Tottenham lead Southampton 1-0 at halftime at St Mary’s on the back of a fantastic performance. Spurs dominated the entire half right from kick off fashioning several chances and could have put the game out of sight by now.

Southampton haven’t troubled Spurs at all going forward with Hugo Lloris not being called upon to make any saves in the first half.

Dele Alli returned to the starting line up for Spurs after being sidelined for two months with a hamstring injury. Alli has had a fantastic game so far, taking up intelligent positions and pulling the Saints defenders out of shape.

The England international had a major hand in Spurs’ opener as his perfect ball over the ball put Kane through on goal, before the England striker got the ball out of his feet and put it through the goalkeeper’s legs, to score his 200th career goal.

Here’s how some Spurs fans reacted to the first half:

Have something to tell us about this article?


  1. Another awful Spurs performance against a poor side, totally dominant first half but unable to change our game in second when we looked more like the relegation threatened side. Poch unable to change things, has he taken us as far as he can, I think so? I can’t recall the last league game we dominated and won. We’ve ground out results with no improvement. Two good results against Dortmund can’t shake my belief and I think we rode our luck in both games. Time to step up Spurs otherwise it’s Thursday night football next year.
