Southampton vs Tottenham LIVE!

Harry Kane scored for the third straight Premier League game and was denied a second goal by the narrowest of offside calls in Tottenham's 1-1 draw at 10-man Southampton on Tuesday.

Kane converted a penalty in the 41st minute after Son Heung-min was tripped by Mohammed Salisu, which earned the Southampton defender a second yellow card.

Southampton had looked good to that point, opening the scoring through James Ward-Prowse's fierce shot from just inside the area in the 25th, but was pinned back in its own half in the second-half.

Tottenham looked to have taken the lead in the 53rd when Kane ran onto Harry Winks' ball over Southampton's high line and dispatched a finish past Fraser Forster, only for the goal to be ruled out for offside after a video review.

The visitors were even more aggrieved in the 67th when another goal was disallowed, this time after Forster came out to catch the ball under pressure from Matt Doherty and dropped it onto his own heel. The ball ricocheted back into the net but the referee blew for a foul by Doherty, even though contact appeared minimal.

Tottenham stayed unbeaten in the league under Antonio Conte since his appointment at the start of November and moved five points behind fourth-place Arsenal — with two games in hand — in the race for Champions League qualification.

Kane had previously scored in back-to-back games, against Liverpool and Crystal Palace, when Tottenham also played against 10 men for a long spells following red cards.

It was pretty much all Tottenham late on but here is how Southampton very nearly nicked the win...

17:04 , Marc Mayo

Worth nothing that Antonio Conte is now the first Tottenham manager to go their first seven Premier League games without losing.

At times, that looked pretty unlikely today.

16:58 , Marc Mayo

No doubt as to the happier team.

Full time! Southampton 1-1 Tottenham

16:54 , Marc Mayo

90+6 mins: The whistle blows!

16:53 , Marc Mayo

90+5 mins: Save!

Still time for Spurs to come again and Forster palms over Gil’s effort.

16:52 , Marc Mayo

90+4 mins: Wide!

Huge pressure from the visitors and Winks tees up a fine ball towards Kane, who has Walker-Peters all over him (legally, it’s worth adding) and puts his header wide at the back stick.

16:51 , Marc Mayo

90+3 mins: No rush from Ward-Prowse over the corner, which is eventually pushed out to Redmond.

Lloris snaffles up the second cross back in.

16:50 , Marc Mayo

90+2 mins: Chance!

Broja punishes Dier’s error but Sanchez throws in a hearty block to turn his shot over.

16:50 , Marc Mayo

90+1 mins: Forster claims a header that loops off Son from close range, perhaps where Tottenham would rather Kane be waiting.

16:49 , Marc Mayo

90 mins: Near enough 15 men in the Southampton box as Winks cuts a ball in from the right, with Bednarek there once again.

Gil sends it straight back and Walker-Peters has to twist to block it.

16:47 , Marc Mayo

89 mins: We will have FIVE added minutes at St Mary’s...

16:46 , Marc Mayo

87 mins: Moura spins on the edge of the box and hits an effort early, which is straight at Forster and beaten away.

The Brazilian has tried hard to make something happen since coming on.

16:44 , Marc Mayo

85 mins: With a bit of treatment, Walker-Peters is allowed to continue.

16:43 , Marc Mayo

84 mins: Once again the ball is loaded into the box and Southampton do enough to prevent Forster being called into action, this time leading to Walker-Peters receiving a hefty whack to his head.

16:41 , Marc Mayo

82 mins: Another attack is repelled, this time a nice Davies cross being cleared and Kane being called offside after Hojbjerg’s cute flick back into the box.

In the next Saints change, Adam Armstrong comes off for Redmond.

16:37 , Marc Mayo

79 mins: Gil works a yard well and puts a good ball in, which Son heads straight into Forster’s hands.

16:36 , Marc Mayo

77 mins: That change does not mean Doherty is back in his normal right-back slot and Gil is instead the right-back. A bit odd.

16:35 , Marc Mayo

76 mins: High, wide and not at all handsome from Doherty as he tries to hook a lovely Winks ball in with his right foot. A manner of scoring that chance that was simply never on.

Conte swaps Royal out for Gil.

16:34 , Marc Mayo

75 mins: Ward-Prowse’s cross lands in a dangerous area and is cleared. Diallo could have gambled a bit more to get on the end of it.

16:33 , Marc Mayo

74 mins: Rare move forward for Saints with Broja giving them someone to hit up front, and he wins a corner off Davies...

Dan Kilpatrick at St Mary’s

16:31 , Marc Mayo

Spurs can feel very hard done by after another effort is harshly ruled out, this time a Forster own goal after the goalkeeper spilled the ball under pressure from Doherty.

