Saints came a cropper in a big way last week and will be hoping that another display like that one is out of their system.

Spurs will be looking for an emphatic victory as they fight for a Champions League place and will have Gareth Bale ready to fire a few bullets at us.

Knowing that they have a big game against Chelsea facing them on Wednesday the thought of defeat to Saints will not be crossing their minds.

For Saints a defeat could still be enough to stay up. unless by an enormous margin. as Wigan could easily lose to WBA at the Hawthorns.

  • We need to keep the score down if we are to lose but Wigan may get beaten today which will help no end.
