Stan Collymore predicts Tottenham v Southampton
By Harvey Byrne
Stan Collymore has tipped Tottenham to beat Southampton 2-1 in their Premier League clash on Sunday afternoon.
Claude Puel’s side will travel to England’s capital as the last team to have beat Spurs at White Hart Lane with a 2-1 win in May.
But, when the two clubs met in December the outcome was entirely different as Tottenham ran out emphatic 4-1 winners at St Mary’s Stadium.
Now, Collymore believes it will be closer this time around, predicting just a one goal difference to settle the scoreline on his personal Twitter account on Friday afternoon.
West Ham 1 Leicester 1
Bournemouth 2 Swansea 2
Boro 0 Man United 2
Spurs 2 Southampton 1
Man City 2 Liverpool 2

Both clubs will be without their star players with Harry Kane falling to a recent ankle injury, while defender Virgil van Dijk has been out since January, also with an ankle problem.

There is currently a massive 23 points and eight places between Tottenham and Southampton in the Premier League table.
Additionally, Spurs’ fantastic home form which has seen them pick up 38 points from their 14 league games means they are going in as strong favourites.
But, Southampton do possess a dangerous weapon in January signing Manolo Gabbiadini, who has bagged a fine six goals in his first four outings for the club.
In other Tottenham news, Spurs fans on Twitter have urged Mauricio Pochettino to start this forward against the Saints on Sunday.
