Tottenham line up v Southampton with midfield maestro back in the side?

first_imgJust when Tottenham Hotspur looked like they’d shaken off the ‘Spursy’ tag they took their eyes off the ball and were defeated by a rejuvenated Newcastle United side last weekend.Being beaten by a team in the relegation zone hurt the Spurs faithful but many had already left the ground grumbling after an uncharacteristically dismal display in the second period.Now manager Mauricio Pochettino needs to pick up his players, and the fans, who haven’t tasted victory in the Premier League since they demolished West Ham in November.Against Southampton, Belgian midfield maestro Mousa Dembele could return to the line-up to partner Eric Dier who, goal aside, looked out of sorts against the Toon, in the centre of the park, but Ryan Mason, Clinton N’Jie and Alex Pritchard will remain absent.So how will the Spurs XI line up?
