Spurs can win their 12th away game of the season in the top flight
Tottenham avoided a third Premier League defeat in a row last weekend when Harry Kane's second half penalty earned them a 1-1 draw with Arsenal in the North London derby. Hugo Lloris also saved an injury time penalty from Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang and Spurs followed that with a 1-0 win away to Borussia Dortmund. Mauricio Pochettino's side stood firm in the first half against Dortmund and then when the big chance fell to Kane early in the second half, he made no mistake.
Pochettino goes back to his former club Southampton and the Argentine will have to watch from the stand at St. Mary's due to his two match touchline ban. Spurs have dropped out of the title race and need to get back to winning ways because they are in danger of getting sucked into the battle for the Champions League places. Spurs still have to go to Liverpool and Manchester City so there's work to do even if Pochettino's men have the best away record in the league this season.
Ralph Hasenhuttl has picked up 18 points from 14 league games since he replaced Mark Hughes. The Saints put it up to Manchester United last Saturday but came away from Old Trafford empty handed after a 3-2 defeat. Southampton are without a win in their six home league games against Spurs since returning to the top flight in 2012. A 12th top-flight away win of the season for Spurs would be their most in a season since the 1984/85 season.
We'll have commentary from St. Mary's with Ian Beach and Gary Breen while Irish defender Damien Delaney will be this week's guest in the Boot Room. The current Waterford defender will be looking back on his time at Crystal Palace when he won a Championship Playoff final, reached an FA Cup final and scored in Palace's memorable 3-3 draw with Liverpool in 2014.
