Southampton 1-1 Tottenham: Match recap

Southampton v Tottenham LIVE Will Harry Kane find the net again

Southampton v Tottenham LIVE Will Harry Kane find the net again

Tottenham boss Mauricio Pochettino has told his Champions League-chasing side to up their game or risk missing out on a place in the Premier League's top four after failing to beat relegation-threatened Southampton.

Tottenham head in to the weekend action sitting fifth in the Premier League table and three points behind fourth-placed Liverpool but they can move level on points with the Reds with a win on Sunday.

Southampton boss Mauricio Pellegrino made a decision to throw on Sofiane Boufal not long afterwards in order to give his side a bit of spark, and a few minutes later his fellow Argentinean Mauricio Pochettino did the same by bringing on Erik Lamela for the ineffective Son Heung-min.

But there was no suggestion that the players were not playing for him as the home team started on the front foot, hunting down Spurs at every chance. "In Argentina we say that the job is the electric chair - it is not easy to stay in the seat". Kane probably should have grabbed his 100th Premier League goal after another good delivery by Ben Davies, but the in form striker uncharacteristically missed the ball completely with his attempted volley.

Defender Maya Yoshida missed Southampton's league draw with Watford last weekend due to a hamstring injury and is the only doubt for Pellegrino's side ahead of Saturday's clash with Tottenham Hotspur.

Tottenham are determined to keep this summer - even if they receive a world-record bid. To win the game we should do better and play better.

- Since losing five consecutive top-flight trips to Southampton between 2000 and 2005, without scoring, Spurs are now unbeaten in their last six league visits to St Mary's (W4 D2).

"If we are waiting now, it's because now we can not be too anxious to try to make quick deals". The Saints managed to deal well with Harry Kane, a feat that not many teams have managed this season, and they really should have won this game late on.
