Kieren Trippier could be introduced and add some ‘fresh’ blood to what must be a tired T0ttenham side – in tonight’s big game against Southampton.

Mauricio Pochettino is going to have to get the Spurs project back on course tonight, and we have a good record against The Saints, having met 38 times and won on 20 occasions.
Our last meeting was a 1-1 draw at Wembley, last Boxing Day.

The restoration of Alderweireld and Winks in the starting XI would go a long way to achieving that.
