  • Spurs held after throwing away lead
  • Miss chance to go third in table
  • Ward-Prowse rescues precious point

TELL ME MORE: Pedro Porro smashed the visitors ahead just before half-time with a vicious finish from close range to open his account for his new club. Che Adams responded straight after half-time, before Harry Kane headed Spurs back in front. Ivan Perisic then scored his first goal for Tottenham to make it 3-1, although Theo Walcott pulled one back almost immediately to set up a nervy finish for Antonio Conte's side. Southampton continued to press and were rewarded in stoppage-time when Pape Matar Sarr conceded a penalty and Ward-Prowse made no mistake with his spot-kick.

THE MVP: Southampton captain Ward-Prowse stepped up when it mattered to complete an impressive fightback from the hosts. The midfielder showed plenty of composure to thump his stoppage-time penalty past Fraser Forster in the Tottenham goal into the top corner. The goal is Ward-Prowse's seventh Premier League goal of the season - no Southampton player has more than the skipper.

THE BIG LOSER: Richarlison's early injury was another setback for the Brazilian. but fingers will be pointed at Sarr for Tottenham's failure to take all three points. The 20-year-old had only been on the pitch for a matter of minutes when he fouled Ainsley Maitland-Niles and conceded a penalty. What had looked like being a good day for Tottenham suddenly became something of a nightmare as Conte's side threw away a victory against the Premier League's bottom side that would have taken them third in the table.
