The biggest fixture in that run will be Sunday’s Carabao Cup final against Manchester City, but with Tottenham sitting seventh in the table they cannot afford to overlook tonight’s game against the Saints.

Ralph Hasenhuttl’s team are in mixed form and suffered a heartbreaking FA Cup semi-final defeat by Leicester at the weekend, but they still have a lot to play for, with relegation unlikely but not entirely off the cards just yet.
