Multi-talented Dele Alli could play as Tottenham's goalkeeper, jokes Mauricio Pochettino

  • Harry Kane

Spurs team-mate Jan Vertonghen hailed his side's good fortune as they continue to pressurise the leaders and look to cement Champions League football for next season.

It is expected that South Korean worldwide Son Heung-min will take the place of Kane for the visit of Southampton.

Paul Merson is backing Tottenham to continue their push towards a top-four finish in the Premier League by beating Southampton at White Hart Lane on Sunday. The striker's run of six goals in four Southampton appearances was brought to a shuddering halt. I've backed Everton and Millwall to keep things close in Tottenham's last two home games but the sensational form from Mauricio Pochettino's men at White Hart Lane hasn't slowed down.

How can we expect Spurs to perform with Son leading the line though?

Tottenham have won ten home Premier League games on the bounce - a club record.

Ryan Bertrand's left wing cross should have been cleared by Spurs centre-back Toby Alderweireld, but the ball found its way to Ward-Prowse who finished well at the far post after taking a touch.

Sensex at 2-year high, Nifty hits new peak on Fed move
Tata Steel surged 4.30 per cent amid reports that the company will finalise decision on United Kingdom business merger by May. The broader Nifty closed on Friday at an all-time high while the Sensex is only 350 points away from its historic high.

It was an examination that Spurs passed, demonstrating a clinical edge in the first-half and then riding ripples of Southampton pressure in the second-half.

Saints manager Claude Puel expects the pair to be flying at White Hart Lane on the back of their maiden global calls. Pochettino believes that the Spurs underperformed in September because of the fact that the players were exhausted after the Euro Competition. The last time the Spurs suffered a loss at home was when Southampton visited the London side in May of previous year. Their wingers and full-backs are very useful attacking tools: only Swansea have made more chances with crosses this season, while only Swansea and Crystal Palace have had more headed attempts on goal.

Meanwhile, Southampton hadn't played for 15 days - since winning 4-3 at Watford - and were eyeing revenge against Spurs, who had triumphed 4-1 in the previous meeting on December 28.

"Many players struggle to handle that role". It is noticeable that the Saints have significantly improved over the last period, but we will see if it is going to be enough on Sunday afternoon.

Alli hit his 14th league goal of the season from the spot after being fouled by Steven Davis midway through the first half.