Both sides look tired and you wonder if Spurs have enough in the tank to capitalise on their extra man.

16:31 , Marc Mayo

72 mins: It’s all Spurs pressure as the final knockings of this game approach, can anyone grab the winner?

16:30 , Marc Mayo

71 mins: That is all for Long today and it’s no surprise to see Chelsea loanee Broja come on for the final 20 minutes.

Also, Winks was booked a handball a moment ago, for those keeping up a tally.

16:28 , Marc Mayo

70 mins: Chance!

Son gets the better of Valery and Doherty overlaps down the left, but on his weaker foot he opts to poke an effort goalwards which Forster deals with.

16:27 , Marc Mayo

68 mins: Again, Tottenham break in but a foul is given before Son can get his shot away.

Southampton are defending with all their might here.

16:26 , Marc Mayo

66 mins: The ball is in the back of the net yet it’s ruled out.

Winks’ high cross looks set for Forster and he just about has the ball claimed when he clatters into Doherty, although that’s far from an obvious foul.

16:24 , Marc Mayo

65 mins: A sweet move finds Son by the byline on the right and Bednarek covers across really nicely, throwing in a block that rebounds off the Spurs man for a goal kick.

16:21 , Marc Mayo

61 mins: Dier’s block on that shot was absolutely fine, and came off his shoulder with his arm tight to his body.

It’s then the defender’s turn to direct his anger at the official after failing to win a free-kick while slicing the ball into touch.

Ahead of the throw-in, Moura replaces Dele.

16:19 , Marc Mayo

60 mins: Walker-Peters wins the ball in the final third and Stuart Armstrong whacks a shot into a defender.

Shouts for handball are turned down, though.

16:18 , Marc Mayo

59 mins: Son is looking sharp in the second-half and gets on the end of Davies’ cross from the left, which is turned behind for a corner.

The Korean puts the ball in himself yet Saints repel it easily enough.

16:16 , Marc Mayo

57 mins: Chants of “you’re not fit to referee” ringing around St Mary’s.

Perhaps slightly harsh on the official, from a neutral’s perspective, but there we go.

16:15 , Marc Mayo

An incredibly tight offside call rules out Kane’s goal and denies Spurs the lead. Still, a very encouraging moment for both Kane and Winks, who unlocked Saints with a cute pass.

16:14 , Marc Mayo

54 mins: That has to serve simply as a serious warning sign for Southampton, not like they needed one...

VAR was right to call Kane up, who was only inches offside but had gone too early.

16:12 , Marc Mayo

53 mins: Disallowed!

16:11 , Marc Mayo

52 mins: Kane latches onto Winks pass and finishes it off!

VAR wants to look at this though...

16:09 , Marc Mayo

51 mins: Adam Armstrong lunges for the ball but arrives late behind Royal’s touch, drawing the latest yellow card of the game.

16:09 , Marc Mayo

49 mins: Southampton between a rock and a hard place now as the ten-men sit deep but lack the man power to put together serious breaks.

How long will it be before Long is replaced by Broja up top?

16:05 , Marc Mayo

46 mins: That change means Doherty slots straight in down an unfamiliar left-back position, aided by Davies alongside him in defence.

Second-half begins!

16:04 , Marc Mayo

Doherty comes on for Reguilon in the only change, the Spaniard having been booked earlier on.

16:03 , Marc Mayo

Here come the players!

16:02 , Marc Mayo

Elsewhere today, West Ham have come back from a goal down to lead Watford through two quickfire Said Benrahma goals.

And another bad day is on the cards for Norwich, with Crystal Palace leading the Canaries 3-0 at Selhurst Park.

15:58 , Marc Mayo

The big question now is whether Southampton can regain their stronger foothold or if Tottenham can make the most of this somewhat-gifted route back into the match.

Second-half: Coming up!

Dan Kilpatrick at St Mary’s

15:54 , Marc Mayo

Spurs were struggling to find their feet until Salisu's foul on Son potentially flipped this game on its head. For second time in 48 hours, Spurs will play more than a half against 10 men.

But they still need to improve to win here. Boos for ref Anthony Taylor from around St. Mary's at the interval.

15:52 , Marc Mayo

Here is that Tottenham penalty incident, with VAR calling Son offside is there much to argue about?

Half-time! Southampton 1-1 Tottenham

15:48 , Marc Mayo

That’s the break after a half which was going all Southampton’s way until that red card.

Ward-Prowse’s opener was cancelled out by Kane’s penalty, after Salisu received a second yellow for clearly downing Son in the box.

15:46 , Marc Mayo

45+1 mins: Reguilon booked for going in late on Diallo.

