Head To Head
Saturday’s game will be the 124th competitive meeting between the two clubs, with Spurs currently leading the way with 55 wins to Southampton’s 38.
This fixture has been a rather goals-y one in recent seasons, with the last nine editions seeing at least two goals scored, with games this century finishing 7-2, 5-1, 5-0 and 4-0.
One has to go all the way back to January 2001 for the last goalless draw between these teams.
