Struggling Southampton battle to a point against Spurs

Harry Kane

His team were largely off-colour, seeing a spritely Southampton go ahead via a Davinson Sanchez own goal before Kane swiftly levelled the score.

The Saints were value for their lead though after they proved a constant threat down both flanks with the Tottenham full-backs getting caught high up the field on numerous occasions.

Dutch keeper, Michel Vorm stood in for Lloris who missed the game through illness as boss Mauricio Pochettino admitted there were a few players feeling under the weather.

The Saints have been in poor form and have failed to win their last six Premier League games.

Tottenham, who have 44 points from 23 games after 13 wins, five draws and five defeats, are fifth in the table and three points behind both Chelsea and Liverpool.

The quick-fire responce was needed by the visitors as it would have been easy for the hosts to attempt to hold out their one-goal lead.

At the other end Southampton centre-half Jack Stephens was left unmarked but headed over the bar from a fine cross by James Ward-Prowse.

The continued absence of Charlie Austin is a big problem for the team and otherwise goals look a problem. with a bang average defence and midfield, things need turning around fast and I don't believe that Pellegrino is capable of doing that and more importantly, I don't believe the players do either.

But the best late chances fell to Spurs, who recorded only two shots on target in the match, with a brilliant block from Stephens denying substitute Erik Lamela the victor, while Kane missed the chance to score his 100th goal by firing wide in the last minute. I think every manager wants all their players fit and available to select. Kane has scored 99 Premier League goals overall. Sub Erik Lamela jabbed an effort off-target from close range with seven minutes to play after decent work from Sissoko (although a corner should have been given) but then Southampton created the best opening of all.

"Maybe he will play in the FA Cup, we will have all the week and we will see if he is in good position to play".

Southampton started brightly, pressing Tottenham in a style they themselves have become known for. Harry Kane and Dele Alli had frustrating afternoons, and Mauricio Pochettino's side seemed to miss the influence of Christian Eriksen.

The meeting between the two earlier in the season (less than a month ago) saw a Harry Kane hattrick and a 5-2 demolishing of Mauricio Pellegrino's men. On another day they would have taken all three points here; the victories certainly need to start mounting up soon.
