SOU Vs TOT Dream11 Team Probable Playing 11 And Match Report: Invigorated Southampton look to capitalise on a regressing Tottenham defence today.
Climbing all the way to 15th place in the Premier League, Southampton’s ascendancy in the marquee league has been the fruit of the rigorous and vigorous efforts. From a point where nothing was going right for them to scraping their way out of the relegation zone, Southampton find themselves unbeaten in the last three matches in the league.
Drawing their most recent outing 1-1 against Crystal Palace as they restored parity in the culminating stages of the encounter, Southampton will be looking to keep their reinvigoration going string when they take to the pitch today. The side make an advent into gameweek 21 squaring off against Tottenham, a club which they know they can salvage something against.
It’s all down to the defensive vulnerabilities of Tottenham, something which saw them just about squirm their way through to a 2-2 draw against Norwich City the last time around. The result refrained Tottenham from trying to move close to the top 4, a display which alluded to why this has been such a wavering season for the club.
With Tottenham failing to address their grievances in defence and Southampton revitalised, this clash is set to be a closely contested affair. Both sides will go at loggerheads ith Tottenham’s superior attacking players seeing the club scram through to the three points on the day.

SOU Vs TOT Dream11 Goal-Keeper
Paulo Gazzaniga has had a mixed time in between the sticks this season but he managed to pull off some solid saves against Norwich City to see us rope in the Tottenham man for this imminent encounter.
SOU Vs TOT Dream11 Defenders
We have given Tottenham’s entire backline a skip for this one with the club failing to show any kind of semblance in defence this season. The club is bound to concede against Southampton and with their defenders hardly known for their attacking impetuous, their players are going to hardly offer value for the tie.
Our entire trio of defenders from this one will be roped in from Southampton due to the attacking persuasion they have as players. Although the club is bound to concede today, in Cedric Soares, Jack Stephens and Jan Bednarek, we have three defenders at our disposal who are capable of galloping down the park persistently and pulling off a goal or assist in between them.
SOU Vs TOT Dream11 Midfielders
There were some good options from Tottenham for this forthcoming encounter, something which lead us to hectic deliberations at coming up with the most ideal picks. We begin with Christian Eriksen after the midfielder came up with a freekick for his side in the foregone fixture, one which emphasised his worth as a player and is set to see him nail down his place in the side’s playing 11 for this one.
Alli is given a skip by us despite the player scoring 6 goals this term due to his inconsistency as a player. He’s someone who fails to consistently step upto the mantle, a narrative which was reaffirmed the last time around to see him being kept out of our setup for the day.
Tanguy Ndombele is going to find a spot in our Dream 11 side as well for this one with the player undoubtedly his side’s best performer in their encounter against Norwich City. He controlled play for his side, dictating it in both the dockets of the game on his first full return for the club after his injury to make him an instant selection for the day.
Harry Winks returns for Tottenham and is being brought in by us as well for this outing with the player capable off breaching defences with his astute passes and crosses while from Southampton we are picking out just the one pick in the form of Sofiane Boufal.
SOU Vs TOT Dream11 Strikers
Successfully scoring for the side the last time around as he sent down the late penalty he himself had earned, Harry Kane took his tally upto 11 goals and 2 assists this season to make the striker a must have one for the day. He’s accompanied by the tenacious Lucas Moura, someone who had an instant impact after being brought on in the same encounter to earn the freekick for Tottenham’s first goal.
Elsewhere from Southampton, Ings has the 12 goals to his name and came up with one the last time around as well but it was down to a defensive lapse by Crystal Palace. The striker will find it tough to get going against Tottenham to see us leave him out for the day with Che Adams coming in place after some solid showings in the last couple of encounters.
Captain And Vice-Captain
Kane will lead us out as our captain while Moura is the vice-captain.
