Five changes to the team that started against Borussia Dortmund in the Champions League on Tuesday. The headline team news is that Dele returns from a hamstring injury sustained at Fulham on 20 January. He's joined by Eric Dier, his first start in the Premier League since the win at Leicester City on 8 December, since when he's has Appendicitis and Tonsillitis. Kyle Walker-Peters makes his first start in the Premier League since Boxing Day. So it's Dele, Dier, Walker-Peters, Lucas Moura and Danny Rose in for Ben Davies, Heung-Min Son, Serge Aurier, Toby Alderweireld and Harry Winks.

Since their return to the EPL in 2012, Southampton are winless in their 6 home league games against us (D2 L4). They’d won their previous games against us before that run. Southampton have won 3 of their 7 EPL home games under Manager Ralph Hasenhutti (D1 L3) as many as they had in their previous 24 combined at ST Mary’s under Mauricio Pellegrino and Mark Hughes (W3 D11 L10)
Southampton have lost more points from winning positions than any other side in the EPL this season. Southampton’s James Ward-Prowse has netted 5 EPL goals this season, more than he has in any previous campaign in the competition. Those 5 goals have come in his last 8 games – his previous 5 came over a period of 52 games. Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg has made 13.6 of Southampton’s successful passes in the EPL this season (1135/8365) – no midfielder has made a higher proportion for their side in 2018-19.
We have lost just one of our last 13 EPL meetings with Southampton (W10 D2), scoring at least once in all 13 games. We have lost our last 2 away league games, the same number we had lost in our previous 13 on the road (W11 D0 L2).
We’ve only lost three in a row on the road under Poch once before (November 2017). Poch has never lost away at former club Southampton in the EPL (W2 D2) – Only Harry Redknapp (5 games against West Ham) has had a longer unbeaten away run against a specific side he has formerly managed in the competition.
Kane has scored in each of his last four EPL meetings with Southampton, netting 6 goals in total. He also scored in each of his last 3 against them at St Mary’s Stadium. Just 9.2% of Kane’s EPL touches this season have been shots- lowest ratio in a single season since his full campaign with Spurs in 2014-15 (7.5%), and down from 14.6% last term.
