EPL: THFC vs SaintsFC

The two teams that have to lose in the opening round are Southampton and Tottenham facing each other in the second round of the 2020/2021 Premier League.  This is a match where Southampton is played at home.

Last week, Tottenham was mentioned a lot with two negotiated transfer deals by Gareth Bale and Sergio Reguilon.  However, what makes Mourinho interested is improving the team's performance after a disappointing defeat to Everton.

In the middle of last week, Spurs found a winning smile in the second Europa League qualifying round.  In return, Mourinho's students will consume a lot of physical strength when they immediately have to continue after only 3 days.  Not to mention the trip to the South also makes them move a little more distance.

Meanwhile, Southampton holds a good home record with Tottenham with 2 wins, 1 draw and 2 defeats in the last 5 games to host Tottenham, in the Premier League framework.  Even considering the last 3 encounters at St Mary, Southampton are unbeaten with 2 wins, 1 draw.  Obviously this is a big challenge for Mourinho teachers and students.

In the next match, many sources believe that the Portuguese strategist will have two changes related to the positions of Alli and Harry Wink.  Instead of the two names mentioned above are Lamela and Ndombele - players who have played impressively in the middle of last week.

On the Southampton side, they also had some turmoil with injuries from Nathan Redmond and Bednarek.  Che Adams's position was also a question mark as he performed below expectations in the opening match.

Southampton were unbeaten in their last 3 games at St Mary against Tottenham.
