Tottenham Hotspur vs. Southampton: Preview and TV schedule

Spurs have lost two on the bounce, though will look to get back on track against Southampton on Sunday.

Whether he's aggressively throwing his gilet to the ground in anger, saying completely nonsensical things in press conferences, or sending his team out without any semblance of tactics or team cohesion at all, Tim Sherwood has an intriguing-yet-simultaneously-frightening unpredictability not too dissimilar to a punter who's had one too many on a Friday night.

That alone should make Spurs' game at home to Southampton on Sunday quite interesting, or at the very least, amusing. Football-wise, they'll look to bounce back from defeats to Chelsea and Arsenal and extend their two-point advantage over Everton in fifth place. However, Southampton shouldn't make life easy. They head into this game with the momentum of wins over Crystal Palace and Norwich City.

Spurs still have a fairly lengthy injury list, though they hope to have Kyle Walker, Mousa Dembélé and Emmanuel Adebayor back from problems in time. For Southampton, Morgan Schneiderlin and Victor Wanyama face late fitness tests, though Jack Cork is still sidelined.
