TOT vs SOU As It Happened
Key moments so far
- Danny Ings gives Southampton the lead through a superb header
- Gareth Bale scored against his former club to draw Spurs level on the hour mark
- Southampton the livelier of the two sides in the first-half, but Spurs shone in the second
- VAR played a huge role in the second-half at Tottenham Hotsput Stadium
FULL TIME: Spurs 2-1 Saints
Late heartbreak for Southampton as they fall to a 2-1 defeat to Tottenham in the Premier League. Spurs came from behind to ensure they secured all three points under new boss Ryan Mason. A disappointing evening in London.
Yellow Card for Eric Dier (Tottenham Hotspur)
Six additional minutes
Saints have got six additional minutes here to salvage something from this game.
Son gets the second
No denying this one. Heung-Min Son's penalty rockets into the back of the net.
Heung-Min Son (89’) | 2 – 1
VAR Decision: Penalty awarded for Tottenham Hotspur  was confirmed
Yellow Card for Moussa Djenepo (Southampton)
High pressure from Spurs
Bednarek blocks Lamela to send the ball behind for a corner. Son loops the ball towards the centre of the box but the initial threat is cleared. Plenty of drama ensues as there are initial shouts for handball as the ball breezes past Vestergaard's arm. Then a challenge from Moussa Djenepo leads to further calls for a penalty.
Saints looking weary
The high intensity of the first-half has undoubtedly met its end in the second half of this contest. With 5 minutes to go, can Saints reignite the spark that shot them into the lead?
VAR Decision: Goal awarded for Tottenham Hotspur [Heung-Min Son] was cancelled
A lifeline for Southampton. Lucas Moura was blocking the line of sight for Alex McCarthy from an offside position and Son's goal is disallowed.
Heung-Min Son (74’) | 1 – 1
A slower second-half
The tempo has definitely lulled in the second-half with Spurs now holding much greater control of the ball. The introduction of Moussa Djenepo should inject some momentum back into the Saints side.
Vital clearance from Salisu
It seems the goal has sparked a new lease of life into this Spurs side as they continue to push for a second goal. Bale comes painstakingly close but Salisu clears his line just in time.
Beautiful from Bale
We all knew it was coming, Bale gets the equaliser for Spurs against his former side.
Gareth Bale (59’) | 1 – 1
Ings tries for a second
Danny Ings tries his luck for his second of the match but it causes no problems for Hugo Lloris.
Spurs first shot on goal
Another moment of inspiration from Gareth Bale who is let in by Lucas Moura. Some clever play gets him around the Saints defence as he gets Spurs' first shot on goal of the match. Lucky for Saints, it finds the safe hands of Alex McCarthy.
Bale starting to shine
Gareth Bale has come out with a spark in the second-half and has found himself creating chances on goal twice already. Will the Welshman score against his former club?
Strong from Salisu
Gareth Bale finds himself in acres of space as he charges towards goal but Salisu stands strong and dispossesses Bale.
No changes from either side at the break. Another big 45 minutes needed from Saints.
HALF TIME: Spurs 0-1 Saints
What a first half in North London. Saints have put on a cracking performance for the first 45 and deserve to have the advantage at the break. Spurs sparked into life just before Coote blew his whistle for half-time, can Saints extend the lead in the second-half? Time will tell ...
First real threat from Spurs
Bale gets the corner in and and the ball comes ever so close to falling at the feet of Son, but Adams just about gets the ball away to clear the threat.
Yellow Card for Tanguy Ndombele (Tottenham Hotspur)
Dangerous free-kick for Spurs
Armstrong knocks Son on the edge of the box as Spurs win a free-kick in a threatening position but Dier's shot goes straight into the Southampton wall.
Saints continue to press
Tottenham have failed to generate real momentum in response to Saints' goal. Ings releases Walcott on the right but his effort is deflected behind for a corner.
Prowsey 🤝 Ingsy
They don't get much better than that.
DANNY INGS YOU BEAUTY
Half an hour played at Tottenham Hotspur Stadium and Saints have the lead. A fantastic ball in from James Ward-Prowse who finds the head of Danny Ings. Cool, calm and collected - he finds the back of the net to give Saints the advantage.
Danny Ings (29’) | 0 – 1
Spurs push forward
Moura wins the ball in the centre of the field and releases Reguilon on the left. A beautifully timed tackle from Kyle Walker-Peters in the box clears the threat and earns Spurs a corner of their own.
Tella outmoves Aurier and earns the corner. James Ward-Prowse loops the ball in nicely but David Coote hands Spurs a free-kick for an infringement in the box.
Lively start from Nathan Tella
Nathan Tella returns to the starting XI and is clearly focused on fortifying his place in the squad, looking a real threat on the attack for Saints.
SO. CLOSE. 🤯
Kyle Walker-Peters finds himself in plenty of space down the left flank and sets his sights towards goal. Lloris again comes to the rescue for Spurs and perfectly times his advance to deny Walker-Peters a shot on goal.
Chance for Tottenham
Former Saint, Gareth Bale, is on hand to lead the ball into the path of Lo Celso but his effort goes wide.
Spurs pick up the pace
Tottenham have picked up the pace after a dominant opening from Saints. Son and Reguilon work together down the left flank to create a fine push forward for the home side.
Bright start from Saints
We knew from Hasenhüttl's pre-match thoughts and the team he's fielded that Saints were pressing for an attacking game. What a lively opening 5 minutes to prove that ...
SAINTS DENIED BY LLORIS 😳
It's a fast-paced start from Saints who have already hit Tottenham full-throttle. Nathan Tella swings in a magnificent ball to Mohammed Salisu, but Lloris produces an incredible save to deny the thumping header. Adams smashes the ball on the rebound but Lloris makes another remarkable save. A couple of James Ward-Prowse corners add to the threat but are eventual cleared by the Tottenham defense.18.05
