After the disappointment of Monday night, when Tottenham Hotspur drew 2-2 at Chelsea and with that stalemate saw their final hopes of winning the Barclays Premier League come to an end, they return for their final home game of the season.

The incentive for Spurs now is to try and finish in second place. If they beat Southampton and Arsenal fail to win at Manchester City, they will be guaranteed that second spot.

And if they do confirm the runners-up spot it will be their best ever finish in the Premier League and highest since they were second in 1962-63 in the old First Division.

Spurs are now unbeaten in their last eight games in the Premier League games while they last lost at White Hart Lane in January against league champions Leicester City.

Southampton, meanwhile, have lost just once in their last eight in the league - and that was also against Leicester, in April.

But their record at White Hart Lane is poor. They have lost on their last four visits and last won there in September 2003.
