Overview

Tottenham get back to action for the first time since their title challenge was put to an end by Chelsea on Monday night. The Blues came from two-goals behind to secure a 2-2 draw thus handing the Premier League to Leicester City, in what was a fiery affair with a number of confrontations. Both teams have been handed out sanctions by the FA, with Mousa Dembele getting a six-game ban for his attempted eye gouge on Diego Costa.

The north London club will need to get their emotions back in order and prepare for the visit of Southampton, who are riding high following their 4-2 win over Manchester City in their previous encounter at the St Mary's Stadium on 1 May. Mauricio Pochettino has lauded his Spurs team for their performance thus far this campaign despite failing to win the title and believes they are keen to keep second place, which they can secure with a win over Ronald Koeman's side.

The Saints, on the other hand, are battling West Ham United for a place in the Europa League next season, and they are currently two points behind having played a game more than the Hammers. Koeman will be keen to end the season strongly and they will be eager to pile on the misery on their former manager.

On the injury front, both teams have fully fit squads to choose from, but Tottenham will be without two key midfielder's Mousa Dembele and Dele Alli due to their current FA bans for violent conduct.

What Managers Say:

Mauricio Pochettino: We have the same desire to play the next two games. We want to keep second place in the table and nothing has changed for us. To finish in the top four is fantastic for us as this was our goal from the start of the season. Maybe we feel disappointed as it was a good chance to win the Premier League title, but for the way we fought and how the season was, we need to feel proud of our players.

Ronald Koeman: "Everybody is fit and everybody is available. The team is full of confidence. We don't have injuries and the team is working hard, keeping the belief to reach and fight for Europe. We're still in charge of that. Some teams play fantastic football. One of them is Tottenham and one of them is Southampton."
