Southampton came from a goal down to stun Tottenham

Southampton 2-1 Tottenham

Southampton scored two late goals in five minutes to secure a stunning victory against Tottenham and remain clear of the Premier League bottom three.

Tottenham scored 26 minutes goal after several missed opportunity, but Southampton put up a stronger performance after the break and stunned the visitors with two late goals.

Harry Kane scored his seventh goal in his last five meeting against Southampton and his 200th career goal, after Dele Alli chipped a pass to the back post for the England forward, who slotted into the far post.

Spurs almost double their lead through Harry Kane, but the England internationals low shot towards the bottom corner is superbly tipped wide by Angus Gunn.

Yan Valery scored an equalizer for the home team after a delightful display and a pass from Stuart Armstrong, 77 minutes.

Then James Ward-Prowse got the winner with a sensational free-kick from 25 yards to keep the Saints two points ahead of Cardiff, who won at home to West Ham.

For the first time since December 2016 Southampton earn a second consecutive home win.

Tottenham, whose manager Mauricio Pochettino was in the stands as part of his two-match touchline ban, remain third after losing a third league game in four.

Manchester United, who were 13 points behind Spurs when Jose Mourinho was sacked as manager on 16 December, can move level on points with Spurs should they beat Arsenal on Sunday.
