Matt Holland believes Tottenham Hotspur will make a swift return to winning ways against Southampton at White Hart Lane on Sunday afternoon.

The Lilywhites allowed a two-goal lead to slip to draw 2-2 with London rivals Chelsea at Stamford Bridge last Monday night and hand the Premier League title to Leicester City.

Enhanced odds: Get 14/1 on Southampton to beat Tottenham

The north Londoners haven’t lost a Premier League game since a 1-0 defeat by West Ham in early March, while Spurs are looking to hold off the challenge of third-placed Arsenal.

Former Republic of Ireland international Holland believes Tottenham will have enough to beat Ronald Koeman’s Southampton outfit at White Hart Lane on Sunday afternoon.

“Despite going out of the FA Cup last week, Pochettino has juggled the squad brilliantly for their hectic schedule this season,” Holland told Marathon Bet.

“Spurs have been brilliant in the league and sit second.

“However, I don’t see Swansea causing too much ruckus – maybe a Sigurdsson goal against his old club. Spurs should wrap this up even without Kane and Dembele. A Spurs win for me.”

Enhanced odds: Get 14/1 on Southampton to beat Tottenham

The Saints were 4-2 winners against fourth-placed Manchester City in their most-recent Premier League fixture thanks to Sadio Mane’s impressive goal-scoring form.
