Southampton vs. Tottenham Hotspur - Football Match Report

Tottenham boss Mauricio Pochettino accused his side of "arrogance" and "complacency" after a 2-1 loss at Southampton, which increased pressure on finishing in the top four.

- Spurs striker Kane has now scored 200 career goals for club and country combined (180 at club level and 20 for England).

However, the Saints came roaring back with two goals from Yan Valery and James Ward-Prowse in a much improved second-half display.

"I am a little bit anxious about this change from the first half to the second half - it's only one thing, it's mental".

Southampton matched the visitors during the early stages but Spurs soon stamped their authority on the game, with Dele Alli playing with the sharpness not befitting of a player who has spent over six weeks on the sidelines.

The second test event will take place on Saturday 30 March in a Spurs Legends game with a capacity of up to 45,000.

Pochettino said receiving the news ahead of Tottenham's Champions League win over Dortmund, marking their first quarter-final qualification in eight years, knocked his pre-match preparations. I want to see why and then talk a little bit more.

"It's about complacency, it's about arrogance in a bad way".

Fuelled by that apparent injustice, Benitez's men staged a remarkable second-half fightback with Rondon (65) and an Ayoze Perez double (81, 84) blitzing a crumbling Everton defence.

"It's important now to know that we need to fight a lot until the end of the season". How else to explain what took place on a wild afternoon on the south coast as Southampton staged a remarkable comeback to clinch a victory that will be spoken about in these parts for some time and has surely injected Ralph Husenhüttl's side with the belief they can, and will, avoid relegation.

- Southampton picked up their first Premier League victory over Spurs since May 2016 (2-1 under Ronald Koeman), having failed to win any of the previous five.

"I'd like to be back there one day and to coach football that wins and that people like".

"I am very disappointed, we were better in everything and then we lose the game".

"We need to be careful how we assess ourselves and it's so important to live in the reality".

"Now I need to think".

"The good thing was we were only one goal down, that gave us the chance to change a few things and to force a little nervousness and put them out of their comfort zone because Tottenham were awesome (in the first half)", said the Austrian. We live in the perception and reality.

"We are fighting against big sides [for the top four]", said Pochettino.
