Half-time at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium…

Tottenham Hotspur 2-1 Southampton

Spurs have come from behind to lead at the break.

During a frenetic start, there was an early shock for the hosts as James Ward-Prowse arrived to volley the saints into a twelfth-minute lead following Moussa Djenepo’s toil down the left.

Expectation turned to agitation. Spurs swiftly responded. Ryan Sessegnon ghosted in at the far post to meet Dejan Kulusevski’s pinpoint centre. Saints stopper, Gavin Bazunu, stood little chance as the ball fizzed into the net.

Bazunu blocked from Heung-Min Son. But when the home side recycled the resulting corner, Son crossed for Eric Dier, who beat Bazunu with the faintest flick header to turn the game on its head.
