Tottenham Hotspur vs. Southampton – English Premier League, April 21, 2021
It has been a busy few days for Spurs this week already. First, there was the breaking news of the prospect of a European Super League – and then Jose Mourinho was sacked as head coach.
The north London club will also be sweating on the availability of star striker Harry Kane after he limped away from the draw with Everton at the weekend. Now Southampton comes up next on Wednesday.
Tottenham Hotspur vs. Southampton Odds
Spurs is probably lucky that it is playing a side that has struggled for form this year after the start of this week.
BetOnline still thinks that the home side is good for the win here, and it would probably take a very good effort from the south coast club to come away with even a point.
Will we see a different Tottenham on Wednesday? The rumors coming out of the club suggest that some senior and more influential players in the squad had finally had enough of Jose Mourinho’s managerial style and tactics.
Now could be the time for a more exciting Spurs to emerge.
Southampton’s final hope of finishing the season off on a high was dashed at the weekend as it lost to Leicester in the FA Cup semifinal. The prospect of a Wembley final might have made up for some shockingly bad performances during the campaign – but now Ralph Hasehuttl must raise his players for seven more games to secure top-flight safety for another year.
His side was roundly beaten by relegation-threatened West Brom at the weekend. It was very noticeable that the club with less chance of staying up looked much more intent on pulling off a great escape. There have been many injuries and illnesses that have had a big effect on results this season, but Southampton needs to raise its game a few more times now to be sure of its Premier League status.

Tottenham Hotspur to Win-124
Spurs will find this game much easier if Harry Kane is fit enough to start. But I feel it will still be strong enough for the three points even without the England skipper.
Results haven’t been too positive recently, so a win against an out of sorts Southampton would be just the tonic.
