Southampton 1, Tottenham Hotspur 1: Mauricio Pochettino tells Spurs to up their game or risk losing out on Champions League qualification

Kane's equaliser, a header from Ben Davies' corner just 197 seconds after Davinson Sanchez's own goal, should have dented Southampton's already-fragile confidence and provided Spurs with a base to win the match but they were too slow and too disjointed without Eriksen.

But they could not find a victor in an entertaining second half at St Mary's, which also saw the home side come close to snatching a victory of their own.

Because he knows that if he lets Kane go it will send a message to manager Mauricio Pochettino that the Lilywhites are still a selling club, happy to develop young talent only to then sell them on to more ambitious clubs. Dusan Tadic fizzed the ball to the unmarked teenager, but Obafemi, only six yards out, failed to connect with the goal at his mercy.

Fernando Llorente was signed to give Spurs a strong back-up for Harry Kane and yet more than half-way through the season, he has only scored two goals.

However, on a steaming-hot morning with temperatures well into the nineties it became clear early on that she can properly play. Only then, when serving for the match, did Pera's nerves kick in and Konta broke back to level the set at 5-5.

Neighbours described the Turpin family as "private" and told press they had rarely seen the children coming out of the house. Then, they danced to Presley's "I Can't Help Falling in Love with You". "They spoke often and fondly of their children".

The half ended with the hosts having more possession, but it ended all square with all to play for in the second stanza. Christian Eriksen and Hugo Lloris both miss the match with flu-like symptoms, which they apparently picked up while on the team's training camp to Barcelona. "We work in different names and different options, but you know very well that it's so hard in this transfer window to add some players that can help the team". He's one of the links between phases of play and is key in that regard. We created two massive chances but if you analyse the game it was a fair result.

SouthamptonManuel Pellegrino says he does not fear the sack at Southampton and has backed his side to pull clear of trouble. "We need to improve". Harry Kane and Dele Alli never look as risky when they do not have Eriksen sliding clever passes through to them.

Marco Silva's availability after being sacked by Watford threatened to pile more pressure on Pellegrino but there was enough in this gutsy display to suggest a revival may still be within reach. Moussa Sissoko missed a fantastic chance from close-range for the visitors, while at the other end Stephens headed just wide from a James Ward-Prowse cross. They wait for us draw or lose, and visa versa.
