Southampton came back from 2-1 down to win the game 3-2 late on in the game against Tottenham Hotspurs in the Gameweek 24 of the Premier League on Wednesday.

Southampton took the game to Tottenham early on and Mohamed Elyounoussi picked out Che Adams with a perfect cross. But the striker only managed to find the goalkeeper. Cristian Romero’s goal was ruled out. Just minutes later Sergio Reguilon shot was saved by Fraser Forster. Spurs did take the lead from a Jan Bednarek own goal.

Just minutes later Southampton took the lead. Armando Broja tapped in from a Romain Perraud cross after a horrible defending from the Tottenham defence. The teams were level until the 70th minute when Son tapped in from a Lucas Moura cross.

But the saints made a brilliant comeback late on. Mohamed Elyounoussi scored from a brilliant James Ward-Prowse cross in the 90th minute. Just 2 minutes later Che Adams headed in to get Southampton from another brilliant cross from James Ward-Prowse. Steven Bergwijn came off the bench to rescue the match once again for Antonio Conte. The substitution nearly worked as Bergwijn scored but the goal was ruled out. Southampton rise to 10th in the League table with this victory.

Tottenham Hotspurs player ratings

Hugo Lloris 6/10

He made a very good save to deny Che Adams early on. He could not do anything to stop the three goals Spurs conceded.

Sergio Reguilon 7/10

Had a decent game, should have scored the chance early on. Always looked an outlet down the Tottenham left.

Davinson Sanchez 4/10

He looked shaky for the whole game. Should have cleaned the ball way before for the Saints first goal.

Cristian Romero 6/10

His goal was ruled out due to offside. But no doubt Spurs’ best defender on the night.

Ben Davies 4/10

At fault for the Southampton first goal. Very poor performance overall.

Emerson Royal 3/10

Really struggled down the right flank. Got seriously exposed down the right channel and offered no output in the attack.

Harry Winks 5/10

Really struggled in the first half. But looked way better after Bentancur’s introduction in the middle of the park.

Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg 5/10

Crossed the ball for Jan Bednarek’s own goal. But really struggled in the middle of the park and was substituted in the second half.

Lucas Moura 7/10

Had some good touches on the ball and set up the Son goal to put Spurs in front.

Heung-min Son 7/10

Nealy got in to tap in the first goal but did grab a goal later on in the match.

Harry Kane 6/10

Made some excellent passes from a deeper position. But should have scored with that header in the second half.
