[Teams] Southampton vs Tottenham: Confirmed Line-Ups

By on December 28, 2016

Tottenham Hotspur are under pressure to secure all three points when they take on Southampton at St Mary’s Stadium this evening.

Mauricio Pochettino must once again make do without Toby Alderweireld as the centre-back misses out on the chance to face his former side due to a back injury. Eric Dier therefore continues alongside Jan Vertonghen at the back.

Mousa Dembele does return as he replaces Harry Winks in midfield while Moussa Sissoko starts alongside Dele Alli and Christian Eriksen in attack. Vincent Janssen makes his return to the squad after recovering from an ankle injury but he’s on the bench as Harry Kane once again leads the line up front.

Here are the confirmed line-ups:

Southampton

Forster, Cedric, Van Dijk, Fonte, Bertrand, Ward-Prowse, Davis, Romeu, Boufal, Redmond, Rodriguez.

Subs: Taylor, Yoshida, Long, Tadic, Martina, Reed, Hojbjerg.

Tottenham

Lloris, Walker, Dier, Vertonghen, Rose, Wanyama, Dembele, Sissoko, Eriksen, Dele, Kane.

Subs: Vorm, Davies, Wimmer, Winks, Nkoudou, Son, Janssen
