Tottenham vs Southampton: FA Cup preview

Tottenham vs Southampton: FA Cup preview

Tottenham and Southampton once again face off for a place in the fifth round of the FA Cup.

Spurs looked to be heading through as they led 1-0 at St Mary’s thanks to a Heung-min Son goal, but Sofiane Boufal’s late strike earned Ralph Hasenhuttl’s Saints a replay.

Neither side particularly wanted a replay given it cuts into their winter break, but Mourinho is desperate to win a trophy in his first season in charge and will surely go all out for the win.

Date: Wednesday, February 5th, 2020

Venue: Tottenham Hotspur Stadium, north London

Kick-off time: 7:45pm GMT

Prediction: Tottenham 2-1 Southampton

The visitors are on the up as they turned around their relegation form to climb seven points clear of the drop zone.

Still, survival is Southampton’s main aim, and Spurs – full of confidence after beating Manchester City 2-0 at the weekend – have the bodies to rotate and seal a (tight) win
