No Kane, no problem: Tottenham beats Southampton 2-1 in EPL

"[Janssen] will now have the possibility to play more and be more involved".

"Hopefully he will not be out too long", Saints manager Claude Puel said.

"It's good but we need to be careful with the injury".

Pochettino will make late decisions on Kyle Walker and Victor Wanyama after defender Walker hurt his ankle at home on Monday while midfielder Wanyama sustained a knock against Millwall last weekend.

SOUTHAMPTON: Forster -1, Soares 2, Stephens -1, Yoshida -1, Bertrand 4, Davis 0, Romeu 2, Ward-Prowse 8, Tadic 0, Redmond -1, Gabbiadini 0. Spurs nabbed Wanyama for a snip at £9m because he was in the a year ago of his contract but Saints would demand huge fees for Van Dijk, Bertrand, Ward-Prowse and Redmond, all of whom are tied to long-term deals. "It's a great chance for them".

I understand they are not happy with some situations.


Southampton are a odd team and very hard to predict, but I am going to go for a scruffy Spurs win - even without Kane, they still should have enough. "He is a fighter." - and he has been "very impressed" with striker Manolo Gabbiadini. It's a good thing for them and congratulations to them and to the club. I think the team now is completely different, that was in September.

The youngster won a penalty which he converted himself following Christian Eriksen's opener at White Hart Lane.

Southampton FC is unpredictable in this Premier League so far.

Tottenham Hotspur made it 10 successive Premier League home wins on Sunday afternoon after they defeated a spirited Southampton side 2-1 at White Hart Lane.

But Southampton were unable to build a head of steam.

They could even have added a third goal before the end of the game when Vincent Janssen, on as a second-half substitute, bulldosed his way through the Saints defence but saw his powerful shot saved by Forster.

Spurs qualified for the Champions League but were dumped out in the group stage and were also eliminated from the Europa League.

Spurs are the only side in the English top-flight yet to suffer a defeat on home soil this season. He had won it and he converted it. Alli now has 17 goals in all competitions this season. They are still unbeaten in games without their main men, with three victories and three draws.
