Spurs and Pochettino frustrated at Southampton despite Kane

Spurs and Pochettino frustrated at Southampton despite Kane

Their array of attacking talent and ability to push sides aside easily will give them the best possible chance against a Southampton side out of form. Charlie Austin, Saints' top scorer with six goals this season, is out with a hamstring problem, while long-serving defender Maya Yoshida is a major doubt for the weekend with a similar issue.

Alderweireld joined Spurs in 2015 from Atletico Madrid having previous played in the Premier League on loan at Southampton, making 103 appearances so far.

"We can not transform the performance into goals and more points but we need to show again in the next game". In three or four weeks time everything can change. "It's part of our competition", he said.

As for Southampton, Mauricio Pellegrino's men have struggled this season in the top-flight with the club winless from their last ten league outings but they did overcome Championship outfit Fulham in the FA Cup Third Round.

"I feel in our team the spirit is really good and everybody is conscious about what we need". With the lack of squad depth at Mauricio Pochettino's disposal, it is crucial that his key players are on song because his options off the bench tend to be limited.

Think you can do better than Lawro?

Southampton have few injury concerns, and are instead concerned about their form, having not won in the Premier League in nearly two months.

Kane's goal was his ninth in his past five Premier League starts and he is now just a goal away from becoming the 27th member of the "100 club". The visitors are unbeaten since their hammering to Premier League leaders Manchester City in mid-December, sitting three points behind fourth-placed Chelsea.

For Pochettino the game against the Saints will be an emotional occasion as it will mark five years to the week that the Argentinian took charge at St Mary's, where he would stay for the next 18 months before moving to Tottenham. This poor run includes four games without a win at home.

Harry Kane's double last weekend made it eight goals in as many Premier League games for Spurs recently and the England worldwide has now bagged 20 league goals this season - three more than any other player - and has hit 28 club goals in 28 appearances in all competitions.

They have also won their last two away games without conceding - 3-0 at Burnley and 2-0 at Swansea.
