With the top four in their sights, Tottenham travel to face Southampton in the Premier League at St Mary's this midweek.

Spurs stretched their unbeaten league run under new boss Antonio Conte to six games with a 3-0 victory over Crystal Palace on Sunday.

Lucas Moura caught the eye as he grabbed a goal and two assists, and the Brazilian could be rewarded with a start on the south coast as Tottenham look to close the gap on Arsenal in the Champions League spots.

Here's how Conte could line his side up.


Tottenham predicted lineup vs Southampton - Premier League

1. Goalkeeper & defenders

Hugo Lloris (GK) - A stalwart at Tottenham and leads by example between the posts.

Davinson Sanchez (CB) - A no-nonsense defender, aggressive in his duels and able to win the ball back high up the pitch. Put in an impressive all-round performance on Boxing Day.

Eric Dier (CB) - His ability on the ball will be a key asset under Conte's watch.

Ben Davies (CB) - One of the biggest beneficiaries of the Italian's arrival, impressing in that left-sided defensive role so far. His underlapping runs were missed on Sunday.

2. Wing-backs & midfielders

Emerson Royal (RWB) - Has looked the reverse of what many Spurs fans expected, excelling going forward but looking less assured going in the opposite direction.

Tanguy Ndombele (CM) - The early indications are that the Frenchman is going to flourish under Conte. His performance against Liverpool last week was impressive.

Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg (CM) - Should offer steel and calmness in possession alongside Ndombele. Could be replaced by Harry Winks, however.

Sergio Reguilon (LWB) - Will be keen to seize his opportunity in the absence of Ryan Sessegnon to injury.

3. Forwards

Lucas Moura (RW) - The standout in the win over Crystal Palace as he grabbed a goal and two assists.

Harry Kane (ST) - The England captain will hope his goalscoring performances recently are signs of a return to form.

Son Heung-min (LW) - His pace on the counter-attack is vital to Conte's style of play.
