Southampton manager Claude Puel says Tottenham Hotspur visit is ideal examination after 10 days off

Claude Puel says his Southampton will be recharged and fully focused when they welcome Tottenham Hotspur to St Mary’s Stadium on Wednesday night.

Saints have enjoyed a 10-day break since their last Premier League encounter, a 3-1 win at AFC Bournemouth, and Puel told "For this game, all the team will be fresh."

"Just, of course, Austin with his injury and also Jordy Clasie, but all the players present have had a good recovery after the game against AFC Bournemouth.

"Now it's important to come back with good concentration for the first game after 10 days off, and I prefer to play against a good team for the concentration and the good spirit."
