Mauricio Pochettino, the Tottenham manager, declined to disclose how Walker picked up the injury during his pre-match press conference today. I think the team fully deserves all the praise.
Goalkeeper Alex McCarthy, full-back Matt Targett and centre-half Virgil Van Dijk are still out injured.
Southampton: Forster, Cedric, Yoshida, Stephens, Bertrand, Davis, Romeu, Ward-Prowse, Tadic, Gabbiadini, Redmond.
Straight from the Saints chance, Spurs went down the other end and doubled their lead from the penalty spot. "It's a great chance for them". It was very happy to the spurs as they are in the track now.
"But I am going to just go for Tottenham, because at the moment they are playing some very good football, so I am going to go 3-1 to Tottenham".
Southampton are the last team to win at White Hart Lane (May 2016) and Pochettino is adamant his players deserve praise after surviving a second-half fightback to tighten their grip on second place. Both were "no brainer" signings: cheap, proven in the Premier League and in positions where Spurs needed to strengthen.
Puel began the season using a 4-4-2 diamond formation with an orthodox striker partnered by a winger, with the idea seemingly being to dominate the middle using four central midfielders while allowing for overloads in wide areas with the nominal second striker drifting wide to combine with the overlapping full-back. "I can not see the difference". Which was the 79 head to head among Tottenham and Southampton.
Tottenham Hotspur are in action for the fifth Sunday running as they welcome Southampton to White Hart Lane, aiming to strengthen their hold on second place in the Premier League table.
The South Coast outfit go into the weekend tenth in the table and having won their last two away games, scoring eight goals, so they are sure to make things hard for Pochettino's Spurs on Sunday.
Southampton have won their last two Premier League games, netting four goals in each clash. However, with a game in hand, defending an unbeaten home league record, the last nine of which have all ended in victories, the north Londoners prospects of securing a Champions League spot were well and truly on course.
Eriksen started the game in magnificent form and produced a stunning through ball for Son after three minutes, but Fraser Forster denied the forward from eight yards.
