Tottenham interim manager Tim Sherwood has said that he expects a “very, very tough” game at Southampton.
Spurs travel to face Saints on Sunday with just three points between the two sides. Southampton have been one of the surprise packages this season in the Premier League and Tottenham will be looking to bounce back from the awful Capital One Cup defeat to West Ham on Wednesday evening.
Sherwood told the press at the weekly press conference: “(Southampton manager Mauricio) Pochettino has come in there and it seems like, at the moment, he’s taken it on. But it’s still early days for him and it’s going to be a very tough game down there. We know what to expect from Southampton. He’s got his team playing a very high press game, quick tempo, lot of young, good English players down there. We know it’s going to be very, very tough for us.”
