Tottenham Hotspur defender Ben Davies has suffered a dislocated shoulder in his side's Premier League match with Southampton.

Davies, 22, slipped awkwardly while chasing Saints' winger Saido Mane into his own box in the 76th minute of the 2-2 draw at St Mary's Stadium on Saturday, 25 April, and had to leave the pitch on a stretcher.

However, Spurs manager Mauricio Pochettino played down the severity of the injury as the club await the results of a scan on the player's shoulder.

"Davies is OK," the Tottenham boss said after the match. "He suffered a (shoulder) dislocation but he is much better now. We need to assess him in the next few days."

It is doubtful that Davies will play during Tottenham's remaining four games of the season and Wales' European Championship qualifier against Belgium on 12 June.

Pochettino returned to St Mary's for the first time since leaving the club for Tottenham last summer.

Graziano Pelle capitalised on mix-up in the Spurs defence to give his side the lead after 29 minutes, but they were pegged back two minutes from half time when Erik Lamela diverted Harry Kane's flick on past Kelvin Davis in the Saints' goal.

The Argentine appeared to use his arm to direct his effort on goal, but referee Jonathan Moss allowed the goal to stand.

Pelle added his second of the afternoon after 65 minutes, meeting Shane Long's cross with a superb header. But the home side were pegged back again five minutes later when Nacer Chadli was released down the inside right before calmly slotting home an equaliser.

Pochettino was greeted by jeers from sections of the home support but Tottenham's travelling support responded with chants of the Argentine's name.

"I want to thank the Spurs fans because they were fantastic and I felt their support on the pitch," Pochettino told the BBC post-match.

"They touched me because they backed me a lot."
