Tottenham predicted the line-up against Southampton

19

With the top four in sight, Tottenham travel to face Southampton in the Premier League at St Mary’s in the middle of the week.

Spurs extended their unbeaten league race under new boss Antonio Conte to six games with a 3-0 victory over Crystal Palace on Sunday.

Lucas Moura caught the eye when he scored one goal and two assists, and the Brazilian could be rewarded with a start on the south coast when Tottenham look to reduce the gap to Arsenal in the Champions League places.

This is how Conte was able to set up his site.

Hugo Lloris (GK) – A credible in Tottenham and leads by good example between the posts.

Davinson Sanchez (CB) – A no-nonsense defender, aggressive in his duels and can win back the ball high up on the pitch. Put on an impressive all-round performance on the second day of Christmas.

Eric Dier (CB) – His ability on the ball will be an important asset under Conte’s supervision.

Ben Davies (CB) – One of the biggest beneficiaries of the Italian’s arrival, impressive in the left-wing defensive role so far. His underdeveloped runs were missed on Sunday.

Emerson Royal (RWB) – Has seen the opposite of what many Spurs fans expected, excelled going forward but looks less confident to go in the opposite direction.

Tanguy Ndombele (CM) – The early indications are that the Frenchman will flourish under Conte. His performance against Liverpool last week was impressive.

Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg (CM) – Should offer steel and tranquility in possession alongside Ndombele. However, can be replaced by Harry Winks.

Sergio Reguilon (LWB) – Will be keen to take his chance in the absence of Ryan Sessegnon to injury.

Lucas Moura (RW) – Prominent in the victory over Crystal Palace when he took one goal and two assists.

Harry Kane (ST) – The English captain hopes that his recent goal performance is a sign of a return to form.

Son Heung-min (LW) – His tactical counterattack was crucial for Conte’s style of play.
