Match Today || Everton vs Chelsea Team News , Channel and Odds

Tottenham Hotspur face Southampton today in the opening match week of the new Premier League campaign.

After securing Champions League qualification in the final games of last season Antonio Conte’s side will be hoping to keep the momentum going with a win over the Saints.

The North London club have had a strong transfer window, bringing in 6 new players, most notably Richarlison from Everton, Yves Bissouma from Brighton and Ivan Perisic from Inter Milan.

After securing Champions League qualification during the closing weeks of last season under the management of Antonio Conte, Tottenham Hotspur will get their 2022/23 Premier league season underway on Saturday afternoon as they host Southampton.

Spurs have enjoyed a positive pre-season, having secured the six summer signings and fans will be optimistic heading into the season but will face stiff competition from a host of Premier League rivals this season.

Tottenham team news
Spurs will be without new signing Richarlison, who is still banned after throwing a flair into the stands during Everton vs Chelsea last season.

Ivan Perisic is a doubt to start the game as he is still nursing an injury suffered in his final days at Inter Milan.

He may, however, make an appearance off the bench.

Yves Bissouma is also unlikely to make the starting eleven due to a slight hamstring issue, but there’s a chance he features late on in the game.

Southampton team news
Nathan Tella has been ruled out of the opening game through injury and Theo Walcott is also expected to be absent.

After securing Champions League qualification during the closing weeks of last season under the management of Antonio Conte, Tottenham Hotspur will get their 2022/23 Premier league season underway on Saturday afternoon as they host Southampton.

Spurs have enjoyed a positive pre-season, having secured the six summer signings and fans will be optimistic heading into the season but will face stiff competition from a host of Premier League rivals this season.

With so much new, it would seem like a good time for Southampton to make a trip to take on Spurs but with Conte having the same lineup available that ended last season, he can take his time to bed in the new signings if he’d like to. For Ralph Hasenhüttl this should come as a concern as Southampton has experienced massive turnover this summer.

The team has been getting back to their roots of youth development but now they’re adopting something closer to the system that Hasenhüttl was used to with Red Bull by purchasing the best available youth from elsewhere instead of relying solely on academy production. Southampton have made five signings and only Joe Airbo is older than 20 years of age. This could be good for the future but in a battle of youth versus experience, an early goal from Spurs could see the match get out of hand.
