While the Conte era has been a somewhat stop-start one at Spurs for a number of reasons thus far, they are unbeaten under his watch in the competition and look good value to finish in the top four come the end of the campaign.
Now, we are starting to see Spurs in his mould.
Southampton, however, could well be buoyed by their dramatic Boxing Day win over West Ham United and can certainly cause problems when at their best.

Southampton vs Tottenham prediction
Southampton, at their best, can give any team problems. Still, they were missing key players prior to the Boxing Day win over West Ham due to Covid and do not have the biggest squad in the world to cope with playing two games in such quick succession.
Spurs, on the other hand, look to be riding a crest of a wave under Conte.
Spurs to win 2-0.
