Tottenham will start their life tonight after Jose Mourinho when they host Southampton in the Premier League

Just days before the final clash of the Carabao Cup against Manchester City, Spurs made the decision to end ties with Mourinho after 17 months

The club has since been involved in the European Super League and has withdrawn from the controversial runaway competition after a hurricane of 72 hours

Ryan Mason will be in preliminary control for tonight’s game, keen to put a difficult week behind the club

Tottenham remains in fourth place five points ahead of Chelsea and has to win to keep its – now all-important – top four hopes alive

Seemingly safe in the drop zone, Southampton was hammered 5-2 by Spurs in September, with Heung-min hitting Son four times

The full coverage of the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium will be broadcast live exclusively on talkSPORT Our pre-game preparation starts at 5:30 p.m.

“Unfortunately we don’t have any in the stadium at the moment, but I want a Tottenham team to make our fans proud, so that they can enjoy watching us”

“For many people, football is all they have in life. To see how their team is playing, I want them to be proud and invested, and I want the players to feel that energy too.” / p>

“Of course they’re not in the stadium now, but when they come back this football club needs to feel that energy. That’s how we work; that’s us ”
