Pedro Porro has called on the Tottenham players to stick together after they were held to a draw at St Mary’s – a result which came as a blow to the club’s hopes of finishing in the top four.

Spurs had a real opportunity to tighten their grip on Champions League qualification and temporarily even move above Manchester United into third place in the Premier League table with a win over Southampton, who currently sit at the bottom of the league.

It looked as though the Lilywhites were going to get the job done as they led 3-1 with 13 minutes of normal time left but a late comeback from the Saints saw them salvage a point.

Antonio Conte did not mince his words in his post-match press conference, laying the blame squarely on the Spurs players’ attitude and accusing all 11 players of playing for themselves rather than the team (Football.London).

Porro, who opened his account in a Tottenham shirt with a brilliant finish in the first half, took to Instagram after the game to admit that it was a bittersweet afternoon for him.

He wrote: ‘Happy for my first goal in the Premier League but sad for the result, it was not the result we wanted. We have to stay together Tottenham.’

Perhaps Porro’s performance was the biggest bright spot to come from yesterday’s game as the 23-year-old once again showed the kind of threat he offers in the final third.

The Spaniard is now starting to get adjusted to English football and looks like he is going to be a top player for us for many years to come.
