Tottenham vs Southampton – FA Cup :This is the Replay of the 4th round of the FA Cup, since the first encounter between these two ended on a draw.
Tottenham vs Southampton –They drew in Southampton a week ago, on a match where Southampton were losing and scored the tying goal right at the end and now this time the match will be played in London.
Tottenham is in 8th place of the Premier League and their objective for this season will be securing a European spot.
The team from London isn’t going through a good period, but they’ve returned to victories in the league on the last round against Norwich and despite the slim scoreline, it is a result that might motivate the team going forward.
Tottenham is a team that scored a lot of goals when Mourinho arrived and they’ve won a lot of encounters due to that attacking playstyle. However, it seems like the intensity diminished as matches went by and the poor results started appearing.
Mourinho’s side is a very strong team at home, having only lost 2 out of their last 11 encounters played as hosts and against teams that right now are stronger (Liverpool and Chelsea).
The loss against Liverpool was normal but against Chelsea, I thought that Tottenham was looking more promising than what they showcased on that encounter and I continue to think that Mourinho really crumbles on these big matches, where he looks like he is scared to play with an attacking style.
Mourinho’s fear of losing to the other managers of his reputation is bigger than his fear of not winning and that’s what makes him a worse-rated manager these days.
Southampton is in 11th place and they’ve lost 2 of their last 3 matches in the league.
They aren’t making a good campaign this year and it will be without surprises that they will finish on a mid-table position this year.
Only 2 teams conceded more goals than Southampton this year in the Premier League: Norwich that is in last place and Aston Villa that is also fighting to avoid relegation.
Southampton will face a Tottenham side that should give everyt
hing they can to advance. Knowing Mourinho, we are aware of his title hunger and we are also aware of his quality on knockout competitions.

Tottenham vs Southampton – Betting Tips: :
My selection for this match will be for Tottenham to score 2 goals, since they are playing at home and should do everything to advance.
They’ve scored 2 or more goals in 6 of the last 8 matches they’ve played at home and if they play the football they were playing when Mourinho got to the club, they shouldn’t have any difficulties beating Southampton.
