Southampton 2 Tottenham 1: Ward-Prowse brilliance leaves Spurs stunned

Tottenham Arsenal charged for failing to control players

Spurs have now taken just one point from their last four Premier League games to see their lead over Manchester United, Arsenal and Chelsea in the fight for a top four finish diminish.

The north London side dominated the first-half at St Mary's as their manager watched on from the stands, with Harry Kane giving them a 1-0 lead at the break.

Goals from Yan Valery and James Ward-Prowse in the final 14 minutes gave Southampton a vital three points in their bid to avoid relegation.

"Sure, every fan wants to have as much success as possible but I think we also have our level where we can over-perform, where we make surprising moments".

"It's about complacency, it's about arrogance in a bad way". Add in the two-legged Champions League quarter-final in the same month as well as managing a squad ravaged with injuries of late, Solskjaer's most stressful time could lie ahead.

With the prospect of returning to White Hart Lane prompting chants of "We're going home" from the large travelling support, it looked like being a memorable afternoon for the visitors after Kane's eighth goal in nine games against Southampton.

"If Brighton lose their FA Cup quarter-final match on 17 March we shall play Brighton on 6/7 April (subject to Champions League scheduling) and Crystal Palace on 23/24 April".

His goal was spectacular - only Matt Le Tissier has scored more direct free-kicks in the Premier League for the club - but Ward-Prowse was excellent overall, completing 89.3 per cent of his attempted passes. Not only did we get the three points but Chelsea also dropped two unexpected points against Wolves, and suddenly the race for the Top Four has taken on a completely different complexion.

"Of course we are disappointed", the Chelsea winger said.

"But still we are in a position that everyone should sign for at the beginning of the season".

"We put in a good solid performance against Fulham and at Manchester United we played well and should have come away with something more".

Pochettino has criticised his side's mentality after poor results ended their title hopes, but two wins over Borussia Dortmund showed a maturity that was missing at the same stage against Juventus previous year. "To be consistent, you need time, if you want to be a real contender in the future".
