Tottenham Hotspur will look to get back to their best this weekend as they take on Southampton in the Premier League.

Spurs have dropped eight points from their last three matches alone, and are in desperate need of picking up some wins if they are to qualify in the top four this season.

Tottenham still sit in third place, but the likes of Chelsea, Man United, and Arsenal are lurking just behind, and each is determined to book their place in the Champions League next year.

Spurs will be hoping that the Champions League can give them a domestic boost, after the club qualified for the quarter finals on Tuesday night.

However, there was some bad news, as Mauricio Pochettino received news he would be subjected to a two match touchline ban after his coming together with Mike Dean last month.

The Argentine boss implied he may appeal the ban once he receives the letter from the FA.

He said (Football London): “I think we are waiting after Wednesday the letter from the FA but it’s still not arrived. I’m so curious to see why they decided to do what they did. (A) two game ban is completely unfair and I want to see why and then talk a bit more.

“Of course the players want the coach or the manager on the touchline and it’s much better for communication but I have Jesus, Toni, Miki plenty of staff who can translate the same ideas and make the communication easier. Always in football that happens around the world. I trust my people and the players are mature enough to perform in the way that we prepare or want to play.”
