Spurs are on a winless run of four matches in all competitions and come into this game after being held to a 2-2 draw against Benfica at the Stadium of Light in the second leg of Europa League last-16 fixture.

With a 3-1 deficit from the first-leg, Tim Sherwood's side trailed 1-0 with Ezequiel Garay scoring in the first half for the home side.

However, the north Londoners took the lead courtesy of Nacer Chadli's quick-fire brace in the second half. But the Portuguese outfit progressed to the quarterfinals with an aggregate score of 5-3 after Lima netted a penalty late in the game.

In their last league fixture, Spurs lost 1-0 in the north London derby with Tomas Rosicky netting the solitary goal for Arsenal in the first two minutes of the match.

The result leaves Tottenham with 53 points from 30 matches in sixth spot; nine points behind fourth placed Gunners in the league table.

Meanwhile, Southampton registered a 4-2 victory in their previous league fixture against Norwich City at the St Mary's Stadium. Morgan Schneiderlin's first half goal, followed by Rickie Lambert and Jay Rodriguez's goals in the second half gave the Saints a 3-0 lead.

But, Johan Elmander and Robert Snodgrass reduced the deficit to just one goal after scoring in the 85th and 86th minute respectively. Then Sam Gallagher came off the bench for the Saints to net the final goal of the game late in injury time to make it 4-2.

Mauricio Pochettino's side now sit ninth in the league table with 45 points from 30 matches, six adrift of seventh placed Manchester United.

The Saints have witnessed an inconsistent season so far, which once saw them stand among the top four in the table. Spurs on the other hand are desperately eyeing a place in the Champions League and have only one pending fixture against teams above them in the league table i.e. Liverpool, in their eight remaining league games.

What Managers Say

Tim Sherwood: "Southampton have good, young English players and a good playing system but we want them to worry about us and we'll go for it. Between now and the end of the season we're going to have a real go. They have quality all over the field, they don't just rely on that front three. They have 11 players out there who have done well over the season. As I said though, it must be all about us."

Mauricio Pochettino: "We know that it's going to be a different game so it will be a completely different contest with a different team. I think Spurs are going to be a completely different side to the one that played against Benfica last night in the Europa League. The Tottenham squad is quite plentiful, they have a few players and we expect a really tough game on Sunday."
