Southampton 1-2 Tottenham LIVE! Kane Goal – Premier League Match Stream, Latest Scores and Goals Updates Today
Tottenham make the trip to the south coast to take on a Southampton side rooted at the bottom of the Premier League. Antonio Conte’s side saw fifth-placed Newcastle close the gap on them in fourth to just a point on Friday night and are under pressure at St Mary’s Stadium to ensure they head into the international break in the driver’s seat.
Last time out, Spurs picked up a routine win over Nottingham Forest to end a tough week for the club on a mildly positive note. With now just one game a week to focus on, following the club’s exit from the Champions League, the hope is that Conte’s experience will take them over the line for the second consecutive season.
Saints, meanwhile, lost to Brentford on Wednesday but took points from Chelsea and Manchester United under the watch of manager Ruben Selles. Fighting for their lives, Southampton will prove tricky for Spurs. Follow all the action LIVE with the Standard Sport match blog! Dan Kilpatrick will provide expert on-the-ground analysis.
70min: Triple replacement for Southampton. Elyounoussi, Stuart Armstrong and Adams are out, Alcarez, Kamaldeen and Mara are on.
Kane’s goal: It’s Kane’s 12th goal in 14 games against Southampton. Incredible record.
It is also his ninth headed goal of the season in the league, which equals the record held by Duncan Ferguson.
65mins: That’s better of Kane!
Climbs the highest to head home with a brilliant cross from Kulusevski towards the back post.
63min: Everything is very messy. Lots of mistakes, misplaced passes and solid tackles.
60mins: Spurs cross the halfway line and it’s four against three in their favour… Kane trips and trips and trips with the ball, before ignoring his teammates and jumping over the bar.
A real mess, that.
58min: The Saints have their tails up and the roar gets louder as Walcott finds himself in space on the flank again, but this time looks up to find nowhere to pass, so just…crossed the ball in the hands of Forster.
Dan Kilpatrick at St. Mary’s
“Spurs have become accustomed to quick second-half starts this season, but they couldn’t have looked less prepared for the restart here.
“The Saints have their tails high now and the crowd behind them.”
54min: A half-penalty screams for Spurs as Perisic’s shot hits Maitland-Niles’ arm, VAR watches for a long time but are unconvinced.
51min: Brushes the roof of the net but never worries Forster.
50mins: No more worries for Spurs as Southampton win a free-kick from around 35 yards out. Ward-Prowse likes that, of course.
