SOU vs TOT Dream11 : Harrowing start leaves Tottenham facing massive flak and backlash as the signs of cracks start appearing in the outfit
After going on an unprecedented and compelling run in the bygone edition of the Champions League, Tottenham have been quick to come crashing down from the momentous standard they were accorded to. Want away players, a manger openly making repeated claims of wanting to move elsewhere and two silent transfer windows along with an absurd gameplan and tea combination have left the side coming under the immense brunt of their supporters.
Whilst their defeats to Newcastle United and Leicester City would still have been fathomable by their supporters, it was the stunning upset doles out to them in the Carabao Cup which out to be the final straw. On the cusp of imploring the side to get their act in order, supporters from all quarters were finally pushed over after losing to Colchester United in the week, being shunted out on penalties after the match ended 0-0.
The result lead to a slew of ramifications engulfing the club with any questioning Pochettino’s desire of wanting to carry on with the job whilst others directed their qualms at the owners for not divulging enough money to strengthen the squad. In the midst of all the clamour, one this which comes across clearly is the fact that this is a side in fears of waning and wavering, a downward spiral it would like to avoid by coming back with a win today.
Playing against Southampton at home, Tottenham will be quietly confident of overturning their sordid run of results against an outfit who have offered little in the way of reslliance this season. In 13th place, they lost their previous match in the league 3-1 to Bournemouth, a result which doesn’t augur well for their reslliance infront of clinical attacking sides.
SOU vs TOT Match Prediction
Althouhg Southampton will come out fully packed at the back and look to soak up the kitchen sink and more the hosts promise to direct their way, we see Tottenham scraping through to a win today. Southampton are more than prone to crumble at crucial junctures and a hurting Tottenham side should be able to craft enough opportunities to find the goals which swing this match their way.

SOU vs TOT Dream11 Goal-Keeper
If Southampton are to have any chance of registering a result in their favour and winning this one, they’ll require their goal-keeper Angus Gunn to be at the pinnacle of his game. Tottenham will be unleashing a carnage of shots his way, unsparing and unforgiving in their approach today and with the shot stopper being a reliable face, we envision him registering a steady amount of saves.
SOU vs TOT Dream11 Defenders
With Tottenham being paper thin at best currently in defence and Southampton prone to falling apart under relentless pressure, we went in with a clear mind when picking out our backline. Our only agenda was to opt for names who’ll be involved in the attacking sorties of their side as well, defenders prone to move up the park and be likely to pick up either a goal or assist.
This sees us get in Jan Vertonghen from Tottenham while from Southampton we are picking up Yan Valery and Jan Bednarek from Southampton.
SOU vs TOT Dream11 Midfielders
The three players come in from Tottenham, options who the side will be looking to heavily involve in their attacks and try to muster their way past a Southampton defence which is set to be put on a staunch fight today. Christien Eriksen has endured a horrid start to the season with many questioning his ambitions of playing for the club after making it clear in the summer that he wanted to leave.
However, with him being on corners and freekicks, he had to get him in along with new signing Tandy N’Dombele and Harry Winks. Just the one pick from Southampton meanwhile with us choosing Sofiane Boufal for this one.
SOU vs TOT Dream11 Strikers
If there’s been any player who has ensured that Tottenham have been able to squirm and scamper their way past to wins till now, it’s been their striker Harry Kane. The leading goal scorer for them with the four goals, he’s looked the likeliest player to score from the side and was an instant pick for us when we approached this segment of our side.
Lucas Moura is also selected by us while we have Che Adams be included from Southampton to complete our picks for today’s match.
Captain And Vice-Captain
Kane is being made our captain for this encounter while Tanguy is selected as the vice-captain.