15:46 , Marc Mayo

45 mins: A bit of Tottenham possession to see out the half, with three minutes added on.

Dan Kilpatrick at St Mary’s

15:44 , Marc Mayo

What a huge potential turning point that was. Saints were well in control but Salisu's trip on Son has let Spurs back into the game, and left the hosts a man down.

For the second time in 48 hours, Spurs will play more than half the match against ten men.

15:43 , Marc Mayo

43 mins: A break in play immediately from kick-off and Long receives a blow to the head competing for a long ball over the top.

No malice, the officials agree, and the Irishman is okay to continue.

15:43 , Marc Mayo

42 mins: The only question there was whether Son was offside as he went through on goal.

VAR was content that he was not and there was no need to review Salisu’s tackle, or second yellow.

GOAL! Southampton 1-1 Tottenham | Kane, 40'

15:41 , Marc Mayo

40 mins: Kane steps up... and scores in the top corner!

Penalty for Spurs! Red card for Saints!

15:39 , Marc Mayo

39 mins: Salisu brings down Son, a clear penalty and second yellow!

Dan Kilpatrick at St Mary’s

15:39 , Marc Mayo

After impressing against Liverpool, Dele and Winks have been poor so far here – although they're far from the only ones. No-one in a Spurs shirt is playing well and as half-time approach Conte's side are still yet to really settle into this game.

15:38 , Marc Mayo

37 mins: A really entertaining, open affair here with Southampton still playing and battling very well, and Tottenham fully direct and a danger on the break.

15:35 , Marc Mayo

35 mins: Single-minded approach from Son after being sent away on the break by Kane.

Reguilon and Royal were options but he hits it from range and Forsters holds onto it.

15:33 , Marc Mayo

33 mins: A hearty, ironic cheer when Long fells Winks and the Tottenham man lays on the ball waiting for the whistle, which in fact goes the other way.

15:31 , Marc Mayo

30 mins: That Southampton ire at Anthony Taylor goes a step too far in the ref’s mind and Hasenhuttl is booked for his remonstrations on the touchline.

Dan Kilpatrick at St Mary’s

15:30 , Marc Mayo

Saints deserve their lead but it was a cheap goal for Spurs to concede, as they failed to clear a long throw or close down Ward-Prowse quickly enough. This is a test for Conte's Spurs, who look sluggish and haven't really got going.

15:29 , Marc Mayo

29 mins: It’s Kane... through the wall and held comfortably by Forster.

15:28 , Marc Mayo

28 mins: A bit of a response from Tottenham and Winks wins a foul off Diallo in a good spot, a bit over eager from the Saints man.

Speaking of which, Salisu was booked for a challenge after the restart.

15:27 , Marc Mayo

26 mins: A set-piece is only cleared as far as the England international, ready and waiting on the 18-yard line.

And he hits a perfect, outside of the boot volley than flies past Lloris into the far corner!

GOAL! Southampton 1-0 Tottenham | Ward-Prowse, 24'

15:25 , Marc Mayo

24 mins: What a hit from Ward-Prowse!

15:23 , Marc Mayo

23 mins: Son sends in the first corner of the day, which is worked short and Forster strongly claims the eventual cross.

15:22 , Marc Mayo

21 mins: A break in play as Royal looks hurt after Long leaves a little bit on the Brazilian, although not enough to spare himself from the St Mary’s jeers.

Halfway through the first-half and Saints will certainly be the happier team.

15:20 , Marc Mayo

Spurs haven’t been allowed to settle and Saints look the likeliest to open the scoring.

But Walker-Peters needs to be careful against his former club after two fouls on Reguilon, the second of which earned him a yellow card. Spurs would love to play against ten men for a third league game running.

15:18 , Marc Mayo

17 mins: No sign of Southampton’s pressure fading despite that spell for Spurs.

Salisu loads a long throw into the box which Royal deals with.

15:15 , Marc Mayo

14 mins: Disallowed!

Son’s cross from the free-kick is met by Davies and the header hits the net, but he is one of four Tottenham men offside as the ball comes in.

15:14 , Marc Mayo

13 mins: Kane the architect again and Walker-Peters fails to get away with a tug back on Reguilon, and earns a yellow card in today’s brewing battle down the flank.

That’ll also be a one-game ban for the defender.

15:12 , Marc Mayo

12 mins: Better from Spurs, Kane beating a man but overhitting a through ball to Dele - who would have been clear on goal.

15:11 , Marc Mayo

10 mins: Valery, on his first Premier League outing of the season, tries a speculative shot from distance that smashes the advertising boards behind Lloris’ goal.

It’s all Saints so far...

