Predicted Tottenham XI to face Southampton on New Years Day

Tottenham Hotspur face Southampton on New Years Day as they look to bounce back from that disappointing draw against Norwich City this week.

Spurs went behind twice at Carrow Road, and although they managed to rescue a point via Eriksen and Kane goals, they wasted a chance to break into the top four.

With a match against Liverpool coming up after the Saints, a win on January 1st is more important than ever to keep the Mourinho momentum going.

I believe that Gazzaniga will start in goal again, with a standard back four of Vertonghen, Alderweireld, Sanchez, and Aurier.

Ndombele earns his second start in a week after that performance against Norwich, while Winks returns from suspension to join him.

Sissoko also returns from a ban to line up on the right side of an attack that includes Dele Alli, Lucas Moura, and Harry Kane. Heung Min Son still has one more match to sit out in his suspension.
