Tottenham Hotspur host Southampton in the Premier League on Wednesday and it could be a pretty low-key affair after what has transpired in recent days.

Jose Mourinho is no longer in charge of Tottenham Hotspur, so former midfielder Ryan Mason will be the interim manager against Southampton.

With a League Cup final to contest on Sunday, Tottenham might not be at full strength against the Saints.

With the Champions League no longer in the equation (due to the announcement of the European Super League), Spurs don’t really have anything to play for in the league.

Southampton, meanwhile, are still not assured of their safety, so they still have something to play for in the Premier League.

Tottenham Hotspur vs Southampton Head-to-head

Neither side have been on a good run of form heading into this fixture. While Spurs have won just one of their last five, Southampton have picked up two wins.

The head-to-head record between the two teams is in favor of Tottenham, who have won 23 of the 43 Premier League games between the two teams.

Southampton have won 13, while seven have ended in draws.

Tottenham Hotspur’s attention will be on the EFL Cup final, so they will rest a few key players. That could provide Southampton the opportunity to face a weakened Spurs side and do enough to come out on top.
