Southampton defender Yan Valery sends clear warning to Tottenham Hotspur

Southampton defender Yan Valery has told Tottenham Hotspur that his team will come for the three points on Saturday when the two teams begin their Premier League season.

The Saints travel to N17 as they take on a strengthened Spurs side after an eventful summer transfer window. Both teams have made signings in the past few weeks and both managers would fancy their chances tomorrow.

Valery, while speaking in an interview (h/t HampshireLive), recalled Southampton’s performances against Spurs last season and claims that they can repeat it once again this weekend.

“Last year, we did really well against them over there and even at home so we’re just going to try and get the three points on Saturday.”

Spurs must get off to a winning star

Valery, of course, is referring to his team’s 3-2 win at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium in February, when goals from Armando Broja, Mohamed Elyounoussi, and Che Adams sealed all three points for Ralph Hasenhuttl’s side.

That result was a big blow in Conte’s pursuit of a top-four finish, but the team steadied the ship and got across the finish line at the end of gameweek 38. While Elyounoussi and Adams could take the field against Spurs tomorrow, Armando Broja won’t.

The Albanian striker returned to Chelsea this summer from his loan spell at St. Mary’s. This is a game Spurs would be expected to win, given it is at their home ground.

Moreover, Southampton aren’t really one of the best teams on paper in the Premier League and Spurs should hope to win against such sides if they really want to challenge Manchester City and Liverpool for the league title.

As for Valery, the 23-year-old could start at right-back for Southampton on Saturday. If Ivan Perisic starts down the left flank for Conte, then the Saints defender could have a real task on his hands to stop the Croatian star from bombing down the flanks in attack.
