Tottenham Hotspur made it three defeats from their last four games as they lost 2-1 to Southampton yesterday.

Spurs were in cruise control in the first half and were unlucky not to go into the break two or three to the good.

The Lilywhites carved chance after chance, with Harry Kane narrowly missing on numerous occasions before putting his side ahead.

Spurs also hit the post two times in the first half and it seemed to be a matter of how many they could get, rather than whether they would win the tie.

However, the team came out in the second half in an arrogant fashion, reflecting this belief that they had already won the match.

As a result, Southampton were able to claw their way back into the game, eventually nicking the win.

Spurs are now well in the dogfight for the top four places, as their wait for a trophy continues.

It has been over a decade since Tottenham last won a trophy, and Pochettino has never won one as a manager.

This also means that Harry Kane has never lifted a piece of silverware, something that Teddy Sheringham believes is an issue.

He said (BBC): “Harry will want to win stuff. He will be wanting to play at the very top.

“It’s going to be a big factor with Harry that Tottenham are moving into a new stadium – but they have to win something.

“At the moment, they are nearly at the top. For me, that’s not good enough for Harry Kane because he is tops.

“There is going to come a time in Harry’s career when he is going to say: ‘I can’t be a nearly man any more. We have to go one step further for me to win things in my football career’

“You don’t get any younger in football and it’s amazing how quickly it flies by.”
