Tottenham Hotspur vs. Southampton – EPL Round 29

Tottenham Hotspur v Southampton

The win extends Tottenham's club-record run of successive home Premier League wins to 10, the same number of points by which they trail leaders Chelsea. Dele Alli can always surprise you.

"He has an unbelievable personality and character and everything is possible with him". "I knew him in Holland and I've spoken to two players who played there with him every day and who play in the national team and they are confident of his abilities and so am I".

And Pochettino told his postmatch news conference he believed the England worldwide has the instincts of a centre-forward in the penalty area, adding: "Dele Alli can always surprise you".

The Denmark midfielder first played Heung-Min Son through on goal with an inch-perfect pass, only to see Kane's replacement foiled by a strong save from Southampton goalkeeper Fraser Forster.

Ryan Bertrand can play both left-back and left wing-back and has started a Champions League final, making the 27-year-old a more suitable deputy for Danny Rose than Ben Davies, while Virgil van Dijk would be the ideal centre-half to spark competition in Pochettino's three-man defence.

Pochettino said that Alli's intelligence meant that he could play more than one role.

Despite Southampton being deadly in front of goal in recent outings, the statistics suggest a home win today, as Spurs are still yet to lose a home league games this season.

"He's very positive and that is good, but at the same time we need to be careful with his injury".

Mauricio Pochettino is bidding to steer Tottenham back into the top four this season after the Lilywhites ended up third in the table last season.

"If the referee gives a penalty for their second goal then he needed to give a penalty for us", Puel said. "I can not see the difference".

Gabbiadini will now miss Italy's games this global break because of his groin injury.

But the visitors couldn't build on that and Puel added: "The second half was better because we recovered well".

Southampton has had enough time to rest and prepare well for this contest, after seeing the pitch for the last time back on March 4, against Watford, when they celebrated a crucial 3:4 win. "It's true it's a hard task for us to find in the English market the right profile or player to add".
