dropped one place in the Premier League table and is currently on the 6th place.
This team from the self-titled town in the southeast of England cannot brag about high place in the standings. Now Southampton occupies 15th place. This December, however, turned out to be quite successful for the team: 2 losses and 4 victories. Two latest games away were especially interesting. On December 21 Southampton had a win over Aston Villa (1:3). Aston Villa is on the 18 place in the table and is not the most dangerous opponent. But on the 26th of December Southampton had a shocking victory over Chelsea, which is currently on the 4th place (0:2). Two days later the match against Crystal Palace ended in a draw (1:1) Prediction Southampton play as if they have no fear. They are not afraid to attack, and they are capable of scoring even against such grands as Chelsea.
