Southampton talking points

Tottenham’s top-four chances were dealt a bitter blow on Wednesday night as Southampton scored twice in two minutes late on to win a breathless Premier League encounter 3-2.

Spurs looked to be heading towards claiming all three points after a Jan Bednarek own goal and a Son Heung-min effort either side of Armando Broja’s equaliser gave them a 2-1 lead.

But headed goals from Mohamed Elyounoussi and Che Adams in quick succession turned the game on its head and handed the win to Saints.

Tottenham’s haphazard defending and Conte’s tactical set-up provided just some of the game’s big talking points.
