The game kicks off at 1415 GMT at White Hart Lane live on Sky Sports 1.

The Tottenham Hotspur teenager will be hoping to following in the footsteps of Harry Winks and Josh Onomah.

Tottenham midfielder Dele Alli insists he will never apologise for his aggressive streak but says he has calmed down this season.

"We have to keep winning our games".

"But of course it's fantastic for them and for the club". I'm very happy with him and all the players, but I understand they are maybe not happy with some situations - different players. "That's something everyone knows", admitted Pochettino.

It's been an incredible rise for the 20-year-old since he arrived in north London from MK Dons, as he now has 14 Premier League goals this season, just five less than Kane, albeit the striker was missing earlier this season due to injury too.

Southampton nearly found themselves back on level terms when a powerful Oriol Romeu shot from distance swerved past the post, but they were grateful to Forster after 23 minutes as he made a fine stop to claw away Toby Alderweireld's glancing header. Southampton's miserable first-half was compounded when they lost striker Manolo Gabbiadini to injury.

Another good day for Spurs.

Chances continued to come Tottenham's way, with Alli scuffing straight at Forster, who was then required to make an instinctive, clawing stop to keep out Toby Alderweireld's header.

The Denmark global fired in a low drive from 25 yards before Dele Alli struck from the penalty spot as Spurs eased into a 2-0 half-time lead.

"I think we did really well in the first half, but, obviously, the second half was a bit tougher".

Saints last scored four goals in three consecutive league games back in December 1980; a run that also included a 4-4 draw against Spurs at White Hart Lane.

- The only previous top-flight season than Spurs have remained unbeaten at home was 1964-65 (21 games, 0 defeats).

"I always want more and I'm always hungry to get goals".

The win against Southampton came without injured star Harry Kane, with Eriksen reflecting that the whole team worked to compensate for his absence.
