HARRY KANE SCORE AS TOTTENHAM HOTSPUR SUFFER 2-1 DEFEAT AT SAINT MARY STADIUM

Southampton bounced back to winning ways in the Premier League following their 2-1 win over Tottenham Hotspur at St. Mary’s Stadium.

The Saints, who are heavily battling relegation suffered a 3-2 defeat to Manchester United at Old Trafford in their last outing.

However, coach Ralph Hasenhüttl’s men came from a goal down to stun Spurs after normal regulation period to remain two points above relegation waters after 30 matches.

England striker Harry Kane opened scoring for the visitors in the 26th minute after beautifully powering home an assist from Dele Alli.

But that lead did not last until the end of the match as Yann Valery’s superb strike 76th minute restored parity for the hosts. And James Ward Prowse late minute strike handed the home team maximum points, but remain in the relegation battle.

After this defeat, Mauricio Pochettino’s men are at risk of falling out of the Champions League spot with Manchester United, Arsenal and Chelsea not leaving any stone un-turned.

Continentour.com.ng earlier reported that Arsenal held Tottenham Hotspur to 1-1 draw in the north London derby last weekend.

Juventus bound Aaron Ramsey opened scoring for the Gunners in the 16th minute after being set up by Nigeria’s Alex Iwobi. But a 76th minute penalty from Harry Kane ensured the hosts share the spoils at the end of regulation period.
