Southampton’s run of away wins ended as they lost 2-1 to Tottenham at White Hart Lane.
The Saints had won their last two away matches – against Watford and Sunderland – but were unable to fight their way past a strong Spurs side.
Despite missing top scorer Harry Kane, Spurs were sharp from the off and took the lead in the 14th minute. Christian Eriksen brought the ball forward and lashed home a left-footed effort into the corner from 20-yards.
Southampton’s misery was soon compiled when January signing Manolo Gabbiadini went off injured and moments later Spurs won a penalty.
Steven Davis brought down Dele Alli in the box and the latter stepped up to put Spurs 2-0 up.
James Ward-Prowse fired Southampton back into the game in the 52nd minute with a well controlled volley but Spurs were able to hold on and claim all three points.
