Spurs travel to Southampton on Sunday in search of improvement following two lacklustre performances.
Andre Villas-Boas' men were outplayed and beaten 4-2 by his old side Chelsea last weekend and followed the result up with a 1-1 draw with Slovenian club Maribor in the Europa League on Thursday.
Southampton dwell in 18th in the table with just four points to their name, having conceded more goals in the first eight games than any other team in Premier League history (24).
