  • Brace from Steven Davis moves Southampton up to sixth

  • Ronald Koeman's side fought back from 1-0 down after Son's opener

Tottenham's week goes from bad to worse. Defeat today means that Arsenal can still nick second place of them, depending on how the Gunners get on in their remaining two games. Southampton meanwhile are ending the season brilliantly, they move up to sixth and have a Europa League spot within their grasp.


FULL TIME: Tottenham 1-2 Southampton


So close from Chadli! Eriksen pings the free kick into the box that bounces off Wanyama and into the Belgian's path, but Forster leaps across to make a superb block.

Tottenham keep pressed in the final third and Kane tries his luck from range, but his dipping effort is off target. That might be that,


Eriksen whacks another hopeful ball into the box but it's another poor ball that is easily cleared. It allows Long to break but with no one ahead of him, pauses for support, shifting the ball along to Ward-Prowse. He hits a wonderfully clean strike across goal that looks like it might fly into the top corner, but in the end it veers over the cross bar.


Five minutes of stoppage time added on here. Tottenham are looking a bit frustrated here.


Chadli and Kane go for the same ball as a cross is stood up at the back post, but sneak a corner out of it.


Another change for Southampton, James Ward-Prowse will come on for Tadic.


Kane jinks past a couple of challenges inside the box, cutting back out again as he shapes to shoot but is felled by a challenge from Oriol. There are a few appeals for a foul, but nothing is given.

Southampton respond by punting the ball down for Long to chase onto and it's a race between him and Lloris to see who will get their first. The goalkeeper does, but is sent tumbling by the Republic of Ireland international, who really couldn't get out of the way there. He's shown a yellow card anyway.


Not a lot is coming off for Spurs at the minute. Their final ball is letting down and a couple of corner kick decisions have gone against them in the last few minutes. They have 10 minutes plus stoppage time to find a goal.


Wanyama hauls down Lamela as he breaks to goal and Spurs have a free kick from 30 yards out. It looks like it has Eriksen written all over it, but Lamela, having won it, takes instead but steers one clear over the bar.


Southampton take the lead through Davis! After playing a one two with Tadic, the Northern Ireland international skips past a couple of weak challenges and drives a low effort into the bottom corner. Precise effort from the Saints midfielder and suddenly Tottenham's second place finish isn't looking so assured.


Goal! Tottenham 1-2 Southampton (Steven Davis, 71)


In case you haven't noticed, it's roasting out today so the referee has stopped play so everyone can get some water on board.


The ball breaks to Walker on the edge of the box and is invited to shoot by the crowd. He obliges, but sees his effort charged down. From the corner, Eriksen picks the ball up inside the box and looks to curl one into the far post, only for it be deflected wide by his teammate Mason!


Changes from both sides, Mane's afternoon is over as he is replaced by Graziano Pelle. For Tottenham, Clinton N'Jie, making his first appearance since December, comes on for Son.


Vertonghen meets a Tottenham corner with a looping header having pulled away from Wanyama but his seemingly goal-bound effort is cleared away. Tottenham opt for short corner with the next one, but Lamela's eventual ball into the box is a poor one and sails out of play.


Eric Dier looks like he's struggling having just nicked the ball away from Mane with an excellent challenge.


Kane and Romeu race for a loose ball 30 yards out from the Saints goal and the striker wins, knocking the ball on a yard before lashing a powerful shot on goal. His effort is always rising however and that won't be troubling Forster.


Change for Southampton, Oriol Romeu will come onto replace Clasie.


Eriksen swings a peach of a cross into the box from the right that looks destined for Kane, but Fonte puts just enough pressure on his man to ease him of its path.


Tottenham lose the ball in midfield and invite Mane to break down the right. He tries to scoop the ball into the Long inside the box but Alderweireld can clear.

Tottenham don;t have it back for long however and Tadic can come forward, looking for Long again inside the box. This time he gets his head to the ball, but nods wide of the far post. Great chance passed up by the Republic of Ireland international.


Southampton have started the far better of the two sides in this second half, pinning Spurs back into their own territory and denying them the space to find those crisp passes we saw in the first 45.


Tottenham will a free kick out on the right wing that also sees Mane booked and Eriksen can lift a cross into the box. Southampton players keep to their men however and Fonte nuts the delivery away to safety.


And we are back underway for the second half.
