Spurs produced their biggest win of the season at the weekend downing Man City 2-0 at home, with second half goals from Stevie Bergwijn and Heung Min Son their first two shots of the match.
The Citizens were wasteful with their 18 shots in the game, while a red card to Oleksandr Zinchenko on the hour mark was the catalyst for the downfall.
The Saints fell victim to a second half onslaught from runaway leaders Liverpool. They may have felt hard done having had a penalty shout waved away in the build up to the Reds’ first, though they can have now complaints about being ripped apart from then on in.
Ralph Hasenhuttl would have been pleased with the opening half from his men and will want to focus on replicating that performance here, though he’ll be up against it with Spurs starting to look more Mourinho-esque.
Spurs To Win And Both Teams To Score
Indeed, having seen an average of four goals per game across his opening 10 in charge, that average has plummeted to just 1.75 across the subsequent eight.
Over his tenure they’ve now won seven of nine home games, only losing to Chelsea and Liverpool, so they look well priced to qualify here.
What’s more, the ‘Special One’ is a serial winner and has a fantastic record in domestic cups. He’s won either this competition or the League Cup five times across his career and has a 65% win percentage over 90 minutes from his 68 such matches.
Coupling that record with Spurs’ current run on their own patch, it’s hard to look past the hosts considering this is their most realistic chance for silverware this season.
Despite the improvement of last season’s Champions League finalists, they’ve still not been perfect at the back and have kept just two clean sheets in their past 13 games.
The exceptions came against second-from-bottom Watford and at the weekend as Man City missed a penalty and a couple of guilt-edged chances, so we’re not convinced by the shutout.
The south coast side aren’t exactly slouches in the final third either seeing as they’ve scored in nine of their last 10 matches, with the exception coming against Liverpool at the weekend.
Spurs To Beat Southampton 2-1
In fact, Southampton haven’t failed to score in back-to-back matches since October 2018, so the both teams to score market looks well worth a punt, and we’re looking to couple it with a win for Mourinho’s men considering Spurs’ current home form.
In fact, four of their past five victories home or away have finished 2-1, while they were fortunate to keep a clean sheet in that exception in their last match so the correct score holds appeal too.
