How we expect Tottenham to line up against Southampton



A

ntonio Conte could field a team devoid of new signings against Southampton despite Tottenham’s busy summer in the transfer market.

Richarlison is banned for the Premier League opener after throwing a flare into the stands while celebrating a goal in his latter days at Everton.

Ivan Perisic has been labelled a doubt by the Spurs boss while returning from a calf issue suffered on his final game for Inter Milan, which could still allow him to make his debut off the bench.

Likewise, Yves Bissouma may not be risked from the start having tweaked his hamstring. The new midfielder also missed a portion of pre-season due to Covid-19.

Clement Lenglet, Fraser Forster and Djed Sence are most likely to be kept on the bench for the visit of Saints, Emerson Royal being favoured over Spence at right wing-back if Matt Doherty is not risked on his return from knee surgery.

Oliver Skipp is Tottenham’s final absentee due to a gashed leg.

Predicted Tottenham XI: Lloris; Romero, Dier, Davies; Doherty, Hojbjerg, Bentancur, Sessegnon; Kulusevski, Kane, Son.
