Tottenham 2-3 Southampton (Feb 9)

While Tottenham have managed to beat Manchester City and Leeds away in recent weeks, they have also suffered some unexpected losses, with Burnley, Wolves and Southampton all getting three points from them.

That will come as a boost to Middlesbrough ahead of the FA Cup clash, but the hosts have been fairly inconsistent since they beat Manchester United in a penalty shootout.

They have won just two matches since then and come into this game off the back of a 3-2 loss at Barnsley in the Championship, resulting in them slipping further away from a play-off spot.
