Spurs open new top four spot with Southampton loss

The Premier League is down to its final decade of matches, and somehow Tottenham Hotspur failed to keep up the race, slipping to a 2-1 defeat to Southampton at the St Mary’s park.

The white Lily’s largely dominated the first half, as Harry Kane put the visitors ahead in the 26th minute, after being played in by Dele Alli.

Southampton however came out red-hot after the break, as Stuart Armstrong set up Yann Valery for the equalizer in the 76th minute of the second half, before James Ward Prowse stepped up in the 81st minute to deliver the knock out blow to Spurs from a free kick, following a foul by Kyle Walker-peters on Armstrong.

Spurs loss to Southampton stretches the White Lily’s Premier League win less run to four matches and whilst they still sit third on the log. It simply broads the gateway to missing out on a Champions League place, with Manchester United only three points behind and set to play Arsenal who are only a point further from the red devils.

Southampton on the other hand, stepped out of relegation zone and into 16th place with 30 points on the Premier League table.
