Under Claude Puel, Southampton are becoming formidable.

Tonight, however, they have a tough test in the form of Tottenham Hotspur (k-o 8.00pm) and will be hoping striker Charlie Austin maintains his fine goal-scoring form.

Spurs were unbeaten for the first 12 games of the season, but a shortage of wins so far means it’s been difficult to crack the top four places.

Will the Saints be yet another barrier to the top?
