Tottenham FC have been dealt yet another blow to their top four ambition as they suffered a 2-1 defeat at Southampton’s St Mary’s stadium today.

Spurs had hoped to continue on a winning spree following their midweek Round of 16 win over Borussia Dortmund in the Champions League but The Saints had other ideas.

But Yan Valery, who scored his first senior goal against Manchester United last week, scrambled home an equaliser with 14 minutes of normal time left before James Ward-Prowse’s stunning free-kick snatched the win.
