The Saints, who travel to White Hart Lane tomorrow, have several senior players carrying injuries.
Speaking at his pre-match press conference, the manager told reporters: "I think it's a very good chance to bring in young players to give them a very good experience of playing against a very big team in the Premier League.
"It's a very good time when you're facing difficulties in terms of injuries that you bring in young players to give them experience. It'll be a very good thing for their futures as well.
"Just seeing the doubts we have in our senior players, we're thinking about maybe drafting a younger player into the team."
Ahead of this weekend's fixtures, Southampton sat eighth in the table.
