Relentless Southampton secured a dramatic 3-3 draw with Spurs

Che Adams secures a first half equaliser for Southampton

Coming into the contest having suffered consecutive defeats to Wolves and Leicester in their two previous PL away trips, Spurs knew a positive start was needed against their struggling opponents.

However, it was Southampton who edged a closely-fought opening half-hour, with Ward-Prowse firing the hosts’ best opportunity wastefully wide of the target.

Spurs gradually gained an upper hand in proceedings as the first half progressed, and duly took the lead on the stroke of HT.

Son Heung-min showed the impressive vision to pick out the marauding run of Pedro Porro, and the Spaniard took one touch to compose himself before firing a powerful close-range strike beyond Gavin Bazunu to give the visitors a timely breakthrough.

Southampton emerged after the restart eager to claw their way back into the contest, and found an immediate response within 45 seconds, as Ché Adams tucked home from Theo Walcott’s low delivery.

Buoyed by the equaliser, the hosts looked to capitalise on their momentum going into the final 30 minutes, but Spurs continued to provide a threat at the other end, and it was the visitors who regained the lead in the 65th minute when Harry Kane rose highest in the box to direct Dejan Kulusevski’s cross into the roof of the net.

Spurs extended their advantage 10 minutes later through a clinical strike from Ivan Perišić which initially appeared to kill the contest.

The Saints were defiant however and immediately reduced the deficit to just a single goal, as former-Arsenal player Theo Walcott slotted beyond Fraser Forster to set up a tantalising finale.

Southampton went in pursuit of a late leveller and were given a golden opportunity in stoppage time when Pape Sarr tripped Ainsley Maitland-Niles.

Ward-Prowse stepped up and confidently fired his spot-kick into the top corner, earning the hosts a dramatic share of the spoils with Spurs players in disbelief.
