Mauricio Pochettino will be looking for his Tottenham Hotspur players to return to winning ways tomorrow when Southampton are the visitors to North London.

Tottenham Hotspur have won seven of their last eight home Premier League matches against Southampton (W7 D0 L1), losing the other 2-1 in May 2016.

Southampton are looking to win consecutive Premier League matches against Tottenham for the first time since winning three in a row between January 2003 and March 2004.

Tottenham have lost 10 of their 24 Premier League games so far in 2019, their most in a single calendar year in the competition since 2014 (12/38). Of ever-present sides over the two seasons, only Brighton (13), Watford (12) and Bournemouth (11) have lost more Premier League games this year than Spurs.

Southampton are looking to win three consecutive away top-flight games for the first time since February 2015 (a run of four), while the last time they did so without conceding was in April 1992.

Tottenham’s last eight Premier League victories have been in home games – they last had a longer run of wins coming exclusively at home between April 2000-January 2001 (10).

Southampton have lost more Premier League matches against their former managers than any other club (18 in total), with a third of those coming from Mauricio Pochettino (6).
