Goals are tipped as Southampton host Tottenham in an FA Cup fourth round clash at St Mary’s Stadium. The Saints are one of the most improved teams at the moment, with Danny Ings driving the team forward and are set to hold their own against an inconsistent Spurs team.

Southampton Form

Southampton progressed to the fourth round of the FA Cup thanks to a 2-0 victory over Championship club Huddersfield Town. They were untroubled throughout with William Smallbone and Jake Vokins getting the goals.

The Saints head into Sunday’s match off the back of a 2-0 Premier League victory at Crystal Palace on Tuesday. Ralph Hasenhuttl’s men are certainly one of the form teams in England having suffered one defeat in their last eight matches.

Their superb form has been driven by the impressive Danny Ings who has 14 Premier League goals this season. The one criticism for Southampton is in defence, having kept just two clean sheets in their last 13 home matches.

Top scorer Danny Ings started on the bench at Selhurst Park and should start on Saturday. Jan Bednarek and Yann Valery remain sidelined for Southampton due to injury.

Tottenham Form

Tottenham needed a replay before seeing off Middlesbrough in the previous round. Having played out a 1-1 draw in the first fixture, goals from Giovanni Lo Celso and Erik Lamela earned them a 2-1 win at the London Stadium and a place in the fourth round.

Jose Mourinho’s men have drawn three of their last four away matches and have kept just two clean sheets in their last 12 away fixtures. They picked up their first win of 2020 with a 2-1 win over Norwich, Dele Alli and Son Heung-min were on target for Spurs.

Tottenham News

Captain Hugo Lloris made a return in midweek against Norwich and could feature again. Striker Harry Kane is out but Giovanni Lo Celso and Erik Lamela are both in contention to start after scoring in the previous round. New signing Gedson Fernandes is likely to feature in midfield.

Southampton vs Tottenham Head to Head

Tottenham have a 41-26 advantage against Soutampton with 19 draws from 86 previous matches. There has been BTTS in eight of the last nine meetings with both teams claiming two wins each in the last four fixtures.

Southampton earned a 1-0 victory when both teams met in a Premier League fixture at St Mary’s this season with Danny Ings getting the only goal.

At 1.60, William Hill has the best odds for BTTS which has been the outcome in eight of the last nine meetings.

Southampton produced over 4.5 goals in their last home fixture and a similar outcome is priced at 5.50. Over 3.5 goals is paying 2.75 while William Hill is offering 1.73 for over 2.5 goals.

Southampton vs Tottenham Match Up

Danny Ings will be the one to watch for Southampton having scored six goals in his last 10 appearances. He should have support from Nathan Redmond and Shane Long who have been among the goals lately.

Tottenham have multiple attacking threats with Lucas Moura, Son Heung-Min and Dele Alli. All three men often combine well and should give the Southampton defence a torrid day.
