Spurs look to close in on top four

Tottenham Hotspur (6/4 – Top 4 Finish) will be hoping to move closer to the Champions League positions on Wednesday when they play host to Southampton, while there are a further three games taking place across the evening.

Spurs currently occupy seventh position in the standings, four points behind West Ham United in fourth, but Spurs have four games in hand on the Hammers and Antonio Conte’s side will be aiming to charge up the table.

Tottenham bounced back to winning ways with a 3-1 FA Cup victory over Brighton last time out but they will need to be at their best to overcome Southampton, who have lost just one of their last eight across all competitions.

Conte will be without the services of Eric Dier, Oliver Skipp and Japhet Tanganga because of respective thigh, groin and knee injuries, but new signings Rodrigo Bentancur and Dejan Kulusevski could make their Premier League debuts.

As for The Saints, they will have to make do without defender Lyanco, who is out for 12 weeks after sustaining a hamstring injury, while Nathan Tella is still unavailable and Armando Broja will be assessed.

Tottenham are 8/13 favourites to pick up the win on home soil, while the draw is priced at 3/1 and Southampton are 5/1 to triumph.

Elsewhere, leaders Manchester City (1/9 – Premier League Outright) will be looking to extend their gap at the top to 12 points when they welcome Brentford to the Etihad Stadium for a 19:45 KO.

The Citizens are on a 10-game unbeaten run across all competitions and they prepare to take on a Brentford side that have lost their last five matches across all competitions, most recently losing 4-1 to Everton in the FA Cup.