Dan Kilpatrick at St Mary’s

15:10 , Marc Mayo

Spurs appear to be in the 3-5-2 system which was so effective against Liverpool, although Dele is playing high on the right, almost making it a 3-4-3 at times.

Saints are using a back three themselves to match Conte's Spurs. And the hosts have edged the first ten minutes.

15:08 , Marc Mayo

8 mins: Chance!

A solid start from Saints with Reguilon having a tough time against Walker-Peters, who floats a ball in that is just too high for Adam Armstrong to control. The header from eight yards out goes over.

15:07 , Marc Mayo

6 mins: Long is called offside after getting ahead of Sanchez and flashing a header wide, after a lovely cross from Walker-Peters.

That may have even been overturned, had it gone in and VAR taken a look. An early warning.

15:05 , Marc Mayo

4 mins: Dele shows his first glimpse at breaking forward into the channels, with the midfielder set up in the right-flank role usually held by Moura.

15:03 , Marc Mayo

3 mins: Adam Armstrong gets a first chance to show off his pace as he looks to breeze around Sanchez, but stumbles over the ball and Spurs clear.

15:02 , Marc Mayo

1 min: Looks like a back-five for Southampton to match their visitors, with ex-Spurs youngster Walker-Peters and Perraud the wing-backs and Valery the third central defender.

The two Armstrongs flank Long in attack.

Antonio Conte delivers his pre-match verdict, with no room for complacency despite a strong start at Spurs.

“We have to go game by game, step by step,” he tells Amazon Prime. “For sure today, to win here is not easy.

“Southampton won their last game against West Ham, who are a strong team. They bring an intensity and have worked under the same manager for several years - they are really dangerous.”

Ralph Hasenhuttl believes Tottenham have always been a big threat in attack but has praised Antonio Conte for sorting out the side’s defence since taking over.

He said: “There is not much better in the Premier League, so I think it is more important that he stabilised the squad defensively also, and this is what he definitely did.

“They are working harder, have definitely made a step forward. They are one of the best teams in the league. But we are not scared. We have shown that against top teams we can take points and this is our plan for Tuesday.”

14:24 , Marc Mayo

A landmark appearance for Eric Dier today!

14:19 , Marc Mayo

More drastic from the hosts with six changes, bringing Shane Long, Adam Armstrong, Romain Perraud, Stuart Armstrong, Ibrahima Diallo and Yann Valery introduced.

14:14 , Marc Mayo

So three changes for Tottenham as Dele Alli, Harry Winks and Ben Davies come into the XI for Oliver Skipp, Lucas Moura and Japhet Tanganga.

Young midfielder Harvey White is also included on the bench.

Southampton’s team today...

14:05 , Marc Mayo

Southampton XI: Forster; Walker-Peters, Bednarek, Salisu, Perraud; Diallo, Ward-Prowse; Valery, S. Armstrong, Long; A. Armstrong.

Subs: Caballero, Small, Simeu, Romeu, Walcott, Elyounoussi, Tella, Redmond, Broja.

How the visitors line up...

14:01 , Marc Mayo

Tottenham XI: Lloris; Sanchez, Dier, Davies; Royal, Winks, Hojbjerg, Reguilon; Dele, Son; Kane.

Subs: Gollini, Tanganga, Rodon, Doherty, Skipp, White, Ngombele, Gil, Moura.

13:53 , Marc Mayo

Team news will be with us shortly...

Head to head history

13:49 , Marc Mayo

Spurs have won the last three meetings between the teams, ending a run of only one win in four.

Southampton wins: 64

Draws: 50

Tottenham wins: 85

13:42 , Marc Mayo

More of the same would do nicely for Spurs today.

Standard Sport score prediction: Southampton 0-2 Tottenham

13:31 , Marc Mayo

Southampton, at their best, can give any team problems. Still, they were missing key players prior to the Boxing Day win over West Ham due to Covid and do not have the biggest squad in the world to cope with playing two games in such quick succession.

Spurs, on the other hand, look to be riding a crest of a wave under Conte.

Spurs to win 2-0.

13:20 , Marc Mayo

Tottenham predicted XI (3-4-2-1): Lloris; Tanganga, Dier, Davies; Doherty, Winks, Hojbjerg, Reguilon; Bergwijn, Son; Kane.

Early team news

13:14 , Marc Mayo

Giovani Lo Celso is injured for Spurs but Conte has revealed that his latest problem is not thought to be overly serious. Elsewhere, the likes of Harry Winks and Matt Doherty could come into the side amid such a quick turnaround in games.

For Saints, they missed Nathan Tella, Jack Stephens and Lyanco for the win over West Ham after positive Covid tests.
