Southampton 1-1 Tottenham: Spurs fail to make Saints pay ten after Kane penalty
| Local News | Local News
The Saints had the best of the first half by far and were rewarded for their hard work with a nice strike from James Ward-Prowse from the edge of the box.
Mohammed Salisu’s long throw wasn’t cleared far enough and Ward-Prowse scored for the third game in a row.
St Mary’s loyalists grew increasingly frustrated with referee Anthony Taylor’s decision making, which led to Ralph Hasenhuttl getting a yellow card shortly after Salisu won his first yellow.
But there was nothing to complain about when the defender knocked out Son Heung-min in the box after 39 minutes, giving Spurs a comeback in the game Kane duly took – scoring with Southampton at ten due to the second booking by Salisu.
Not like the hosts needed, but a serious warning sign came early in the second period when Harry Winks released Kane for a calm one-on-one finish. Still, VAR rightly called the game back for a narrow offside.
And yet the hard work at the start and the defensive strength that Southampton had shown has remained.
Tottenham saw another goal dismissed after Fraser Forster was ruled fouled by Matt Doherty as he harvested a high cross, while the Irishman fell short with two good point attempts behind.
