Tottenham Hotspur go into the break tonight at 1-1 after letting a one-goal lead slip yet again against Southampton in the FA Cup.

Spurs were 1-0 at St Mary’s last month in the first tie but conceded in the 87th minute to force a replay at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium tonight.

Tottenham went 1-0 up in the replay after Tanguy Ndombele’s wayward shot received a fortunate deflection on its way through, taking it past the keeper for the opener.

However, the Saints had been by far the better team from the off, passing rings around the Spurs midfield and defence.

15 minutes before the break, Hugo Lloris could only parry a relatively simple shot back out into the path of Shane Long, who gladly tapped home a goal that had been coming.

Spurs are without Erik Lamela and Giovani Lo Celso tonight and they are lacking the creativity going forward.
