VIEW FROM THE BENCH

Mauricio Pochettino has spoken a lot about his side’s resilience and maturity this season but Tottenham have now dropped 20 points from winning positions this season. The Argentinian must find a way to instil his side with more composure when in front. Ronald Koeman, meanwhile, will be delighted to see Southampton follow up last week’s win against Manchester City. His team were organised and effective on the counter-attack. European football beckons.

MOAN OF THE MATCH

Hugo Lloris has been one of the stars of Tottenham’s season, proving himself as one of the top goalkeepers in the division. But the Frenchman was off-colour here, letting Davis’ first-half finish squirm under his body and then seemingly slow to get down to the midfielder’s winner.

WHO’S UP NEXT

  1. Spurs averaged 70 points in the 4 seasons before Pochettino came, they are on 70 points now with 1 game remaining. Last season saw a dip in form as Pochettino restructured the squad and this was a development season so I think he is on track. I do think though that Spurs' achievements have been massively overstated as well as Arsenal's failings who could still finish above us. What a job Arsene has done and how I would love to have had their "problems" the last 18 seasons.

  2. Does MoPo not like Son Heung-min? I think we would have beaten Chelsea if Son hadn't been replaced with Mason. And against Southampton, I thought he looked like good bet to score a second … and then MoPo took him off.
